Advanced Dental Services & Technology – San Antonio, TX
Repairing, restoring, and rebuilding smiles cannot be accomplished without a well-trained and experienced dentist, a trusted team of dentistry professionals, and state-of-the-art technology. Dr. Pham is always keeping an eye on what new advancements are being made in the field, which is why he offers only the very best to dental patients living in San Antonio and its surrounding communities. Ensuring optimal results without the long recovery times, these upscale innovations create a one-of-a-kind experience for smiles of all ages.
With the inclusion of intraoral cameras, our dental team can see the inside of a patient’s mouth while projecting real-time images onto a nearby screen for easy viewing. Both Dr. Pham and our patients can visualize the teeth and gums and pinpoint possible problems early on. By allowing individuals to see the exact area of concern, we can thoroughly explain the need for treatment while also creating a more educational dental experience.
Previous radiographs left much to be desired. Not only did they emit higher levels of radiation, but they also proved timely to develop and lacked the ability to produce clear images. Fortunately, that has changed, and we now use digital X-rays. Emitting much less radiation than before, these images are high resolution, making it possible for our team to create thorough treatment plans based on more accurate imaging.
Digital X-rays have their advantages; however, for more extensive and complex dental care, CBCT imaging is beneficial and necessary. Taking a 360-degree scan of a patient’s head, it takes hundreds of images to produce one three-dimensional model of their teeth, jawbone, gums, nerves, and other oral structures. The 3D Cone Beam Scanner is ideal when planning for surgeries such as dental implant placement or root canal therapy.
Laser Diagnosis and Dental Treatment
Dental lasers are highly effective and safe to use. Capable of detecting tooth decay as well as treating gum disease, eliminating cancerous cells inside the mouth, removing cavities, and assisting with gum surgery, laser treatment is a less invasive way to improve oral health with minimal bleeding, swelling, and risk of infection.
