The dental technology available today is leaps and bounds ahead of what it was ten years ago. There are many advanced dental technologies in the market which the dentists at Lone Star Dental Care use daily to treat their patients. Ranging from digital x-ray machines to bacteria eliminating lasers, these innovations enable the dentists to perform superior and more efficient treatments as well as improve a patient’s overall experience while in the dental chair. Dental technologies encompass a wide range of tools, equipment, and procedures that enhance the overall comfort of patients, streamlining dental processes, and improving the accuracy of methods.
X-Guide helps the dentists at Lone Star Dental Care diagnose oral health issues while in the early stages. X-Guide can detect cavities, bone degeneration, and even enamel erosion. It can also identify and measure gum recession.
X-Guide combines a wand with an optical scanner. This wand has an attached camera which captures and illuminates your teeth. The optical scanner measures the fluorescence in your teeth, helping us detect cavities, plaque, tartar, bacteria, and other substances.
LANAP Laser Dentistry
The LANAP protocol uses laser dentistry to treat advanced gum disease. With the LANAP approach, patients will receive treatment without the use of scalpels, incisions, or stitches. This procedure is much less invasive and more comfortable than mainstream treatments of the past.
