Going to the dentist today can be a profoundly different experience than it was decades ago. When it comes to patient experience, safety and the final results, modern dentistry has changed for the better. An obvious trend has to been to “cut back”, not on the quality of care but on the pain, inconvenience, recovery and risk of your dental procedures.
From improved techniques and high-tech diagnostics to better technology and more precise instruments, taking advantage of modern dentistry means less is more.
- Less Pain
- Laser technology, less invasive techniques and comfort injection devices have truly taken the pain out of dental procedures.
- Less Inconvenience
- The goal to provide better convenience to patients has been supported by state-of-the-art dental equipment that can streamline your visit. Soft-tissue lasers to treat gum disease and modern 3D imaging to provide same-day crowns can significantly reduce your time in the dental chair and lessen your inconvenience.
- Less Recovery
- Healing time is another “cut back” that modern dentistry generously provides. Many procedures can be carried out less invasively (such as root canals, dental implants and smile makeovers), which means an easier and quicker patient recovery.
- Less Risk
- With more accurate diagnostic tools and more precise instruments, the risk of failure is greatly reduced in many dental procedures. In addition, low radiation digital imaging and other forms of advanced technology have made dentistry much safer.
- Less Invasive
- From dental fillings to crowns, dentists can now restore your teeth with less loss of healthy tooth structure.
Addressing your smile needs with today’s modern dental technology can truly be a comfortable, convenient and rewarding experience. Modern dentistry eliminates many of the reasons that patients avoid going to the dentist, whether it be fear of pain, a busy schedule or associated risks. At Gilreath Family Dentistry, we are proud to adopt the latest in dental technology for general, cosmetic and restorative services. Improving your smile appearance or restoring its health may be easier than you think!
