Advancements in technology have revolutionized dentistry from improved diagnostics to increased comfort for patients. By keeping up to date with current technology and techniques, we can provide the highest quality dental care.

Benefits of Technology in Dentistry

The use of technology in dentistry offers many benefits:

Comfort. Technology can make dental care more comfortable for patients, which is especially important in children’s dentistry.

Faster recovery. Dental technology can make procedures less invasive, which allows children to recover more quickly and resume regular activities.

Early detection. Digital radiographs and other diagnostic technology allows dentists to detect dental and oral health concerns earlier, which results in better outcomes for patients.

Safer procedures. Technology makes dentistry safer for children, reducing the risk of exposure to radiation and other potential health risks.

Efficiency. The use of technology can make many aspects of dental care more efficient, reducing the amount of time children spend in the dental chair.

Frequently Asked Questions About Technology in Dentistry

Are digital radiographs safe for children?
Digital radiographs are the safest form of X-Rays children can have in dentistry. They use only a fraction of the amount of radiation that is required for traditional film X-Rays. Even with the reduction in radiation they create clearer images for improved diagnostics.
How often do children need dental X-Rays?
The frequency of dental X-Rays will be determined after assessing your child at their first visit. Typically, children need dental X-Rays once or twice a year with their scheduled exam and cleaning. This allows us to detect dental and oral health problems and monitor potential concerns.
What is the purpose of dental X-Rays?
Dental X-Rays can detect cavities and soft tissue abnormalities in the early stages so that they can be more easily treated. It also allows us to monitor the development of the permanent teeth that have not yet erupted and the growth of the jaw.
What is Silver Diamine Fluoride?
Silver Diamine Fluoride (SDF) is a special form of fluoride that is used to treat cavities as an alternative to traditional fillings. It can be applied to the teeth to reverse decay without anesthesia for minor cavities.
What is the SMART Technique?
The SMART technique stands for Silver Modified Atraumatic Restorative Technique. Silver diamine fluoride is applied first, and then sealed with a special coat of dental restorative material that is tooth colored. This technique stops the decay and protects the tooth without the use of anesthesia.
How do you keep my personal information secure?
Our electronic medical records are kept completely confidential on secure servers that are encrypted and password protected. Your personal information is safer in digital form than it is in paper form locked in a filing cabinet.
How does technology make dental care less invasive?
Technology makes dental care less invasive through streamlined procedures and gentler instruments and techniques. Minimally invasive procedures are more comfortable for the patient, require less anesthesia, and recovery time is reduced significantly.
How is technology used in cosmetic dentistry?
The purpose of cosmetic dentistry is to improve the smile and make it look more natural. Computer aided design and dental technology create new and improved smiles through prosthetics and other cosmetic procedures.
