Advanced Dental Services & Technology – McKinney, TX
Bringing You the Best of Modern Healthcare
Dentistry is a constantly growing field that’s becoming even more sophisticated thanks to the introduction of advanced technology. Dr. Cha keeps up to date with recent advancements and makes a point of incorporating the latest advancements into our dental office whenever they can help us offer more comfortable, more precise, and all-around higher quality care for our patients. Call us today if you have any questions about our dental office.
It’s very, very hard to take a close look at your own mouth. As such, dentists used to have to rely on spoken word alone to explain existing dental issues to their patients. But with intraoral cameras, we can capture images of your teeth and gums that can be displayed right away on our chairside monitor, letting us point directly to the concerning areas so that we can better explain the positive effects of specific treatment options.
X-rays are nothing new to dentistry, but digital X-rays represent a significant upgrade over traditional film ones. For one, they don’t have to be developed in a separate darkroom. The images they capture are ready for viewing right away, and we can magnify or color-code specific areas to improve patient understanding. And because they reduce radiation exposure by up to 80%, they are much safer for our patients to use.
3D Cone Beam Imaging
Taking digital X-rays can tell us a lot about your oral health, but it only captures so much information. 3D cone beam imaging can be used to put together 3D images of your teeth, soft tissues, nerve pathways, and jawbone with just one scan. Such a high level of detail makes it possible for us to plan more advanced procedures such as dental implant surgery, and it greatly improves our ability to diagnose dental issues hidden from the naked eye.
Nitrous Oxide Sedation Dentistry
Do you find yourself getting nervous whenever you need to visit the dentist, even if it’s for completely routine reasons? Nitrous oxide can take the edge off of your appointments so that you can just sit back and relax while we work on your teeth. You’ll be in a state of euphoria and contentment while you’re breathing in the sedative, and afterward, it will only take a few minutes for the effects to wear off so that you can continue with the rest of your day.
