Laser for Detecting Cavities
Usually, dentists use a device called an explorer to see if there are cavities in the patient’s teeth. This tool is used by alternately placing it on your teeth during a check-up. If the tool is stuck in one of your teeth, the dentist will look closely at that part of the tooth to see if there are signs of cavities.
Computer-Assisted Design Technology
This tool serves to speed up the process of making and installing dentures. Usually, if a patient needs dentures, the dentist will have to make an impression of your teeth and then provide temporary dentures. After waiting some time, then you can get permanent dentures. With this CAD / CAM technology, your teeth can be punctured to make room for dentures and photographed directly by a computer.
Treatment For Broken Teeth
If your teeth are broken, nowadays technology can make your teeth repaired while still looking natural compared to previous technologies. Currently, the part of the tooth that is broken is covered with resin, which looks shinier and is more durable than the material used to repair the previous broken tooth. Usually, dentists will put resin on the broken tooth to glue and repair the broken tooth. Because the color of the resin has a wide range, this resin can blend and look similar to the natural color of the teeth.
