Dental Technology Q & A

What is dental technology?

Dental technology refers to the computerized devices and machinery available in modern dentistry. At Swinney Morton Dental, gone are the days of uncomfortable dental X-rays and messy impressions. Digital technology is highly accurate and effective at diagnosing and treating a broad range of dental conditions.

Swinney Morton Dental offers several digital devices that can improve your dental experience and provide personalized treatments for your smile.

What are the different types of dental technology?

Swinney Morton Dental offers several modern devices at their office, including:

Digital X-rays

More accurate and much faster than traditional X-rays, digital X-rays also produce about 90% less radiation. Rather than sending your X-rays to several sheets of paper, digital X-rays upload straight to a computer for easy access. Not only are these images clearer than ever before, but the team can also blow them up and zoom in to identify potential dental concerns.

Unlike traditional X-rays, digital scans require no preparation or discomfort. The team can also send your scans straight to another specialty office if needed because they’re digitally stored with your dental records.

CBCT scans

Cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) scans produce 3D images of the internal structures of your mouth. These scans provide a detailed view of your entire mouth for a clear view of your tooth-supporting tissue, bone, nerves, and more.

The team at Swinney Morton Dental commonly uses CBCT scans to plan dental implant placement. A CBCT scan can show the team the best areas to place your implants, which significantly improves your results.

Solea® dental laser

The Solea dental laser makes dental procedures easier than ever before. Laser dentistry allows the team to cut through bone and tissue with precision. This ensures your healthy tissue remains untouched. Laser devices can also speed up healing for an easier recovery after oral surgery.

What are the benefits of dental technology?

Digital X-rays and CBCT scans offer faster, more comfortable results than traditional scans. Benefits of laser dentistry include:

  • Less pain and discomfort
  • Faster recovery times
  • Minimal blood loss
  • Reduced need for anesthesia
  • Preservation of healthy bone and tissue
  • More accurate diagnoses
