When you seek care at our office, be assured that Dr. Davis and his staff utilize the latest technology to enhance the quality of your dental care.
At its core, dentistry is micro-surgery. Using eye loops (loops are specialized glasses that function like a wearable microscope) enables Dr. Davis to create dental restorations with incredible precision, fit and finish. That level of care isn’t possible with the naked eye. Ultimately, Dr. Davis chooses to wear loops to enhance the precision of patient care.
Many dentists use air-driven handpieces (drills), however, Dr. Davis uses electric handpieces because air-powered handpieces suffer from a degree of non-concentricity. High speed handpieces result in extraordinarily precise interfaces between your tooth and the new restoration (crown, veneer, or filling). Additionally, the reduction in vibration and noise allows for greater patient comfort.
Digital imaging allows us to quickly and easily transfer patient images to specialists and insurance companies. When the patient is referred to a specialist, any images taken in our office are sent in advance. When images are sent to the insurance company digitally, the claims reimbursement process is expedited. The insurance consultant is able to see what Dr. Davis sees at the chair. Often times, this clears up any misunderstandings between Dr. Davis and the insurance consultant reviewing your case.
Digital imaging enables our staff to retrieve valuable diagnostic information through the enhanced software tools. We are able to enlarge, magnify, change contrast, colorize, increase clarity, and reverse the image in order to aid Dr. Davis in both diagnosing and treating the patient.
Dental X-Rays enable us to detect cavities in between the teeth, determine bone level and analyze your overall dental health. We can also examine the roots and nerves of teeth, diagnose lesions such as cysts or tumors, and assess damage when trauma occurs. X-Rays are an invaluable diagnostic tool that Dr. Davis utilizes in order to provide the best care for his patients.
Dental radiographs are invaluable aids in diagnosing, treating, and maintaining dental health. Exposure time for dental radiographs is extremely minimal, however, with digital X-Rays, exposure time is about 50 percent less when compared to traditional radiographs. The overall exposure to radiation is significantly reduced when utilizing digital X-Rays. In order to keep our patients safe, we follow guidelines put in place by the ADA (American Dental Association), FDA (Food and Drug Administration) and the TDA (Texas Dental Association). In addition to our in-house quality control program, our X-Ray machines are frequently monitored and evaluated by the Texas Department of State Health Services, Radiation Control Program.
Dr. Davis utilizes intraoral camera technology to enhance your understanding of your diagnosis. An intraoral camera is a very small camera used inside the oral cavity to produce clear, precise images of your mouth, teeth and gums. Dr. Davis has a screen placed at the foot of the patient chair in every treatment suite . This allows for easy, private viewing during patient education. Details that may be missed by standard examinations are highlighted with clear, defined, and enlarged images.
