Technology is everywhere. You can’t go out to a restaurant, shopping, or anywhere in public anymore without seeing someone tapping away on their smartphone to the left of you, or sliding their finger across a tablet to the right of you. We entertain and inform ourselves through the use of technological advances. However, there are many other ways that technology improves our modern lives. Evanston dentist, Dr. Brent Engelberg, maintains an office which is fully equipped with the latest advances in cosmetic, restorative, and general dental technology.
Some things just work, but there’s no excuse for a dental office to abhor modern advances. While there might be certain tools which have stood the test of time, improvements within the design, efficiency, and comfort level for the patient make it paramount that dentists keep their offices updated. Part of a dentist maintaining their licensure involves continued education. This is a great chance for Dr. Engelberg and his colleagues to keep up-to-date with their knowledge of advances in the fast moving field of dentistry. Technology travels fast and patients should demand that their medical practitioners from all fields are providing them with the most current procedures and equipment for the best dental care.
Specific Modern Dental Technology
Dr. Engelberg has embraced many newer forms of technology in recent years. Some of these include:
Intraoral cameras – These incredible cameras allow dentists to go further than the naked eye can see in order to thoroughly evaluate early dental issues.
Digital X-rays – Concerned with radiation exposure? Digital x-rays provide high-quality images with markedly less radiation.
DIAGNOdent® – Laser diode based equipment offers an amazing way to detect cavities at the earliest possible stages.
ShadeVision™ – If you find yourself worried that restorative or cosmetic dental procedures will appear obvious because of the more faded color of surrounding natural teeth, ShadeVision technology provides a solution. This system allows us to match the color and shade of you restorative or cosmetic dental work precisely.
For Anxious Patients:
The Wand® – If you are sensitive, this local anesthesia delivery system offers Dr. Engelberg the ability to pin-point a smaller area and provide a computer-regulated flow of anesthetic to reduce swelling and recovery issues. If you need a cavity filled, the Wand will allow you to bypass prolonged numbness when you go back to your life following the procedure.
Oral conscious sedation – If you are extremely nervous about dental visits, you don’t have to worry anymore. We can safely lull you into a state of relaxation with safe and gentle oral conscious sedation, making your dental appointments as pleasant as possible.
