What types of dental technology are used?
ACE Dental of Hewitt proudly uses several dental technologies throughout a range of diagnostic and treatment processes. These technologies include:
- Digital X-rays: We use this low-radiation alternative to traditional dental x-rays to screen for dental problems affecting your teeth and jawbone.
- Cone Beam CT Scans: This advanced scanning system quickly takes crisp, highly detailed images of your teeth, jaw, and face, providing us with a more in-depth look at your oral health and any dental needs.
- Intraoral Cameras: With this pen-like tool, our team can take clear, vivid pictures of specific areas within your mouth to allow for a better understanding of any oral health issues.
- iTero Digital Impressions: Instead of using bulky trays and messy materials, we can take comfortable, highly accurate impressions of your mouth with our advanced iTero intraoral scanner.
How do we use advanced dental technology?
Our Hewitt, TX team uses dental technology during the course of care to help patients better understand their health and make more informed treatment decisions. Digital x-rays are generally taken at routine check-up visits to screen for cavities, bone loss, and other oral issues, and when needed to evaluate acute conditions. Cone beam imaging is often extremely helpful when diagnosing oral concerns and planning for implant surgery, tooth extractions, sleep apnea treatment, and other procedures. With iTero digital impressions, we can both increase patient comfort and elevate our precision when customizing dental bridges, crowns, Invisalign aligners, and similar appliances. Our intraoral cameras can help you and your family visualize dental issues, like cracked teeth or plaque buildup, in greater detail.
What should I expect with dental technology?
Prior to taking x-rays, impressions, or performing other services, our team will talk with you about what to expect and answer any questions you have. We are passionate about keeping up with advancements in dental technologies and techniques that increase treatment efficiency and can optimize your oral health results. We implement these innovative solutions into our diagnostic and treatment approaches to enhance the safety and accuracy in meeting your family's treatment needs. Advanced technology can also help create more pleasant dental experiences and may even decrease the time required to complete certain dental procedures.
What does dental technology cost?
A number of dental insurance plans may offer coverage toward advanced technologies and services. A member of our business team will go over your insurance benefits and let you know of any anticipated treatment costs.
