Today’s article highlights how behind-the-scenes dental technology helps us serve our patients.
CAD (computer-aided design) and CAM (computer-aided manufacturing) are used for many restorative procedures. These include same-day inlays/onlays and crowns.
Dentists who offer dental implants can use CAD/CAM technology in every phase of the dental implant procedure.
CAD/CAM is also used in dental laboratories to engineer crowns, bridges, implants, veneers, and ceramic braces.
Most Missouri dental offices use digital X-rays. Realtime digital images help dentists more easily make diagnosis. Dentists can enlarge and otherwise optimize a digital image to get a clearer picture of what’s going on.
Digital X-rays emit up to 70% less radiation. Plus, they are easier to store and access. Because they don’t require film or processing chemicals, they are more eco-friendly than conventional X-rays.
Pinpoint-precise Diode lasers are used in dental services including crown lengthening, root scaling, biopsies, root canals, teeth whitening, oral lesion removal, and treatment of decay.
Laser procedures often reduce the need for anesthesia. They cause less bleeding because the laser stimulates blood clotting. Lasers help sterilize the treatment area, reducing the risk of an infection.
The latest technology helps our team provide extraordinary dental service to our patients. The future of dentistry is here today at Jefferson City Dental Care.
