Making Dental Treatment Safer with Technology

Maintaining the optimal health and safety of our patients throughout their dental treatment is an important part of our dedication to providing high-quality care for children of all ages. In addition to maintaining high standards of safety and cleanliness throughout the office, this also includes making the most of advanced dental technologies and safer, more biocompatible materials in all of our treatment processes.

Using digital imaging and X-rays

The use of X-rays is an important part of dental treatment, whether it’s for routine care and record upkeep or for a comprehensive diagnosis and precise treatment planning. One of the more significant benefits of digital X-rays is the fact they produce up to 90% less radiation when used. Compared to traditional radiographical procedures, digital X-rays help make your child’s routine general or restorative care safer from the beginning. The results of digital X-rays are also nearly instant, producing images that are highly detailed and able to be enhanced without losing clarity. In addition to safer and streamlined imaging, this means your child’s dental visits can be completed faster and more comfortably, as well.

The use of biocompatible materials

Using technology to create safer and more convenient treatment processes goes a long way in improving the overall treatment process for your child. However, we also strive to achieve optimal results while minimizing the extent of treatment by using materials that interact more favorably with your child’s natural oral tissues and structures, such as:

Composite resin

Composite resin is a biocompatible material that’s often used to create precise, highly conservative tooth fillings. If your child has a cavity, then receiving a tooth-colored filling will not only help restore and preserve the tooth, but also help eliminate any health concerns that might arise from the use of metal in your child’s dental restoration.

Dental porcelain

Like composite resin, dental porcelain is designed to mimic your child’s healthy, natural tooth structure, but can be utilized to create a more durable restoration for conditions such as damage to a tooth. A porcelain crown helps restore your child’s oral health and bite function while preserving the strength and integrity of the tooth structure underneath it, all while blending in almost seamlessly with your child’s smile.
