Future of Dentistry is Here – Must Check Blog 2023
January 19, 2023

In the medical world, it is always important to be in the know. Staying up-to-date with newer technologies and treatment options can help you provide quality dental care and treatment to your patients. Just like in other specialties, technology also plays a huge role in dentistry. Here we have discussed a few of the most recent developments in dental technology that you can avail of in our dental office, offering better patient comfort, treatment, and convenience. Continue reading to learn more about it.

  • LASER Dentistry: ‘LASER’ stands for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. The laser creates light energy in a very focused and narrow beam. Laser dentistry produces a reaction when it hits the tissues and helps in removing the diseased ones. Our skilled and experienced dentists also use LASER for performing various gum shaping procedures like ‘gingivoplasty’ or ‘gingivectomy’. LASER application in dentistry is not only limited to soft tissues but also has some hard tissue applications like protecting your teeth from caries, removal of old filling material, and helping in cavity preparation for dental restoration.
  • Single Tooth Anesthesia(STA): Most dental patients have one thing in common; they don’t like anesthetic shots. Moreover, in several cases, they must endure multiple shots to numb the teeth in question. Taking multiple anesthetic shots for one single procedure makes it a nightmare for dental patients. However, to make the process more comfortable and hassle-free, we use the Wand Single Tooth Anesthesia system. Instead of numbing the whole area, this Wand STA will only numb the specific tooth your dentist needs to work on. This will also deliver a computer-controlled flow of anesthesia to the target area and will create a more comfortable dental treatment experience.
  • Periowave: Periowave is considered the gold standard treatment for bacteria responsible for gum diseases. Our dentists offer Periowave therapy along with scaling and root planing, which significantly improve the treatment outcome. This arrests the progression of gum diseases by eliminating harmful bacteria and their toxins and gradually starts the healing process for your gums.
  • Intra-oral Camera Dentistry: With the use of advanced intraoral cameras, our expert dentists will be able to examine their patients’ mouths in greater detail. These cameras will allow dentists to see with more clarity than they would with their naked eyes. This way, patients will sit more comfortably without the pain of opening their mouths for extended periods. The technology will help our dentists detect potential problems earlier. Aside from that, it allows for more precise treatment than conventional options. It’s much easier to understand and manage your dental health when you can see everything your dentist sees. Your dentist gives you increased health autonomy and all the benefits that come with it by pointing out potential problem areas inside your mouth.
  • 3D Digital Scanner: Our dental office is equipped with a Trios 3 shape. It delivers precise intraoral scanning efficiently and effectively. The product is equipped with a scanning gun and tip, a power adaptor, and customized software. It can be widely used with various clinical treatments like restoration, orthodontics, or dental implant procedures.
  • SDF Treatment: This is a clear fluid that can be used to prevent the further progression of caries. Our expert dentists typically use this for patients who do not want or are unable to receive traditional restorative dental treatment. This easy-to-apply liquid can be used specifically for children and for people with special needs. Unlike other traditional treatment options, this is completely safe and painless.
  • Digital X-rays and Impressions: The days are gone when you had to bite into a gooey putty for making an impression of your smile. Today, we can skip all those with 3-D scans that can create a virtual digital design of your smile. You can even approve and make changes to your smile before we proceed to work. Digital dental radiography is always preferred over traditional radiography. With lesser exposure to radiation and faster processing time, digital X-rays allow for higher-quality care for our patients.
  • CEREC- Same Day Crowns: We value your time. That’s why we provide CEREC- same-day crowns, which can restore the function of your teeth immediately. This also reduces the number of dental visits you need for getting a crown. These ceramic-made CEREC crowns fit perfectly over your teeth and make them comfortable to wear.
  • PBM Therapy: PBM therapy or Photobiomodulation therapy aka low-level laser therapy uses red light and near-infrared light over injuries to reduce inflammation and induce healing. With its pain-relieving action for both acute and chronic pain, we use its application for neuropathic pain, and to relieve the symptoms of TMD (Temporomandibular Disorders).

At our office, we incorporate technology into all aspects of our dental care to ensure that all of our patients have access to the best treatments available. Here at Royal East Dental, we are passionate about providing quality dental care, which is why we always keep our latest dental technologies at your disposal.
