Technology is the driving force to most of the dental treatments nowadays. Without the help of modern technology, some of the essential treatments will not be possible or at the very least, will be undertaken with great uncertainty and through a much longer period of time.
We may take technology for granted, but the fact remains that we will not be enjoying beautiful smiles and good oral health without the help of technological breakthroughs – both in procedures and in products in the world of dentistry.
New Kings Road Dental Practice believes in the immense power of technology. This is the reason why we make sure that we keep up-to-date on the latest breakthroughs in the dentistry world – so we can give you the most accurate and reliable dental treatments in the quickest ways possible.
Which Technologies are used in Dentistry?
- Digital X-Rays/Imaging – Digital imaging makes it possible for images to be obtained without exposing the patient to too much radiation. This imaging technology enables dentists to take precise images of the oral anatomy, in a manner that is comfortable to the patient.
At NKRD, we use Examine PRO Digital Imaging to bring together a patient’s digital images coming from a variety of sources, into a single database. This technology can be used with a wide range of digital hardware to flawlessly integrate the images into a dental practice management software system – where images can easily be retrieved, printed, copied and stored without changing its original format.
- Dental Implants – These artificial tooth roots have benefited countless individuals worldwide by providing long-lasting, reliable missing teeth solutions. The latest advances in dental implantology makes it possible for the implants to be loaded within the same day that the teeth replacements are attached, instead of waiting for a few months for the implants to be healed.
- Air Abrasion – The use of air abrasion to remove decayed teeth parts is a significant advancement over the use of a dental drill, mostly because using this technology eliminates the need for a local anaesthetic.
- Sedation Dentistry – The technology of sedation dentistry makes it possible for nervous patients to have a dental treatment in a very relaxed, comfortable manner – without worrying about dental phobia concerns.
- CAD/CAM – The technology used in Computer Assisted Design/Computer Assisted Manufacture (CAD/CAM) aids in the highly-accurate design of materials or items to be constructed as part of a dental treatment. With CAD/CAM technology, dental restorations such as dental crowns, dental bridges, inlays/onlays, and porcelain veneers can now be created to resemble the appearance and feel of natural teeth.
- Laser Dentistry – Laser dentistry offers a less invasive method for dental treatments, and results to a shorter recovery period with almost no pain experienced. This technology is used for indications such as removal of tooth decay, cold sores, crown lengthening, dental fillings, gummy smile improvements, teeth sensitivity, and others.
