Lowrance Dental uses the newest technologies in digital radiography, detection scanning and image enhancement software to provide the safest and highest quality preventive dental care for Rockwall residents.
Dr. Lowrance uses digital sensors instead of traditional X-ray film, which offers many significant advantages. The digital platform provides increased resolution and zooming power for better imaging quality. Coupled with Logicon Detector software, scans now reveal the earliest stages of decalcification, even before decay begins. This leads to early and more accurate diagnosis. Earlier detection translates to less invasive and more successful treatments.
This enhanced diagnostic tool also provides:
- Reduced exposure to radiation (75% or more!)
- Instant image preview & processing
- Digital image enhancement
A leading developer of non-invasive cavity detectors, DIAGNOdent puts the power of laser detection to work finding even the smallest cavities. Their probes and scanners are state-of-the-art in protecting and preserving tooth function.
A regular examination schedule is essential for great oral health and hygiene. Early detection of plaque and decay can prevent small problems from becoming larger ones.
CLEANINGS & PERIO (GUM) THERAPY
As we age, routine oral cancer screenings also become important. Certain individuals may be at higher risk, particularly if there is heavy alcohol or tobacco use (cigars, cigarettes, pipes and chewing tobaccos). During screenings, Dr. Stan relies on clinically proven technologies for detecting pathology and precancerous cells.
Many people are unaware of the link between dental health and the overall health of your body. Tooth decay and gum disease are believed to be factors in a variety of conditions, including heart disease. Gum disease has even been linked to pregnant women giving birth prematurely. By following the American Dental Association Guidelines, and scheduling a visit to your dentist very six months, you’ll smile brighter and have healthier teeth and gums.
Here are just a few of the benefits you’ll experience if you receive routine dental cleanings:
- Fresher breath and whiter teeth
- Less extensive dental procedures
- Shorter office visits
Our skilled dental hygienists will perform a thorough exam where they’ll check your teeth and gum—then they’ll gently clean and polish your teeth to perfection!
