How Will Dental Care Be in the Future?

what's next written on chalkboard

Dentistry has come a long way in the last few decades. Gone are the days of painful procedures, difficult X-ray processes, and impersonal service. Where, then, can we expect things to go in the future?

Technological Advancements

The future of dentistry lies in technological breakthroughs. Already we have intraoral cameras that give us an up-close look at your teeth so that you can follow along with what we’re doing and so that we can gather more insight on your dental health. We can only imagine that in the future, we’ll have even more high-definition, smaller intraoral cameras to work with and X-ray technology that is radiation-free.

No More Pain

Many patients fear the dentist because they believe that they will experience unbearable pain during their visits. Pain-free dentistry may sound like an oxymoron to some, but it’s actually a reality today. Here at Rigby Advanced Dental, we offer our patients nitrous oxide and oral conscious sedation so that you feel comfortable and pain-free during your treatments. While we believe that dental treatments will be pretty much painless in the future, we hope that there will also be a larger variety of sedation options for patients who feel jittery in the dental chair.

Ultimate Comfort

It’s no fun feeling like your mouth is stuffed and stretched with a bunch of tools. Tools like the Isolite® System, which illuminates your mouth to reduce shadows and increase treatment efficiency, are already helping patients feel more comfortable during their visits. We anticipate slimmer, more ergonomically designed tools that ensure optimal efficiency and comfort during your treatments so that you never have to dread your dental treatments again. In the future, visiting the dentist will be more like visiting the spa!

We currently offer all of the latest technologies to help your visits be more accurate and relaxed. Whether you are looking for a general, cosmetic, or more advanced treatment, you will receive the best care possible at Rigby Advanced Dental. Contact us to see and feel the difference!
