While Elon Musk dreams of space tourism, and Samsung and Huawei are just ushering in the era of flexible displays, the future in dentistry has already arrived. Thanks to progress, the absence of a part or a whole tooth, any aesthetic and functional defects have ceased to be a problem. In modern dental centers, they do not just have no difficulty in eliminating such precedents, dentists eliminate them very quickly. If you remember the old drills and the bitter taste of anesthesia - read what technologies the clinics use in their work now!

Laser technology

The equipment has nothing to do with Jedi swords, although it can be used to accomplish equally great things. The Fotona Light Walker Erbium and Neodymium Laser can:

  • remove soft and hard tissue while numbing the treated area;
  • treat snoring, caries, periodontitis and periodontal disease, endodontic ailments;
  • perform enamel-friendly whitening.

It's easier to name what is not done with a laser. He is really able to quickly, painlessly and safely get rid of most problems with teeth and gums, significantly reducing the time of manipulation and the recovery period.

Computer anesthesia

The transition from Dr. Luer's syringe to disposable modifications with needles of different diameters, and then to carpool variations took more than a decade, but progress did not stop there. The advanced computer technologies used today allow:

  • inject anesthetics at the desired rate;
  • control the piston pressure;
  • control doses.

Thanks to this, the patient does not feel anything at all during the manipulations, and after their completion there are no unpleasant sensations. Computer anesthesia also left the unchanging feeling of numbness in the past. 

CEREC

This is a set of equipment designed for aesthetic and functional restoration. With it you can:

  • scan your mouth;
  • create a 3D model of the jaw and imperfections;
  • make a crown, abutment, veneer, inlay or other necessary element with an accuracy of 1 micron.

The system has a powerful computing base capable of performing complex calculations and performing perfectly accurate shades. Integrates with a 3D printer. One of the key advantages of CEREC is its impressive operating speed. The equipment allows you to make a restoration in 10-15 minutes, which means that in an hour you will leave the clinic with a perfect smile. 

Diagnostics and treatment under a microscope

More recently, dentists had to act based on X-rays, hands-on experience and their own instincts. As you can imagine, these are not the most perfect instruments, so the diagnoses were not always accurate, and the surgical and therapeutic manipulations were not the most perfect. With the advent of microscopes, everything changed. With his help:

  • you can conduct a thorough examination and accurately diagnose the disease;
  • to cure even complex cases of caries;
  • to do microsurgical operations with soft tissues;
  • available aesthetic prosthetics, a number of other manipulations.

The microscope takes diagnostic, therapeutic and surgical procedures to a qualitatively new level.

2D and 3D X-ray diagnostics

Computed tomography, cephalography, orthopantomogram, radiovisiography allow the doctor to see the real extent of the problem and accurately assess its nature. Moreover, with the help of such equipment, surgical templates are created, thanks to which preoperative planning and modeling are carried out, the accuracy of surgical, therapeutic and other dental manipulations is maximized. Here are just some of the advantages of the equipment:

  • high information content;
  • the ability to visualize in 3D.

2D and 3D X-ray diagnostics literally “opened the eyes” of dentists. Its appearance in dental practice significantly increased the effectiveness of treatment, prosthetics, implantation and all types of plastic surgery.

Transparent aligners to correct bite and curvature of teeth

Even those who dream of straight teeth all their adult life are not always ready to walk for a year and a half with a bracket system in their mouth for this. Therefore, the Invisalign aligners appeared: they allow you to solve the issue of aesthetics and get the desired result in the form of even teeth in a short time. They are worn by stars, politicians, public figures, other successful people who are always in sight, but aligners are available to everyone.

They are polymer mouthguards that are made individually. Each is worn for an average of two weeks. The number of pieces in the set is determined by the doctor. The aligners are completely transparent and absolutely not felt on the teeth. They do not require complicated maintenance, they can be removed / put on without assistance in a second. 3D modeling allows you to see the result of using aligners even before the start of the correction process. And most importantly, the use of Invisalign caps allows dentists to adjust the timing of correction and give a five-year guarantee on the result, which is unthinkable when using braces.
