Cutting-Edge Dental Treatment Enhances Health in ComfortDecember 6, 2016 by AACD Executive Office
The mission of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry is to advance excellence in the art and science of comprehensive cosmetic dentistry and encourage the highest standards of ethical conduct and responsible patient care. Advancements in technology are a critical component to fulfilling this mission, as one AACD Member dentist explains. “Cutting-edge technology makes dental treatment more comfortable and effective, and enhances overall health,” says AACD General Member Mark T. Weiser, DDS, a leader in cosmetic, preventive, and general dentistry in Santa Barbara for more than three decades.
By using the latest techniques, Dr. Weiser is able to reduce sensitivity and pain, speed healing from dental surgery, canker sores, and other oral conditions, and make a mouth feel as fabulous as it looks. And, there’s a big health bonus.
Technology to the Rescue
The latest technological advancements mean cavities can be detected in very early stages, and air abrasion techniques have replaced dreaded drills. Where numbing is required, it can be carefully controlled so that feeling, but not pain, returns quickly. Routine cleanings are painless. Where gum contouring or surgery are necessary, lasers make it pain and suture free and eradicate bacteria. Treatments for bite misalignment and jaw-related sleep disorders are drug-free. And, spa-style services, music, and movies put patients at ease.
The ozone form of oxygen kills harmful bacteria and other destructive organisms. In the hands of a trained dentist, ozone reduces the need for antibiotics, is not toxic, has no side effects, and significantly improves comfort and results. “There’s less sensitivity and pain after surgery or any other treatment, be it a filling, crown, or gum work, and healing time is quicker across the board,” says Dr. Weiser.
AACD member dentists are not only encouraged to use innovation in technology and materials to deliver dentistry that is predictable and long lasting, but to champion and provide minimally invasive treatment protocols, when and where appropriate, ensuring the protocols are consistent with the long-term health and needs of the patient.
