How Does Technology Make Dentistry Fun?
Hi, Dr Thea here, one of the gentle dentists of Dental House Group.
Visiting a high-tech dental office can transform your experience. Going to the dentist is pretty routine, but that doesn’t mean appointments have to be boring, stressful, or tedious. Visiting a dental office that has the latest dental technology can transform something as typical as an exam or filling a cavity into a fun, relaxing experience.
At Dental House Group, we focus heavily on our relationships with our patients and on positively improving their experience as much as we can. We practice gentle, compassionate dental care and we outfit our office with high-tech dental equipment with this same idea in mind.
Let’s go over some ways our high-tech dental equipment improves your experience during dental appointments.
Firstly, you can spend less time getting x-rays and impressions taken thanks to digital x-rays and 3D imaging. One of the most tedious processes of dental visits is getting x-rays and images taken, especially if you’re a new patient getting a full panel of images during a comprehensive exam. Since we’ve updated our dental technology with new imaging equipment, we’re happy to say that getting your x-rays is the easiest it’s ever been. We use digital x-rays, which means we can take x-rays faster and with more precision. Best of all it means reduced radiation exposure for our patients.
We also use cone beam 3D imaging which takes a 3D picture of your smile versus the 2D digital x-rays. We rely heavily on this when planning dental implants and other forms of restorative or cosmetic dentistry. And did we mention this in-depth 3D cone beam imaging only takes about 10-15 seconds to take? And you don’t need to go anywhere. It all happens at our clinics, saving you time!
Secondly, you can walk out of your appointment with your new permanent crown the same day with CEREC technology. Temporary crowns can be uncomfortable and not as aesthetically pleasing as the final product. At Dental House, we use the CEREC system which means our patients get same-day crowns. The CEREC system creates beautiful, custom ceramic crowns in a single dental visit. These crowns are very durable and are colour-matched to your surrounding teeth for an ultra-realistic appearance.
Thirdly, you can see exactly what your dentist is seeing inside your mouth with the help of an intraoral camera. We’ve always done our very best to keep our patients in the loop of what exactly is going on in their mouths, but sometimes words can only go so far. We chose to invest in intraoral cameras to solve this issue and ensure our patients are always on the same page as us. Intraoral cameras transmit directly to our computer monitors and give us a detailed look at your teeth. Being able to get a view of what your dentist is seeing can be a lot of fun and may even ease the worries of patients with dental anxiety.
We use laser dentistry for a number of different procedures, including improving our patients’ gum or smile line. The result is less discomfort, less pain, and less swelling. Laser technology also reduces the chances of bleeding. With these factors combined, patients who are treated with laser technology generally have an easier and faster healing time post-treatment.
We’re excited to share this modern experience with you! Here at Dental House Group, we offer all of these technologies and much more. So if you are looking for a new dental home for you and your family, we would love to look after you!
