New Dental Technology Available in Austin, TX
There are continuous advances in dental technology. Modern equipment is continually introduced to dentists in and around Austin. At Broberg and Tieken Dental we carefully review any and all opportunities to better treat our patients. Whether it’s advancements making older methods obsolete or new technology and procedures available to help you get the healthy and beautiful smile you deserve, we strive to keep our practice ahead of the curve leveraging proven modern dental technology. Below are a few of the areas we’ve recently invested in:
VELscope offers easy and painless oral cancer screening. This goes beyond the naked eye to outline areas of potential concern. Early detection and treatment offer the best possible outcome for those diagnosed with oral cancer and VELscope helps us help you very effectively.
Digital x-rays have significant benefits. By using these in our Austin dental office we save on energy, we get more accurate results on screen (which can be used here in our office and / or save you time with referrals), and they offer you, the patient, significantly less exposure to radiation.
Digital impressions offer great accuracy and are highly effective, especially when compared to tray and putty or bite impression paper. This technology is used in a variety of ways including in crafting dental restorations for cosmetic dentistry procedures.
PerioProtect for Gum Disease
Gum Disease is destructive. It robs you of your teeth and it can impact a number of health areas as well as put you at unnecessary risk of premature death. PerioProtect involves customized trays and medication that offer a minimally invasive periodontal disease treatment.
Dental lasers are used in gum contouring, biopsies, and more. It eliminates the need for stitches and offers a much more conservative approach to soft tissue procedures.
DIAGNOdent enables Dr. Broberg and Dr. Tieken to find cavities easily. Early detection can mean that more of your natural tooth is preserved!
