As technology continues to advance and change the way we go about our day-to-day lives, it only makes sense that we utilize these advancements to take care of our health, including our dental health. Here are some of the cutting-edge technological tools that you should look for in an advanced dental office:
Laser Gum Therapy – Since lasers typically cause less pain and bleeding than scalpels, they are much more appealing tools for conducting oral surgery. Laser treatments allow patients to undergo surgery without needing their gums cut and stitched, thereby promoting faster healing.
Tekscan – With Tekscan technology, your dentist can get a better measurement of how your teeth meet. This program analyzes your bite and allows for simple changes to be made until the desired alignment is achieved.
Digital X-rays – As opposed to the old-school film X-rays that used to be shown to patients, digital X-rays can be enlarged and altered so that a clearer image of your teeth appears, leading to more accurate diagnoses and treatments.
Intraoral Cameras – If your dentist uses intraoral cameras, then you will be able to see exactly what your dentist sees when he or she examines your mouth. You can view magnified images of the cracks, decay, and leaks in your teeth, and will be able to better understand the situation of your oral hygiene.
Digital Charting of Your Dental History – Instead of using paper files that are bulky, tedious to sort through, and can even become lost, dentists who use digital charting enjoy easy access to all of your dental history and pharmacy records.
Digital Periocharting – Gum disease is extremely common in the U.S, which is why cutting-edge dental offices use digital periocharting. At the beginning of each visit, the dentist measures your gums to determine whether or not you are developing gum disease, which gives you the ability to stay on top of your gum health.
