Technology is assisting Curtis Couch with early detection of a number of dental complicationsDental technology is always advancing and the treatment options are forever expanding. Here at Curtis Couch in Thousand Oaks we are dedicated to providing you with the latest in dental advancements and are invested in the future of your teeth. Our technology assists in improving the convenience and treatment method for general dental complications through less-invasive and more comfortable procedures. New technology means that the size of oral image capture can now be almost unnoticeable with devices such as the intraoral camera.
How can the intraoral camera help me?The intraoral camera is extremely small and delicate compared to older methods and it allows you and your dentist to see crevices and parts of your mouth that have never been seen before. This method also allows simultaneous patient and dentist viewing of the mouth which allows for a more thorough explanation of problems in the mouth. The patient will be able to see their own mouth projected on a screen which will enhance the dentist-to-patient relationship as Curtis Couch will ensure that you understand every nook and cranny of your mouth. The intraoral camera also provides a much more precise and enhanced view of the mouth which means that your dentist at Curtis Couch will be able to have a more thorough investigation of your mouth and possible symptoms of dental complications.
Dental technology can also improve your comfort and reduce pain during proceduresDental technology such as high-power microscopes can enhance the precision of drilling in the mouth which in turn can reduce the amount of pain experienced after surgery. Although you will be under anesthesia during most drilling procedures the procedure can still be improved by accuracy. This meticulousness can also enhance the success rate of dental implants which can sometimes cause small dental complications.
