A Growing Trend: Whole Body Dentistry
In recent years, there has been a growing awareness of the link between oral health and overall health. As a result, dentists are now looking at the whole body when treating dental problems, focusing not only on the teeth and gums but also on the patient’s overall health and well-being.
This approach recognizes that the health of the mouth is connected to the health of the body and that dental problems can have far-reaching effects on a patient’s overall health.
For example, there is a strong link between gum disease and cardiovascular disease. Studies have shown that people with gum disease are at a higher risk of developing heart disease than people with healthy gums. This is because gum disease causes inflammation in the body, which can lead to the development of plaques in the arteries.
Many dentists are also looking at the link between oral health and diabetes. People with diabetes are at a higher risk of developing gum disease, and gum disease can make it more difficult to control blood sugar levels.
By taking this ‘whole-body’ approach to dental care, dentists can help their patients achieve better overall health. This approach involves not only treating dental problems but also educating patients on how to maintain good oral hygiene and make lifestyle changes that promote overall health.
This new approach has also led to the development of new dental technologies that are changing the face of dentistry rapidly.
Over the last ten years, there have been significant advancements in dental technology. Here are some of the most notable innovations:
Digital impressions have revolutionized the way dentists take impressions of the teeth. This technology uses a handheld wand to scan the patient’s teeth, eliminating the need for messy and uncomfortable traditional impressions.
Intra-oral cameras are small cameras that can be inserted into the mouth to provide dentists with a close-up view of the teeth and gums. This technology allows dentists to detect dental problems early and provide more accurate diagnoses.
3D printing has revolutionized the dental industry by allowing dentists to create custom dental restorations, such as crowns and bridges, in-house. This technology has reduced the turnaround time for dental restorations and has made dental treatment more efficient.
Laser dentistry uses lasers to perform dental procedures, such as gum surgery and cavity removal. This technology is less invasive and more precise than traditional dental tools, resulting in less pain and faster healing times.
Cone Beam CT Scans
Cone beam CT scans provide dentists with 3D images of the teeth, jawbone, and soft tissues. This technology allows dentists to plan more accurate and precise dental procedures, such as dental implant placement.
Teledentistry uses technology, such as video conferencing and digital images, to provide remote dental consultations and treatment. This technology has made dental care more accessible, particularly for patients who live in remote areas or have mobility issues.
Dental implants offer a permanent and natural-looking solution for missing teeth. They can improve chewing ability, speech, and self-confidence while preventing bone loss and preserving the surrounding teeth.
Clear aligners (Invisalign) offer a discreet and convenient solution for correcting misaligned teeth. They are comfortable to wear and can improve oral hygiene while providing a straighter and more confident smile.
These new dental technologies have improved dental care in many ways. They have made dental treatment more efficient, precise, and comfortable for patients. They have also allowed dentists to provide more accurate diagnoses and plan more effective treatment, making dental care more efficient, precise, and comfortable for patients.
