The field of dentistry is constantly changing, adapting, and advancing, and your dentist has more help than ever in diagnosing your condition and performing the necessary treatment. These dental advancements have also made treatments more comfortable for the patient. Watch this video for a look at recent dentistry advances.
Modern dentistry makes use of all sorts of high-tech equipment that was unimaginable not too long ago. Traditional dentures are now being replaced with dentures anchored by implants and dental implants themselves. Computers also allow for the easy and accurate fabrication of bridges, dentures, and crowns. Digital radiography has proven itself as a safer alternative to traditional X-rays, putting the patient under less exposure. Furthermore, the images that digital radiography produces tend to be more accurate than alternative imaging solutions. Without these recent advances, modern dentistry would not be as safe and effective as it is today.
