At Waco Family Dentistry, we strive to provide our patients with the very best dentistry available and a large part of that philosophy is keeping up with advances in dental technology. Every year we evaluate the new technologies that become available and determine which can truly be a benefit to our patients, and which are sales gimmicks! Here are some of the advanced tools we have to make you visit the best it can be!
Digital Radiography: We utilize the very latest technology from Sirona. Our Orthophos XG 3D ready panoramic x-ray unit provides the best resolution with the lowest radiation exposure available today. In conjunction with our Schick 33 sensors, we’re able to take the x-rays we need to properly assess any issues occurring in your mouth with the least amount of radiation exposure possible.
Dental Lasers: We have 2 laser systems that we use in our office – the Waterlase MD and the NV Microlaser from denmat. With laser technology, we’re able to promote periodontal healing when used in conjunction with scaling and root planning. We’re also able to perform various soft tissue procedures with greater ease and comfort for the patient.
Schick Intraoral cameras. X-rays only show so much. With our intraoral cameras, we’re able to take detailed digital photos of problem areas to not only show our patients exactly what we see, so that you can be active participants in making decisions about your health, but we also send the photos to your insurance company to help prevent them from denying claims that should be covered.
Vizilite Plus Oral Cancer Detection System. This system allows us to detect oral cancer at its earliest possible stage. The system uses 2 components that can pick up lesions so small that they might be missed by a standard visual examination.
