Cottonwood Dental Treat Your Teeth With  New Dental Technology

At Cottonwood Dental, we prioritize meeting our patients’ needs and ensuring their comfort. We achieve this by utilizing the latest technological advancements available in the dental profession. Like any other area of healthcare, dentistry has benefited from new technologies, which have made dental treatment faster, more comfortable, and improved aesthetic outcomes. To provide you with the best possible care, we have incorporated new technology into our office.

Digital  X-Rays

Digital X-rays allow our dentists to take an image of the tooth or teeth and put it into an imaging program. Visit Cottonwood Dental in Irving, Texas to learn more.

How Do Digital X-Rays Work?

In this imaging program, there are several tools that can help dentists examine the teeth and surrounding structures with great precision. The digital x-ray, which is a part of this program, is beneficial to patients as it emits almost 80% less radiation compared to the standard x-ray. This is because the digital version of the x-ray is more sensitive to radiation and has been developed keeping the patient’s safety in mind.

Digital Scanning

Digital scanning, also known as 3-D intraoral scanning, uses the latest technology to take pictures and make impressions of the mouth. Digital scanning uses computer-aided software and a wand-shaped tool to create a virtual picture of the mouth. The digital software is extremely accurate, displaying both tissue and teeth. Our doctors use digital scanning to quickly create digital impressions and images for items like crowns, retainers, dentures, or bridges. Intraoral scanning can help identify tooth alignment issues and assist in correcting orthodontic problems with your teeth.

How Does Digital Scanning Work?

Digital scanning uses both a wand and a computer to take impressions of your teeth and mouth. We insert the wand into the patient’s mouth and gently move it around to capture the top and bottom teeth. While the wand moves, the computer captures digital images instantly and displays them on a computer. Patients can sit comfortably during the painless and quick process of taking their impressions.

What Are The Benefits Of Scanning Digital Scanning?

Digital scanning provides many benefits to both the patient and our doctors, and the process can be completed quickly and in one appointment.

  • We use no goopy material, and impressions are quick.
  • The process is easy and comfortable.
  • Digital scanning is extremely accurate.
  • Computer-aided technology provides an image of your teeth and gums right away to help guide the process.
  • Patients can have items like crowns, bridges, retainers, or dentures made accurately and quickly.
  • New digital scanning technology reduces materials and labor, which lowers costs for both the patient and the doctor.
