While the dental industry has been around for years, that doesn’t mean technological advances haven’t helped bring it into the 21st century. If you’re still visiting a dentist that uses the same equipment and techniques people were using a century ago, you’re probably not having an enjoyable experience. That might be an extreme example, but it makes a good point.
In this article, we’re going to look at four different solutions that have taken the dental industry by storm. Some of them could be right for you, so next time you’re at the dentist, ask them about these procedures. If you can’t get them and really want to take your dental care to the next level, you might have to change dentists.
While some of these solutions are for your actual dentist, there are a few that might make your home tooth care easier or more productive. So let’s have a look at them.
T-Scan is a great new piece of equipment designed to improve the way dentists analyze your bite. It’s basically a high-tech tray that’s placed inside the mouth and is connected to a computer. The computer has innovative software that’ll analyze a patient’s bite in real time by sensing pressure on the pad. This presents an image and offer a much better view compared to what dentists used to have to use. The software allows dentists to see if certain teeth are in the right position and evaluate the overall health of someone’s bite.
If you’ve heard of smartwatches and smart ovens, you’re probably not surprised that toothbrushes are next. Kolibree is a high-end and high-tech toothbrush that claims to be the “smartest” on the market. As well as being super-light, Kolibree is tied to a stand-alone app (available on iPhone and Android) that helps you improve your brushing habits so that you can take your dental health to the next level.
Kolibree offers wireless charging and is fully connected to your other devices, allowing you to track, coach and change your brushing habits so that your teeth are in the best condition they can be.
Playbrush is another smart toothbrush that works a bit like Kolibree, but it’s aimed at kids. Playbrush works with an app that helps make brushing your teeth fun. It has different goals and achievements to help motivate kids to keep cleaning their teeth regularly and you can also track progress. Playbrush is a highly recommended tool that can really help entertain your kids while keeping their dental health in good shape.
If you’ve needed braces for a while, you might have been put off by how they appear. Now, you can improve your smile with high-tech clear braces. Invisalign clear braces are some of the best available on the market and could be right for you. Ask your dentist about them next time you visit.
