Technology

Technology can make your treatment more efficient, effective, and comfortable!

Dr. Namrata Shah is always on the lookout for new technology to deliver you better care. Here are some of the ways we have incorporated technology into our Lewisville dental office so you can enjoy outstanding results when it comes to your smile.

Digital Dental X-Rays with Nomad

Digital dental x-rays have many advantages over traditional film x-rays. Not only do they produce the highest resolution images available, but they also provide greater safety for our patients. With up to 80 percent less radiation than traditional x-rays, we can diagnose dental conditions at the earliest stages of development when they are easier to treat.

Nomad is a handheld device we use to take your dental x-rays. It allows us to reduce the number of retakes necessary and get the right image for accurate diagnosis.

Additional benefits include:

  • Instant results
  • Secure storage in your digital chart
  • Highest quality images
  • Easy transfer to specialists or insurance companies
  • Better for the environment

Digital x-rays are a regular part of your dental care. By diagnosing conditions early, we are able to give you and your family the best protection for your smiles.

Paperless Charts

By eliminating paper charts, we can protect your personal information. This also allows us to closely monitor changes to your oral health with side-by-side comparisons from visit to visit.

All your information is encrypted and saved to our secure server.

Electronic charts make it easy to transfer information between dental offices for use by specialists. We can also securely submit information to your insurance company for more efficient benefit reimbursement.

Nitrous Oxide Sedation

If you have a fear of the dentist, nitrous oxide sedation can help you relax during your dental appointment.

We deliver nitrous oxide to our patients through a small nose mask. It is safe for most patients because it enters and leaves your system quickly, making it possible for you to immediately resume your normal activities. Nitrous oxide is so mild, we can even use to help kids relax.

Panoramic X-Rays

X-rays are an important diagnostic tool to help us identify any oral conditions that exist. A panoramic x-ray gives us a complete picture of your bone, jaw joints, and the roots of your teeth.

Panoramic x-rays move around your entire head and show us in-depth information about your oral health. We can use panoramic x-rays to determine whether wisdom teeth require removal or if your jaw joints have been affected by TMJ disorders.

Our panoramic x-rays are digital, making them safer with up to 80 percent less radiation.

IsoDry

IsoDry offers retraction, moisture control, and patient comfort with one innovative instrument.

IsoLite’s soft, flexible mouthpiece gently retracts and supports your jaw and provides protection for your cheeks and tongue during procedures. It also acts as a barrier to prevent swallowing of dental materials during treatment. The aspirator keeps your mouth dry, eliminating the need for cotton rolls packed all around your mouth and the discomfort of saliva trickling down your throat.

Cavitron

Cavitron's high frequency vibrations help remove tartar both above and below the gumline. Water helps flush away the bacteria and plaque that collect in between dental cleanings. This minimizes the scraping that is common with mid-level and deep dental cleanings, making the patient experience more comfortable.
 

Rotary Endodontics

Rotary endodontics is a technique for performing root canals, utilizing a specific electrical handpiece. This instrument often makes the process faster and allows the dentist to perform the treatment with greater ease, which means a shorter appointment for you.

Intraoral Camera

An intraoral camera is a small digital camera that can take individual pictures of teeth inside your mouth and even record video! This is an important treatment planning and diagnostic tool that assists Dr. Shah in the explanation of your dental conditions.

Seeing what we see helps our patients make sense of their oral health and make more informed decisions regarding treatment. We can take images, monitor changes in your health over time, and even use these photos to provide your insurance company with additional documentation when necessary.

All of your digital images are stored in your digital chart, accessible at the touch of a mouse when needed.

Oral Sedation Dentistry

If you have a fear of the dentist or feel nervous about your appointment, oral sedation dentistry can help you relax. Dr. Shah will administer prescription medication in our office before your treatment. You will feel completely relaxed during your appointment - even if you have multiple procedures scheduled. Oral sedation dentistry is long lasting, so you will need someone to drive you home after your appointment.

Sedation dentistry is also great for patients who have difficulty getting numb or who have a strong gag reflex.

You will have little memory of your appointment because you will feel so relaxed. Your appointment will breeze by. Contact us to learn if you are a good candidate for sedation dentistry.
