Over the years in dentistry, I've stayed abreast of the newer technologies and such and bringing that into the office. With digital X-rays, that's been a significant improvement for us. With use of a laser, which has actually gone cordless now, allows us to make some modifications that are needed to the area. We're able to utilize a CAD/CAM system for creating crowns in the office at a single visit, which is a blessing for some of our patients who just want to come in for that one visit and not have to return.
Other technologies that we've utilized, something that's even been around for years but yet it's had a resurgence, it's called air abrasion. What that is is we use a fine powder to clean out a tooth so it's much more conservative. With our newer materials of white fillings and bonding as opposed to the former silver fillings of the past, that really works well with our patients.
So again, by using the high-tech equipment that's now available to us, we're able to reduce the amount of time that the patient is in the chair. We're able to have less number of visits and certainly leaning more and more towards a pain-free environment.
