Technology innovations shape our modern world, and dentistry is no exception. New technologies are constantly improving in dentistry and orthodontics. Here are just some of the benefits:

  • Newer technologies are often able to get better results, sometimes in less time.
  • Many newer dental technologies are safer and less toxic, such as newer composite fillings instead of traditional fillings that contained mercury.
  • New computer and 3D imaging techniques make it easier to get accurate pictures of the structures of the mouth.
  • Through the use of computer software, we can better analyze problems and plan for treatments.
  • With advanced technologies, patients may be able to experience amazing results with less pain and hassle.
  • Certain technologies like digital impressions are more accurate while being far more convenient (old impressions using molds in the mouth can be messy!).

What Is Digital Imaging Technology in Dentistry?

Digital imaging technology is very helpful in dentistry because of the amount of information it provides. In the past, X-rays were taken using the old-fashioned method. This involved using photographic film or plates that resulted in large pictures that had to be looked at manually. New digital X-rays are not only safer, as they use far less radiation, they give us even more detail.

Digital X-rays are also stored and viewed on a computer easily, which saves a lot of space as well as helps the environment. Using special computer software, we can easily zoom in and highlight areas of the mouth that may need special focus.

Even better, we now have 3D digital images, which give us an even better, more accurate look at what’s going on with the teeth and the entire jaw.

What Are Some Examples of Technology Improvements in Orthodontics?

Orthodontics has really benefited from advances in technology. Orthodontics, as you may know, is all about fixing alignment issues with the teeth and bite. In the past, if you wanted to straighten teeth, you had to use cumbersome metal braces. The size and prominence of braces could be uncomfortable and lead to teasing from other children.

How Have Metal Braces Improved?

Things have changed a lot since the 1970s, including braces. For one thing, kids today aren’t ashamed or embarrassed by their metal braces. This is in no small part due to advances in technology. Today’s metal braces use smaller brackets than braces from the 1970s. The smaller brackets are more attractive as well as more comfortable. Furthermore, modern metal braces offer colorful elastics that enable kids to customize their look. Kids love them!

If that’s not enough, ceramic braces are now available. Ceramic braces use tooth-colored porcelain ceramic instead of metal brackets, as well as clear wires, so you can barely tell someone is wearing braces!

What Are Invisalign® Clear Aligners?

Another important advancement in orthodontics technology is the development of Invisalign® clear aligners. This alternative to braces uses clear plastic trays that fit snugly over teeth to gently move them into the proper position. Invisalign® clear aligners are virtually invisible and are a great option for working adults. To fit Invisalign® clear aligners, we use digital technology to create computerized impressions of your teeth, and then custom trays are made based off of these digital images.
