Other Dental Technology & Comforts

Modern dental technologies have enabled better dental care for people. It helps dentists provide precise analysis of their dental condition. These technologies have helped diagnose dental diseases at the earliest, which also helps in planning the patient's treatment effectively. Del Rey Dental is equipped with the latest technologies that enable better treatment for patients.

Digital X-Ray

Digital imaging systems have enabled X-rays to take better impressions of the teeth and mouth. They enable dentists to have a better view of the mouth. X-rays can detect cysts and tumors in the mouth. It also provides a better view of infections in the mouth that cannot be viewed through a standard dental checkup. 

There are various types of digital X-ray systems that are used for different dental conditions. The amount of radiation is minimal during a digital X-ray and does not harm the patients. 

VELscope

VELscope is a wireless handheld device that helps to detect signs and symptoms of abnormalities in the mouth. The device uses natural tissue fluorescence to detect the deformities of the tissues in the mouth. It has a superior blue light that excites the molecules in the oral tissues. The excited tissues emit colors of their own, showing the contrast between the normal and abnormal tissues. It helps to detect the pre-cancerous cells and suspect areas for surgical biopsy. VELscope is a convenient and easy-to-use device that provides quicker results. It is a cost-effective technology that offers expert outcomes for the patients. 

Dental Laser

The use of lasers has helped dentists to provide efficient treatment for patients. A laser is a light-emitting device that is used in multiple dental treatments. It is a safe technology that reduces the chance of infections. Dental lasers come in two types, soft and hard tissue lasers. They help to reshape the gums and remove inflamed gum tissues. The laser also helps to prepare the teeth for treatments like composite bonding. The patient experiences less bleeding and reduced pain when a laser is used for the treatment. It also speeds healing. 

3D Scanning For Crowns And Restorative Dentistry

3D scanners are tools that use lasers or white light to photograph a patient’s mouth and teeth. These images are then combined together in a computer to create a 3D model of your teeth. This can help your dentist plan your restorative treatment more accurately, leading to better results and improved patient satisfaction. In addition to planning your oral health care and treatments, these models can help with patient education as well. They can give you a better picture of your smile, and you can often view them on a screen right in the treatment room at your dental office. Your dentist can then walk you through any issues they see and explain which treatments would be best for addressing the issues.

There are many benefits to using this type of technology for your dental care. It can help improve the accuracy of your treatment plan while also providing increased comfort and efficiency in your treatment process. This technology also helps with patient communication, allowing your dentist to illustrate issues and discuss them with you and your entire family.
