19 Dec Technology and Holistic Dentistry: Things to Expect
Technology is an integral part of our lives. So it’s no surprise that it also plays a significant role in dentistry. As a holistic dental practice, Kozlow and Rowell routinely implements technology that ensures the safest evaluation and treatment possible. Our team leverages the very latest technological advances in caring for our patients and protecting their oral health.
Technology helps dentists provide patients with the most advanced care. It also provides less invasive and shortened treatments, so patients feel comfortable and pain-free as possible. Here are some ways technology is used in holistic dentistry. And if you’re visiting our holistic dentistry office, here’s some tech you can expect to see.
Overall Dentist Technology
In our office, we tap into the latest innovations, software solutions, and technologically advanced tools for nearly everything we do for our patients. Here are just a few ways these advanced methods can be helpful to you as a patient.
We can keep patients’ information up-to-date and completely private using secure electronic record-keeping. Additionally, it also allows ease of transferring information during referrals for specialized care.
Technology is used to clean patients’ teeth quickly and effectively, taking into consideration their health and level of comfort. Our tools are designed to alleviate pain and anxiety in everything from routine cleanings to more complex preventive procedures.
Diagnosis & Imaging
Technology helps us discover and diagnose oral health concerns safely. For example, CariVu uses light technology, known as transillumination, to detect hidden cavities. Our digital imaging techniques and equipment reduce and often eliminate the need for traditional x-rays responsible for unnecessary radiation exposure.
Using Technology for Holistic Dentistry
At Kozlow and Rowell, we work with tools that benefit our patient’s overall well-being. Our technology supports our holistic approach to dental care, regardless of what solutions you might be interested in exploring.
An ozone generator is a strong, natural, and anti-bacterial agent which eradicates bad bacteria. Imagine removing harmful bacteria that cause gum disease, tooth decay, or infections without painful scraping tools.
CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramic)
CEREC refers to dental crowns that are non-toxic, BPA-free, and made from ceramic materials. Additionally, this is a same-day treatment. Patients don’t need to return, thanks to the innovation that shortens the treatment’s time frame.
An electric handpiece is a tool used fairly regularly, as it’s an excellent piece of technology for removing plaque and tartar. This tool works quickly and thoroughly for an effective result.
