Castroville, TX Dentist
Our state-of-the-art technologies ensure accuracy, efficiency, and comfort. Our dental equipment is safe, effective, and well-maintained. Some of our dental technologies include those listed below:
Our dentists very carefully decide when and what kinds of radiographs are taken for patients. Radiographs are x-ray images that are used in combination with low radiation levels in order to capture images of hard-to-see areas of your mouth, such as the interior of your teeth and gums.
In a dental office, radiographs allow your dentist in diagnosing a wide variety of issues, such as cavities, tooth decay, and impacted teeth and/or gums. They also facilitate the examination and determination of one’s bone level, bone health, roots, nerves, lesions (cysts/tumors), and oral damage/trauma.
Due to the invasive nature of radiographs, we make sure to very carefully assess the necessity and type, keeping patient wellbeing, health, and urgency in mind.
An intra-oral camera is a very small device that allows our dentists to be able to see clear and precise images of the patient’s mouth, teeth and gums. Our dentists use this technology to help properly make diagnoses, and enhance their understanding of our patients’ diagnoses. Minute details are shown in clear, defined and enlarged images via these cameras. These detailed images allow a faster and more accurate diagnosis, allowing a faster process for our patients, with less chair time!
