What Is Dental Technology?
Our practice is dedicated to optimizing the health and appearance of our patients' smiles through state-of-the-art care and services. We have invested in advanced dental technologies that are aimed at enhancing the quality of treatment we deliver while catering to patient comfort. By using innovative technologies, our team of dentists can often diagnose tooth decay, periodontal disease, and other oral conditions earlier, which may provide more conservative treatment options for meeting your dental needs. At ACE Dental of Harker Heights, we incorporate dental technology into a wide range of diagnostic and treatment processes, from preventive care visits to advanced surgical procedures.

What Types of Dental Technology are Used?
To help patients of all ages enjoy optimal oral health, our team uses the following dental technologies during diagnostic and treatment processes:
- Intraoral Cameras: We use this pen-like camera to take color pictures of hard-to-see portions of your mouth, which can help you visualize and better understand issues that may be affecting your oral health.
- Digital X-rays: Taken with a special sensor, digital x-rays let us examine the internal areas of your teeth and jawbone and offer a safe alternative to traditional films.
- Cone Beam CT Scans: Our team uses this advanced technology to take 3D images of your teeth, jaw, nerves, and other structures to enhance our diagnostic capabilities and treatment precision.
- iTero Digital Impressions: With this intraoral scanning system, we can quickly capture impressions of your mouth without having to use messy impression materials or uncomfortable mouth trays.
How Can Dental Technology Benefit My Oral Health?
Our well-trained team uses dental technology during the course of care to help patients make educated choices about their oral health needs. Digital x-rays are taken on a preventive basis to screen for hidden conditions and when needed to assess specific dental issues. We use 3D cone beam imaging to gain further insight into a patient's oral health and to plan for procedures, such as dental implant surgery and wisdom teeth extractions. Intraoral cameras help patients develop a greater understanding of their treatment needs and oral health while iTero digital impressions increase our precision and improve patient comfort when creating custom dental bridges, crowns, Invisalign aligners, and other types of appliances.
What Can I Expect With Advanced Dental TEchnology?
The ACE Dental of Harker Heights team remains up to date on advanced dental technologies and is well-versed in performing these services. We implement advanced processes so that we can safely detect oral conditions as early as possible and more accurately meet our patients' oral health needs and goals. Dental technology can also provide for a more minimally invasive approach to care and help create positive dental visits. Prior to taking digital x-rays, impressions, or other images, our team will let you know what to expect and answer any questions you may have. Overall, advanced technology can enhance treatment efficiency and speed, and might even minimize your time spent receiving dental care.
Will INsurance Cover My Dental Care?
Advanced dental technology, when used during the course of dental care, may be covered by dental insurance. A member of our business staff will contact your provider ahead of time and inform you of any uncovered portion. For those who do not carry insurance, or who have out-of-pocket costs, ACE Dental of Harker Heights accepts a number of flexible payment methods, including medical financing.
