Healthcare advances every year as dental technologies are leveraged for happy and healthier patients. As dentistry looks to the future, huge benefits are being reaped by dental patients, making going to the dentist easier and faster as every passing decade goes by. All of these technological advances in dentistry means more comfort and more accessibility to oral health and bright new smiles!
New Technological Innovations in Dentistry
Recently in China, the first oral surgery was performed by a robot. A robot inserted 2 dental implants into a human mouth under the supervision of a team of dentist. Some research is also being done on how to get AI to take oral X-rays and past dental history and quickly diagnose a patient’s dental issues. New advancements in stem cell technology is helping other scientist grow dental pulp to help stimulate the growth of dentin on decayed teeth, and bring them back to life. There are also many new advancements being made with lasers in dental diagnosis and surgery now.
New Dental Technologies Used by Dyer Dental Care
Not only have new technological innovations made going to the dentist more efficient, but more natural looking for our patients as well. No longer is the dentist a place to be feared, but a place to feel comfortable and in control of your oral health and over-all health. Here are some of the new technologies being used here at Dyer Dental Care in El Paso, TX:
There are many ways that new digital X-rays are superior to old film ones. Not only are they overwhelmingly faster than traditional X-rays, they also emit 70% less radiation. Clearly making them the safest choice for dentists and patients. They also have 3D viewing capabilities, which makes the diagnosis & treatment process even faster and more straightforward for dental health professionals.
You might have seen Invisalign in television or web advertisements recently. Invisalign is a a clear brace used to straighten your teeth. They are virtually invisible, and allow you to take of the aligner trays to brush, floss, and eat. So you won’t have to restrict any foods like with unsightly metal braces. They are thermo-formed in a lab to help you straighten out your teeth with a series of custom aligners over a period of months.
With dental implants, the root of your teeth is replaced by a titanium screw, which provides a stable foundation for a crown, bridge, or denture. Since dental implants are made from titanium, which is a bio-compatible material, they help to stimulate bone growth around the implant. This bonds the implant to the jaw bone and is why dental implants have a 97% success rate.
