When was the last time you visited a dentist? Regardless, you’ll notice that the experience is more pleasant, more advanced and faster for dental treatments and procedures such as teeth whitening.
Here are ways dental technology can benefit you.
Better Accuracy and Improved Results
Traditional dentistry procedures understandably have lots of room for error. From simple things such as movement to complicated ones like making a teeth impression, a mistake can mean a repeat do-over.
Technology, particularly dental equipment and computers make procedures more accurate, which could mean improved results from the start. Digitization works both ways- the patient gets a more pleasant experience while dentists get to provide better service.
Spend Less Money
Fewer errors will mean lesser visits required, which means less out-of-pocket expenses. Dental clinics who invest in modern equipment are in it for the long run, and advancements serve to attract customers who are averse to pain.
Instead of x-rays you can get scanned with a 3D cone beam machine, which produces a 3D image of your teeth while getting less exposed to radiation at the same time. Or, how about Solea Laser, which allows dentists to operate on both hard and soft tissue without requiring sutures or anesthesia.
Technology affects all aspects of the dental industry, including service, procedures and convenience. For instance, you won’t have to wait a long time in a clinic- just book an appointment online and arrive at the specified time.
Same day crowns give patients dental crowns without having to be fitted for temporary ones as they wait for the final restoration. You can go home with a gorgeous crown and won’t have to worry about temporary filings getting dislodged as you eat or brush your teeth.
The stigma associated with teeth will be reduced as you’ll be spending less time in the office and more time doing the things you want.
