When you seek out dental care, you want to know that your provider is on top of the latest procedures and technology. This is why we use advanced digital technology to help form a diagnosis and plan your treatment when you come in for treatment. Modern advancements even allow us to print restorations in our practice rather than making you wait for placement at later appointments. At your Katy, TX dental practice, we provide state-of-the-art treatment using the right solutions for your condition!
Tekscan Pressure Mapping
If you have problems with straining your jaw or a bite imbalance from TMJ and bruxism, we need to measure the application of force from your bite to understand how your teeth fit together. By employing the Tekscan Pressure Mapping system, this digital imaging tool helps us see where force is applied and allows us to plan your corrective treatment in response. Tekscan goes hand in hand with creating a custom oral appliance to help correct the position of your jaw. By relieving your headaches and pain, you can enjoy waking up feeling more refreshed!
When examining your smile, we need to see through to your jaw, tooth roots, and other oral structures to provide a full picture of your oral health. By conducting digital X-rays, we can instantly develop a picture of these areas without having to wait on film. We can project your X-ray in real time on a digital monitor so you may see your results as well. This instant access to imaging helps us plan your treatment with you with precision and accuracy!
3D Printers Can Create Your Dental Device
Advancements in 3D printing technology provide the ability to create a diverse range of dental devices such as crowns, mouth guards, prosthetics, and fillings. By taking digital images of your oral cavity, we can create a computerized model to fabricate a device that fits your unique needs. Instead of waiting for a future visit to receive a device created offsite, we can often provide your oral device in the same visit you receive a diagnosis. By taking impressions with digital cameras, we forego the messy need for gooey physical impressions. This means less mess with a more precise oral device!
