The Importance of Dental Technology

Do you ever consider the impact dental technology on your oral health? You may think that technology only applies to dentists and dental services, but you probably use dental technology in your everyday life. The many advances that have been made allow dentists to detect and treat problems more quickly, and they help patients take better care of their oral health. Let’s take a look at some dental technology and why these devices are important.

  • Flossing with water is a beneficial innovation. Your toothbrush doesn’t do a good job of removing bacteria between your teeth, and flossing can be ineffective if done incorrectly. Water flossing is a great way to get rid of bacteria and plaque before tartar can form and lead to tooth decay as well as gum disease. Water flossing products with the ADA Seal of Acceptance are recommended by the American Dental Association for removing plaque.
  • Ultrasonic toothbrushes are a technological advancement you may already have in your bathroom. These toothbrushes, which provide frequencies of 50,000 brushes per minute or more, clean through high-frequency vibrations rather than physical movements to remove plaque and debris.
  • Dentists use digital x-rays to diagnose and treat issues. Using digital dental radiographs, dentists can track tooth development and monitor the health of teeth and bones in the mouth.
  • Artificial intelligence has made its way into dentistry. Dentists and hygienists use artificial intelligence-based technology to diagnose and evaluate dental problems. Using an FDA-approved AI device, they can obtain accurate measurements of tooth decay and bone loss, in order to gain a better understanding of what’s happening in your mouth and what needs to be done.
  • A 3D scanner is used for digital impressions. To facilitate the customization of Invisalign aligners, dentists use a 3D scanner to gain a closer look at the oral structures like your mouth, gums, and teeth.
