Why Does Your Dentist Need the Latest Technology?

As with any medical professional, feeling confident and comfortable with your dentist is essential. You want to be able to discuss your health issues and know that you’re getting the best care possible. Your relationship with your dentist and your confidence in their expertise are important, certainly, but is it really essential that the dental practice is equipped with the latest technology?

At Chester Family Dentistry in Warren, Ohio, we answer with a resounding yes! For us, it comes down to patient comfort and convenience. Besides, how can we incorporate the latest treatments if we don’t invest in the cutting-edge equipment to properly implement those procedures?

Here’s a glimpse of the latest technology we use at Chester Family Dentistry.

Digital X-rays: Quicker and less radiation

X-rays have always been a great diagnostic tool for dentists, but add in the digital technology and the benefits to both the patient and the dentist increase exponentially.

With digital X-rays, an electronic sensor or phosphor plate records the image, which is transmitted to a computer. The sensor and plate are much more sensitive than traditional film, so the radiation a patient receives in the process is much lower.

Plus, your X-rays can easily be stored and reviewed in the future to track changes to your oral health. X-rays have always been a valuable tool to detect decay, but with digital X-rays, dentists can view the bone below the gum line for procedures like dental implants and root canals.

Same-day Crowns: Time and stress saver

If you’ve ever had a dental crown placed, you know how awkward those couple weeks with the temporary crown can be. Besides, who has the time to make multiple appointments?

With same-day crowns, your new permanent crown is milled right in the office. There’s no need to fear that your temporary crown may fall out, and you don’t have to come back to have it fitted. At Chester Family Dentistry, we respect your time and want to provide you with the highest level of dental care.

Dental Implants: A second chance at a healthy smile

According to the American College of Prosthodontists, 120 million people in the United States are missing at least one tooth, and 36 million of them don’t have any teeth at all. A vast majority of these folks will turn to dentures as their treatment solution, but many people just don’t want to wear dentures or don’t wear them due to embarrassing slipping and sliding issues.

Fortunately, dental implants provide an advanced solution for an increasing number of people. With dental implants, custom-made artificial teeth are surgically anchored into your jawbone. They look and function just like your natural teeth used to.

Imagine biting into a thick, juicy steak or telling that funny story without any worry or embarrassment. Now that’s the kind of advanced technology that restores quality of life.

Other advanced treatments

Chester Family Dentistry also uses tissue fluorescence to aid in the detection of oral cancer, fits adults and teens with clear plastic aligners to straighten their teeth without the hassle of metal braces, and we even provide an intraoral appliance to help patients with sleep apnea.

We believe that staying current in advanced procedures is important and so is properly equipping our practice with the latest technology. Bringing comfort, convenience, and efficiency to everything we do to help our patients get and maintain their oral health is our quintessential goal.

Chester Family Dentistry serves Warren, Ohio, and the surrounding areas in Trumbull County, and welcomes new patients. Book an appointment online or call today.
