Keeping up with your dental health is an important part of staying fit and strong. There are many ordinary, everyday things you can do to maintain strong teeth and immaculate gums. Brushing, flossing, and rinsing with mouthwash several times a day are a few such activities. Going for a regular check-up and cleaning are also important.

dentist-fort pierceDental technology has advanced quite a lot in the last couple of decades. The machines used to scan your oral area and provide detailed images of it now incorporate cutting-edge technology. The use of dental x-rays, for example, is an essential part of analysis and diagnosis. These days your dentist may be able to use dental radiography to conduct his or her examination, digital x-rays.

The old way of developing the x-rays in a separate room and the waiting required for that process to go through is over. Digital technology allows practitioners to capture the image of your teeth, mouth, and gums instantly. The image is sent to a computer and displayed on a high-grade screen. Your dentist can print a copy for you or send you a copy of the image through email.

Power whitening is another advance in dental medicine. It allows your dentist to whiten your teeth in about two hours by using a concentrated whitening agent. If you do not care for bleaching trays, this method of teeth whitening may be best suited for you.

In the realm of cosmetic dentistry, cosmetic imaging is the latest thing. A Dental Imaging System gives your dentist the means to photograph your teeth as you smile. Your smile can be viewed on a monitor in real time. Working with your dentist, you can make certain alterations to your teeth on the monitor. Choosing the color, length, shape, and proportions of your teeth before you undergo cosmetic surgery will give you a clear idea of what your smile will look like afterward.

dentist-port-st-lucieAir abrasion is now being used by many dental hygienists. It is a procedure whereby dentists can remove decay without the use of a drill. A small device is used to emit tiny particles into your mouth. These particles break up the decay, and its fragments are sucked up with a tiny hose. It makes for a less painful and uncomfortable teeth cleaning session.

Not every dental office has these new technologies, but soon all of them will. These devices have been proven to work well and they are becoming more common in dental clinics across the country.
