Dental technology has developed by leaps and bounds in recent years. It has become easier and quicker to diagnose and address oral problems. The state-of-the-art technology in dentistry has made solutions for oral health more promising than before. At Table Mountain Dental in Arvada, we use the latest technology to provide our patients with the best possible treatments and care.
What Are the Benefits of Dental Technology?
Dental technology has made the work of dentists much more efficient as they can treat oral health concerns in half the time that they were able to before. As for patients, they can have more treatment options and have their procedures done on time. Additionally, technology has reduced the pain and discomfort of dental procedures to a great extent.Here are a few advances in dental technology that are used regularly:
An intraoral camera is a vital diagnostic tool that resembles a wand. The tiny camera at the tip of the device takes numerous detailed and accurate images of your mouth. These images are then used to create a digital impression of your teeth and gums. The closer look obtained helps in the prevention of any potential problems that may flare up.
Digital X-rays make use of advanced sensors and reduce your exposure to radiation by about roughly ninety percent compared to traditional X-rays. They provide more precise and in-depth images. As soon as the digital images are captured, they appear on a computer screen and enable the dentists to spot everything from decay between teeth, tumors, abscesses, to incorrect root positioning, and more.
Dental 3D Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CT) is a cutting-edge X-ray technology that evaluates the mouth more broadly and produces detailed images of the bone around the teeth. A single scan helps generate three-dimensional (3D) images of oral structures, soft tissues, nerve paths, and bone in the craniofacial region. Pictures captured with cone beam CT allow for more accurate treatment planning.
Digital impressions are currently transforming the way dentists create dental restorations for patients. It is a virtual scan that generates a map of your teeth. With the help of lasers and optical scanning devices, dentists can construct a virtual, computer-generated model of the complex and soft tissues in the mouth. After an impression is taken, it can be immediately sent to a lab where crowns, bridges, dentures, and other restoration can be quickly and accurately made.
