Virtual Reality

The drop in alleged pain makes it easier for dentists to diagnose and treat patients comfortably. VR has become supportive in training students, especially in developing issues that require specialization.

Intraoral Cameras Versus Traditional Tiny Round Mirrors

Intraoral devices scan the inside of the mouth to create an instant digital imprint. They have a magnifying effect for easy visibility. These cameras can magnify the size of your tooth to the size of your head when viewing on the screen. With such enlarged images it is almost impossible to miss a thing. Intraoral cameras provide dentists with a platform to share the images with patients for them to better understand the state of their oral condition. Crowns and bridges also become a seamless treatment procedure. The images from intraoral cameras can be transferred to lab technicians to enable them to tailor make bridges and crowns customized to your natural teeth.
