If you regularly struggle with chronic jaw pain or unexplained headaches, TMJ disorder (also known as TMD) could be the unexpected culprit. This disorder occurs when the temporomandibular joints, which control jaw movement, experience strain or dysfunction of some kind, leading to unpleasant and even debilitating symptoms. Thankfully, our dental office is very familiar with this condition and offers several types of treatment, including custom-made occlusal splints and clinical bite adjustments. Our goal is to leave you with a healthier smile and lasting relief!
Many patients feel disconnected from the dental care they’re receiving because they can’t actually see what the doctor sees as they peer into their mouth – but modern intraoral cameras change this for the better! Now, one of our team members can carefully navigate a camera-tipped wand through your wand and capture high-resolution images that are then made viewable on a chairside monitor. Dr. Caballeros or Dr. Parra can use these images as a helpful guide to explain concerning findings, possible treatment options, and more.
There is quite a bit of valuable information about your oral health that’s well-hidden beneath the surfaces of teeth and gums. With digital X-rays, diagnostic care is much simpler and more comprehensive! Unlike traditional radiography, we no longer need hazardous chemicals, darkrooms, or hours of waiting – the X-rays are developed instantly! Better yet, any radiation exposure is drastically minimized, which makes this process very safe for patients of all ages.
CT/Cone Beam Scanner
While digital X-rays are an enormously valuable part of dental care, their scope can be somewhat limited in certain cases. This is especially true when planning complex procedures like root canal therapy and dental implant surgery, where exceptional precision is of the utmost importance. At On Point Dentistry, we use the revolutionary VaTech CBCT (Cone Beam Computed Tomography) to capture three-dimensional, panoramic X-rays of the patient’s oral structures, including their sinuses, facial nerves, and overall jaw. This added insight leads to more confident treatment plans and bolstered success!
Digital Impression System
Do you remember the days of having to sit still in the treatment chair while the dentist pressed a trayful of unpleasant putty over your teeth and held it in place? While this process was necessary for creating an accurate impression that could be turned into mouthguards, dental restorations, or other similar services, most patients find it extremely uncomfortable and even gag-worthy. Thankfully, our team has invested in the 3M digital scanner, which does away with it entirely! Now, the creation of an impression is completed with a series of no-contact scans that lead to fast and accurate results.
