As with everything else, technology and computers have revolutionized how dentistry is performed, and the biggest beneficiaries of that are patients like you. At Gulf Dental, we use dental technology to help detect potential dental problems before they can become major dental problems.
3D Cone Beam
The 3D cone beam, or cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) technology, can be used to help detect bite problems like TMJ. It can also be used to aid with dental implant procedures. There are also many other conditions that can be detected or treated with the use of CBCT. The use of 3D digital imagery is a formidable tool in the Gulf Dental toolkit.
Digital X-rays are much more efficient than traditional x-rays because they allow us to immediately share with you the results of what we see. Also, unlike traditional X-ray images, digital images are much clearer, which makes it easier for us to explain what we see and why it is or is not a concern.
Our dental technology allows us to perform fully digital examinations during your office visits, which reduces the amount of time you will spend at the dental office. It also reduces the amount of time it takes to detect, diagnose and treat dental problems.
Soft Tissue Laser
There are many uses for soft tissue lasers, including periodontal gum contouring. This procedure is used to treat tooth decay, gingivitis, and periodontal disease. The process is done by using the soft tissue laser to remove part of the gum, which is necessary to properly treat the relevant condition. Another use for the soft tissue laser is for reshaping gums that are too high and cover too much of the teeth.
