At Del Rey Dental, our team always loves being able to introduce patients to the valuable benefits of modern dentistry's tools and technologies during their dental appointments! This advanced approach isn’t only better for their oral health, but it also results in better patient relaxation, more efficient care that saves valuable time, and maximized accuracy for smile-inducing improvements. All the while, Dr. Tadros stays focused on what matters most – helping you and your family feel right at home every time you visit. Contact us today in East Dallas to schedule your first visit, or if you have any questions.
Do you ever wonder what exactly the dentist is seeing as you’re sitting back in the operatory chair with your mouth open? Intraoral cameras can provide patients with the invaluable insight they need to feel fully confident about the treatment process! The process is simple – our team will maneuver a camera-tipped wand around the teeth and gums, capturing high-resolution images that are then pulled up on a nearby monitor for easy viewing. Dr. Tadros can then use these images as handy visual aids when discussing any concerning findings, possible service recommendations, and more.
Traditionally, X-rays were captured on film, had to be tediously developed in darkrooms, and required huge, bulky filing cabinets for storage. Today, this process has been dramatically improved through state-of-the-art digital radiography! Now, our East Dallas team can capture high-resolution dental X-rays of the teeth and jawbone and make them available for viewing within seconds. Any transfers of this information to separate specialists or insurance companies is an easy, stress-free process, and radiation exposure is dramatically reduced as well for added patient safety.
Nitrous Oxide Sedation
Does the thought of an upcoming dentist’s appointment fill you or your loved one with serious anxiety? Our team understands that these feelings often can’t be helped, which is why we want to do our best to make the experience pleasant and comfortable. Nitrous oxide (also known as “laughing gas”) is a helpful little aid that can calm frazzled nerves throughout the treatment process, and it’s perfectly safe for children and adults alike. The patient will breathe in the gas through a nasal mask, and within minutes, they should feel much more relaxed and content while still remaining conscious to respond to any questions from our team.
