What is dental technology?

Dental technology includes different cutting-edge tools, equipment, techniques and materials utilized at our office to provide you high-quality, advanced dental care. Our dentist and team continually take training courses to stay up to date on the latest in dental technology so they can enhance your oral health in the most painless and easiest way possible.

A Few Types of Dental Technology:

Digital X-rays: Traditional X-rays can be uncomfortable, time consuming to process and overall, a hassle for the patient and the dentist. Digital X-rays are much quicker and more comfortable for patients. Digital X-rays can also be viewed instantly on a computer screen, giving our dentist a clear picture of the patient’s teeth to better diagnose oral heath conditions.

Intraoral cameras: These small cameras allow our dentist to get a detailed, close-up view of the inside of the patient’s mouth to diagnose problems such as periodontal disease and tooth decay. These images can be saved and sent to different specialists if needed.

Laser dentistry:
Lasers are often utilized for dental treatments such as teeth whitening, removing lesions, performing oral tissue biopsies and providing soft-tissue procedures. This technology makes treatments more accurate and gives you a faster recovery time.

What are the benefits of dental technology?

Today’s dental technology allows dental professionals to perform procedures once considered too difficult and risky or that required more complex solutions. With advances in dental technology, our dentist and team can treat many dental problems at our office, instead of referring them out to different dental specialists, which saves you time and money. Advances in technology has also made it possible to provide patients with better access to quality care using telecommunication and other digital devices. Patients are now able to view their own dental records and see what treatments are available, giving them more control over their oral health and allowing them to make informed decisions about their care.
