Advanced Dental Technology – Fort Worth, TX

Improving the Patient Experience with Advanced Technologies

There is a reason so many patients struggle to get excited about visiting the dentist’s office. Apart from the cold atmosphere many offices provide, they also resort to traditional techniques that lack comfort and precision. At Distinguished Dental, you won’t find any of that when walking into our office. Instead, we believe our patients deserve the best, which is why we combine advanced dental technologies in Fort Worth with personalized treatment plans to form a comfortable experience that delivers accurate results.

Digital Dental Impressions

The creation of a dental crown, veneer, or any other type of custom restoration must first start with impressions. While cold, messy, and gag-inducing dental putty was the only method of capturing these molds in the past, we now use a Primescan digital impression system. Scanning the mouth with a handheld, camera-tipped device, it captures high-resolution images that form a 3D model that Dr. McIntosh sends to local laboratories, where comfortable, effective, and long-lasting restorations are created.

Intraoral Camera

It is now easier than ever to show patients what is happening inside their oral cavity. With intraoral cameras, we can scan the mouth and allow the images to project onto a chairside monitor for easy viewing. Patient education is a valuable part of every dental visit. Dr. McIntosh wants to make sure that each patient understands the situation, the recommended treatment plan, and the importance of maintaining healthy teeth and gums.

Digital Dental X-Rays

In the past, patients were exposed to higher levels of radiation when undergoing dental X-rays. While the scans were grainy and less than ideal in quality, they still served as a baseline for many dentists when formulating treatment plans. Thanks to advancements in dentistry, times and technologies have changed. With digital X-rays, we can now capture images of a patient’s smile in seconds without the harmful exposure to increased radiation. With high-resolution images readily available, Dr. McIntosh and her team can quickly produce treatment plans and reduce appointment times.
