Advanced Dental Technology At Bayside Dental Rowlett & Mesquite
Dentist in Mesquite, TX
We use technology to improve the efficiency of our office and make your dental visits as effective and comfortable as possible. In addition to digital x-rays, photos, and impressions, we use our CBCT machine for a complete picture of what’s happening inside your mouth. The 3-D view provided by the CBCT is more efficient, precise, and in-depth than traditional 2-D images. 3D images can catch problems that 2D scans may miss.
