Dentistry is an ever-evolving field that adapts to the demands of patients.

FREMONT, CA: Dentistry is a subject that is continually evolving and changing to accommodate patient needs. Dentists are continuously searching for new and developing technology to improve the patient experience. Here are a few of the tools that dental clinics employ to ensure that all of their patients receive world-class care:

VELscope: The VELscope is a particular light that a dentist shines into a patient's mouth to detect any anomalies. During an oral cancer screening, this new sort of technology can successfully see early forms of cancer or sickness.

Digital X-rays: Digital X-rays are quicker and emit less radiation than conventional X-rays. The digital X-ray image of a patient displays on the computer in a matter of seconds. Your dentist can then zoom in on the image to more accurately evaluate and educate the patient about dental health. Digital X-rays are safer for patients since they emit up to 90 percent less radiation than conventional X-rays.

Invisalign: Invisalign is a clear, virtually invisible brace that can be used to straighten teeth gently. They give a practical and comfortable solution to straighten your smile without the discomfort of wearing heavy metal braces. Invisalign aligners are simple to remove for cleaning and do not impose dietary restrictions. They complete the task in less time and with less difficulty.

Laser Dentistry: Lasers are used to increase efficiency and minimize pain in various dental operations, including cavity filling, lowering tooth sensitivity, removing tumors, and teeth whitening. Laser dentistry is quick, painless, and can eradicate any bacteria during the operation to prevent any troubles or issues.

Dental Implants: Dental implants are screw-like replacements for the lost tooth's root. When a patient is missing teeth, implants are used to restore a healthy grin. Implants are helpful because they can replace lost teeth while preserving the patient's natural tooth's feel and appearance.

HealOzone: HealOzone is a quick, painless, and simple solution to eradicate dental decay. HealOzone is effective because of ozone (O3), a common, naturally occurring gas that effectively kills germs and fungi. HealOzone is a fantastic instrument for detecting and eliminating early signs of tooth decay before it advances to a more severe level.

DIAGNOdent: DIAGNOdent is revolutionary, state-of-the-art equipment that dentists use to discover hidden cavities in areas that traditional x-rays cannot locate. It ensures that the mouth has been adequately inspected for early indicators of cavities to prevent patients from incurring further costs if the cavities progress and enlarge.

Intraoral Camera: The intraoral camera is a device dentists use to obtain precise and clear images of difficult-to-see areas within a patient's mouth. The camera also lets dentists display these photos while assessing and educating patients on their dental requirements. This innovative technology enables dentists to do a comprehensive oral examination and better analyze their patients' dental care requirements.
