Going to the dentist wasn’t always the most enjoyable experience. However, with the advancement of dental technology, dental visits are quicker and easier than ever before. The dentist doesn’t have to be a visit you dread anymore. Here at Maitland Ave. Smile Co., we keep up with the latest dental technology to make sure your experience at your Altamonte Springs, FL dentist is as pleasant as possible.
What Dental Technology is Available?
Maitland Ave. Smile Co. offers various pieces of dental technology equipment. These include:
- Cone Beam CT
- Digital radiographs
- Intraoral cameras
- Guided implant surgery
What do these technologies do? And how can they make your dentist visit better?
Cone Beam CT
This advanced device gives the dentist a full 3D view of the mouth and everything around it. They can see the teeth, soft tissue, and bone structure. This is usually used for restorative procedures such as placing dental implants, wisdom teeth removal, and assessing the amount of bone in the jaw.
CEREC provides the ability to take dental crowns to the next level. With CEREC, you can get custom dental crowns done in one visit to our office. Digital images are taken of your tooth. Then, a 3D model is created from those images to make your dental crown with a machine in-office. It’s then tested on your tooth to make sure it’s the right fit and doesn’t need any adjustments.
With CEREC crowns, you get a durable crown that looks natural and is built to last. It’s metal-free so there’s no need to worry about any metal allergies. If you struggle with impressions and molds, it also eliminates the need for those. Nor will you need temporary crowns and have to come back in to get the permanent ones attached.
Digital radiographs are just another term for digital x-rays. This is a step up from traditional x-rays, and gives a better, more accurate image of the tooth. If radiation is a concern for you, this form of x-ray exposes you to less of it.
This is one of the best ways to get a detailed view of any problems happening inside the mouth. A tiny camera moves around your mouth, taking images of any issues found. This helps us create a treatment plan specifically for you.
Guided Implant Surgery
A dentist must ensure the correct positioning of a dental implant. If the base for the implant isn’t in the right place, the implant won’t function properly. We use two of our other technology offerings, the intraoral camera, and Cone Beam CT, to create the most detailed overview of your mouth possible. We use these images to create a digital treatment plan. This allows us to plot out the best place or places for your implants.
How Does Dental Technology Help Me?
Dental technology is used for efficiency and making the patient comfortable. For you, this means that the process will be less invasive than before. It’s also a goal of technological advancements in dentistry to make procedures quicker. We know you don’t want to spend long days in the dentist’s chair. This technology offers you the best overall dental procedure process available today.
