Modern and advanced dental solutions and procedures have made the dentist’s job easier. On the other hand, patients have benefited from convenient and painless procedures in the treatment of common dental problems. Tooth replacement methods have also been improved with dental implants and the new discovery of 3D tissue regeneration. Technology in dentistry is not just limited to regular caries or tooth decay removal procedures; It also accommodates sensitive procedures such as jaw joint alignment.
Here are some dental technologies and equipment that help dental professionals effectively diagnose and treat tooth and gum conditions:
1) Computer Aided Design and Computer Aided Manufacturing –
It deals with the manufacture of dental prostheses and other dental restorations through precision computerized technology. This includes porcelain veneers, dental luminaires, dental crowns and bridges, inlays and onlays.
2) Diagnosis –
Used for caries detection by using sound and laser pulse for early detection of dental caries. Helps minimize the damaging effects of cavities by preserving healthy natural tooth structure as soon as cavities and cavities are detected.
3) Cavity detection solution –
It is made of a red liquid dye that is applied to the tooth to detect cavities, just like disclosing tablets. Highlight the area where decay or tooth cavity is present.
4) Digital radiography –
These are digital x-rays that can capture images of the teeth, bones, and structure of the mouth using a sensor that then processes the image on a digital screen. Minimizes patient exposure to radiation, where four digital X-rays equal one traditional X-ray output.
5) Air abrasion –
This is an alternative to the dental drill tool and uses aluminum oxide and air for more precise removal of tooth decay. You can also access the remote location of dental caries.
6) Intraoral camera –
The tool can produce images of the tooth structure that are accurate and in real time. It can also give the dentist and patient a view of areas that are rarely touched during brushing or those remote areas on the teeth that already have cavities or cavities.
7) Dental laser equipment-
Dental laser equipment minimizes pain and discomfort due to the sutureless procedures that can be performed with lasers. Dental laser tools are used in the regeneration of blood vessels, removal of cavities, dental fillings, surgical procedures for the treatment of speech impediments, treatment of cold sores, and even the removal of benign tumors.
