It’s hard to believe that just 100 years ago, most people would eventually require dentures. As recently as 50 years ago, only a minute number of patients were fitted with braces. Today, not only are fewer people losing their teeth, but advancements in cosmetic dentistry have made teeth much whiter and straighter. Today, your Celina dentist discusses the latest technological advances in the world of family dentistry.
A New Age in Dentistry
Thanks to technology, the unpleasant (and anxiety-inducing) sound of the dreaded drill has become a thing of the past. The following technological advances will make your trip to the dentist today more pleasant than ever.
Digital photography has made it possible for Dr. Ganjoor to take before and after pictures, so you can see your smile transformation. Intraoral cameras take digital photos of the inside of the oral cavity, and the dentist can zoom in to assess the fine details of teeth and gums. This helps with accurate diagnoses for more precise treatment planning.
Digital X-rays require less radiation, which reduces the patient’s exposure. These innovative images are also highly detailed and easy to store and transfer online.
Cone beam 3D X-rays provide Dr. Ganjoor with a three-dimensional view of your teeth roots and jaw structure. These X-rays provide unprecedented insight for treatment planning implant and orthodontic cases.
Ultrasonic scaling uses sound waves to vibrate plaque and tartar off of teeth. Instead of a traditional metal scraper, our hygienists can use ultrasonic scaling for a less invasive and more comfortable dental cleaning.
VELscope oral cancer screening allows us to detect potentially dangerous squamous cells beneath the surface of soft oral tissue. By the time the cells reach the surface and create a visible lesion, if they are cancerous, treatment could be less effective. Studies show, finding and treating oral cancer in the earliest stages leads to the most promising outcome for patients.
