Dental Technology

Your enjoyable dental care experience depends on your comfort and safety.  Houston dentist Chase Baker DDS and his team utilize the latest technological advances in dental equipment and techniques to ensure your satisfaction with your visit and your continued excellent health.

CEREC™

CEREC™ is a technological system that allows for the fabrication of all-ceramic tooth restorations in a single visit. Many restorations require several visits to the dentist, but with CEREC’s™ system, a natural-looking restoration that has many of the properties of natural teeth can be custom created for you in less time, assuring you of a more comfortable dental experience. A clean, digital impression of your teeth allows Dr. Baker and his team to create a customized, porcelain restoration on site, while you wait. Instead of being fitted for a temporary crown and returning for a second appointment, Dr. Baker can place your complete, natural-looking, beautiful restoration on the same day.

Digital X-rays

Digital radiographs are a technological advancement that results in less exposure to radiation for our patients and an almost instantaneous picture for Dr. Baker.  You’ll appreciate a more comfortable visit as well as quicker treatment. 

Sleep Apnea/Snoring

If you or a loved one snores, you are likely aware that snoring often accompanies fitful sleep. Severe snoring may also be a sign of a more serious problem like sleep apnea. Sleep apnea occurs when an individual stops breathing for an extended period of time during sleep. Snoring happens when the soft palate relaxes to the point of cutting off the airway. Snore appliances are designed to comfortably hold the airway open during sleep. There are a wide variety of snore appliances available to you. Let Houston dentist Chase Baker DDS select the right one that fits your needs.

Millions of people suffer from sleep apnea. In a patient with sleep apnea, the position of the structures of the mouth obstruct air flow during sleep, causing the patient to snore, and at times, to stop breathing for up to a minute or more at a time. The quality of sleep for both the patient and their partner suffers tremendously, and if left untreated, sleep apnea can be very dangerous.

Dr. Baker can help patients with sleep apnea overcome their condition. After a sleep study is completed, treatment may include the use of a customized mouthpiece, which comfortably repositions the structures of the mouth, allowing for clear breathing and uninterrupted sleep. If you suffer from snoring, ask a team member about sleep apnea treatment today!

Intraoral Camera

An intraoral camera lets you see inside your mouth during both treatment planning and dental procedures.  Our intraoral camera displays your teeth on a monitor or iPad, allowing Houston dentist Chase Baker DDS to walk you through your proposed treatment.  The use of this camera allows us to work with you as a team to meet your dental goals.
