Dental Technology FAQs
What is the latest technology in dentistry?
Dentistry has evolved tremendously over time, and this means the latest technology involved in treatment has advanced as well. Some of the latest technology in dentistry includes computer-assisted technology, digital x-rays, 3D printing, laser dentistry, and teledentistry. Here at North County Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry, we’ve continued to keep up with these trends in order to provide our patients with an easy, comfortable dental experience.
How are digital X-rays improving dental treatment?
Digital imaging is a great improvement in dentistry that offers features to enhance the viewing of any problem areas. Digital X-rays use low levels of radiation and are easily displayed instantly on a computer screen for both our patients and doctors to see. X-rays are important for diagnosing dental decay, failing crowns and fillings, planning the placement of dental implants, and for root canals.
What is a CBCT or CAT Scan?
CBCT, or CAT scan, is a dental X-ray that helps our dentists examine your teeth or jaws as a 3D image. It’s one of the most useful ways to allow a safe and predictable outcome for dental implants to ensure they’re placed accurately and efficiently.
What is CAD/CAM and how can it help treatment?
CAD/CAM technology, which stands for computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing, is used to design and create crowns, bridges, and dentures. Featuring 3D printing technology, CAD/CAM turns a computer model into physical reality in less than an hour. This means you can come in for treatment preparation and leave with a beautifully restored smile all in one day.
Is laser dentistry safe?
Yes, laser dentistry is an extremely safe technique used in dentistry today. Lasers are less invasive than traditional drills and dental tools, and they offer a faster procedure time and recovery period than ever before. Approved by the ADA, our laser dentistry techniques will help restore the health of your smile right away.
