Modern dentists can access various devices and technologies to help them diagnose, treat, and prevent oral conditions. New technology is becoming increasingly common in dental practices. At HD Smile Dental, this technology allows dentists to diagnose and treat dental problems more efficiently, reduce patient discomfort, provide better dental care, and more. From repairing damaged teeth to preventing the development of decay and gum disease, advanced devices can help a dentist deliver better care to patients than ever before.
Types of Dental Technology
An intraoral camera is an instrument that allows us to take high-resolution images of your teeth and gums without taking a traditional X-ray. Unlike a conventional X-ray, an intraoral camera does not emit radiation or take multiple images to create a complete picture. Instead, it takes a live digital view that is instantly available on a computer monitor for your viewing. An intraoral camera is also a valuable tool for patient education. We can show the images to you so you better understand what is happening in your mouth in real time and our recommended treatment to correct it.
A laser is a focused beam of light energy that can be used for several dental procedures, including teeth whitening, gum contouring, cavity detection, and more. Lasers are helpful for several procedures because they work quickly, are minimally invasive, and can be adjusted for exact treatment.
Dental X-rays have been around for decades but have changed significantly over time. Today’s digital X-rays are created using mechanical sensors that send a flat electronic image to a computer, which can be viewed on a screen. The image is typically more detailed than a traditional X-ray and can be enhanced with computer software to show more detail. Digital X-rays are also better for the environment because they do not require the use of film or chemicals to develop the film.
The Benefits of Dental Technology
Dental technology gives our dental team a clear picture of your oral health and any underlying issues, such as decay below the gum line or impacted teeth. By providing a clear image of your teeth, our dentist can promptly diagnose and address any problems while they are still in their early stages. This can save you from needing more invasive and expensive procedures in the future. Dental Technology also enables us to provide more precise treatments with pinpoint accuracy from which patients can recover faster than ever! Overall, dental technology enables better oral and dental care.
