A Dentist in Wilkes Barre, PA Use a Technology to Provide Dental Care3:29 pm James DeFinnis
Medical and dental industry breakthroughs continue to fascinate the world. The technological procedure known as the Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics (CEREC), now provides dentists and patients more convenience by creating teeth replacement in just hours, through the use of computer-based technologies. The process normally takes days and even weeks to complete, using traditional methods. An infographic published in HealthResearchFunding.org describes the procedure as follows:
“Your dentist will begin by first preparing your tooth for the restoration process. Your tooth is then sprayed with a special dust. The special dust makes it easier for the camera to take a detailed picture of your actual tooth. The image that the camera generates is later sent to a computer. Once the image is transmitted to the computer the dentist views the picture of your tooth on the computer screen and begins to design the final restoration.
After the dentist has finished the final restoration design of your tooth the completed design is sent to the milling unit. After this is done your dentist will make sure that both the restoration size and color are correct following careful examination of the restoration. If the restoration size and color are both correct the dentist will proceed to polish the restoration and will affix it with dental cement.”
While the procedure may be gaining ground across the country, only highly reliable dental practices are offering this to their patients. A skilled dentist in Wilkes Barre, PA and elsewhere needs to undergo special training to be able to provide this service. In addition to standard dental education requirements, dentists who employ CEREC need to acquire a special set of knowledge and skills to successfully perform the procedure.
Wilkes Barre residents are among the fortunate ones who can enjoy this breakthrough through a reputable Wilkes Barre dentist, like Dr. James C. DeFinnis, DMD at Back Mountain Dental, who offers this service. CEREC technology helps in making dental procedures much more patient-friendly than ever before by making these procedures more convenient and less stressful for both dentist and patient.
