Advancements in technology continually improve various facets of everyday life, including trips to the dentist. Some offices embrace dental technology to restore the look, health, and function of their patients’ mouths with ease and accuracy.
Our dentists at Lake Jeanette Orthodontics and Pediatric Dentistry use dental technology to brighten our patients’ smiles. We offer pediatric dental services for children ages 1 to 18 and orthodontic treatments for children, adolescents, and adults. Our dentists and orthodontist use various tools and techniques to take a closer look at oral cavities, make accurate diagnoses, and implement effective treatment plans.
What Is Dental Technology?
Dental technology is the digitization of all aspects of dentistry. Instead of relying on antiquated manual techniques, our dentists, lab technicians, and other dental professionals use advanced technological tools to enhance dental services and treatments.
Some of the benefits of dental technology are:
- Accurate readings of the mouth’s structure, including hard and soft tissues
- Highly detailed images
- Immediate computerized data storage
- Quicker, more comfortable dentist visits for patients
Types of Dental Technology We Work With
At Lake Jeanette Orthodontics and Pediatric Dentistry, we incorporate several types of dental technology in our services to give our patients quality care.
Paper charting can take up a lot of time, so we embrace digital charting and maintain our patients’ dental records electronically—making chart readings more accurate, organized, and easier to read.
Though standard x-rays do not emit high radiation levels, digital x-rays emit far less. We use a small sensor inside a mouth to capture images of teeth and the jaw, which we can closely inspect with magnification capabilities to diagnose problems quickly.
For some dental procedures, our digital impression technology allows our team to create a computer-generated replica of a patient’s
hard and soft oral tissues with optical scanning equipment within minutes. The devices are more comfortable, accurate, and cleaner than using traditional oral impression materials.
