With new improvements in dental technology being made each day, caring for your teeth and gums is easier, less painful, and more convenient than ever before. We have prepared a list of five modern dental advancements that we’re thankful to have. Read on to learn about these fantastic solutions—and share the things you’re grateful for in the comments below!
1. Natural-Colored Fillings, Veneers, and Implants
Advances in ceramics and dental materials have significantly improved the look of fillings, veneers, and implants. Each of these dental restorations can be handled with tooth-colored materials that are matched to the natural color of your teeth. Fillings, veneers, and implants can also be contoured and textured so that they look even more realistic.
2. Dental Lasers and Cameras
Though dentists used to rely solely on what they could see from looking into a patient’s mouth, technological advancements give today’s dentists more information to work with. By using cameras and special dental lasers, dentists can diagnose problems more efficiently and provide better treatment.
3. Digital X-Rays
Many dentists use digital x-rays to diagnose patient problems. Digital x-rays reduce the amount of radiation patients are exposed to and are better for the environment. They make the processes of storing, transferring, and producing dental x-rays safer for everyone involved. We only use digital x-ray at Dr. Cirka’s office!
Invisalign treatment is a great solution for anyone who suffers from crooked or poorly-aligned teeth. The aligners are virtually invisible and easier to care for than traditional metal braces. For many patients, Invisalign is a simple, painless, and low-maintenance treatment option. Not to mention, Dr. Cirka is one of the best InvisAlign providers in the city!
5. Better Knowledge
With advances in dental technology and general scientific knowledge, dentists today know much more about oral healthcare than their predecessors did. Modern dentists are also able to better understand the connections between oral health and a patient’s overall health. By understanding this important relationship, dentists can help their patients improve their dental health and reduce their chances of serious health problems in the future.
