Jefferson Dental & Orthodontics is proud to be at the forefront of technology-driven oral healthcare. We’ve invested in the best technology in the industry, including interactive 3D scanners, FDA-cleared artificial intelligence driven technology, and more, with one goal in mind: to provide our patients with the best, most accurate, most comfortable care available.
The development of dental technology has been fueled by the need to find new ways to improve patient care, reduce discomfort, provide better outcomes and deliver a positive experience to all patients. Some of these changes include:
Improved dental technology and equipment means more comfort, more accurate results and more efficiency by tailor-making decisions based on data and other sources, specifically for you.
By using the latest digital dental scanning technology, our dentists are able to identify any potential issues before they become much bigger, costly problems to fix. Preventative dentistry is key to keeping your smile healthy.
Dental scanning technology today is far more advanced than what it used to be. It is much more detailed, accurate and personalized, offering our dentists more information to prescribe a more accurate, effective treatment plan. Our cutting-edge iTero®️ Element™️ Intraoral 3D Dental Scanner shows our dentists (and you!) a comprehensive, 3D image of your mouth.

AI dental technology, or artificial intelligence, helps our dentists and hygienists by catching issues present on x-rays that are clearly visible to the human eye. This rules out human error, ensuring that we are able to treat problem areas early and avoid more serious or costly treatment later on.

Our laser hygiene treatment is a painless, safe, and effective way to achieve optimal oral health. The laser kills harmful bacteria, reduces sensitivity and bleeding, reduces inflammation, and promotes faster healing of your gums. Plus, it treats canker sores, cold sores, and blisters, reducing the healing time to just 3-5 days. By reducing the amount of bacteria in your mouth, you can enjoy healthier gums, which in turn contribute to an overall healthier body.
iTero 3D scanners use a handheld wand that captures 6,000 images to create a 3D model of your teeth and gums. iTero Scanners are used to look for cavities, identify crowded teeth or misalignments, and find plaque build-up in tough-to-reach spaces. iTero scanners show a simulation of what your smile could look like after orthodontic treatment with braces or Invisalign.
Overjet uses AI technology to help increase precision and improve patient care by giving patients a better understanding on what their issues are and why they need dental treatment. Overjet AI is the first FDA-cleared technology to detect cavities and measure bone loss linked to gum disease. It uses artificial intelligence to analyze your x-rays, pointing out areas with tooth decay or bone loss. Seeing these problem areas for yourself allows you to make a more informed decision about your oral health.
We’ve made a significant investment in this technology because we know it’s what you, our patient, deserves. But the best part is–it costs you nothing! Each visit to Jefferson Dental & Orthodontics includes a free 3D scan using the iTero scanner, and Overjet AI will automatically be part of your treatment diagnosis.
We use dental technology to be able to provide our patients with the best possible care. We aim to make every patient feel relaxed and empowered by using technology that enhances the skills of our expert dentists. This technology allows us to have an open, trusting and transparent relationship with each patient, tailoring their treatment to them.
Dental technology is 100% safe to use, and even more effective than traditional methods. As the newer technology is much more sophisticated, it’s likely to catch things older technology might have missed.
We’re proud to provide comprehensive, affordable dental care to communities throughout Texas and Oklahoma. From preventative care to complete smile makeovers, we’re here to help with whatever you need.
