Dental Technology

Medical technology is constantly improving, especially in the dental field. Advancements in dental imagery and diagnostic tools make it easier to identify oral issues when they first appear. This allows for quicker repairs, protecting oral health and saving money for patients. At Northampton Dental, we invest in the newest technology to give our patients access to efficient and quality dental care treatments that can save them time and money.

Dental X-Rays and Panoramic X-Rays

Panoramic radiography, also known as a panoramic X-ray, is an X-ray technology that allows us to see your entire mouth in one image. Our dental team is able to see a detailed view of your teeth and supporting bone structure, which enables us to make more precise diagnoses and assures our patients they are receiving the best treatment option.

In addition to a complete view of your teeth and supporting bone structure, the panoramic digital X-ray is a low radiation X-ray, which is a safer option for our patients because it ensures no radiation remains in your body once the X-ray exam is complete.

Intraoral Camera

Our intraoral camera technology at our Tomball area dental office allows us to show you digital images of the interior of your mouth. The device uses a small, hand-held camera that transmits digital images of your teeth onto a monitor so you can view issues that your dentist can see. This helps you have a better understanding of your oral health and why certain dental treatments are needed to care for your smile.

DryShield™

The DryShield™ Dental Isolation System is an all-in-one device that suctions out fluid, protects your tongue, shields your airway, and serves as a bite block so that our team can work much more efficiently. DryShield mouthpieces are made of flexible, soft material so you stay comfortable during the entire dental procedure.

At Northampton Dental, our goal is to provide patients with the best dental care available in the Tomball, Spring, and The Woodlands area. With the use of the latest dental technology, we can provide the best medical treatments for our patients, improving their dental experience.
