Advancements in dental technology can offer you modern solutions to traditional dental problems. The driving force behind technological advances is a desire to provide you with leading edge dental treatment that can be performed in a more efficient, effective, comfortable manner.
To the casual observer, it may appear that not much has changed in dentistry. Yet dental technologies have been evolving continually, helping to transform the field of dentistry. New technologies are developed with a focus on creating products and developing techniques that can be used by your dentist to help prevent, diagnose and/or treat dental conditions and diseases early and effectively.
There are many dental technologies for you at our clinic, with benefits that can provide you with more comfort and ease during treatment.
Some of the more popular technologies we use are:
Biolase is a minimally invasive dental laser with expanded and enhanced capabilities to help us to give you the best possible experience. Waterlase iPlus includes SureFire™ YSGG Delivery System, the gold standard in ergonomics and clinical precision. Plus, the powerful REPAIR periodontal and peri-implantitis protocols are available as an app from the award-winning touch-screen user interface.
The laser for every dentist, every hygienist, every day. With no foot pedal, power cord or external controls, the revolutionary Dental World takes dental lasers beyond portable. Lasers offer reduced discomfort and in some cases, a suture free option for the treatment of benign tumors, cold sores, crown lengthening, decay removal, gummy smile changes, dental fillings, tongue tie and speech impediment improvements, nerve regeneration for damaged nerves and blood vessels and scars. Lasers may also be applied in the treatment of select dental conditions such as sleep apnea, certain cases of TMD and tooth sensitivity. This is a very exciting area of development in dental technologies. Lasers use light energy as their method of operation, resulting in a shortened and almost painless healing period.
Dental implants are perhaps the leading dental technology advancement because of their fit and function as replacements of a tooth root. The implants integrate with the jaw bone and the procedure can be done in almost any adult who needs missing teeth replaced. The treatment time of this type of procedure has also been shortened as some patients can receive the crown that attaches to the implant immediately after tooth extraction as opposed to waiting six months after.
