Advances in Dental Medicine

The world of dentistry is something that absolutely fascinates me. It’s something that is always advancing and people are always doing new things to make oral care easier than it ever has been before. Have you seen some of the things that have been going on and that your brooklyn dentist has been a part of?

Invisalign

One of the most interesting things now available is Invisalign. In the past, most people had to have braces. And while that’s definitely still a thing, there are more and more adults who are looking to straighten their teeth as well. That’s where Invisalign helps – it’s an invisible retainer/braces hybrid, which allows people to straighten their teeth without all of the hardware.

Digital “Pictures” Of Future Restorations

Patients want to know what their dental treatments are going to look like. Whether they’re getting an implant or a veneer, it’s really important for people to be able to visualize what their “new” teeth are going to look like. Now, with the newest technology out there, dentists and hygienists can show their clients what their teeth are going to look like when all is said and done.

Digital Impressions

We all know what it’s like to have to sit in the dentist’s office and get a mold done of our teeth. We have to sit with our mouths clamped so that the putty can set, and then the dentist gets a full molding of our teeth. But, it doesn’t have to be that way anymore. Now, with the help of 3D imaging, dentists can use the x-rays that are taken of your teeth in order to put together a digital impression.

All of these are great options and they have made going to the dentist both less stressful and less intimidating. What types of dental technology are you excited about?
