Advantages Of Digital Dental Technology
As is the way of the world today, dental technology and advancements in treatments are ever changing. At Aesthetic Smile Design, we offer our patients the latest in dental innovations, materials, and treatments. We participate in various continuing education opportunities to stay current on the latest skills and techniques. We also regularly invest in new equipment to offer the very best outcomes for our patients and to ensure that they are safe and comfortable during their treatment. We want to share some of the digital technology that we frequently use in our office and how it can offer enhanced dental care and services.
Long gone are the days of bulky, uncomfortable X-ray equipment. Digital X-rays are not only faster and more comfortable for the patient, but they also reduce radiation exposure by 90%. Digital X-rays allow our team to view the images immediately, share the images with our patients during their exam and enlarge the pictures to show areas of concern. This X-ray method can be used during examinations as well as in many other treatments.
This handheld, lightweight tool is used to take close-up pictures of specific areas in the mouth. It can be used to take high-quality images of areas on the gums, the cheeks, the teeth, and the tongue. This is particularly useful to further inspect areas that are not visible with digital X-rays. Patients are able to view the images first hand to better understand needed treatment or areas of concern.
Smile Makeover Simulation
This amazing technology offers our team the ability to show our patients a preview of the potential of your smile. We can discuss various cosmetic dental treatments we recommend and show the before and expected “after” appearance. It is a fantastic and realistic way to see what your smile could look like before committing to the time and expense of treatment.
