Primescan Intra-Oral Scanner

We use the advanced Primescan Intra-Oral Scanner, a revolutionary dental tool that significantly enhances the quality of our dental procedures.

What does this mean for you?

Primescan allows us to capture extremely detailed, 3D digital images of your teeth and oral structures with extraordinary precision. Not only does this lead to exceptional accuracy when planning treatments or restorations, but it also makes your dental visit more comfortable and efficient. Forget the discomfort and wait time associated with traditional (gooey / bulky / messy) dental impressions. With Primescan, we can visualize your oral landscape digitally in real time, allowing us to design and explain your personalized treatment plan in a highly effective manner.

This state-of-the-art technology is part of our commitment to providing you with the highest standard of dental care.

Soft Tissue Laser

Keystone Dentistry uses a laser soft system to treat gum disease and other soft tissue problems. With the use of our soft tissue laser system, we can painlessly treat soft tissue (gum-related) issues such as periodontitis as well as perform more advanced procedures such as gum grafts. Give our Belton dental office a call at 816-331-4200 and learn how the use of a soft tissue laser can benefit you during your next visit.

In-office Crown Production (CEREC)

We use a highly-sensitive precision wand to digitally scan the section of your mouth where a dental restoration will be placed. As the wand scans the area, it builds a virtual model of your mouth on a screen right in front of your eyes. You and your doctor can fine-tune the area until the virtual model represents your mouth exactly.

Once the digital model of the dental restoration area have been finished, Keystone Dentistry will digitally design a restoration right there on the screen. It will be designed to be fully functional and fit exactly in the area where it needs to be place.

From there, this digital restoration will be sent to a milling machine where a color-matched block of porcelain will be precisely milled into the final restoration. This restoration is NOT a temporary, but rather the same restoration we expect to receive from a dental lab.

The final restoration is test-fitted to the area and any final adjustments are made before securely bonding the restoration to the tooth. You will walk out of our office wearing the final restoration in a single dental visit.

Single appointment dentistry is not too good to be true! Call us at 816-331-4200 or request an appointment to see what CEREC can do for your specific situation.

3D (Cone Beam) X-rays

CBCT stands for "cone beam computed tomography". This is a particular x-ray machine that is used in situations where standard x-rays are not sufficient. The CBCT uses advanced technology which allows us to view 3D images of a patient's dental structure, soft tissues, bone and nerve pathways within the face and mouth. These special x-rays allow for precise treatments to be put in to effect due to its high quality images and the details within. When the CBCT x-rays are called for, we ask that patients wear comfy and loose fitting clothing and will have to remove any type of metal that can interfere with the scan itself. This includes but is not limited to; jewelry, hairpins, underwire bras and glasses.

Some of the most common procedures in which the CBCT is used are:

  • Impacted teeth
  • Locating oral pain
  • Evaluating jaws, nerves, nasal cavity, and sinuses
  • Reconstructive surgery
  • Implant placement
  • Diagnosing TMJ
