Dental Technology

State-of-the-art Technology

3D digital X-rays, also known as cone beam computed tomography (CBCT), is a type of dental imaging technology that provides a detailed 3D image of the teeth, jawbone, and other structures in the head and neck area. Unlike traditional X-rays, which produce a two-dimensional image, 3D digital X-rays provide a more complete picture of the oral structures, allowing dentists to better diagnose and treat dental issues.

Intraoral scanners are a type of digital technology used in dentistry to create digital impressions of the teeth and gums. The scanner uses a wand-like device that is moved over the teeth, capturing images and creating a 3D model of the mouth. This technology is used to create precise models for restorative dental work, such as crowns, bridges, and implants.

Intraoral cameras are small, handheld cameras that can capture high-resolution images of the teeth and gums. These cameras are used to help dentists diagnose dental issues that may not be visible to the naked eye, such as cavities or cracks in the teeth. Intraoral cameras can also be used to show patients their own dental images, helping them better understand their dental health and treatment options.

Laser dentistry is a type of dental treatment that uses laser technology to perform a variety of dental procedures, such as removing decayed or damaged tissue, reshaping the gums, and removing bacteria from infected areas. Laser dentistry is often preferred over traditional dental techniques because it is less invasive, reduces bleeding and swelling, and promotes faster healing times. Laser dentistry is also used in cosmetic dentistry to perform procedures like teeth whitening or gum contouring.

Overall, these technologies are advancing the field of dentistry by providing more accurate diagnoses, less invasive treatments, and improved patient experiences.
