12 May All The Tools In The World
If you haven’t been in the dentist chair for a while, or read up on new technologies, you might be amazed at what’s happening in the dental world. There has really been a lot of innovation that the average person doesn’t hear about, because most of us don’t have a lot of dental visits within a given year or so.
For customers of any significant age, we’re used to those kinds of old-fashioned dentistry that involve a lot of drilling and groaning. We don’t hear about a lot of the big changes that happen in the industry, but some of them have the power to help us in real, profound ways.
Now, for example, dentists are experimenting with non-drilling cavity filling, and have a lot of diagnostic tools at their disposal like panoramic x-rays. At the same time, those extractions that left gaps in the mouth are being filled with new dental implants that are both more versatile and more functional than your old-fashioned dentures. That’s good news, for so many people who have issues in their dental health that they want to address, maybe things they have been putting off for a while.
However, despite all of that technological innovation, some things stay the same.
New technology doesn’t help a dental patient like a gentle word from an experienced professional dentist. New technology doesn’t magically help your nervous child in the chair as the dentist provides calming and reassuring cues, or take over when the dentist is consulting an aging person on their dental health alternatives and cost.
In fact, part of being a good dentist is meeting people where they are, and explaining their options, so that they feel confident and able to proceed. We believe this is integral to the dental patient’s experience, and that the way that dentists frame things is important.
