We Make "U" Smile & the World Smiles with "U"
 
NEW TECHNOLOGIES IN DENTISTRY
Back

The field of dentistry is constantly evolving and changing to best suit patient needs. We at Smile Hub are always on the lookout for new and emerging technology to make our patients’ experience as comfortable as possible. Listed here are just a few of the different technologies that we use or would be using in the near future to ensure world-class service to all our patients:

Digital X-Rays

Digital X-rays are faster and contain less radiation than traditional X-rays. When a patient has a digital X-ray done, the image appears on the computer in a matter of seconds. Your dentist can then zoom into the image to better assess and educate the patient regarding their oral health. Digital X-rays are also less harmful for patients as they contain up to 90% less radiation compared to traditional X-rays.

Dental Implant

Dental implants are screw-replacements for the root portion of missing teeth. Implants are used to restore healthy smiles when patients have missing teeth. Implants are effective because they can replace missing teeth, while still giving the patient the feel and look of a natural tooth.

 

Single Sitting Root Canal Treatment

The practice of modern endodontics has undergone a significant revolution with the introduction of several new technologies that improve efficiency, safety, and quality of the root canal treatment. Rotary Nickel Titanium (NiTi) instruments, Digital radiography, Electronic Apex Locators and Vertical Obturation Equipment viz. ‘Touch n Heat’ & Obtura are considered the major advancements in the practice of Endodontics in the past two decades.

With the advent of new technologies in Endodontics, the conventional lengthy four sitting procedure of root canal treatment is now possible in a Single Sitting. That means, we can now drastically reduce the patient discomfort and time spent at the dental office.

 

Intraoral Camera

The intraoral camera is a tool that dentists use to gain precise and well-defined pictures to see places within a patient’s mouth. The camera also allows dentist to show these images to patients while assessing and educating the patient’s needs. This new form of technology allows dentist to conduct a thorough checkup of your mouth and better assess their patient’s oral care needs.

Lasers in Dentistry

Lasers are used to treat a number of dental problems like:

  • Teeth whitening. Lasers are used to speed up in-office teeth whitening procedures. A peroxide bleaching solution, applied to the tooth surface, is ''activated" by laser energy, which speeds up of the whitening process.
  • Tooth decay. Lasers are used to remove decay within a tooth and prepare the surrounding enamel for receipt of the filling. Lasers are also used to "cure" or harden a filling.
  • Gum disease. Lasers are used to reshape gums and remove bacteria during root canal procedures.
  • Biopsy or lesion removal. Lasers can be used to remove a small piece of tissue (called a biopsy) so that it can be examined for cancer. Lasers are also used to remove lesions in the mouth and relieve the pain of canker sores.

Invisalign

Invisalign are clear, practically invisible braces that can gently straighten your teeth. They provide an effective and comfortable way to straighten your smile without the inconvenience of wearing heavy, metal braces. Invisalign braces are easy to take out for cleaning and don’t require a restriction on what type of foods to eat. They get the job done in less time with less hassle.

Nitrous Oxide and (Intravenous) IV Sedation

Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, can calm a patient down to a point that they are relaxed but can still interact with their dentist. On the other hand, IV sedation puts a patient to sleep completely so that they are unaware of what happened during their dental session. This is usually recommended for patients who are fearful of going to the dentist or for procedures that are painful such as wisdom teeth extraction.

CAT Scans

A 3-D image CAT scan is used to help implantologists (dentists who provide surgical and restorative implant services) view and work on the jawbone or surrounding bone structure to produce more accurate results. CAT scan technology has become increasingly specialized for dentistry as implants, rather than dentures, have become the standard of care for tooth replacement.

 

Microscope: The use of microscopes in dentistry has been one of the latest trends to perfect acute vision for dentists. Microscopes offer dentists the ability to see micro-cracks, weakened underlying tooth structure and the proximity of the dental nerves with precise accuracy. Microscopes also offer more accuracy in removing affected tooth structure while preserving healthy tooth structure. The microscope is an improved diagnostic tool as well as a treatment-assist dental tool.
