Dental field has seen many changes in past few decades

Posted on March 21st, 2011 No Comments

The dental field has seen many changes in the past few decades. These changes are most obvious in the equipment that is used, infection control, how pain is managed and material that are used when restoring teeth.

Today’s high speed equipment helps to make sure that the precision is nearly perfect. Older drills rotated at 35,000 rpm when today’s drills rotate at a speed of nearly 200,000 rpm.

Changes are also seen in X-ray images, which used to be done on old films that had high exposure to radiation and now they are done on digital sensors. Different needles are used to deliver injections so that pain is cut down and new pain medication is used that is safer for patients and has long term anesthesia.

If you are looking for a quality dentist in the area, you need experienced representation on your side. Contact the Austin dentists of BridgeView Dental calling 512-347-8299 today if you are interested in becoming a new patient.
