Modern Dental Technology for Roy UT
At Roy Dental Care, we’re always on alert for new dental technologies that will make our patients’ time in the dental chair easier and safer. Plus, we want to give you more effective treatments that will relieve your pain and give you a more amazing smile.
Here are a few of the technologies that we’re proud to share with you.
Digital x-rays deliver high-resolution images of the inside of your teeth and bones within moments. We can quickly see and diagnose any conditions you have and plan how to best help you. You can immediately see the images too.
In addition, digital x-rays emit only about 10% of the radiation that older x-ray systems did. They are therefore much safer, even for children. As an added benefit, we can very easily keep all your past x-rays in our computer system and compare them over the years.
This device works like magic to guide your dentist during injections of anesthetic, aiming to make injections virtually painless through computer assistance.
This will also help keep the anesthetic in only the area where we want to inject it, containing the numbness there—even down to a single tooth.
T-Scan is a state-of-the-art scanning technology for discovering occlusion (contact between teeth) problems that may be causing the painful symptoms of temporomandibular disorder (TMD).
Along with computer software, we use T-Scan to precisely analyze your bite and plan a strategy to correct any bite problems. This can relieve chronic pressure on your muscles, which allows them to heal.
We use this scanning technology to record the electrical activity of your facial muscles. This can help us to find the movements and muscle contractions that may be contributing to temporomandibular disorder (TMD) and other problems.
We can also use EMG to analyze issues with chewing, swallowing, and posture. Finally, EMG scans can get you ready for orthodontic work, discovering how the muscles of your face and jaw will affect the movement of your teeth in the long term.
When you’re preparing to get orthodontic work through Invisalign or to get dentures, you may be expecting to get dental impressions by placing your teeth in a material. With the iTero scanner, we can create digital impressions of your teeth instead!
This method of taking impressions allows us to make your impressions more quickly and accurately, reducing the chance that they’ll be rejected by the laboratory. The technology also helps us better simulate the possible final outcome you’ll get after you receive your dental appliance or aligners.
Dental Diode Laser
Our dental lasers allow us to achieve an amazing level of precision and effectiveness during certain procedures. A few of the uses of this diode laser include treating a cold sore, reshaping abnormal gums, destroying infections in gums, and treating fever blisters.
Our lasers are so precise that they allow us to save more of your enamel and gum tissue than we could with a metal tool. They cause almost no pain while giving brilliant results.
