Teledentistry – The New Normal

Teledentistry – The New Normal

Blog Single

We are in the age of technology, but visiting your dentist virtually? It sounds unrealistic and a little ridiculous, but the fact of the matter is that it is authentic and legitimate. Teledentistry is the use of electronic information, imaging and communication technologies, including interactive audio, video, data communications, and store and forward technologies, to provide and support dental care delivery, diagnosis, consultation, treatment, and transfer of dental information and education. What a mouth full. Simply put, teledentistry is the new normal in this pandemic age of America. 

Teledentistry is proven to improve the dental hygiene of patients. Since the use of telehealth systems to connect providers with patients, it has become more convenient for patients to communicate to improve oral health. Since 2003, visits to dental offices have seen a steady decline. Teledentistry is also more affordable than in-office dentistry, which makes it more accessible. Research indicates that patients’ quality of care and success rates were the same whether patients used telemedicine or actually went into a dentist’s office.

Teledentistry itself can include virtual consultations and high-tech monitoring of patients. For example, it could be in the form of a video conference between a dentist and a patient to discuss an urgent matter. This helps people avoid unnecessary hospital visits and can save seats at dental practices. This is an excellent alternative to visiting the dentist with coronavirus because it also keeps the dentist and the patient safe from possibly contracting the virus and making the pandemic worse. 

Teledentistry can be a complete game-changer for dentists during the pandemic, and even after coronavirus. This concept can open up availability in dental offices for essential visits. This can help the staff be less overwhelmed and it is convenient for patients; they don’t have to take time off work to go to the dentist. 

It is important to remember that if there is an emergency, you should call your dental office immediately, just in case. Teledentistry is excellent for routine check-ups and to ask questions before going to your dental office, but it is still essential to visit for cleanings and any necessary procedures.

Why Dental Implants Might Be the Solution You Need

Blog Single

Accidents happen, and sometimes those accents can damage our beautiful teeth. Losing an adult tooth can feel like the end of the world, we know that at Cakmes Dental Studio. If you have lost teeth, dental implants may be an excellent solution to restore your smile, bring back your confidence, and get your life back to the way it was before. 

Dental implants can sound very scary, but they aren’t at all. A dental implant is a replacement for the root or roots of a tooth. Like your tooth roots, dental implants are secured in your jawbone. They are not visible after they have been placed. The implants are then used to secure your tooth’s visible aspects with crowns, bridgework, or dentures. At Cakmes Dental Studio, we provide both implant crowns and implant-supported dentures. Don’t worry, our dentures will give you beautiful shiny white teeth, not the wood ones you may have heard that George Washington had! 

Ancient dental implants have been traced back to around 600 AD when tooth-like pieces of shell were hammered into the jaw of a Mayan woman. Luckily, modern medicine has come a long way, and the procedure is a lot safer and smoother. The procedure itself only takes 1 to 2 hours with trained and experienced dentists. 

If you have lost teeth, you might be a fantastic candidate for dental implants. Some conditions and diseases may affect whether dental implants are the option for you, but we will find a solution if you schedule a consultation with our team. Three million people in the United States have implants, a number that is growing by 500,000 annually. This option to restore smiles has become a very successful operation. 

Our team at Cakmes Dental Studio is very experienced and has had the best training. Dental implant surgery is one of the safest and most predictable procedures in dentistry.
