At Granbury Dental Center, we’re dedicated to continuing education and lifelong learning to stay current with the latest advancements in treatments and technology. We pride ourselves on remaining on the forefront of the dental industry, and we love bringing new and improved treatments and technologies back home to our patients in Granbury. Our technology makes for a better dental experience with less discomfort, less invasive procedures, and less time in the chair – with more beautiful and natural results.
In the past, and in many dental offices still, today, having a tooth restored would be quite the process. It required multiple injections, temporaries, an off-site dental lab, several weeks, and several appointments. That’s no fun for anyone.
Thankfully, we’ve invested in a high-tech CEREC milling machine that shrinks the entire process down into a single piece of same day, chairside equipment. We take digital impressions that are quick and painless (without the mouth full of goop), that we then convert into 3D digital models to help us create your new smile with a beautiful crown, bridge or veneers.
We carefully select a block of durable ceramic to perfectly match the exact shade and translucency of your natural teeth. After preparing the tooth, your new restoration is created right here in our office, and we can permanently secure it the very same day. Viola! A restored smile is like magic at Granbury Dental Center.
Laser technology has been one of the greatest advancements in modern medicine and dentistry. Rather than cutting out diseased tissue and sewing the healthy tissue back up again, lasers allow us to target and kill disease and infection while leaving healthy tissue intact – with no scalpels or sutures!
Traditional gum disease treatments are invasive and often leave patients in a lot of pain, only for the disease to persist and have to be re-treated over and over again. Traditional treatments like deep cleanings, scaling and root planing and gum surgery only treat the physical symptoms of the disease, rather than the cause of the disease itself – the bacteria.
PerioLase targets the infection and kills the bacteria, leaving healthy tissue intact, and creating a sterile environment to regrow healthy tissue. The treatment is minimally invasive with minimal discomfort and rapid recovery. Most patients report a pain-free experience with little to no recovery time!
In the past, the only way we could measure your bite was by having you bite down on a piece of carbon paper to reveal the sites of contact. As you can imagine, this system was neither intuitive nor very effective.
At Granbury Dental Center, we’ve invested in advanced T-Scan technology that gives us a comprehensive analysis of your bite. Digital technology identifies premature contacts and imbalanced bite forces to give us a clearer picture of what’s going on in your mouth.
Occlusal analysis helps us in many ways, including orthodontic treatment plans, TMJ treatment, and creating restorations that return balance to your smile. T-Scan technology helps us visualize destructive forces before they become problematic, and get treatments just right the first time, saving you costly repeat visits and remakes.
If you’ve ever tried to look inside your own mouth, you know it’s not an easy task. Looking in other people’s mouths isn’t exactly a cake walk, either, and it’s especially difficult to get them to see what we see. Enter intraoral cameras.
In the past, we used to rely on the magic of sight and the help of a tiny dental mirror to peer around corners. Today, we use intraoral cameras to get an up-close and personal look at every nook and cranny of your mouth.
Not only do intraoral cameras help us detect signs of decay, gum disease and oral cancer earlier than ever before, but they allow you to see what we see. Intraoral cameras provide real-time, high-resolution images on the screen so you can gain a better understanding of your oral health problems and treatment needs. Seeing is believing!
X-ray technology has come a long way in recent years. Digital x-rays have effectively revolutionized the dental and healthcare industries for the better. Digital x-rays are much safer for both patients and technicians because they produce up to 90% less radiation than traditional x-rays.
Not only are digital x-rays safer, but they are also more accurate as they can be taken in a matter of seconds, leaving less chance for movement and human error. There’s no need to get up and walk to an x-ray room or wait for the film to develop. Digital x-rays can be viewed almost instantly so we can get started on your treatment plan to get you healthy.
