The answer to that question is a resounding yes. Dental technology continues to make great strides, and our Mirrabooka, WA dental surgery incorporates some of the best in leading-edge dentistry to help improve the patient experience.
Here are some examples:
- Tooth-coloured fillings—Not only do these aesthetically pleasing dental fillings no longer mean you will have grey amalgam in your teeth, but they also require less drilling of the tooth in question. This means a better look in the end—and less time in the dental chair for drilling.
- Digital x-rays—Not only are digital radiographs safer because they emit less radiation than their traditional film counterparts, but they are quicker and much more efficient. Because the images are digital, they can be enlarged on a computer screen to get a better view. You will be able to see the image and have a clear understanding of your situation after your dentist explains it to you..
- Panoramic digital OPG x-rays and intra-oral cameras—These are often used in conjunction with digital x-rays to give even more in-depth views of the mouth. This often means dental problems are discovered earlier so that treatment may be less invasive.
- Intra-Oral Trios digital scanner—This equipment eliminates the need for traditional dental impressions and can be used to construct digitally printed models, bruxism splints and CAD-CAM crowns, bridges and implants.
