Technological advances are changing dentistry for doctors and patients alike. By enhancing dentists’ diagnostic and treatment capacities, these technologies allow dentists to provide dental care that exceeds patients’ expectations. Ron Bosher, D.D.S., F.A.G.D., is pleased to use some of the most sophisticated equipment on the market, including CADENT iTero™ digital impressions, digital x-rays, DIAGNOdent® laser cavity detection. Our state-of-the-art equipment allows him to provide beautiful treatments for patients in the Plano, Metrocrest, Frisco, McKinney, and Richardson, Texas areas. Whether you are seeking cosmetic dentistry, restorative dentistry, or another treatment, you can rest assured that you are receiving highly advanced care at our practice.
Digital Impressions with CADENT iTero™
Our Plano office provides CADENT iTero™ technology for digital impressions. It helps make receiving laboratory-crafted dental crowns and dental bridges easier and more efficient than ever before. Instead of using messy, gooey trays, CADENT iTero™ technology provides a digital, 3-D impression of a patient’s teeth and bite. The dentist then transmits these impressions via a wireless Internet connection to a CADENT laboratory, where technicians craft the restoration. Since technicians can take such precise impressions, the restorations not only look beautiful, but fit well, so patients seldom have to make return visits to have their restorations refitted.

Digital x-rays are one of the most powerful diagnostic tools in modern medicine, since they allow dentists to detect hidden problems in the teeth and gums without exposing patients to excessive radiation. Instead of using photo film and bite trays, digital x-rays use digital sensors to record images of the teeth and mouth. These images are projected immediately onto a computer screen for the dentist to view. The digital images are extremely detailed, and provide a view of the entire facial structure.
Dr. Bosher is proud to offer his patients the benefits of laser dentistry, including the removal of fever blisters and early detection of cavities using advanced laser technology.
Fever Blister / Cold Sore Treatments
Dr. Bosher has been providing laser treatment of herpetic blisters, also known as cold sores or fever blisters, for more than 20 years. He uses the highly effective Nd:YAG laser to remove these blisters from around the mouth and lips in a simple office procedure. Treatment helps the blister disappear quickly and offers immediate pain relief. Patients are often pleased that the sores never reappear in the area treated with the laser.
DIAGNOdent® Laser Cavity Detection
DIAGNOdent® technology detects cavities hidden far below the tooth’s surface. This early detection allows Dr. Bosher to treat the cavity before it progresses and causes further decay. With DIAGNOdent®, there is no poking or prodding with metal instruments; instead, the laser scans the teeth in just a few minutes and highlights decayed tissue on a computer screen. This allows Dr. Bosher to provide traditional or tooth-colored fillings to prevent further tooth decay.
