Fluorescent technology is commonly used to provide bright, efficient, and uniform lighting for dental staff and patients. Fluorescent bulbs are preferred over traditional incandescent bulbs because they produce less heat, reducing the risk of patient discomfort during long dental procedures. Additionally, fluorescent technology provides a color rendering index (CRI) closer to natural sunlight, allowing dental practitioners to assess the color of teeth and oral tissues accurately. This technology also enables dentists to easily identify cavities, stains, and other dental issues, leading to better diagnosis and treatment. Fluorescent technology ensures a safe and comfortable environment for dental practitioners and patients in dental offices.
An intraoral scanner is a device used in dentistry to create a digital 3D model of a patient’s teeth and gums. The Scanner uses a small wand or camera placed in the patient’s mouth to capture images of their teeth and gums from various angles. The images from Scanner are combined to create a digital model used to design and fabricate restorations such as crowns, bridges, and aligners. Intraoral scanners are faster, more accurate, and more comfortable for patients than traditional dental impression methods, and they also eliminate the need for messy impression materials. Intraoral Scanner has revolutionized how dental restorations are designed and produced, allowing for more precise and efficient patient treatment.
Diagnodent is a dental diagnostic tool used to detect early-stage dental caries (tooth decay) that is not visible to the naked eye or easily detected by traditional diagnostic methods. This technology uses a laser to scan the teeth and measure the fluorescence emitted from the tooth structure. Healthy tooth structure emits little fluorescence, while decayed tooth structure emits a higher level of fluorescence. The Diagnodent device then displays a numerical reading, indicating the severity of the decay. Early detection of tooth decay using Diagnodent allows dental practitioners to treat the decayed area with minimally invasive techniques, such as sealants or fluoride treatments before the decay progresses and requires more extensive treatment. Diagnodent is a valuable tool for dental practitioners to accurately diagnose and treat tooth decay in its early stages, leading to better oral health outcomes for patients.
3D PRINTING FOR SURGICAL GUIDES
At Lakeside Dental Solutions, 3D printing technology creates customized surgical guides for dental implant procedures. These surgical guides use digital impressions of a patient’s teeth and 3D modeling software, allowing for precise implant placement planning. With 3D printing technology, we can produce accurate and patient-specific surgical guides quickly and efficiently, reducing complications during the procedure and improving patient outcomes. This technology also allows for easier communication between practitioners and dental laboratories, improving collaboration and faster turnaround times for surgical guides. Overall, using 3D printing for surgical guides enables us to provide high-quality care and improves the accuracy and success of dental implant procedures for our patients.
Laser technology is widely used for various procedures, including soft tissue surgeries, cavity preparations, and teeth whitening. Lasers offer several benefits, such as reduced bleeding, decreased need for anesthesia, and faster healing times. Additionally, lasers provide greater precision and accuracy during procedures, leading to better clinical outcomes. Laser technology is also a popular choice for patients who may have dental anxiety or fear of traditional dental instruments, as lasers provide a more comfortable and minimally invasive treatment option. Laser technology has become essential, allowing for safer, more efficient, and more comfortable dental procedures for patients.
Biostimulation is a dental treatment modality that uses low-level laser therapy (LLLT) to promote tissue healing and reduce inflammation. Biostimulation is commonly used to treat conditions such as temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders, periodontal disease, and post-operative pain. LLLT stimulates the body’s natural healing processes by increasing blood flow and cellular energy production. Biostimulation leads to faster tissue repair and reduced inflammation, improving patient outcomes. Biostimulation is a non-invasive and painless treatment option used alone or with other dental treatments. Its ability to accelerate healing and reduce post-operative discomfort makes it an invaluable tool for dental practitioners to provide high-quality patient care.
3D CONE BEAM IMAGING
It is an advanced diagnostic imaging technique used in dentistry to provide a 3D image of a patient’s teeth, jaw, and surrounding structures. The technology uses a cone-shaped X-ray beam to capture high-resolution images, which can be viewed from multiple angles and manipulated digitally to provide a comprehensive view of the patient’s oral anatomy. 3D Cone Beam Imaging is particularly useful in planning and evaluating dental implant placement, identifying and diagnosing TMJ disorders, and evaluating impacted teeth. This technology offers numerous advantages over traditional 2D X-rays, including reduced radiation exposure, improved accuracy, and enhanced visualization of anatomical structures. As a result, 3D Cone Beam Imaging has become an essential tool for dental professionals in providing optimal patient care.
