Dakota Dental stays up-to-date on the latest dental advancements and technologies to ensure patients have healthy teeth.
Online PR News – 22-November-2015 – Apple Valley, MN, USA – When it comes to dental work, it's essential to keep up with the latest technologies. From cosmetic dentistry to general dental services, Dakota Dental is committed to treating patients with the newest and best practices in the industry to ensure good oral health.
Dental procedures have been documented since the time of the early Egyptians, when Aristotle and Hippocrates wrote about treating tooth decay and using wires to stabilize loose teeth. The field of dentistry has certainly come a long way over the centuries, and it is constantly evolving and expanding.
Dakota Dental uses digital x-rays, which are faster and contain less radiation than traditional x-rays. Not only is there less radiation, but dentists can zoom in for even more detail. Another advancement is with dental implants, which are screw-replacements for the root portion of missing teeth. These implants are used for patients with missing teeth that give the look and feel of a natural tooth.
Fillings have also come a long way over the years. In addition to the traditional amalgam fillings, Dakota Dental also offers tooth colored fillings to aesthetically blend in with patients' teeth.
In terms of orthodontics, Invisalign braces are a practically invisible way to fix crooked teeth. Invisalign works by using a series of clear, removable, custom shaped aligners, which slowly straighten teeth. Compared to braces, the smooth aligners are more comfortable, faster, and invisible. Dakota Dental is a certified Invisalign provider, and provides a free consultation for patients considering if Invisalign is right for them.
Another cosmetic dental advancement is teeth whitening, which can lift off years of stains for a bright, white smile. Dakota Dental offers several solutions to whiten teeth, and walk patients through a custom teeth whitening plan that's best for them.
These are just a few of the ways that Dakota Dental strives to use the newest technologies to make their patients more comfortable and give them the best possible dental care. Contact Dakota Dental today for more information or to make your next appointment.
