Flower Mound Dental is proud to offer some of the most cutting edge technology in the dental profession. Our services aim to meet every need you have, while keeping you comfortable, and giving you the most exceptional dental experience ever.
The following advanced dental technology allows us to do just that:
The dental implant treatment restores confidence in your smile. You can speak clearly and eat the foods you love.
Our digital x-ray system reduces the amount of radiation you receive by over 80% compared to traditional x-rays.
CBCT, 3D digital, computerized X-Rays
The CBCT is new technology which allows us to see the teeth and surrounding structures in three dimensions and in MUCH greater detail. In Dr. Wyatt’s opinion, this technology is ESSENTIAL for the proper planning and placement of dental implants. In addition CBCT images are very useful in assessing other dental problems, such as infections in the bone caused by a tooth abscess, tumors, impacted teeth, and many other dental problems.
This small dental laser is capable of detecting very small, early cavities in teeth, enabling us to detect cavities when they’re smaller, which results in a smaller restoration.
Dr Wyatt uses two types of camera for this.
One is a high tech video camera at the end of a small wand which allows us to put pictures of what we see in your mouth on a TV monitor.
The other is the use of a professional level digital camera (DSLR) with a special macro lens and flash attached to take highly detailed images of either individual teeth, several teeth, all the teeth, or even portrait level face photography. Dr. Wyatt feels that having proper photographs are just as important as having proper x-rays, all to take better care of you, your teeth and your smile for a lifetime.
Intra-Oral 3D Scanning
This is exciting new technology, taking the place of dental impressions (molds) in most cases. Remember having to take impressions, (molds) of your teeth, either for an appliance, such as a retainer, or maybe a crown or bridge? Much of that is no longer needed. In most cases we now use a 3D scanner. This is a camera on a wand-like device which takes hundreds of small 2D images, about 10/second. The computer then “stitches” these images together to make a 3D image of your teeth. In most cases, we no longer need to take conventional dental impressions, (molds), instead we use the scanner. .
For patients with moderate gingivitis through severe periodontitis, this helps provide a more convenient, comfortable treatment.
Laser Periodontal Therapy, LANAP
This is a way to treat periodontal disease using a, “No Cut, No Sew, No Fear” approach.
