A technology that is up to the minute, facilitating the dentists in the process of fabricating and dental restoration work is known as CEREC. This technology utilizes digital camera images with the help of a special camera. This image is transformed into a 3dimentional model of the tooth through computerization. This model works as a template or base for restoration process to continue. Based on this new model the actual restoration work is done. This modern CEREC technology helps bring down the waiting time of the client along with lowering the expenses of both the dentist as well as the patient and most importantly it also reduces the use of anesthesia.
An innovative way of keeping the patients occupied through their dental appointment is by making them watch movies. The DVD is extremely useful in distracting the patient’s attention from the dental work. This also has another advantage, nervous and over-anxious patients too are relaxed with the use of DVD during dental procedure.
The digital X-Rays are very useful in replacing the older X-Ray machines as they are more accurate and give a detailed view. These are also very environment friendly in comparison to the old x-ray images. There is a big difference between the two outputs.
