Dentist use X-rays to detect damage in the mouth, and examine the resulting films on a special light board. The amount of radiation of these rays is very low and the radiation does not usually get to other areas of the body. There are several advantages in a dental X-ray done. This procedure helps the dentist to properly diagnose and treat dental problems. Dental X-rays shows broken teeth, broken bones, tooth decay, abscesses and mouth disease. It is important to understand that there are three main types of dental X-rays. These include full mouth series of X-rays, X-ray bite that is usually taken once a year and a panoramic radiograph.
The Waterlase system is revolutionary dental device that uses laser-energized water to cut teeth. This is an innovative technology HYDROKINETIC for dental procedures that were previously painful. With this device you'll no longer suffer. When you go to the dentist, it works for working hard tissue (teeth and bone) and soft (gums) in both children and adults. It also improves the gingival design procedure works cavities without anesthesia and allows more precise bone surgery.
This laser has the advantage of cutting tissue, being able to replace the scalpel in surgery. The Waterlase system emits a laser beam with high precision water. It produces no thermal damage to the tissue and allows better postoperatively.
1. It does not produce any heat or vibration during operation.
2. Cutting accuracy provided by this laser enables less invasive treatments, preserving most of the healthy tooth structure. This way you can keep the tooth itself longer. This cutting system can perform a number of operations on the soft tissue without bleeding and with great precision, resulting in a much faster recovery without edema.
3. Minimally invasive dentistry because its accuracy can save most of healthy tooth.
4. This cutting system can perform a large number of interventions on soft tissue (gums) with no or minimal bleeding.
You can now sit back in your chair and watch the real time picture of the inside of your mouth, that too, magnified beyond the normal size on a computer. Yes, this is now possible with the help of the intra oral camera. It makes simple for you to watch and understand what is doctor trying to explain you.
The search for cancer (or states that may lead to cancer) in people who have no symptoms, is called carrying out screening of cancer. These tests can help doctors to find and treat various cancers. Early detection is important because the abnormal tissue or cancer is found early may be easier to treat. By the time symptoms appear, cancer may have begun to spread and is harder to treat. There are several tests that can detect cancer early and reduce the chance of dying from this cancer. But it is important to note that screening can cause damage. Some screenings may cause some bleeding or other health problems. There is the possibility of false positive result. That is, the results of screening tests indicate there may be cancer even though it was not really. There is also the possibility of false negative results obtained. That is, the results of the screening indicate that cancer is not present even though yes it is. A false negative result may provide a false confidence, which makes the diagnosis delay and possibly causing the individual does not seek medical treatment even if symptoms occur.
Currently the system Cone-beam computed tomography (CBTM) can be used in medical and dental world. The cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) has-been applied to Dentistry and Medicine all over the world. This system is based on an algorithm, which corrects the deformities. It provides visualization of tumors, therefore the professional will easily localize with a minimum degree of mistake, and achieve a better treatment plan for the patient.
Wand is computer controlled equipment allowing the fluid pressure and flow rate anesthetic be precisely controlled in real time during the phase of injection process. The flow and pressure with which the anesthetic is applied are taught by specialized sensors, thus ensuring that injections are slow and do not sit. STA system (Single Tooth Anesthesia) it can numb only one tooth. WAND is a syringe. It is a device that consists of three elements: the tower of a minicomputer, a thin plastic tube connected to the tower. To start the process, the dentist presses a pedal which is also connected to the tower. The computer does the rest! The dentist is only concerned with keeping the tip of the device in the correct position.
CEREC is an acronym for Chairside Economic Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. Dentist can economically restore damaged teeth in a single appointment using a high-quality ceramic material that matches the natural color of other teeth. CEREC has two decades of clinical research and practical experience to support the success of this technology. More than eight million restorations have been performed worldwide using the CEREC technology. CEREC uses CAD / CAM (Computer Aided Design / Computer Aided Manufacturing), incorporating a machine camera, computer and milling in a single instrument. The dentist uses a special camera to take an accurate picture of the damaged tooth. This acquisition is transferred and displayed on a computer screen color where the dentist uses CAD technology to design the restoration. Then CAM takes over and automatically creates the restoration while the patient waits. Whole process takes about an hour.
