5. Intra-Oral Camera
One of the main complaints of dental patients is having to sit in the dentist’s chair with their mouths open uncomfortably wide. With the use of new technology such as an intra-oral camera, this discomfort will be a thing of the past. It allows the dentist to look inside the patient's mouth using a dental mirror with a camera on it. The dentist can see the images taken by the camera on a screen outside of the patient's mouth without discomfort.
This list is only the tip of the iceberg, as dental technology is constantly evolving. As new patient care needs are discovered, dental innovations are poised to completely revolutionize the world of dentistry and the way we look at oral health.
