& Implant Dentistry
We’re proud to maintain a modern office that features some of the latest developments in oral healthcare technology. Dr. Pointer’s advanced services and equipment offer patients several valuable benefits, including comfortable care, elevated precision, added safety, increased speed of treatment, and much more. If you’re interested in having a rewarding experience at one of the premier dental practices in Fort Worth, TX, consider paying us a visit.
Intraoral cameras are invaluable diagnostic pieces of equipment that allow Dr. Pointer to closely look at your teeth for diagnostic purposes. Utilizing these cameras also serve as an excellent educational tool that helps patient better understand their personal oral health. High resolution Intraoral camera images are transmitted to monitors in each treatment operatory so that Dr. Pointer may discuss any issues you may have during your appointment.
X-rays are an essential part of dentistry, allowing our team to discover problematic conditions and damage that may be well-hidden under the smile’s surface. Unfortunately, the traditional film method of capturing these images left much to be desired. Today, Dr. Pointer has invested in digital radiography and its countless valuable advantages. For instance, instead of having to wait on tedious darkroom development, digital X-rays are available on our computer system for viewing within seconds of capture. They also expose our patients to much less radiation – up to 90% less, in fact – than the older system, which makes them safer as well.
While digital X-rays do an incredible job at giving our team a more comprehensive view of your oral health needs, their scope can be somewhat limited at times. That’s why Dr. Pointer regularly utilizes his revolutionary cone beam scanner in order to capture panoramic, three-dimensional renderings of his patients’ smiles and related facial structures. The results of these scans are so in-depth that we can even map out of the locations of sinuses and facial nerves with excellent accuracy, maximizing the success of your treatment in the process.
Dr. Pointer is proud to be one of the only dentists in the Fort Worth area who offers treatment with the state-of-the-art Solea® hard tissue laser. This technology greatly improves upon the traditional drill, using focused energy to comfortably and accurately cut through the tooth in order to treat decay and injury. This care is so precise that it allows us to preserve more of your tooth’s remaining healthy structure than ever before, and the entire procedure will be faster, more comfortable, and easier to recover from.
Soft tissue lasers are another transformative part of modern dentistry, allowing Dr. Pointer to treat the soft oral tissue for aesthetic purposes, restorative purposes, or to eradicate the presence of periodontal disease. This focused wavelength will treat and/or remove areas of unwanted tissue, sterilizing the area instantly. Any post-operative symptoms, like bleeding or swelling, will be greatly minimized, and patients typically feel so at ease throughout the procedure that local anesthetic isn’t even necessary.
Cavities are tricky things that can gradually develop in unseen areas throughout your smile. Here at Aesthetic Dental of Fort Worth, we strive to treat decay as early as possible so as to preserve your natural tooth’s strength and beauty. That’s why we use an advanced cavity detection system to map out your smile on a regular basis and pinpoint areas that need treatment. This technology is so precise that it can even discover cavities that aren’t actually visible to the naked eye yet.
