5 Tools and Techniques at the Frontier of Modern Dentistry

As technology advances, so does our ability to care for our patients. Thanks to improvements in the accuracy and efficiency of our tools, we are able to catch issues like oral cancer, gum disease, and tooth decay early on, allowing us to treat them more easily.

The continual improvement of dental tools and techniques means the highest quality care for you and your family. Modern dentistry is where technology, science, and dentistry collide to form a practice dedicated to education and advancement.

With over 25 years of experience, Dr. Lee has mastered and implemented a number of  innovative tools and techniques to make sure her practice is at the forefront of cutting-edge technology.

What can be treated with modern dentistry?

Thanks to the accuracy and precision of modern dental tools, we have the ability to treat many different oral health complications better than ever before. With the technological advances of modern dentistry we can:

  • Catch oral cancers in the early stage
  • Treat tooth decay before it becomes severe
  • Track your oral health with high-tech imaging
  • Practice less invasive techniques
  • Provide patients with thinner veneers and better bonding
  • Provide faster, more efficient dental care

Here are five of the modern dentistry technologies to make your dental experience more comfortable and beneficial: 

1) Intraoral Cameras

By capturing 3-D images of your mouth, intraoral cameras provide accurate information crucial to planning cosmetic and restorative procedures. They also provide greater patient comfort by eliminating the need for messy and uncomfortable putty impressions.

2) Soft Tissue Laser

If you are in need of gum contouring to reshape your smile or prevent gum disease, the soft tissue laser can provide the necessary surgery without the use of scalpels and sutures. Since it is a concentrated beam of light, the laser cauterizes and cuts at the same time making the procedure more precise and the recovery time shorter.

3) ViziLite

The combination of fluorescent lighting and tissue dyes allows ViziLite to identify tiny abnormalities on the tongue, gums, tonsils, and cheeks, increasing the likelihood of catching and treating oral cancer before it’s too late.

4) Digital Dentures

Since all of the information obtained from digital denture impressions is stored electronically, the process of fitting patients with new dentures can be sped up dramatically providing faster and more accurately customized results.

5) Digital X-Rays

This tool allows our team to study high-resolution images of your teeth and jaw without exposing you to radiation. We can detect abnormalities as early as possible while keeping you safe and comfortable.
