In fact, few things make us feel as complimented as our dental family letting us know they look forward to their visits after they’ve gotten acquainted with our office and team. Some practitioners might stop there, but we’re always looking for ways to raise the bar—we feel our mindset of doing better each day than we did the day before encourages our cherished guests to do the same, and we get to celebrate those results when you return to relax in the chair. We consistently improve by furthering our education, building strong relationships, investing in the most up-to-date technologies and proven techniques, and treating you the way we ourselves would like to be treated by health professionals.
Digital radiography has been around for a while now, but it’s not something we take for granted. Digital x-ray technology decreases the amount of radiation you and our team are exposed to, and the images can be taken while you relax in the chair. Within minutes, the images we need will be available on the screen for us to examine together.
Before intraoral cameras were invented, dentists had to rely on their eyesight, maybe a pair of Loupes, and the good ol’ dental mirror.
Intraoral cameras are not much larger than your average pen, but the images they snap for us are clear and can be magnified up to 25 times. This helps us identify potential problems earlier and creates the most accurate record of your mouth from visit to visit.
CBCT—cone beam computed tomography—scanners have revolutionized the dental industry in recent years. Where traditional and even digital x-rays only give us a single dimension image, CBCT scanners allow us to see your entire oral health structure anatomically, from every angle. This new dimension of digital technology allows us to diagnose disease and decay sooner, and provide more advanced restorative, endodontic, periodontic, and dental implant treatments with higher precision for better results.
We use The Wand® because we take your comfort seriously. The Wand delivers a virtually painless experience during your treatment by using small, pulsing vibrations that block nerve receptors in your brain while we administer anesthetic. Whether you need decay removed and a filling placed, you need a root canal or an extraction, or you’re going to have an implant placed, your experience should be comfortable.
Gum disease’s most advanced stage, periodontitis, is the leading cause of adult tooth loss. Luckily, gum disease is treatable and preventable. We can treat your gum disease with Arestin®, used in conjunction with deep cleanings (scaling and root planning), and help you combat it at home with PerioSciences® and Oral-B® products.
If you have any questions about the technology we use or the products we offer, or you’re ready to schedule an appointment with your Arlington dentist, Dr. Kasey Hawkins of Crown Dentistry, we’d love to hear from you.(817) 587-8803
