5 Ways Modern Dental Technology Has Evolved

Luckily for all of us, modern dental technology has evolved to make treatment faster, more comfortable, and more effective than ever before. Dr. Giovannini and our team have come up with the following five ways modern dental technology makes your visit to Michael Giovannini DDS, Inc., a breeze.

1. Intraoral Camera

Gone are the days of using only lights and mirrors to try to show patients a particular issue with their teeth. Our office uses an intraoral camera in each of our treatment rooms that sends a video feed to the TVs. This gives you an idea of exactly what Dr. Giovannini is talking about in real time. Our patients often comment that they have a much better understanding of their oral health after seeing the intraoral camera video feed!

2. Sedation Dentistry

In the past, patients who experience dental anxiety would avoid visiting the dentist and delay necessary treatment. Now, our office is proud to offer multiple sedation options that can help you feel comfortable and relaxed as we care for your teeth. We offer both nitrous oxide (laughing gas) and oral conscious sedation for patients with severe dental anxiety.

3. Digital Dental X-Rays

Sometimes, X-rays are necessary to spot any issues with the health and development of your teeth that are not visible to the naked eye. We use digital dental X-rays that emit 90% less radiation than traditional X-rays.

4. Teeth Whitening Options

Modern teeth whitening technology has improved to give patients different options when it comes to getting that bright white smile you’ve always wanted. Our office offers custom trays, KoR deep bleaching, one-size trays, and one-visit whitening.

5. Sleep Apnea Appliances

As we gain a better understanding of the factors that cause sleep apnea and its effects on breathing while sleeping, heavy snoring, and feeling tired and groggy throughout the day, new technology allows us to create more effective sleep apnea appliances that can restore a good night’s sleep.
