Advanced Dental Technology
The dentists at our Brooklyn, New York practice offer their patients some of the latest advances in dental technology. The benefits of these advances in dental care are many. In general, the following instruments and systems make it easier for us to diagnose dental problems and treat them.
Digital Imaging and X-Rays
Digital images and digital x-rays provide our dentists will invaluable tools for diagnostics and advanced treatment. Most importantly, though, digital x-rays are safe and more precise than traditional x-rays. In fact, studies have shown that digital x-rays expose patients to 1/16th the radiation of traditional x-rays.
In the past, it was sometimes hard to access and assess the condition of certain parts of the mouth. That is not a problem anymore. Intraoral cameras are tiny cameras (some of them are just millimeters wide) that can be used to examine your teeth, your gums, and various other structures in your mouth. Even more accurate diagnoses and treatments can be performed.
In order to perform a number of different dental treatments, our team is happy to use laser technology rather than traditional equipment. Laser dentistry means diagnosis and proactive dental care. Lasers can be used to locate cavities, help speed up the drying and setting time of dental restorations, whiten the teeth, address problems with the gums and other soft tissues, and so on.
