04 Apr Technology is Improving Dental Health

Soon, your dentist might not have to work quite so hard. Technological change is coming to the dental industry and promises greatly improved oral health care for people who take advantage.

Key Takeaways:

-Smart toothbrushes are being developed which will help people (and children in particular) better care for their smile by incorporating games and highly accurate feedback data to encourage more effective brushing.

-Lasers are starting to be used to take care of many oral health procedures, including gum disease care and teeth whitening.

-Special cameras better suited to taking pictures of your teeth inside your mouth will be used to create highly accurate reference images for health care providers, making it possible for your dentist to offer you extremely effective customized care.

“Today’s patient is exposed to advanced technology every day and expects to find the same high-tech welcoming environment at the dental office.”
