You probably remember a dark time in the not-so-distant past when getting dental work required you to sit with nasty impression goop in your mouth for several minutes, while trying to not move, and not gag. Yuck. Thankfully, today, with advanced 3D imaging technology, we can easily take digital impressions that precisely map out every nook and cranny of your mouth, without the mouth full of putty.
Our 3D imaging machine captures the unique shapes and contours for a complete 3D digital model that can be used to create brand new restorations and treatment plans.
Digital x-rays have truly revolutionized the dental and healthcare industries. Digital x-rays are safer as they use less radiation than traditional x-rays and more convenient as they can be taken in a matter of moments and viewed alongside the doctor, right from the dental chair. Digital x-rays give us a faster, more accurate picture of what’s going on below the surface in your mouth. This gives patients a better insight into their oral health and allows us to provide better treatment plans for our patients.
The revolutionary iTero Element assists with diagnosis and treatment planning by taking digital impressions of the teeth and gums, providing a 3D model of the mouth while the patient is still in the dental chair. There’s no putty, no discomfort, and very little waiting. The iTero Element’s digital impressions are so complete and so accurate, guesswork about the desired outcome is a thing of the past!
In the past, the only way we could get an up close and personal look at the surfaces in your mouth was through the magic of sight with the help of a tiny dental mirror. Today, intraoral cameras give us a whole new dimension of insight into your oral health. Intraoral cameras give us real-time, high-resolution images of your mouth, allowing us to detect and diagnose abnormalities, infections, and decay earlier than ever before.
The best thing about intraoral cameras, however, is they let patients see what we see. It is sometimes difficult for patients to understand their oral health needs when they cannot see the problem for themselves. Intraoral cameras help patients see their problems firsthand, allowing them to better understand the need for treatment.
In the past, the only way we could detect oral cancer was once it became visible as an abnormality. Thankfully, new oral cancer screening devices allow us to illuminate tissue abnormalities before they become visible to the naked eye.
OralID™ uses proven fluorescence technology to illuminate tissue abnormalities, pre-cancer, and oral cancer cells before they are visible to the naked eye, allowing for earlier diagnosis and saving lives. Unlike other oral cancer screening devices, OralID™ doesn’t require any rinses or dyes and has no per-patient cost during use because it is simple, hand-held device that’s affordable and convenient. OralID™ oral cancer screening devices are a product of Forward Science® and are proudly assembled right here in Texas.
