As part of a growing trend, many dental practices across the country are utilizing technology to bring better solutions to patients. In turn, greater emphasis is placed on the doctor-patient relationship, while patients receive a higher standard of care. An asset to any practice, leading-edge dental technologies are one way that dentists are upgrading patient care that is comfortable, efficient, and less invasive.
Consider the following dental technologies:
CAD, or Computer Assisted Design and Manufacturing is an advanced dental technology, allowing dentists to plan, design, and fabricate dental restorations. For instance, dentists may use the CAD/CAM system for dental bridges, inlays and onlays, veneers, and crowns.
Both safe and effective, sedation dentistry is especially helpful for patients experiencing dental anxiety. Oral sedation dentistry requires no needles. The patient remains in a conscious state, and is able to respond to the dentist during treatment.
Due to their fit and function, dental implants are considered a leading dental advancement. With the ability of many practices to fabricate crowns on-site, the treatment process relating to dental implants has shortened significantly. For almost any adult with missing teeth, implants are a likely option.
As a modern dental technique, digital x-rays are a comfortable means of obtaining images, while exposing patients to less radiation. As digital radiographs project images onto a computer screen, dentists have the ability to detect problems with the teeth, mouth, or jaw.
The ProMax S3
As a new addition to Frederick Dental, the ProMax S3 is a robust imaging unit, allowing up to 30 different imaging programs. This technology eliminates shadows and ghost images caused by objects outside of the image layer. Maximizing treatment planning and patient safety, the ProMax S3 can take images without requiring patients to wear bitewings.
