Dental Technology – Frisco, TX
Technology That Makes a Difference
At Plush Dentistry, we invest in technology that not only makes our dental care more comfortable, but more effective as well. With us, you’ll enjoy your time in the chair as much as the results! We are constantly doing research and investing in our office so we can integrate the latest instruments and techniques, and you’ll benefit from this commitment to progress every time you come to see us. Read on below to learn about just some of the ways we’ll give you a dental experience unlike any other!
NOMAD Digital X-Rays
X-rays allow our team to see your teeth below the gum line where issues like decay, cavities, and even cancer may be hidden from the naked eye, and they ensure that we don’t miss a thing during exams. With all-digital X-rays, we can capture crystal-clear images in a matter of seconds and show them to a patient almost immediately on a nearby monitor. And, the entire process emits 90% LESS radiation compared to regular X-rays, which is great news for both our patients and team!
CS1500 Intraoral Camera
Our intraoral camera solves one of the most basic problems in dentistry: being able to get a good look inside a patient’s mouth. Now, instead of just shining a bright light into your eyes, we can use this small, handheld device to take highly-detailed images of your teeth and gums that can be displayed on a large monitor. This helps us see much more compared to a regular exam, plus your dentist will be able to clearly explain what they are observing so you’ll always be on the same page concerning your oral health.
NV PRO 3 Soft Tissue Laser
The gums are very sensitive tissues, so as you can imagine, treating them with incisions and sutures isn’t exactly comfortable! That’s exactly how dentists used to do things, but with our soft tissue laser, we’re now able to eliminate gum disease and provide cosmetic gum lifts as quickly and painlessly as possible. With the laser, there is virtually no pain, bleeding, or swelling—most patients don’t even need local anesthetic to stay relaxed during treatment!
Electric handpieces enable our dentists to improve the precision of their care while also keeping patients more comfortable during routine treatments. They allow us to clean your teeth in record time and remove decayed enamel while causing virtually no trauma to the surrounding tissues. The end result is that a patient basically doesn’t feel anything, and before they know it, the appointment is over and their smile looks/feels great!
Even though the teeth might seem smooth on the surface, they actually have quite a bit of texture, and there are small spaces between them and the gums where decay and plaque can easily hide. Fortunately, with magnification loupes, we’re able to see absolutely everything going on in your smile. With them, we can make sure restorations fit perfectly, that all infected tissue is gone after a root canal, and that a cosmetic treatment looks absolutely stunning.
DryShield Isolation System
The DryShield is an all-in-one system that enables our team to work on a single part of your mouth while blocking your bite and protecting your airway. Instead of just sitting there holding your mouth open, this tool allows you to relax your jaw and gives your dentist the easy access to whatever portion of your mouth needs attention. This helps appointments go by much faster because it allows a dentist to work efficiently, plus you won’t feel sore even after a long appointment!
