State of the Art Dental Technology
Shuayb Dental, the best dental practice in Spring Hill FL is always at the forefront of cutting-edge dental technology. Dentistry has come a long way over the last century. Technology is largely responsible for the drastic advancements in the dental care industry. Our dental practice is years and even decades ahead of some dental practices in terms of technology.
Why Does Technology Matter?
Our advanced technology allows us to correctly diagnose dental problems. Dental practices with less sophisticated dental technology are increasing the risk of oversights or misdiagnosis simply because they are not able to obtain all the necessary information due to their outdated equipment.
Technology Saves Time
The proper equipment such as Intraoral cameras and digital imaging allows us to understand the needs of each patient. Therefore, we are able to be prepared for each patient. We are also able to set aside the proper amount of time for each patient. Our laser technology allows us to perform tasks safely and efficiently which allows us to save time. There is usually no need for anesthetics with laser dentistry. Additionally, there is usually no need for sutures which reduces healing time. Laser dentistry reduces the number of follow-up visits. Shuayb Dental is then able to see more patients for procedures. All of our technology allows us to perform efficiently without rushing through procedures. We are therefore able to earn more revenue than a standard dental practice and make our procedures more affordable.
The dentists at Shuayb Dental are very particular about radiographs. We have strict procedural guidelines put into place that outline what radiographs are taken and when they should be taken.
What Is a Radiograph?
There are various types of radiographs, the most common which is an x-ray allow us to see cavities that would remain undiscovered without radiograph will also determine bone density and level dentists would not be able to see the condition of the roots and nerves of your teeth. If you have had trauma or damage to your teeth a radiograph will be able to determine the extent of the injury.
While radiographs are a necessary part of dentistry, reducing the amount of exposure to radiation is important. Shuayb Dental uses the most advanced technologies available for digital imaging. What does that mean for you? It means that you will be able to cut your radiation exposure rate in half. Traditional style radiographs expose you to radiation for almost twice the length of time.
Digital X rays allow us to see the detail that holding film up to light simply would not. Digital X-rays also reduce radiation exposure by up to 80%. Better quality X-rays, lower radiation exposure.
Dental Cone CT Scans
Dental Cone CT Scans are an advanced type of X-ray that is used in specialized circumstances. A cone CT scan produces a large number of images. An X-ray beam is pointed in the direction of the patient and moved around to create a 3D image. This 3D image will show all bone and soft tissue structures. Cone CT scans are only used in very special circumstances due to the amount of radiation needed to create a 3D image. It is mostly used in specialized procedures for: impacted teeth, dental implants, jaw tumors, identifying bone structure, or reconstructive surgery.
No one likes drilling or needles at the dentist office. Guess what, you may not need either one of those things when you have procedures. You’re probably saying, where has laser dentistry been all of my life? Why haven’t I heard of this before? Laser dentistry is the future of the dental industry. It is at the cutting edge of dental technology and has only recently started to come into dental practices within the United States.
A laser is simply a form of energy in light form. The intensity wavelength of the laser can be adjusted to target gum tissue, enamel, or tooth decay. It can be used for the teeth and gums. Most of the time there is no need for an anesthetic because there is nothing to cause pain. Additionally, it reduces recovery time from all dental procedures when it is used. That is what makes lasers so great for children’s dentistry. No pain, no screaming, no crying, just a simple procedure and they are out the door. Plus they always think it’s cool that a laser is going to be used in their mouth. Wait until they tell their friends at school (it happens, trust us).
Laser dentistry can be used for:
- Teeth Whitening
- Cavity Removal
- Periodontal Gum Disease
- Root Canals
- and more
Dental lasers have been shown to be safe and effective for treating both children and adults.
Shuayb Dental uses intraoral camera technology. What is an intraoral camera? It is a small camera that is only a few millimeters long. It will allow us to be able to see the inside of your mouth in great detail. We can see so much more detail which leaves less room for oversights. Intraoral cameras ensure you are getting the best dental care possible. Intraoral cameras help us to identify issues early so dental issues do not get worse. They also allow you to spend less time in the dental chair. This allows us to better communicate and educate our patients.
What does all of our technology do for you as a patient? It allows you to:
- Save Time
- Save Money
- Recover Faster
- Reduce Pain
- Improve Dental Health
