The world of dentistry continues to advance at a rapid pace. If you have visited your dentist lately, you have probably noticed some things that make your visit more comfortable. Offices are now equipped so you can watch TV or listen to music while receiving treatment. At The Gentle Art of Dentistry in Houston TX, we combine this kind of relaxed atmosphere with sedation dentistry, and a host of other advanced services, in order too keep you at-ease during your visit.
What may not be as obvious are the advances in techniques, tools, and materials. Most top dentists are now using digital computer imaging, which is safer than traditional x-rays. Our technicians can store, retrieve, and transmit digital images much easier than was possible with traditional x-ray film.
The use of lasers has also changed the face of dentistry. Laser surgery requires less anesthesia, minimizes swelling, and protects surrounding tissue. General dentists use lasers for detecting and treating cavities, and dental technicians use them for the curing of restorative materials.
Another exciting development in cosmetic dentistry is CAD-CAM technology, which allows cosmetic dentists to perform restorations in a single visit. The types of procedures that can be completed in one visit include: crowns, fillings, and porcelain veneers.
