Benefits of Dental Technology

There are many benefits to dental technology for both dentists and patients. Dentists benefit from technology because they can now correct oral health problems much more quickly. Patients benefit because their procedures can be performed quickly and more comfortably and because more treatment options are available to them. Advances in technology have also made many treatments more affordable.

By using dental technology, our dentist and team can:

  • Better understand your oral health and your dental needs
  • Make faster and more accurate diagnoses
  • Create individualized treatment plans tailored to your needs
  • Help ensure your treatments are more precise and effective
  • Enhance your comfort during treatment
  • Provide faster and more efficient care
  • Reduce your recovery time following treatment
  • Provide better long-term results for your oral health and smile

Each type of technology used in our office has its own benefits, and we will be happy to provide you with more information. We encourage you to contact our team for more details if you have questions.

Common Types of Dental Technology

Our practice features many types of dental technologies, ranging from diagnostic equipment such as X-rays to devices used to create restorations and appliances. Here are some of the technologies you may see our dentist and team using when you visit us:


How safe are dental X-rays?

Dental X-rays are very safe for patients of all ages. In fact, you are exposed to less radiation with dental X-rays than you are by exposure to the sun in your day-to-day life. Best of all, as technology advances, X-rays become even more safe. Digital imaging technologies and higher-speed X-rays produce up to 90% less radiation than film X-rays, for example. Additionally, federal law requires that X-ray machines be checked for safety and accuracy regularly, and our dentist and team make sure to follow these guidelines and keep our X-ray machines in tip-top condition.

How does dental technology change my dental experience?

Dental technology has greatly improved the experience of visiting the dental office. In the past, dental appointments were often associated with stress, anxiety and discomfort. Technology changes your experience from the moment you arrive at the office, giving you a personalized treatment process that is more comfortable and faster with more reliable treatment outcomes and minimal or no stress or anxiety. For example, electronic health records allow our dentist and team to protect your personal information while also allowing us to update your records for treatment. Advanced imaging technology allows us to view your teeth and mouth in greater detail to detect even the smallest of problems. Natural-looking and biocompatible materials allow our dentist to provide you with durable, naturally beautiful and healthier treatment options. We invite you to contact our team today to find out more about the technologies used in our office and how they can benefit you!

How is dental technology important to my health and well-being?

Your oral health plays a vital role in your overall health and well-being. Your mouth is a gateway to your body, and in many cases, a problem that impacts your oral health will also contribute to a medical condition as well. The advances in dental technology allow our dentist to diagnose developing problems and provide treatment earlier so that you can regain your oral health and continue to enjoy all the benefits of a healthy mouth and smile. Problems which are diagnosed early are easier to treat and can often be treated in a fraction of the time they would have required in the past. Technology also allows our dentist to provide you with less invasive treatment options and procedures which are more comfortable. Give us a call to learn more!
