The Wonders of Modern Dentistry

As I look back from the days when I graduated Boston University in 1980 to today, I am amazed at the advancement of patient care. There has been a revolution in all aspects of the dental profession leading to a golden age.

As a general dentist the ability to adhere tooth colored composites to teeth has led to more conservative lifelike restorations and the demise of silver-mercury fillings. Modern dental porcelains are so strong that a metal base is no longer needed for crowns. This means less removal of tooth when a crown is needed and increased esthetics. Dentistry today is truly metal free!

The digital world has entered the dental office as well. X-rays are taken with sensors utilizing less radiation with software that enhances images immediately on the computer screen. Impressions for dental crowns are now scanned by a laser which goes to a 3D printer to create models.

I cannot begin to list all the advancements from computers, sterilization techniques, implants, environmental awareness to basic anesthesia. The modern dentist can offer tremendous advancements for today's patients.
