High-Tech Dental Office

Overview

One national agency estimates that advances in dental research save Americans more than $4 billion a year. Dentistry today has the most sophisticated, high-tech equipment ever available, allowing the dentist to treat and diagnose with remarkable precision. Such technology also vastly reduces, and in some cases eliminates, much of the pain and discomfort for you. Some of the more exciting advances coming out in dental research include new genetic therapies, tissue repair methods and improved materials that are biocompatible.

Here's a look at some of the newer technologies:

  • High Speed radiography - high speed radiography allows your dentist to easily spot deep tooth problems such as bone loss, deep decay and root canals.

A Future without Drills and Fillings?

Some health experts believe that a future without drills and fillings is not that far off.

From regenerated teeth using your own DNA, to such futuristic techniques called "bio solutions" that treat disease on a molecular level, incredible advances are being explored every day. For example, bacteria that cause decay may one day be able to be modified before they cause damage.
