Shuayb Dental 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.
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of oversights or misdiagnosis simply because they are not able to obtain all the necessary information due to their outdated equipment.
No, in fact, it’s quite the opposite. Our technologically advanced equipment is able to see the full extent of your dental needs. Therefore, we are able to accurately diagnose the full extent of your dental issues. Inaccurate diagnosis is one of primary reasons patients will have high dental bills. Even if they are able to correctly diagnose the problem, dental practices that do not invest in state of the art equipment will not be able know the true extent of the issue until they start the procedure. This can lead them to be poorly equipped to handle the dental procedure. Additionally it can lead to poor time management which means they will not be able to effectively manage their patient schedule.
The proper equipment such as Intraoral cameras and digital imaging allow 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.
Shuayb Dental uses high powered microscopes. These high powered microscopes allow us to make dental restorations with precision. No one could replicate a restoration with the same level of precision without a high powered microscope. The naked eye just does not have the ability to see the incredible detail that is needed to perform a dental restoration with laser like precision. Our dentists are able to work with a level of precision that is unparalleled by those who do not have similar equipment.
We all know the sound people associate with a dentist office. Just ask anyone what a dentist office sounds like and they will make the horrendous whining sound of a drill. No one likes the sound of those drills, even dentists. Our dental practice almost exclusively uses electric drills and not air powered drills. The noise you associate with a dental office is an air powered drill. Air powered drills are not able to rotate in a consistent and smooth nature.
Precision is imperative when we are performing procedures such as a veneer, crown or filling. Consistent rotation and stability in a drill allows us to provide you with a better overall experience. Using the electric drills reduces the high pitch drilling noise we all dislike so much. There is also less discomfort for you because there is less vibration.
The dentists in 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.
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 are an advanced type of X-ray that are 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 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:
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. We can locate areas of concern quickly without having to dig through your mouth to find them.
