3 General Dentistry Advances For Royal Oak

Royal Oak residents who have undergone a smile redesign are probably aware of the latest cosmetic dental procedures popular in the Birmingham area. These include metal-free fillings, porcelain veneers, invisible braces, implant-supported dentures, and inlays/onlays.

Today’s Royal Oak dental post focuses on some nifty dentistry advances that are used behind-the-scenes to benefit Royal Oak dentists and dental patients alike.

Digital imaging is not just for Instagram, Tumblr and Pinterest; many cutting-edge Birmingham dental offices use digital X-Rays. Realtime digital images help Birmingham dentists more easily spot and treat oral problems including emerging cavities and bone recession. Digital X-Rays require far less radiation exposure and are easier to store and access.

Pinpoint-precise Diode lasers are used in myriad procedures including crown lengthening, root scaling, biopsies, root canalsteeth whitening, oral lesion removal, and treatment of dental decay. Laser procedures are easier on the patient and require shorter healing times.

CAD (computer-aided design) and CAM (computer-aided manufacturing) are used for many restorative procedures in Royal Oak including in-office inlays/onlays and same-day crowns. Royal Oak dentists who offer dental implants can use CAD/CAM technology in every phase of the dental implant procedure. CAD/CAM is used in Michigan dental laboratories to fabricate crowns, bridges, veneers, and ceramic braces.
