Our team at Texas Dentistry is completely committed to delivering unparalleled service and healthy smiles for patients of all ages. That means using state-of-the-art methods to make diagnosis and treatment faster, more effective, and more comfortable. We have equipped our Kaufman dental office with technology that enhances our patients’ experience and improves the quality of our work beyond the norm. Keep reading to learn about all the fascinating technology and techniques we use in our dental office.
In the past, when a dentist found a problem, the patient would just have to trust their word and go with whatever the dentist said. At Texas Dentistry nowadays, we use the DEXIS™ intraoral camera, which enables us to show you exactly what we see in your mouth. As a result, you are able to become an equal partner in your oral health and make more informed decisions for your treatment.
We carefully decide when we need to take a radiograph. Radiographs allow us to see things that our eyes can’t and enable us to detect cavities in your teeth and analyze the health of your bone. They also let us look at the roots and nerves of your teeth to assess any trauma or damage. Dental radiographs are essential to diagnosing, treating, and maintaining your dental health. Our digital technology cuts the exposure time to half compared to traditional radiographs, and it also gives us a better picture of the inside of your mouth. These digital images can then easily be sent to you, other specialists, or your insurance company as required.
When you think of advanced or futuristic technology, chances are that you envision some kind of fancy laser. Well, at Texas Dentistry, we use lasers every day to perform many necessary tasks without needing to resort to outdated, more invasive measures. In fact, with laser dentistry, common post-operative symptoms like bleeding or swelling are practically nonexistent, meaning that you heal much faster and have a more pleasant dental experience. By taking advantage of laser dentistry, we can offer better services for our patients.
We like to use the very latest technology in our dental office, so you get the best quality dental care available. To make our patient care more precise, we use high-powered microscopes to get as up-close as possible.
In essence, all dentistry is a kind of micro-surgery. By using the same sort of microscope as an ophthalmologist, we can create perfect-fitting dental restorations—far better than those made using just the naked eye. As well as making our work more precise, the microscope focuses light only on the teeth, so that there is no glare in your eyes.
Many dentists use air-driven drills. While these are suitable for many procedures, these whining air-powered drills don’t rotate perfectly smoothly, and are therefore not suitable for more complicated jobs that require more meticulous attention.
In these cases, we will instead use an electric drill, which results in highly precise interfaces between your natural tooth and your new restoration. This tool also causes less vibration and noise, creating a calmer environment.
