Advanced Dental Technology Overview
The American Dental Association (ADA) dates the first dental practice back to ancient Egypt when oral care was not very pleasant. Even in the past decade or two, dental treatments could be long and painful. That's why at White Lotus Dental in McKinney, TX, family and cosmetic dentist Dr. Karuna Peravali created her practice with advanced dental technology. From digital x-rays and cavity detection to improved surgical equipment, Dr. Peravali's patients at White Lotus Dental will experience the most advanced dental technology that's available so they can have better, faster, and less painful appointments.

Soft Tissue Diode Laser
Diode lasers are an innovative technology that can be utilized in several periodontal and dental procedures. Combining light and energy pulses, a diode laser is a tool for procedures on the delicate tissue of the mouth. At White Lotus Dental, we use the diode laser to complete effective and safe processes on McKinney, TX patients. The benefits of diode laser technology may shorten treatment process times and reduce the need for sutures following a gum treatment. It may also lessen any bleeding and the chance of disease after treatment.
A big improvement for oral surgery, radiosurgery makes incisions and removes small amounts of tissue using high-powered radio waves, and seals the incision after the treatment. Radiosurgery can be used to make several dental treatments faster and easier, including biopsies, dental implants, crown preparation, and frenectomy.
Digital x-rays or radiographs are administered during a dental exam to provide a more thorough picture of your teeth and gums. They make it easier for Dr. Peravali to diagnose problems that aren't visible and to understand more about your oral health by showing the interior of your teeth, gums, and jawbone. There are numerous dental and oral problems that may be diagnosed with digital x-rays, including tooth decay, cavities, abscesses, cysts, bone loss, and tooth impaction. If these problems are found in the early stages, you can be treated more efficiently with more treatment options.
The CariVu is an advanced intraoral camera that is a detection device that can be used in addition to digital x-rays or for patients who cannot get x-rays (small children, pregnant women). It uses near-infrared light instead of ionizing radiation to show caries (cavities), cracks, and other oral problems. By using this small pen-like device, Dr. Peravali can have a better, high-resolution view of your teeth and gums. An intraoral camera is also able to capture different angles of your mouth and takes a live video that will be displayed on an attached monitor. In addition, it can provide a more accurate diagnosis and help you to fully understand your dental situation. At White Lotus Dental in McKinney, TX, the CariVu intraoral camera system can also be used during treatment to give Dr. Peravali a better visual.
