Advanced Dental Services & Technology – Deer Park, TX
Dental Care That's
Our team at Deer Park Dental takes pride in keeping up with developments in dentistry. Dr. Mosley takes many continuing education courses every year to keep his skills sharp and to learn about the most innovative technology available. Then, we bring the best back to our practice to help our patients get the most value from their dental visits. Want to learn about the kinds of technology and advanced services we offer? Just read the information below.
Nitrous Oxide Sedation
If the thought of visiting the dentist fills you with anxiety, we have a gentle way to ease your mind. Inhaled through a nasal mask, nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, is safe for patients of all ages and starts working within minutes. It creates a warm feeling of contentment and relaxation, so you can sit back without worries while we perform necessary dental work on your smile. Then, once we’re finished, the effects wear off quickly, allowing you to get back to your day.
At Deer Park Dental, we work hard to build trust with our patients. One way we do that is by providing as much information as we can about their oral health issues and treatment options. Our Trios 3Shape & IRIS Intraoral Cameras allow us to do just that. Instead of having to describe a problem that we identify in your mouth to you, we are able to show you exactly what we see with this small device.
Although X-rays have been around for many years now, digital technology now makes these images better than ever! Rather than using harsh chemicals to develop film, we are able to view the digital X-ray images right away on our screens, helping us diagnose and treat problems faster. The Dexis X-ray technology also emits far less radiation, which means that you don’t have to worry about your health and safety when you choose us.
Digital Impression System
If you’ve ever had a dental crown placed in the past, you likely remember the old-fashioned putty impressions, which had to be held in place for a prolonged period of time. This method can be very uncomfortable and sometimes results in ill-fitting restorations or appliances because of human error. However, our Trios 3Shape digital impression system gathers data accurately to produce the perfect fit the first time without the discomfort and mess that comes with putty impressions.
Soft Tissue Laser
Occasionally, the problem doesn’t have to do with the teeth, but rather with the gums. With a soft tissue laser, we are able to treat gum disease and eliminate infected tissue without having to make incisions with a scalpel or rely on sutures to promote healing. Instead, our soft tissue laser cauterizes as it cuts, keeping bleeding to a minimum and reducing the amount of time needed to heal.
Cavity Detection System
Early on in development, tooth decay can actually be challenging to identify with the naked eye. Unfortunately, that means that some cavities are allowed to worsen, harm teeth, and radiate pain. To make sure that we catch cavities as soon as possible, we use the Diagnodent cavity detection system to illuminate where tooth decay has started to take effect. That way, we can treat the area before it causes any real damage or gives you any pain.
