What Are the Benefits of Dental Technology?

- Dental Technology helps save money. Due to the enhanced accuracy and precise treatments, you won’t have to make frequent dental visits.
What Are the Latest Technologies In Dentistry?
An intraoral camera is an advanced dental innovation used in evaluating and diagnosing oral health problems. It enables us to have a detailed analysis of the different structures inside your mouth. An intraoral camera has a built-in light source that allows the dentist and the patient to see the external structures of the gums, teeth, and buccal cavity. This camera enables us to take videos and images of the teeth, which help assess and diagnose dental cavities, plaque formation, gum diseases, chipped or cracked teeth, broken dental fillings, and other oral cavity conditions.
Digital X-rays help us have a detailed view of the teeth and surrounding tissue diseases that are not visible in a simple oral examination. As a result, we can treat dental problems early on, which can help save you money, unnecessary discomfort, and maybe even your life. In addition, you need not have any concerns because dental X-ray equipment exposes you to far lower levels of radiation than traditional X-rays.
Soft Tissue Laser
Lasers for soft tissue treatments are accessible at varying power levels and wavelengths and can be used for procedures that would otherwise have to be performed using a scalpel or electrosurgery. Laser dentistry generates very minimal heat and is a mild form of surgery. When used correctly, dental lasers enable soft tissue to be precisely, effectively, and safely removed.
This high-tech technology allows the technicians to take exact 3D digital images of your mouth. These scans will help remove the need for impressions and fast-track the process of starting your Invisalign treatment. The ITero Digital Scanner is all about patient comfort, does not expose them to any radiation, and is safe. It provides a digital impression that is much more precise than a regular dental impression, and their results are fast and accurate.
