At Vista Ridge Family Dentistry in Cedar Park, we believe our patients deserve the best care available. That’s why we’re proud to invest in only the most advanced dental technology on the market. For our family of patients, better technology means:
Air abrasion is a wonderful little tool that allows us to keep more healthy tooth structure intact when removing decay – and without a dental drill. Air abrasion uses a tiny but powerful stream of air mixed with fine particles to remove areas of decay while leaving healthy tooth structure intact, sort of like a sand blaster.
Dental caries, or tooth decay, is one of the most common chronic diseases in the world – second only to the common cold. The good news is, it’s preventable. If a healthy diet, a good oral homecare routine and regular visits with your Cedar Park dentist aren’t enough, we’re happy to offer a line of CariFree® specialty products to help patients keep tooth decay at bay.
Digital x-rays have truly revolutionized the dental and healthcare industries. Digital x-rays are safer as they use less radiation than traditional x-rays, and more convenient as they can be taken in a matter of seconds, and viewed alongside the doctor right from the dental chair. This allows patients to take a more active role in their oral health decisions.
In the past, the only way we could get an up-close and personal look at the surfaces of your mouth was through the magic of sight with the help of a tiny dental mirror. Thankfully, advanced intraoral camera technology allows us to use a tiny camera to take high-resolution images that we can view in real time, allowing for earlier diagnosis and detection of disease and decay.
Similar to the intraoral camera, the only way we used to be able to detect cavities and decay was through sight. Our Diagnodent® laser cavity detection technology uses a low level laser to illuminate areas of decay that would otherwise go unseen by the naked eye. This allows us to diagnose and treat decay earlier to prevent decay from progressing.
As your trusted oral health advisors, one of our most important jobs is to perform regular oral cancer screenings. That’s why we’ve invested in a high-tech oral cancer screening device that uses tissue fluorescence visualization to illuminate tissue abnormalities that would otherwise go unseen by the naked eye. This allows for earlier diagnosis, which can save lives.
Let’s face it, nobody likes having to sit with a bunch of goopy, nasty putty in their mouth to have dental impressions taken. Thankfully, those days are behind us at Vista Ridge Family Dentistry. We’ve invested in a high-tech 3M Scanner that takes high-precision digital impressions we use to create beautiful restorations and oral appliances for our patients.
When it comes to your oral health, you should never settle for second best. Come see us at Vista Ridge Family Dentistry and experience the difference that advanced technology can make for your oral health, and your dental experience.
