Understanding The Importance of Sedation Dentistry

Hey, my name is Shelly Katalgo. My love for sedation dentistry started in high school. My best friend had a severe fear of going to the dentist and I wanted to help her feel better about it. Although I always enjoyed my dental visits, I felt bad that she struggled so much with going to hers. My parents taught me about sedation dentistry and I instantly dreamed of becoming a dental professional. I wanted to help kids like my friend stay fear free throughout their appointments by using gentle techniques and professional medications. Although I opted to follow a different career path, my passion for dentistry remained throughout the years. I will update my site with developments in this industry as soon as they are reported. I will also discuss the benefits of sedation dentistry in detail. Thanks for visiting. I hope you come back soon.

3D Printing And Your Smile

Franklin Steward

Even if you are devoted to your home dental care, you are bound to have a few issues, especially as you age. If you've been putting off a trip to the dentist because you dread a lengthy and sometimes painful tooth replacement process, take heart. Breakthroughs in the dental arts have been coming fast and furiously. In particular, you should investigate the joys of 3D dentistry.


In the past, if you needed a crown, bridge, or other dental appliance, your dentist would measure and make a mold of your mouth. Then you might get a temporary crown or other aid to wear until your permanent aid came back from the lab. In some instances, you might have to remain without a tooth until your dentist received your order back from the lab. When your dental professional uses 3D printing technology, they can take care of all aspects of tooth replacement or correction in one appointment. They can simply print what you need and place it immediately.


Teeth, crowns, and veneers that are created by use of 3D printing can often look more natural than those that have been milled at a lab. The printer can better recreate the natural grooves and other irregularities of real teeth. If your tooth looks too perfect, people will be able to tell that it is artificial. You want an implant or simple crown to blend in with the rest of your smile.


In the past, you could wait weeks for your order to come back from the lab only to find that the finished product was unsatisfactory. The replacement might be too big, the wrong color, or simply defective in some way. With 3D printing, your dentist knows immediately if there is a problem and can take steps to correct it in the office. They can make certain that the dental appliance you receive is the best that it can possibly be. You also won't be tempted to accept something flawed simply because you do not want to wait for your replacement any longer. 

If you have a dental problem, do not hesitate to seek out treatment from your dentist. So many fabulous breakthroughs have occurred in recent years that you may well be surprised by how easy and painless dentistry has become. If your dentist uses 3D technology, your dental procedures can be even easier to complete. You will get fast, customized service and go home with a beautiful smile in no time. Contact a dental clinic like Oral Surgery Associates Inc to find out whether they offer 3D technology.
