Why you should talk to your teen if they are grinding your teeth

Here’s What The Dental Treatments Of The Future Look Like

New technologies could transform some of the most common dental treatments. These are some of the advances that you can expect to see at your dentist’s office in the near future.
Key takeaways:
– Laser technology offers superior precision in the treatment of cavities, as dental lasers are minimally invasive
– Another reason to smile: undergoing root canal therapy could soon be a breeze thanks to laser and stem cell technology, which could help regenerate tissue and kill bacteria on the affected teeth without causing pain
– 3D printer technology is expected to become the standard when it comes to dental implants, and nanotechnology could help create implants that can be set in place via injection or rinse techniques, instead of surgery
As you can see, very soon fear of going to the dentist may be a thing of the past!
