Our Dental Technology – Richardson, TX
Dental X-rays are essential for identifying issues that the naked eye cannot see. They reveal how deep cavities have reached, how much jawbone density you have, and other important information for treatment. For many years, these X-rays had to be developed using harsh chemicals in a special room while the patient waited. Nowadays, however, digital technology enables us to see the images almost instantaneously, reducing the amount of time you spend in the chair. Plus, this technology involves less radiation, which is safer for everyone.
Cone Beam CT Scanner
While traditional X-rays are certainly helpful, when it comes to complex procedures, such as dental implant placement, we utilize a more powerful piece of technology. A cone beam scanner takes hundreds of images to create a 3D model of your oral cavity. It captures not only bone and teeth but also blood vessels and nerve endings, allowing our specialists to plan and execute your treatment with more precision, fewer complications, and a higher rate of success.
