The benefits of technological advancements can be felt in nearly every aspect of our daily life. From having a little robot vacuum zoom around your house to being able to video chat with people across the world, humans have found greater comfort and convenience through an array of technology.
This applies to dentistry too! For example, Farmington Dental & Orthodontics has an intraoral camera that gives you real-time video of your mouth as we examine it. This allows you to visualize the exact tissues we are looking at. Here are some other ways that dental technology makes your appointment as a patient better.
Safer Dental X-Rays
Digital X-rays are standard in dental practices these days. Compared to traditional X-rays, digital X-rays emit up to 90% less radiation, making them much safer for patients. In addition, they remove the need for putting uncomfortably sharp X-ray film in your mouth while taking images.
The Precision & Effectiveness of Lasers
Lasers can be used to treat different dental issues like gum disease and tooth decay. From a dentist’s perspective, lasers are an ultra-precise tool that can target the exact areas needing treatment. For patients, laser dentistry makes for a more pleasant procedure with less noise and less required anesthetic. There is also faster healing and less discomfort during recovery.
