Have you ever felt left in the dark when it comes to what the dentist is seeing inside your mouth? With the help of an intraoral camera, our team would love to take you on a personal tour. High-resolution images are captured and then transferred to a conveniently placed monitor in the operatory, where we can refer to them time and time again when discussing any concerning findings and potential treatment recommendations with patients. We want you to be a fully informed partner in the oral healthcare journey!
Visual exams are a crucial part of ongoing dental care, but there is a lot going on underneath the teeth and gums that the naked eye can’t glimpse. That’s why digital X-rays are such a crucial part of our treatment process. Unlike traditional film, this technology eliminates the needs for darkrooms or hours-long development periods. Better yet, we’ve cut down radiation exposure by up to 80%, which means they’re much safer for children and adults alike.
Digital X-rays provide a wealth of diagnostic information, but their scope can be somewhat limited when planning more advanced treatment like root canal therapy or surgical dental implant placement. In order to maximize accuracy to the highest degree possible, we’ve chosen to invest in a state-of-the-art Cone Beam here in Frisco! This technology captures three-dimensional imaging of the teeth, jaw, skull, joints, and even facial nerves so that our team can view every single detail that makes up your unique oral health.
