Dr. Feiz also provides several other examples of how 21st century technology in the dentist’s office can be an invaluable tool for getting patients the care they need.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) September 10, 2015
An article published September 1 by Medical Xpress discussed a recent study detailed in the British Dental Journal; it showed that the use of a smartphone app that reminded people exactly how long to brush was actually shown to motivate more effective brushing. The app, Brush DJ, is designed to play music from the user’s phone for exactly two minutes so that they can have an enjoyable experience while knowing exactly for how long to brush. According to Dr. Farzad Feiz, head dentist at Calabasas Dental Group and California Dental Care, this is another example of how technology can be utilized to help support a patient’s oral hygiene and overall dental care. Dr. Feiz also provides several other examples of how 21st century technology in the dentist’s office can be an invaluable tool for getting patients the care they need:
- Crowns – While dental crowns have been around for a long time, Dr. Feiz notes that better technology now allows dentists to create restorations that are incredibly accurate and long lasting so that patients can enjoy a healthy smile for years to come. A rushed dental impression can leave a patient worse off than when they started, so it is important for dentists to use all of the available technology at their disposal to make sure everything is accurate, notes Dr. Feiz.
- Treating Gum Disease – One of the most common oral hygiene issues that adults experience is periodontal disease, more commonly referred to as gum disease. While proper brushing and flossing is one of the best methods to prevent gum disease, Dr. Feiz notes that modern medical technology has provided for reliable treatments for adults who already have moderate or severe periodontal disease. Using a revolutionary antibiotic known as Arestin®, Dr. Feiz is able to target the infected gums and effectively treat the infection while using a smaller dose of medicine.
- Teeth Whitening – While preventative care may be the best method to avoid stained or yellowed teeth, even the most diligent brushing regimen may not fend off a moderate coffee and/or tea, red wine, or cola habit, notes Dr. Feiz. Luckily, he explains, the advanced Zoom whitening system available at Calabasas Dental Group and California Dental Care can whiten teeth multiple shades in a single visit.
