Advanced Dental Technology For Liberty
Dr. Byars has equipped his office with powerful technology that aids in diagnostics and keeps you safe, such as digital imagery and low-radiation X-rays. Our mastery of these incredible tools translates to a faster, more comfortable office visit for you.
Patients appreciate the comfort and convenience of a touch-free dental exam with our innovative DIAGNOdent laser. Dr. Byars simply scans the teeth with DIAGNOdent, and the unit detects cavities in the earliest stages, when they can be treated conservatively. By finding decay early, we help patients spend less money and less time in the dental chair.
Dentrix Practice Management Software
Dentrix software keeps our office running smoothly and our patient records organized. This secure and user-friendly software suite lets us maintain detailed records, including digital imagery and smile previews, without papers, folders, and bulky files. We can focus more attention on caring for you and less time searching for files! Computer monitors in each operatory allow us to share digital images with you, so you can take an active role in your oral healthcare.
X-ray images enable us to locate tooth decay early, which decreases the potential for large cavities, and we can also see hairline cracks and areas between teeth for an accurate, comprehensive diagnosis. Traditional X-rays expose patients to harmful radiation and require harsh chemicals to develop, but digital X-rays emit a fraction of the radiation and produce sharp results, instantly available on a chairside computer monitor.
Ever wonder what we see inside your mouth with those tiny hand-held mirrors? With intraoral cameras, you can see for yourself, live and in full-color. Digital cameras embedded at the tip of a plastic wand relay images from inside your mouth to a chairside computer monitor. This tool lets us illustrate oral conditions and diagnoses with visual aids, so you can see and understand the condition of your mouth and make wise choices about care.
CT/Cone Beam Scanner
For advanced treatment planning on procedures like dental implants or Invisalign, we make use of panoramic x-ray images using our CT/ Cone Beam scanner. Unlike traditional x-rays that capture images of underlying dental structures in specific parts of the smile, these images give us a complete picture of how the teeth and facial bones fit together. Thus, the panoramic images produced by the CT/Cone Beam scanner are essential elements in treatment planning. We may also use periodic CT/Cone Beam images as a preventive measure to ensure smiles are healthy and teeth fit together well.
Millions of people in the US report experiencing dental anxiety, and just as many people claim a fear of needles. When we have to put the two together, it’s no wonder patients avoid visiting the dentist. At Byars Dental, we use the Wand™ local anesthesia administration device. The Wand™ looks similar to a pen or intraoral camera, and patients never see a needle. The gentle injection causes minimal discomfort, and best of all, it offers precise numbing of only the necessary parts of the mouth.
