Dr. Brawner and the staff at Arbor Oaks Dental are pleased to provide patients from throughout the Austin, TX, area with the highest quality dental services possible. In order to do that, it’s important that we use the very latest methods available to us thanks to cutting-edge dental technology. Here are some of the latest advancements in dental technology that we are pleased to employ with our patients:
Cone Beam 3D Imaging with 3D TX Planning Software
Cone beam 3D imaging allows Dr. Brawner to provide the most accurate diagnoses possible for his patients. 3D technology takes dental imaging to the next level by providing a clear view of facial nerves and bone structure. The tools we use — Tx STUDIO, now fully integrated into i-CAT® Next Generation™ and i-CAT® Precise™ systems – are particularly helpful to Dr. Brawner not only in diagnosis, but also in developing treatment plans appropriate for each patient.
One remarkable advancement in dental technology that will be immediately apparent to our patients is CEREC®. This cutting-edge technology allows Dr. Brawner and his staff to create crowns, bridges and veneers right here in our Austin, TX, office in a matter of minutes. For our patients, this means getting permanent crowns and bridges in a single visit!
Recent advancements in dental technology have also provided us with the intraoral camera, which gives Dr. Brawner the ability to view a patient’s entire mouth on a monitor. This allows him to more easily view problem areas and identify potential issues.
Digital Bite Analysis
Another valuable tool provided to us thanks to dental technology advancement is digital bite analysis. This is particularly helpful to Dr. Brawner in diagnosing a poorly aligned bite that can eventually lead to other problems, such as TMJ, teeth grinding, jaw clenching, headaches, etc.
Dr. Brawner also employs the latest pharyngometry tools available for helping patients to improve the quality of their sleep by increasing the efficacy of the oral airway.
