Your teeth play many roles beyond the ability to eat comfortably. They are involved in how your face is shaped, your ability to speak clearly, and even affect how others perceive you. A steady routine of oral health hygiene that includes brushing, flossing, and using mouthwash help preserve your smile. If tooth decay has set in, you’ll begin seeing more health problems related to your teeth. Visiting your dentist a minimum of twice a year can help offset the advance of decay and repair damage where it occurs.

How Dental Tools Contribute To Your Oral Health

Over the years, many dental tools have been introduced into the industry to help preserve and restore oral health. These tools can address dental concerns effectively and many innovative treatment plans. The most common dental tools in use today include:

  • Digital Scanner – For many years, viewing the oral cavity required holding a light in one hand and a mirror in the other. This process meant that it was easy for your dentist to miss specific details and difficult for them to show you what they were seeing. The use of intraoral scanners has changed all that. They can now provide you with a picture-perfect view of your oral cavity in 3D. These scanners allow them to show you the problems they see that need addressing and develop plans more effectively.
  • Laser Dentistry – The development of the laser dental drill has done more to revolutionize the dental industry than almost any other invention. It replaces the noisy rotary drill with a nearly silent beam of light. Gone are the high-pitched whine, painful procedures, and imprecise work of the rotary drill. Now dental “drilling” is done nearly silently. It has also replaced the scalpel in specific dental procedures such as gingival sculpting and decay removal.
  • Digital X-Rays – Digital X-Rays are to imaging technology what the intraoral scanner is to the mirror and hand-held light. These new x-rays use a fraction of the radiation of previous approaches and produce precision images in stunning 3D. These images can’t get lost like the old x-ray films could and can be transferred to other specialists or dental offices in an instant.
  • Digital Smile Design – Gone are the days when deciding on specific cosmetic treatments involved a lot of guesswork about the results. Instead, your dentist can use a digital smile design to reveal the results of your procedure. It also lets you communicate what you hope to get out of the procedure.

These tools are the ones most frequently used to improve the way that treatment planning and execution occur. Together the tools and plans can restore your smile, preserve it against decay, and maintain your inner beauty.
