Modern dentistry has made great strides over the years in improving technology and techniques. As a result, dental procedures have become more effective, efficient, and comfortable for patients. If an unpleasant experience at the dentist has kept you away in the past, you should know that your experience at the dental office will be much different now thanks to state-of-the-art technology. Here are details on some of the advanced equipment your dentist in Brampton is using.
For over 25 years the dental laser has been making patients feel more comfortable during procedures such as, gum disease therapy, gum grafts and contouring, and even the removal of tooth decay for a dental filling. The laser combines light and heat that pinpoints diseased tissue and removes it with accuracy and precision without affecting your surrounding healthy tissue. The laser also sterilizes and seals the treated area, which accelerates the healing process.
Dental lasers have also been used for diagnosing tooth decay in its very early stages, which allows you to treat it right away before it becomes a more significant issue.
Patients have often been concerned about the amount radiation dental x-rays emit and if they are safe. The good news is that digital x-rays provide a multitude of benefits for both patients and dentists and they are very safe as they emit 80% less radiation than traditional x-rays taken in the past. They are also safer for the environment because no harsh chemicals are required for development.
If you’ve ever had a tooth restored with a dental crown, you might remember that it can be quite a process. It required two long visits with your dentist and two to four weeks to complete your final restoration at a dental laboratory. Many patients found it difficult to fit all this time into their busy schedule.
Well, those days are gone! CEREC technology, which stands for chairside economical restoration of esthetic ceramics, has completely streamlined the process of completing a crown into one visit with your dentist.
CEREC uses 3-D technology to scan an image of your tooth directly to a milling machine located in your dentist’s office. Your new porcelain crown is fabricated to your dentist’s exact specifications while you wait, which means that you will leave your appointment with a fully functioning and aesthetically appealing tooth.
CEREC is beneficial for all patients, but especially those who are experiencing a dental emergency that requires same-day treatment.
