State-of-the-Art Dental Technology
Dental technology has evolved by leaps and bounds in the last few years, making procedures that were once difficult and uncomfortable simple and pain-free. At Delaware Smile Center, we want our patients to feel comfortable and happy while they receive fantastic, top-of-the-line dental care.
Our dentists are constantly learning. We take advantage of continuing education and stay on top of current developments and improvements in dental technology and techniques. We have embraced modern technology and use it to help our patients have the very best dental experience possible.
3D Digital Scanning
We are excited to announce the addition of our latest piece of technology, the Trios 3Shape Digital Scanner. With digital scanning our patients can say goodbye to traditional dental molds and hello to 3D technology! A digital scanner is a camera that scans the teeth and gums, creating a 3D image of the mouth. With these digital models, the dentists can fabricate crowns, bridges and other dental appliances without having to take goopy impressions. Digital scanning is safe, quick and most importantly extremely comfortable for the patient!
Dental care providers have been relying on x-rays for decades to help us get a clear picture of what is going on in our patients’ mouths. They help us see inside your teeth and under your gums so we can make sure things are going well or make a diagnosis when necessary.
Traditional film dental x-rays use radiation. While healthcare providers take several precautions to keep your radiation exposure to a minimum, it’s impossible to completely avoid it, and radiation exposure builds up over time. Your safety is important to us, and that’s why we exclusively use digital x-rays, which have been shown to reduce your radiation exposure by 90 percent.
Television and Computers
When your procedure lasts longer than a few minutes, it’s helpful to have something to distract you. We have placed a television in every room for your comfort and convenience. Relax and enjoy your favorite show while we work to give you a healthy and beautiful smile.
We have also placed computer monitors chair-side to help you be a part of your dental team. These monitors allow us to give you a clear image of your mouth and teeth and explain procedures so you can stay informed and educated on your care. Since digital x-rays are instantly viewable on these computer monitors, these two tools work together perfectly to help all of us make the best decisions about your dental care and treatment plan.
State-of-the-Art Dental Chairs
At Delaware Smile Center, even our dental chairs are advanced! They are designed to be luxurious and extra comfortable to make it easier for you to lay back and relax while we are performing your procedure. Our sedation operatories are equipped with special state-of-the-art chairs that have built-in massage and heating features. This is especially helpful if you will be receiving sedation dentistry.
Going to the dentist has a bad rap, and we want to change that. We want you to actually enjoy coming to our office. While modern technology is fantastic and helps us to give you the very best dental care possible, at Delaware Smile Center we also provide caring, compassionate, and gentle care. We love what we do. It’s exciting to see the changes we can create. We take great pride in our work, and nothing makes us happier than when you are happy with your new smile.
