Advanced Technology at Amarillo Dental Associates

Amarillo Dental Associates boasts extraordinary dental technologies at our state-of-the-art practice in Amarillo, TX.

Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT)
CBCT scanning provides greater detail, and higher quality images of the teeth, bones, and tissues, than traditional imaging.

Intraoral Scanners
Intraoral scanners create 3D impressions of the teeth eliminating the need for uncomfortable, putty impressions

Intraoral Cameras
Intraoral cameras provide real-time images of the teeth and the mouth. At Amarillo Dental Associates, Dr. Street and Dr. Hyde use these images projected on chairside screens to educate patients about the health of their teeth and gums.

Dental Lasers
Dental lasers offer benefits such as faster recoveries, less discomfort, and more effective and efficient treatment of gum disease.

Digital X-Rays
Digital X-rays expose patients to far less radiation than traditional film X-rays. They are also better for the environment as they do not create waste.

Guided Dental Implant Placement
Advanced software helps our dentists to design and precisely place dental implants.

Noninvasive Oral Cancer Screenings
Noninvasive, painless lights shined inside the mouth are used during oral cancer screenings to illuminate changes in tissue.

Electronic Apex locator
Electronic apex locators identify the tip of the tooth root (apex) during root canal treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions About Technology in Dentistry

Are digital X-rays safe?
Yes. Digital X-rays are safer than traditional X-rays as they reduce radiation exposure by up to 85%.
Why would I need a CBCT scan?
CBCT scans are valuable diagnostic tools that provide a 360-degree view of the teeth and surrounding structures. This technology allows doctors to identify and diagnose anatomical problems, see tissues and structures that are difficult to reach, view high-resolution images of your bone structure and plan precision implant placements.
Does a CBCT scan hurt?
No, the device may look a bit futuristic, but getting your scan is not invasive or painful.
How does an intraoral camera work?
An intraoral camera looks like a small wand that is outfitted with a small camera that is waved over the teeth and gums. The images are then projected onto a computer screen and chairside screens.
Do I have to pay more for digital dental care?
No. In fact, digital dentistry has lowered many costs for patients.
What are 3D digital impressions used for?
3D digital impressions replace older putty impressions that must be sent to the lab to create dental restorations and prostheses such as crowns, bridges, and veneers. Because the impressions are sent electronically, dental restorations and prostheses arrive from the lab faster.
Are soft tissue lasers painful?
Any area of the mouth being treated with a laser will be completely numb so the treatment with lasers is not painful.
Do I have to request advanced technology during my appointment?
No. We are a modern dental practice and use advanced technology in treating all patients.
