The dental industry is constantly evolving and changing to suit the needs of the patient. The expert dentists are always on the lookout for new and emerging technologies to make our patient experience as comfortable as possible. Here are some of the different techniques that dental organ surgeons use to ensure that we provide world class service to all our patients:
VELscope is a special type of light that the dental organ surgeons will shine in the patient’s mouth to detect any abnormality. This new form of technology is used effectively during the detection of oral cancer to detect early forms of cancer or disease.
2. Digital X-rays
Digital X-rays are faster and have less radiation than conventional X-rays. When a patient is digitally x-rayed, his image appears on the computer in seconds. Your dentist can zoom in on the image to better assess and educate the patient about their oral health. Digital X-rays are also less harmful to patients because they contain 90% less radiation than conventional X-rays.
Invisalign is a clear, practically invisible bracket that can lightly straighten your teeth. They offer an efficient and comfortable way to straighten your smile without the discomfort of wearing heavy, metal brackets. Invisible brackets for cleaning are easy to remove and do not require restrictions on what type of food to eat. They get the job done in less time with less hassle.
4. Laser Dentistry
Lasers are used to improve efficiency and eliminate discomfort in many dental procedures, including filling cavities, reducing tooth sensitivity, removing tumours, and teeth whitening. Laser dentistry is quick, painless and can effectively remove any type of bacteria during the procedure to avoid further complications or problems.
5. Dental Implants
Dental implants are a screw-replacement for the root part of a lost tooth. Implants are used to restore a healthy smile when patients’ teeth are missing. Implants are effective as they can replace missing teeth, while giving the patient a natural tooth feel and appearance.
6. Heel Ozone
Heel ozone is a quick, easy and painless way to get rid of tooth decay. Heel ozone is effective because it contains ozone (O3), a common, natural gas that effectively kills bacteria and fungi. Heel ozone is an excellent tool for finding and getting rid of any early signs of tooth decay.
7. Diagnostic tools
Diagnostic is a new, sophisticated tool used by dental organ surgeons to locate hidden cavities in places where regular X-rays cannot be found. This ensures that your mouth is thoroughly examined for the early signs of a cavity so that you can avoid spending more in the future if the cavity grows and expands.
8. Intraoral Camera
An intraoral camera is a device used by dental organ surgeons to visualize the locations inside the patient’s mouth to obtain accurate and well-defined images. The camera also allows the dentist to show these images to patients while evaluating and educating the patient’s needs. This new form of technology allows the dentist to thoroughly examine your mouth and better evaluate your patient’s oral care needs.
9. Zoom! Whitewash
Zoom! Whitening is a new, sophisticated white colour treatment that gives our patients quick and easy results. Zoom in on just one visit! Whitening can make a significant difference in a person’s smile and whiten their teeth up to eight shades.
10. Nitrous oxide and (intravenous) IV sedation
Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, can calm the patient as long as he is resting but can still communicate with the dental organ surgeons. IV sedation, on the other hand, puts the patient to full sleep so that they are not aware of what happened during their dental session. It is usually recommended for patients who are afraid to go to the dentist or for painful procedures such as wisdom tooth extraction.
