Our dental team is always updating our practice with the most innovative dental treatments available. We know that modern dental technology makes treatment faster, more comfortable, and easier for our patients. Let’s take a look at some of the ways that our Tinley Park dentists utilize state-of-the-art dental tools and technologies.
There are several new technologies that allow our dental team to better detect, and thus treat, emerging dental problems. For example, digital X-rays deliver superior results compared to traditional X-rays. These digital images not only offer clear images for our dental team to analyze, but they are also safer for the patient, since they emit 85% less radiation than conventional X-ray technology. Intra-oral cameras also improve our capability to assess hard-to-reach places in your mouth.
There are a number of dental tools that make dental treatment more comfortable than ever before! The anesthetic wand allows our dentist to administer localized sedation painlessly—without the dreaded “pinch” of the needle. With ultrasonic cleaning technology we can also clear dental plaque using ultrasonic vibrations, rather than scraping plaque away with a metal instrument. Many patients prefer this type of dental cleaning to traditional methods.
Improved aesthetic results
Innovative technology has also greatly improved the visual results that our dental team can help you achieve. Thanks to laser dentistry, for example, our dental team can now easily remove and shape excess gum tissue—making your smile appear perfected and balanced. State-of-the-art dental implants provide the most realistic looking and feeling replacement teeth available to date.
