Our Advanced Services & Technologies
Technology is changing the world at an ever-quickening pace, and the same can be said for dentistry, especially at Celebration Family Dental of Carrollton. Our office is filled with some of the latest, state-of-the-art tools, and they enable us to solve even more problems and consistently provide increasingly high-quality care. With us, you’ll get the very best of up-to-the-minute dental care every time you come in for an appointment.
“TMJ” stands for temporomandibular joint, which are the small hinges on your lower jaw that allow it to move fluidly whenever you speak, eat, laugh, or yawn. These joints can sometimes become strained or injured, which can lead to a variety of dental and overall health problems, including chronic pain. If you frequently experience a stiff, painful jaw or migraine headaches, your TMJ may be the culprit, and we can help you fix it.
Are you or your child nervous about visiting the dentist? If so, you’re far from alone! For our more anxious patients, we can provide sedation dentistry, which is specifically designed to help lessen any discomfort or stress you might feel in the dental chair. With it, we can finally take the stress out of your dental care.
This small, camera-tipped wand allows both you and your dentist to get a much better look at your smile. It can capture high-resolution images of your teeth and gums which can be displayed on a large chairside monitor. These will make it much easier for our team to spot any hard to find dental issues, plus it’ll give you a chance to finally see your smile from your dentist’s perspective, helping you gain a deeper understanding of your oral health.
X-rays have been an important diagnostic tool in dentistry for a very long time, which is why we’ve upgraded to using the very best version of them: digital x-rays. They’re able to create images much faster than traditional, film-based x-rays, and they even emit up to 90% less radiation. Plus, because everything is digital, the images can be easily stored, sent, and displayed so your dentist can fully explain what they are seeing.
Dental lasers allow our team to perform a number of different treatments faster and with much more precision. They are especially useful when it comes to treating gum disease, as the concentrated beam of light is able to quickly eliminate harmful bacteria as well as painlessly remove any infected tissue. This can all be done while leaving the surrounding healthy tissue completely untouched, making both the procedure and recovery more comfortable.
