The Benefits of Dental Technology During Your Dental Visits
Posted on 3/22/2021 by McDonald Office
Dental technology is a branch of dental science that helps restore the form, function, and health of your teeth, gums, and mouth with the use of advanced and computerized treatment tools and techniques.
Dental technology offers a host of benefits to the client since it can lead to more effective, comfortable, quicker, and convenient treatments. Let us take a look at dental technology that is revolutionizing the dental industry.
The Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramic or CEREC is a technology that is used to create high-grade porcelain crowns. One of the biggest inconvenienceswith getting dental crowns is that patients have to wait for weeks without a tooth while their permanent crown is being made in a dental lab.
CEREC technology uses CAD/CAM technology to digitally design a crown right there in the clinic. This way you can have a dental crown on the same day as your dental procedure.
Oral Cancer Detection Light
An oral cancer screen is an important preventive exam done during your dental checkup. It includes a visual exam that checks for abnormalities in the mouth. Thanks to oral cancer detection lights, we can now see suspicious signs in your mouth with more accuracy.
Air abrasion is a new way to remove decayed tooth structure in the cavities. The device blasts your tooth with tiny particles of silica and aluminum oxide. This is used to prepare your tooth for bonding or dental sealants. It can also be used to remove old composite fillings from a cavity.
This is a safe procedure for minor tooth decay and eliminates the need for dental drills, which is why many people prefer it.
Ultrasonic scalers are dental tools that are used to remove large pieces of calculus stuck to your teeth. These tools make vibrating shockwaves that shake the tartar loose from the enamel. They also disrupt the activities of bacterial biofilm so that it can easily be flushed away with streams of water.
These scalers are very effective during periodontal maintenance which is required to treat gum disease.
