Here in beautiful, sunny Los Angeles, we are no strangers to advanced technology! We see it on just about every street corner of the city! We know that technology comes with certain headaches, but in general, it can greatly improve our lives!
This is true in all aspects of life, but it is especially true in the dental office. That’s right. We bet you never thought you’d hear that, but it’s true! The dental office is a great place to learn about how technology can benefit you in your everyday life.
Not all dental offices in L.A. are equipped with fantastic advances, but our Westwood Dental Smiles office is ready to treat your smile with top of the line tools that enable us to give you increased comfort, better results, and better information about your smile.
Are you ready to learn more? Let’s get started!
How Does it Benefit You?
We have many, many tools here in our dental office to benefit patients, but we only use those tools when it is beneficial. We aren’t going to force you to undergo a strange procedure just so we can show off our toys! No, we will use these tools when it is appropriate and helpful to do so! Let’s take a look at how these tools will benefit you!
Increased Comfort: Who doesn’t want to be more comfortable at the dentist’s office? It can be a stressful environment, and many patients associate the dental office with pain based on previous experiences. Advanced technology actually allows you to be MORE comfortable! We can eliminate a lot of the physical discomfort you used to feel which will make you much happier to be in our office!
Better Diagnostic Tools: Better technology in the office means better diagnostic tools! We can catch problems faster and be more thorough in our treatment. By catching problems when they are small, we are able to treat them more effectively with less discomfort to you!
Better Overall Results: The bottom line is that better technology means better results for you and your smile! You can actually have the smile of your dreams with very little discomfort or treatment time, which makes you a happy patient!
A Few Specific Examples
Now that you have a better understanding of what technology can do for you, we want to give you a few examples to show you specifically how one tool in the office can change your entire dental experience!
Soprolife Intraoral Camera
Intraoral cameras are a fantastic new way for dentists to see you teeth. We used to have to use the naked eye and feel around with our instruments, but that’s just not the case any longer! With an intraoral camera, we can actually take images of your teeth that you can view in our office. These images will show you exactly what we see, which will help you make better decisions for your care!
The dental office has a reputation for pain. Even the procedure for numbing a patient is considered painful by some, but not any longer! We use an advanced tool called the Wand. This is a device that administers the anesthesia to your mouth without ANY discomfort! Even the numbing process is more comfortable!
It is our intention to use technology to save smiles and to save lives. One tool allows us to do both, and that is the Velscope. This is a state of the art instrument that uses a special light in your mouth to show signs of abnormal cell development, which could be the beginning of oral cancer. If we can catch oral cancer early, you have a great chance of beating it! That’s why we scan all patients during routine appointments, and Velscope makes the entire process easy.
Another fantastic tool we offer is the Diagnodent system. This is a cavity detection system that uses a special light to look for signs of decay. We can see new decay, check that a cavity has been completely filled, and check that old fillings are still holding strong! The process is entirely comfortable, and you end up with healthier teeth!
