How Up to Date is Your Technology?
How Up to Date is Your Technology?
Are you looking for a new dentist to look after you and your family? In this 10-part series of Interview Questions for Your New Dentist, we will go through the things you should be asking your new dentist before going ahead with them.

In today’s video, we will go through the question: How up to date is your technology?

Technology is an important part of today’s dentistry. Is the dentist equipped with the latest in dental technology? Here are some questions to ask:

Do They Have Digital X-Ray?

Digital x-rays use less radiation and chemical than film. They are easier to read and the ability to manipulate contrast makes diagnosis more accurate. This equipment can be expensive, but you are worth it.

Do They Have EMS Airflow System?

The EMS Airflow system is an advanced piece of equipment to clean patients teeth. It is a lot more gentle and thorough than the traditional Ultrasonic vibrating instruments or the old-fashioned hand scraping. They can remove heavy stains (like tobacco and coffee) from the tooth in minutes. Also, you can adjust the temperature of the water, which is great for sensitive teeth. In addition, it can treat periodontal disease and it is also the go-to system to clean dental implants.

Do They Have CEREC?

For many dentists, this is the information they don’t want you to have. The CEREC system lets your dentist provide a ceramic crown, onlay or veneer in only one visit. The use of CEREC can conserve the tooth structure and permits the dentist to seal the tooth in one appointment. CEREC means no gagging on impressions or moulds, fewer injections, less drilling and no annoying temporaries for weeks.

Here at Dental House Group, we have all the above and much much more… As a matter of fact, in addition to what I’ve mentioned, we have also recently invested in an iTero technology to service our Invisalign patients even better. This iTero can produce 3D simulation of our patient’s treatment more accurately, giving our patient a clear concise 3D view of how their Invisalign progress will look over the course of their treatment.

I hope you found this video useful.

If you like what you see, and is looking for a new dentist to look after you and your family, all our dentists and therapists here at Dental House are very gentle and compassionate. We would love to look after you. Simply direct message us on social media, call us on 1800GENTLE, or fill in the enquiry form on our website, and we will be in touch.

See you in the next video!
