Straightening teeth without braces

Teeth are generally taken for granted till it presents us with issues which hinder our day to day life. Till we feel the pain, we do not think about visiting the dentist or second guess the care we take at home. Till we are unable to bite and enjoy our meal we do not realize how deep the damage is in our teeth and gums. Dental treatments are now made available in almost all cities and towns for the easy reach of patients. With dental care widely available patients are more likely to step in for checkups when they are passing by.

The dentist also encourages maintaining the look and alignment of the teeth as well as their health with great emphasis on improper bites which can lead to jaw issues in the future. Orthodontics is a field of dentistry which studies and treats malocclusions, known as improper bites. This is because of irregular teeth and/or disproportionate jaws. The treatment will either focus on dental displacements or can deal with modifications and controls in line with the facial growth, known as dentofacial orthopedics. Orthodontic treatments are mainly carried out for aesthetic reasons, which help to improve the appearance of the face and teeth e.g. teeth straightening procedures. But the treatment is also required to solve practical issues and provide the patient with an improved bite.

Minor issues can be corrected gradually over time with no issues by fixed braces or the best alternative of using customized, removable and clear tools called aligners or invisalign in Dubai (invisible braces).

Intraoral Camera Technology for better patient diagnosis

The Dental Care in Dubai has introduced the use of the Intraoral Camera as an effective diagnostic tool. This type of advanced dental technology allows for better views of the inside of a patient’s mouth and problem teeth, making it easier to make a diagnosis and therefore provide a better treatment option as well as overall treatment of the problem by an experienced dentist.

The Intraoral camera is not a substitute for X-rays, which provides valuable information needed to identify and treat all potential problems, but a game changer in the dental industry giving the edge of better visuals of the dental problem. We have implemented the use of Intraoral Cameras in order to enhance our diagnostic capabilities and to see beyond what the X-rays can show us, explains a dental surgeon in Dubai.

The advantage of using Intraoral Cameras is that it  can show the surgeon what’s happening inside a patient’s mouth from different angles. Patients also get an opportunity to see what is happening in their mouth with the view of the same images in real time on a large monitor.

This new digital technology has also proven to be helpful in working with insurance companies to get acceptance and the claims passed for various dental procedures and treatment options.

The Intraoral Camera is a highly advanced piece of equipment and is a huge breakthrough in dental technology. The equipment varies and comes in different shapes and sizes, it is as small as a dental mirror and easy to maneuver in the mouth. For the benefit of the patients, the general dentist in Dubai will give the patients a brief virtual video tour of their mouths as the camera, with its own built-in light source, zooms in with up to 25 times magnification of an individual tooth. The patient and dentist have the option of viewing these images and problems and getting more accurate pictures of the patient’s problem and be more involved with the patient to discuss the best possible solution. A problem such as a fractured tooth can be easier to spot and impossible to ignore when it is magnified on a computer monitor or TV screen. The Intraoral Camera is painless and radiation free. While this appliance is designed for Intraoral imaging, some cameras also can capture Extraoral full face images for patient records.

Since the Intraoral Camera has very powerful magnification capabilities, dental surgeons are able to observe and explain the possible problems such as excessive wear, cracked teeth, plaque deposits, cavities next to fillings and broken tooth fillings in Dubai. These sorts of conditions can be easily overlooked by dental X-rays.

Many patients, especially most of the younger patients, are very familiar with the latest technology and are comfortable with the high tech dental machines and gadgets. Computers and TV screens are their primary method of information processing.  However, certain older patient’s can be a little apprehensive about using these new machines and gadgets and need a little explanation from the dentists prior to engaging with the latest dental technology, a good example being the Intraoral Camera.
