Dental technology includes several innovative tools, equipment, materials, and techniques that provide high-quality dental care. At Brighton Dental in Salt Lake City, Utah, we strive to use the latest up-to-date dental technology to make your treatments as efficient, comfortable, and pleasant as possible. With our diagnostic equipment, we can make a quick, accurate diagnosis and thus effectively plan your treatment.
Our principal objective is to provide you with quality dental care that enhances your smile and overall well-being. We use only the safest equipment and most modern technology that you can trust. Our advanced dental technology includes:
Rotary Endodontics and Electric Handpieces
Rotary endodontics uses electric instruments to perform root canal procedures. These electric tools have a titanium tip, making them much more flexible than the stainless steel manual tools.
Due to the improved flexibility of the titanium, the instrument can reach much further into the curved root canals without causing damage to the passageways. This means that your procedure will go much faster and more effectively. Also, these electric tools work smoother and are much quieter, reducing the stress you might feel if you were hearing the loud grinding that manual tools sometimes make.
An intraoral camera is a handheld device designed like a wand. The small camera at the tip of the device takes multiple in-depth and accurate images of your mouth. These images are used to create a digital impression of your teeth and gums that are mainly helpful for same-day dental crowns.
Digital X-rays are a critical diagnostic tool that helps us better understand the workings of your mouth's insides, more specifically, the teeth, roots, and alveolar bone. A digital X-ray is safer and much faster. If the image comes out hazy, we can instantly retake a new one.
We understand your busy schedules and hence offer same-day dental crowns. We can reshape your tooth, take an impression, and fabricate your restoration all within a single appointment. The data taken with our intraoral wand is instantly transferred to our computer system. We then use CAD/CAM software to fabricate your crown. Next, this information is wired to our milling unit, which transforms a piece of porcelain into your aesthetically pleasing restoration.
DIAGNOdent lasers enable us to effectively identify the presence of decay in the biting surface of a tooth. The DIAGNOdent laser measures laser brightness within the tooth's structure. We can detect the healthy tooth structure and smooth surface dental caries in their initial stage based on these measurements. Prompt detection of tooth decay helps us effectively treat the problem.
