Our Featured Technology
Your dentist in McKinney, Dr. Bryce Gates, and our team have extensive experience working with lasers and digital technology to ensure patients receive the high level of care they need and deserve. Whether you are coming in for an oral health evaluation or undergoing treatment, enjoy peace of mind knowing we are using the gold standard of equipment to perform all of your procedures and treatments.
The Cone Beam 3D Dental Imaging System provides comprehensive images of the face and jaw using a special software and an image capture device. We can visualize parts of the face and jaw that cannot be analyzed with traditional x-rays. The fast scan time and efficient system helps us accurately assess dental issues and prepare the patient for advanced treatments, such as dental implants.
Patients with periodontal disease may need laser gum disease treatment with the LANAP® protocol. We use the PerioLase® MVP-7™ to perform this procedure, which provides patients numerous benefits including fast healing time, little to no discomfort, and no gum recession.
We can perform an accurate and fast diagnosis of many types of oral health issues by using an intraoral camera. This camera produces images in real time and can help us detect common oral health problems very quickly. Our McKinney cosmetic dentist may also use this camera before cosmetic procedures.
Many patients benefit from needle free anesthesia that can be administered on the gums or below the gum line. It is an attractive alternative to traditional anesthetics and is used to numb soft tissues. We use a blunt tipped applicator to apply the gel to the gums, and numbing occurs within 30 seconds.
Detecting cavities as early as possible is a high priority, which is why we use the DIAGNOdent laser to inspect your teeth. This light emitting device delivers a digital readout for us to detect tooth decay before it becomes a major problem.
We use a digital x-ray system in our practice to obtain high quality images of the mouth and jaw. These produce less radiation than traditional x-rays and help us perform a more accurate diagnosis.
