General dentistry goes high-tech with these new procedures

Digital Dental Impressions (Itero)

Just like in any industry over the years, a great deal has changed when it comes to general dentistry. Procedures have improved and results are simply better than ever before. Any cosmetic dentist or dental hygienist will tell you just how much things have changed and how we all benefit from it.

General dentistry has changed from just being about fixing a problem to actually including cosmetic changes and improvements which can give you a brighter, whiter and more confident smile.

New high tech general dentistry procedures to hit the market

In Tacoma, Washington especially, general dentists are able to offer patients treatments with the very latest in technologically-advanced equipment and machinery. Improvements in the industry have seen treatments previously considered impossible, become possible.

At Distinctive Dentistry we have access to multiple instruments that aide in providing high-tech care. We have an

  • Intra-Oral camera that allows us to quickly take accurate photos; not only does this aide in dental care, it allows YOU to see what’s in YOUR mouth on the computer screen.
  • The VelScope is a specific type of light that scans your gums, tongue, palate and other tissues for oral cancer. Early detection of oral cancer can help with diagnosis and treatment outcomes.
  • Digital radiographs and panoramic radiography result in faster x-rays and significantly decrease the amount of radiation, making them the safest they have been in years.
  • An ultrasonic scaler can be used to help remove pesky, stubborn tartar that is present above and below the gumline in an efficient manner.

All of these units allow us to provide our services with precision and accuracy which is something the dental industry has been looking for, for many years. They also can help to improve your oral and overall health.
