What’s up with all the technology?

It’s great, isn’t it? At least I hope you think it’s great because I certainly do. Back in the 1970’s, dental procedures hadn’t really moved much beyond what you might have seen at the beginning of the 20th century.

Ow!Robert Stender: But today, with the advent of computers, CAD/CAM machines, lasers, and so much more, technology has just transformed the dental field. It certainly transformed me.

Now, I can take a 3D X-ray of your mouth, use a microscope to get close up and personal with your teeth, and use my CAD/CAM machine to make a new crown for you right there in the office. And the quality and longevity of my restorations are so much higher.  20 years ago, to be honest, I was not very excited to be a dentist. There was just so much I wanted to do but couldn’t because the technology just wasn’t there.

Now, I feel like I’m living in a golden age of dentistry. I’ll tell you, it’s just a great time to be a dentist.
