Advanced Dental Technologies That Prosthodontists Use
Posted on 4/10/2023 by Alexandra Garcia DDS MS
Using advanced dental technology is just as paramount as being up-to-date on the newest treatment techniques. Prosthodontists strive to provide safe and convenient treatment options and as such, dental technologies come in handy to deliver better results. Some of the technologies include:
Digital X Rays
Digital X-rays offer advanced, reliable imaging options allowing prosthodontists to save time and provide clearer photos. Additionally, these x-rays expose patients to minimal radiation compared to traditional x-rays.
When it comes to dental health, prevention is very important. A prosthodontist will look for new, improved ways that help achieve a healthier smile. Although x-rays offer essential details, they do not provide a complete view of all the things going on inside the mouth. This is where intraoral cameras come in handy. The use of an intraoral camera allows a dental specialist to see every aspect of the mouth, teeth, and gums with incredible details. A prosthodontist is able to uncover cracked teeth, cavities next to dental fillings, plaque deposits, and excessive wear of the teeth. This allows the specialist to offer effective treatment and dental procedures.
Digital Dental Impressions
In the past, dental impressions involved those messy, gooey impressions. Many patients didn't like them, but today, digital impressions help provide a more comfortable experience. This new impression technology creates an accurate replica of the mouth, allowing a prosthodontist to make more precisely fitting teeth restorations.
Digital CT Imaging
To help provide quick, effective, and comfortable dental imaging, our prosthodontist utilizes digital CT imaging technology. This imaging system offers a precise dental health diagnosis. Digital technology offers 3D imaging data for impactions, wisdom teeth extractions, dental implants, and TMJ treatment.
Come to our prosthodontic office to experience our range of dental technologies. From digital x-rays to digital CT imaging and intraoral cameras, we ensure that we get a detailed view of the mouth and provide more accurate restorations.
