Dental clinics in Dubai use the latest technology

Dubai is known as being a high tech city. Our residents are high tech too, with the latest smart devices in their offices, homes and on their bodies. Technology makes life easy for us and that includes technology within health care and at a dental clinic.

dentists AND Technology 

Technology is used to examine your teeth, identify problems and fix the problems. A good dentist uses smart tools, ensuring your visits are quick, easy, professional and less painful. While we can never guarantee a pain-free experience, because some treatments are more uncomfortable than others, the best technology ensures your experience is as comfortable as possible.

Tooth whitening

Many dentists today offer tooth whitening as a cosmetic dental service. You can do home tooth whitening as well. But when you have it done by a dentist, a specialist at a Dubai dental clinic, you are going to get a far superior result. Dentists today use the latest technological advancements meaning that the tooth whitening works, it lasts, and it is a pretty comfortable experience.

Dental imaging

Dental imaging is used if x-rays are needed of your mouth, to check for decay or to check for any dental / oral problems you are experiencing that cannot be seen with the human eye. A good dentist in Dubai will use the latest technology to not just treat you but also, to prevent you from having problems.

Technology works a few different ways. It makes it easier for a dentist to treat you. Technology makes the treatment far more comfortable for you. It also helps to prevent further onset of oral disease, as well as fewer cavities, less gum disease and in general, better oral health.

Dental treatment should never be sore

While some dental treatment is going to be uncomfortable, it should never be sore. Anything that is painful needs to be done under anaesthetic. While nobody really looks forward to having a dental filling, root canal treatment or dental implants, technology means that it is far less stressful having these treatments today. Our dental clinic in Dubai makes use of the latest technology, and combining technology with an excellent team of dentists, means your visits are going to be smoothness and seamless.

You can even use dental technology at home

Nobody wants to get too carried away and there is nothing wrong with a good old toothbrush, toothpaste and brushing teeth the right way. An electric toothbrush is a great tool to have (have both, electric and ordinary). You can find apps online that track your tooth brushing or flossing!. We feel you just need to get into a good routine.. There is no reason for you to use technology when it comes to your teeth, unless you want to. But visit the dentist on a regular basis, brush your teeth twice a day and if you are in Dubai and looking for a dental clinic, the American Medical and Dental Clinic is the best.

Oral Health Concerns More Common in Seniors

When people are young they take their health for granted.  But as they get older, health becomes a major concern.  Ageing is a normal process, and it is the one thing nobody can escape. With medical technology and advancement today, most people living in first world countries live well beyond the age of 75.  The UAE is one of those countries that has a good life expectancy, with most males living up until the age of 77, and females up to 79.

Because of medical technology, and access to excellent health care in Dubai, life expectancy are increasing.  It’s a good idea, as one gets older, to do the usual medical checks on a regular basis.  Visit your general practitioner every six months or so, or as advised, to have your blood pressure, cholesterol and sugar checked.  Your doctor will tell you what other tests are necessary as you get older – mammograms for women on an annual basis, prostate checks for men, and more.

Dental care is as important as anything else.  Oral health becomes more problematic as you age, and this is why it is so important to look after your teeth from a young age. Parents should always take their children to a pediatric dentist in Dubai as soon as their babies start getting teeth, and children and adults should then be encouraged to have regular dental check ups.  This is a way to ensure that oral health issues are not encountered.

Dental Problem in Senior

Some oral health issues cannot be avoided.  Seniors will lose their teeth.  Seniors will generally need dental implants, root treatments, cavities filled and may experience bacterial oral disease.  At the American Medial and Dental Center in Dubai, there is an excellent team of dentists, dental specialists, dental cosmetic specialists, orthodontists and dental surgeons.  They deal with everything from dental crowns, root canals, dental extractions, dental sealants and dentures.

Most older people will need dentures as they get older.  A lot of health concerns for ageing people are genetic – some are more prone to life threatening diseases, arthritis, dementia or osteoporosis – than others.  Dental care can also be genetic, but it does help to look after your teeth from an early age.  If you haven’t looked after your teeth, or have only visited the dentist on an irregular basis, you do not need to worry.  Dentists see all kinds of patients and they don’t judge!  They fix.  And if you are in Dubai, then the only place to go is the American Medical and Dental Center, to have your teeth assessed, cleaned, cared for and fixed if necessary.

Senior Smile

If you are reading this and you have young children, get them to a pediatric dentist in Dubai. Kids really should be taught about oral health from a young age, and they should be taught not to fear the dentist. A good pediatric dentist in Dubai will ensure that a child is made to feel comfortable and learns not to fear the dentist.  A good dentist, one who does his or her job well, will have kids looking forward to a visit to the dentist. And the same goes with adults and geriatrics too.

Dental health has been connected to overall general health.  Research has been done that shows that dental problems can be related to heart problems, certain cancers and pneumonia.  This coupled with general dental issues for the aged, such as root decay, cavities, darkened teeth and periodontists, mean regular visits to the dentist are recommended.  Again, find yourself a good pediatric dentist in Dubai, and you will find a fantastic team at the American Medical and Dental Center, and start care from a young age.

Medical and dental technology has improved enormously over the past few years.  Treatments today, especially at the American Medical and Medical Center, are relatively pain free, as well as being super advanced.  If you do have oral issues, deal with them quickly.

A few tips for older people regarding dental care:-

  • Brush your teeth twice daily.
  • Floss once daily.
  • Use an oral mouthwash once a day.
  • An electric toothbrush may be a good idea.
  • Clean your dentures daily.
  • Visit your dentist every six months or when needed.

For parents of young children we recommend:-

  • Give your baby a play-play toothbrush to use while teething.
  • Take your child to a pediatric dentist in Dubai from a young age.
  • Encourage brushing twice daily, and help when necessary.
  • Teach your kids to floss.
  • Teach your kids to love their teeth and to take good care of them!

While we have spoken a lot about various diseases that can affect senior citizens, remember that exercise and fresh food are also vitally important.  Fruit, vegetables, dairy, protein and fat are all vital, together with the recommended nutrients and vitamins.  And no matter your age, walk, jog or visit the gym!
