Dr. Tiffee and his trained staff of dental professionals are dedicated to bringing our Uvalde, TX, area patients the very latest in dental technology. We know that using the most up-to-date methods possible is the best way to provide the highest quality dental care for our patients. What follows are just two examples of how we utilize technology to benefit our patients.
Thanks to our intraoral camera, Dr. Tiffee is able to view high-definition images of the inside of a patient’s mouth. The tiny camera is mounted on a tool that fits easily inside the mouth and transmits clear images that Dr. Tiffee views on a computer monitor. This incredible camera enables Dr. Tiffee to see every surface of the patient’s teeth and gums much more clearly than ever before possible.
Countless dental patients suffer from problems caused by an uneven bite. One of the most common of these is teeth grinding at night (also referred to as bruxism). Teeth grinding is much more than simply an annoying habit. In fact, if left untreated, bruxism can lead to severely worn teeth. When teeth are worn down to this extent, other more extensive dental work is often needed – such as crowns, implants or even dentures. An uneven bite in itself can also lead to worn teeth. To diagnose this condition and help patients with severely worn teeth, Dr. Tiffee utilizes computerized bite analysis, which includes an occlusal recording system that tracks the position of your teeth when you bring them together and the force exerted on your teeth when you bite down. The process is simple – the patient simply bites down on a sensor, after which a graphical 3D image of the patient’s bite is displayed on a computer monitor. Thanks to this computerized bite analysis, Dr. Tiffee is able to accurately diagnose bite issues and recommend treatments to resolve the issue.
