Dr. Kurt Calender in Southlake, TX recently introduced some of the latest dental digital technology into his practice to ensure that his patients receive the best level of care during their visit. With new digital technology such as intraoral cameras and digital x-rays, Dr. Calender is able to provide patients with a more comfortable, transparent, and accurate dental experience.
“One of the goals we have at our practice is to always ensure that we’re keeping up with the latest technology to make sure our patients are receiving not only the best personal service, but also the best dental care,” said Dr. Calender. “These two new technologies we use for every patient are just a portion of the commitment we’re fulfilling to giving our patients the very best the industry can offer.”
Digital x-rays are one of the most influential advancements in dentistry that make patient visits more efficient but also ensure accuracy with dental exams and check-ups. Prior to digital x-rays, radiographs of the patient’s jaw had to be carefully taken and developed, and often could not show the minute details of the patient’s condition such as decay in its earliest stages. Digital x-rays, however, emit much less radiation, can be viewed almost immediately after taking them, and provide the dentist and patient with a much clearer and more accurate view of their current dental state.
The intraoral camera is also used for dental imaging, but provides a more up-close view of certain areas of the mouth, and also provides the patient with a way to be more involved in the process. The intraoral camera is a wand-like device that can be inserted into small areas of the mouth to take colored photographs of the teeth and gums. The camera, which is placed on the end of the wand, produces digital photographs that show up immediately on the screen for both dentist and patient to see.
Images taken with the intraoral camera can show details of the teeth more than 40 times their actual size. This assists Dr. Calender in discovering decay in its earliest stages so he can use the most minimally invasive procedures to correct it. The intraoral camera is also helpful to keep patients involved in the treatment process, but showing them a before, during, and after picture of their procedure.
“The intraoral camera is one of the favorite tools we have in our office by patients because they no longer have to just rely on what we tell them is wrong with their teeth—they can actually see it on a screen in front of them,” said Dr. Calender. “It’s also extremely helpful when working with insurance providers to accurately document oral conditions.”
In addition to being a well-known children’s dentist, Dr. Calender also has extensive experience with providing cosmetic dental services. Using a variety of different cosmetic procedures such as crowns, tooth whitening, veneers, tooth colored fillings and more, Dr. Calender has helped many of his patients achieve a smile that is not only healthy, but one that they are proud to show off as well. He is also a certified dental implants dentist in Southlake, TX and offers TMJ treatments, periodontal therapy, and more.

Dr. Calender and his team of dental professionals consider the quality of their services and the comfort of their patients their top priorities.
