What role does technology play in great dental care?
Technological advancements improve virtually every aspect of modern dental care. From devices that enable dentists to visualize the exterior and interior areas of each tooth to treatment platforms that offer an astounding degree of precision, technology improves dental care at every step along the way.
What technology cannot do is replace the interpersonal interaction between patient and practitioner. Those human connections are integral to creating a trusting bond with your dentist and the support staff at the practice.
At Smile HB Dental & Orthodontics, you always have access to the very best dental technology. You can also feel confident that the staff you rely on remains dedicated to getting to know you and delivering personalized, personable care.
What kinds of technology is available?
A great deal of research goes into determining the technology brought into the practice. Team members attend ongoing education opportunities to learn how to leverage these tools to the greatest advantage.
X-ray technology has long been part of dental care, but today’s X-rays offer the chance to achieve a clearer image with significantly lower radiation exposure. Digital imaging displays on a screen rather than using film, which creates clearer images. Immediately viewable, those images can also be stored digitally for an indefinite period of time.
iTero® digital scanner
The iTero digital scanner is an intraoral system. It uses a comfortable, handheld wand your dentist maneuvers around the interior of your mouth. This device creates 3D digital imaging of your teeth, as well as your bone tissue. These images guide and improve treatments like crowns, bridges, inlays and onlays, and Invisalign®.
These are just some of the advanced systems available at Smile HB Dental & Orthodontics.
How do I know which forms of technology are part of my treatment plan?
During your visits, your dentist and members of the support staff explain the tools and technology used to improve your dental health. You’re always encouraged to ask questions as they arise.
When there are options for a specific treatment, you learn the pros and cons of each approach before making a decision. In some cases, the most technologically advanced approach isn’t the best fit for your needs.
