Every time you have your smile reviewed, you have the opportunity to learn about recent problems that have yet to cause you discomfort. This early detection can be more important than you realize. Problems with cavities will require in-office treatment as soon as they arise. Unfortunately, if you only see your dentist when you believe something is wrong, you can find that your issues with decay have progressed to a point where you need a more involved procedure to address the matter properly. For decay and other threats, timely support matters. At our Houston, TX dental office, we can provide thorough reviews, and do so while prioritizing your comfort, thanks to the use of advanced imaging technology!
We Can Provide A Thorough Review Of Your Smile At Our Practice
When you come in for a routine dental exam, or when you need to see us about a potential oral health issue, we can provide a thorough study of your teeth, gums, and oral structure. The right review can ensure that any problems you have are caught promptly and addressed before there are complications. In addition to x-ray technology and intraoral cameras that help us look into different issues with your well-being, we actually have technology that lets us map out your bite pressure and look for issues that can cause headaches, jaw pain, and other issues associated with TMJ disorder.
How X-Ray Technology And Intraoral Cameras Keep You Informed
We use digital x-ray technology to provide evaluations for our patients. In addition to emitting significantly less radiation than traditional x-rays, this technology can provide remarkably vivid images in a short time, which means we can more easily discuss your smile health with you. With our intraoral cameras, we have what we need to closely study teeth and gum tissues in areas that are harder to inspect. By taking a closer look at these spaces, we can catch those issues that might be easily overlooked.
We Can Also Use Advanced Technology To Help With TMJ Issues And Headaches
Through the use of TruDenta, we can closely evaluate your bite function and search for any irregularities in how you apply and release pressure. Once discovered, these issues can be treated through corrective work to ease tension on your joints and muscles. Doing this helps with headaches, persistent jaw pain, teeth grinding, and more!
