Southlake Dental


We are proud to offer modern dental technology and techniques to our patients so you can enjoy the most comfortable, efficient, and effective dentistry possible. 

Feel free to read on to learn more about the technology we use in our practice.

Digital X-Rays

Modern digital dental x-rays benefit patients in a number of ways: 

  • Digital x-rays expose patients to considerably less radiation than conventional film x-rays
  • Digital x-rays require almost no time for development, reducing time spent waiting in the dental chair
  • Digital x-rays allow for incredibly precise and accurate images for timely diagnoses
  • Digital x-rays are securely stored in your digital file and can be securely sent to your insurance company or specialists, when necessary
  • Because no chemicals are needed for developing and no space is needed for film storage, digital x-rays are better for the environment

Intraoral Cameras

What if you could see exactly what your dentist sees? You'd probably find it simpler to make informed decisions about your oral health! 

Intraoral cameras allow you to do precisely that. Using a small digital camera embedded in a wand, the dentist can move it around your mouth and transmit the images instantly to a chairside monitor. This allows you to clearly see everything the dentist describes, including damage to the teeth and signs that might indicate periodontal disease. 


CBCT creates 3-dimensional images of your teeth and oral structure, allowing your dentist to see the dimensions of your jaw when planning treatments. These treatments may include dental implant placement or precise measuring for prosthetics. Other excellent uses for this technology include:

  • Sinus evaluation
  • Nerve canal evaluation
  • An infection source

CBCT reduces radiation exposure dramatically compared with older radiographs.

3-D Printing

3-D printing allows your dentist to print prosthetics, surgery guides, or orthodontic aligners right in the dental office. This can mean a quicker dental experience for you with fewer appointments. 

Your dentist takes digital measurements and sends the results to this printer, which can produce the needed restoration, prosthetic, aligner, or treatment guide.
