Life is busy. Whether you are a parent whose time is full of activities related to your kids, or you are a busy professional who doesn’t seem to have a moment to spare, your full schedule might make it difficult for you to keep up with your dental appointments. But there is good news! When you visit a state-of-the-art dentist in Frisco, you can expect to spend less time in the treatment chair and more time focusing on what matters most. Let’s talk about how modern technology makes oral healthcare as efficient as possible.
Quicker Dental Impressions
A manual dental impression can eat up a lot of time. First, the impression material has to be prepared and inserted into the impression tray. Then, you have to bite down and keep perfectly still while the impression sets. If you accidentally move your teeth, you have to start all over!
Digital impressions are much faster. Your dentist simply moves a small wand around your mouth (which can take less than a minute, depending on how much of your mouth is being scanned). It captures thousands of images of your teeth, which then get assembled into a three-dimensional representation of them.
Accurate Treatment Planning
If you must undergo a relatively complex dental procedure, your dentist will have to spend some time planning the details of your treatment. In some practices, this means that you will have to visit another office to get a CBCT scan taken (a CBCT scanner is basically a special type of X-Ray machine that provides highly detailed, three-dimensional images).
Your treatment planning process will be quicker if you visit a dentist who has an in-house CBCT scanner. Once you are positioned in the machine, the scan may take less than a minute, and your dentist will be able to review the images right away.
When you undergo a complex dental procedure, you can expect to have to take some time to recover. Modern technology can shorten your recovery time in a few different ways:
- Lower risk of complications. Accurate treatment planning with the help of a CBCT minimizes the risk of human error. Additionally, if your dentist in Frisco uses a soft tissue laser, it will kill bacteria and keep bleeding to a minimum, both of which facilitate a quick recovery.
- No sutures needed in some cases. A soft tissue laser usually eliminates the need for sutures, which means you won’t have to spend time in the treatment chair while your dentist carefully removes stitches.
It’s understandable if you are crunched for time — but you don’t have to worry about dental care intruding too much into your schedule. Thanks to advanced technology, treatment is faster and more efficient than ever!
