Mouthwatch® Intraoral Camera
Intraoral cameras can provide a valuable, up-close-and-personal look inside patients’ smiles, benefitting both their understanding and our team’s overall insight! The images are immediately transferred to a monitor in the operatory for easy viewing, and Dr. Hutto will refer to them again and again when discussing problematic findings, potential treatment plans, and much more. We want you to feel like a fully informed partner in your oral healthcare journey!
Digital Dental X-Rays
Digital X-rays are a vital part of diagnosing common dental problems – after all, there is a lot of information about your smile that can’t be gleaned from just a surface view. Unlike traditional film X-rays, this modern technology can capture high-resolution images and develop them for viewing in seconds without the need of a darkroom. Any radiation that patients are exposed to throughout the process is also dramatically reduced by up to 80% overall.
Prexion CT/Cone Bean Scanner
When designing advanced treatment like root canal therapy or surgical dental implant placement, it’s crucial to have a confident plan in place and leave no room for “surprises.” That’s why Dr. Hutto uses a revolutionary CT/Cone Beam scanner for comprehensive diagnostic power. This technology will create a three-dimensional model of the patient’s teeth, jaw, skull, and other bodily details in an exact fashion, even including small details like the locations of certain facial nerves.
3 Shape Trios Digital Impression System
Traditionally, dental impressions were captured with physical putty, which was uncomfortable for the patient and often inconclusive for the dentist. At Aesthetic Family Dentistry, we’ve invested in a revolutionary method for creating custom-made restorations: the 3Shape Trios digital impression system. Now, this in-the-mouth scanner can create a comprehensively accurate, three-dimensional image of your teeth faster than ever and without any unpleasant physical contact.
Technology 4 Medicine Soft Tissue Laser
Lasers are certainly the future of dentistry, and we’re proud to feature an outstanding version of this state-of-the-art technology here in our Baytown practice. Our soft tissue laser makes treatments involving the gum line more conservative and comfortable than ever before. Its precise beam provides instant sterilization as well, and many patients don’t even require local anesthetic throughout their procedure. Common post-operative symptoms like oral bleeding and swelling are kept to an absolute minimum as well.
Our team understands that dental phobia and fear are serious problems that can prevent patients from receiving much-needed oral healthcare. That’s why we work so hard to create an experience that’s genuinely anxiety-free! Dr. Hutto offers varying levels of sedation dentistry so that you can select the one that’s right for your personal circumstances and level of fear. Our goal is to help your next procedure go by as smoothly as possible – no stress required.
Sleep Apnea Treatment
Untreated sleep apnea can steal much more than a good night’s rest from you – it can harm your concentration, damage your personal relationships, and even threaten your general health. What many patients don’t know is that a highly trained dentist like Dr. Hutto can often help! If you’ve been diagnosed with mild to moderate Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA), we’d love to help you explore the possibility of using a custom-made SomnoMed oral appliance to relieve symptoms.
Your temporomandibular joint (also known as the TMJ) connects the lower jaw to the skull, helping you chew food, speak clearly with friends, and even yawn when you’re tired. Unfortunately, this area of the body is highly susceptible to strain and general dysfunction over time for a number of reasons, from habitual bruxism (teeth grinding) to a sudden facial injury. If you’re experiencing chronic jaw pain and tenderness, we strongly recommend that you visit Aesthetic Family Dentistry for a dedicated consultation with Dr. Hutto. We offer TMJ therapy that can help you finally enjoy a pain-free smile once more, as well as neuromuscular dentistry to help reduce and eliminate chronic headaches.
No one knows better than our team how the littlest touches can truly make a world of difference in a patient’s care experience. That’s why Aesthetic Family Dentistry is stocked with enjoyable, relaxing amenities that can be taken advantage of at every stage of the appointment process. For instance, you can listen to your favorite songs through headphones during treatment or sit back with a great movie on the operatory screen. A beverage bar is also available if you need some refreshment or a pick-me-up when you’re arriving and leaving.
