Ways Modern Technology Has Changed Your Visit to the Dentist

Dental offices used to be places that often generated fear. Many adults who have neglected their oral health have done so due to fear of the dentist caused by experiences they had in their early years. But today, more dentists than ever strive to make a visit to their office not only stress-free but pleasant. Many of today’s modern dentist’s office strive to provide more of a spa-like experience.

Minimizing pain, maximizing comfort, and listening to patients so that the experience can be customized are all things that are part of the culture at our Austin dental office. We strive to make every experience as pleasant as possible. There are a number of areas where you’ll see the difference:

The Dentist’s Office

Today’s dental offices are more comfortable and relaxing. Patients can often watch TV or listen to music during procedures, making the time go by faster. Even the waiting rooms of today’s modern dental offices are more comfortable with comforts and amenities that make the wait much more pleasant.

The Process

New dental equipment and staff that go out of their way to make patients comfortable as well as a consultative approach puts the patient in charge of and aware of their dental care. At Broberg and Tieken Dental we strive to keep you informed so that there are no surprises. We aren’t pressure-driving salespeople. We want you to be comfortable and informed with patient-focused treatment options and, depending on the situation, there may be multiple approaches to help achieve the goal of a healthy and beautiful smile.

The Equipment

Dental technology advances make appointments and procedures less invasive and more productive. Here are a few of the ways that works

  • Digital X-Rays mean faster examinations in an eco-friendlier environment. They also mean less exposure to radiation.
  • Screening equipment like VELscope and DIAGNOdent can mean that cavities are found sooner, enabling your dentist to keep more of your natural tooth. It can also mean that problems, such as periodontal disease and oral cancer, could be caught and treated before putting your health at risk.
  • Options like sedation dentistry also exist to help make your appointment go smoothly and be stress-free
  • Laser equipment can also mean that certain procedures are faster, with no pain, no sutures, and no bleeding.
