Through 3-D imaging and digital x-rays we can see the full scope of your teeth and jaw without having to wait for traditional x-rays. We offer 3D imaging for implant planning because we want to give you the very best in terms of diagnosis and treatment, and 3D imaging helps us do just that.
For a precise fit for crowns and bridges, we use digital impression technology. This allows us to get an accurate measurement to ensure a better fit. As an added benefit, digital impression technology eliminates the discomfort often associated with traditional tooth impressions.
If you hate getting shots at the dentist, we have the solution! Using DentalVibe, we can cause the tissues around the injection site to vibrate while we give you the anesthesia injection. The feeling of the vibration reaches your brain first and essentially blocks the feeling of the shot. With DentalVibe, there’s no reason to fear injections or the pain associated with them.
The VELscope® Oral Cancer Screening System is a breakthrough technology that allows Dr. Camacho to detect early signs of oral cancer. At our office, your health is everything! That’s why we recommend you have the screening once a year. It only takes a few minutes, but those few minutes could save your life!
OrthoPulse® is a device that is used in conjunction with braces or clear aligners. It uses light energy to stimulate the bone surrounding the roots of your teeth, speeding up the process of tooth movement. We offer this technology to those who want to see quicker results with their orthodontia.
Our soft tissue laser allows us to give you a more comfortable experience as we remove excess gum tissue from around your teeth. Dental lasers provide a much better experience for our patients, meaning you can get rid of that gummy smile once and for all.
If you’re embarrassed about your dull smile, we have the answer! KöR Whitening Deep Bleaching System can whiten even the most stained teeth. And, it has been created to avoid creating tooth sensitivity, a problem with other whitening systems.

State of the art technology to accelerate your journey to a great smile – at Cosmetic Dentistry of San Antonio

Dr. Edward Camacho | Dental Technology

I have a number of pieces of technology that I use in my office. One of the ones that I think patients find the most gratification for me using in comments about is something called a dental vibe – it is an instrument that I use to kind of lift and hold to the side. I lift and hit a button and it vibrates and I put it in the area that I am going to place the anesthetic and with vibrations I take all of the nerve endings in the area and flood them with all of this non painful information and when I give the actual injections and I am done – patients will say what was that? Did you just give me a shot? And the answer is yes – because this little piece of technology makes the getting of an injection extremely confortable so the dental vibe when I saw it was availed I thought it made a lot of sense and the number of positive comment that I had about such a simple idea but a powerful effect that it has on one of the areas that patients dread the most now that is one piece of technology I use and another one I have available here is called an iTero – it is an intra-oral scanner which means it is basically a camera that can fit into the mouth and it digitally records all of the dimension to the teeth to take a digital impressions so we use this for taking measurements for crowns, veneers and bridges. We also use this to take any impressions from orthodontic or Invisalign cases, so there is no more goopy impressions with the goop going down the back of the throat. It is certainly a more comfortable and definitely a much more accurate way of doing thing and then I also have a cone beam x-ray machine. Cone beam is basically a 3D x-ray so if a patient is in need of a dental implant, we need to be able to assess whether there is sufficient bone in the rea and so this piece of technology can capture a 3D x-ray to know exactly not only do I have enough bone but where exactly I can design and place my implant that leads to a much better final result because sometimes I have to fit an implant into a really tight space and knowing exactly how I can guide its placement. This technology assists me in being able to address that.
