Dental Technology – Katy, TX
Modern Technology for the Current Age
At The Dental People, we strongly believe that staying current with new technology and materials in the oral healthcare field results in big benefits for our valued patients. That’s why you’ll find all kinds of advanced tools and amenities here, from educational intraoral cameras to minimally invasive diode soft tissue lasers to custom restorations that are entirely metal and BPA-free. As a result, each appointment becomes much more efficient and comfortable – and overall success is maximized as well!
Do you wish you had the same view as your dentist during your routine exam? Advanced intraoral cameras make it easy for patients to be just as informed as their dentist when it comes to the current state of their oral health! The handheld device takes highly detailed images of your teeth and many oral structures. With them, we can better explain the need for certain treatments and provide proof to insurance companies if needed!
Digital Dental X-Rays
In the past, capturing x-rays was a tedious and time-consuming process. Today, getting detailed images of all the different areas of your teeth and jaw are incredibly streamlined. In just a few minutes, we can confirm any underlying problems and create a treatment plan that meets your precise needs. Furthermore, digital x-rays reduce radiation exposure by up to 80 percent. Of course, we offer protective shields to ensure total protection, especially for younger patients and pregnant women.
Soft Tissue Laser Dentistry
Laser dentistry has the ability to push us into the future of care and completely transform the way you think about basic dental treatments. With the help of the SOL Diode Laser, we can dramatically reduce the need for traditionally metal tools in favor of something more precise, gentle and comfortable to use. Additionally, our dental laser reduces the amount of time necessary for post-op care because of its ability to seal tissue immediately after contact.
ViziLite Oral Cancer Screenings
Regular oral cancer screenings from a dentist may actually save your life! ViziLite technology can go a long way towards making this process as comprehensive and enlightening as possible. First, we will ask patients to rinse with a solution, followed by the application of a special light that will highlight any potentially cancerous tissue with a very blue color. If our dentists discover anything alarming, they can help you take the next steps towards a proper biopsy.
Zoom! Teeth Whitening
Zoom! Whitening is an outstanding professional system that helps our patients achieve stunning smile improvements in just one appointment – and the process is very safe too. We will start by applying the Zoom! hydrogen peroxide whitening gel. Then, the special Zoom! light is applied to the gel, and both components work together to penetrate even the darkest stains and discoloration. Patients will also be provided with a Zoom! touch-up kit to use at home, ensuring that their brighter teeth last even longer.
The Piezo ultrasonic scaler makes professional dental cleanings more precise, efficient, and comfortable! With the help of ultra-fast vibrations, the tip of this modern device can break up hardened deposits of tartar around the enamel surfaces without causing any damage or discomfort for the patient. This technology is particularly beneficial for anyone who is struggling with gum disease or even especially prone to it – helping you enjoy a healthier, stronger smile that’s free of infection is always a top priority here in Katy.
