Dental Technologies: Investing in Progress for You

Dental Technologies: Dentist Shows X-ray on Tablet

Romeoville Dental Center Keeps Patients at the Forefront of Proven Dental Technologies

According to the History of Dentistry website, when it comes to dental technologies, the first equipment dates back as far as 7000 BC. Yes, that’s 9000 years ago. It’s hard to even fathom that amount of time. But the need for dentistry dates back even further, and every advancement has been in the interest of the patient’s health. Not all of them have been especially comfortable for patients, or dentists for that matter. Along the way, dentistry has evolved through some pretty tough tools to get to the relatively comfortable spot we’re in today.

Here in Romeoville, we stay connected to all of the latest developments and watch for the evidence that shows new dental technologies are proven and ready to make your experience better, easier, more comfortable, faster, or maybe more affordable. It’s important to us to be sure that we stay at the forefront without adding risk. That’s why we’re constantly reviewing, evaluating, and investing at the right time.

Advanced Dental Technologies at Work for You

If you’re one of the many patients we’ve served across generations, you might have noticed some of the changes and upgrades in dental technology. But we have newer patients and younger patients who might not realize how things have changed over the years. We thought you’d be interested in learning about what it takes to keep you healthy and comfortable during your dental treatments. We’ve employed new technologies in four primary categories:

  1. Dental X-Ray Imaging: Who remembers photo development darkrooms? That’s what we used to have to do to develop your dental x-rays, and the pictures took up to 5 minutes each. Now we get them in seconds on a screen! It saves more than time though: it’s also more comfortable for you. We’ll give you the big picture.
  2. Crown Creation: Not so long ago, crowns and bridges would require multiple appointments and weeks of waiting. That’s because we used to send in our molds to the labs that needed weeks to make the teeth and send them back. Now, we offer same-day crowns! Carve out a few minutes to learn how we do it.
  3. Preparing Teeth for Fillings and Other Procedures: Dental tools — and the sounds they make — are sometimes are at the root of fear and anxiety, but they’re essential to dental care. Fortunately, there’s been progress in how things like drills work, making them quieter and less scary. Watch for our blog drilling down on dental tool technology.

Patient Experience and Administration: You’ll see technology everywhere in our office, not just in the dental chair. From how you check in to how we keep track of your secure records, nearly everything has a digital component now. We’ll let you know when it’s time to click through to our office technology overview.

Drilling Down on Advanced Technologies

Technology has been top of mind as we’ve been working to get our new Palos Heights office all set up and ready for that office move later in the spring. Over the coming months, we’ll share details of how each category has evolved and what we’re using now to take the best possible care of our patients.

For now, we encourage you to ask lots of questions when you’re here for your cleaning or treatments — answering your questions is one of our very favorite things!

Hands down the best dental office to receive your dental and cosmetic needs. The staff is always very friendly and welcoming. It’s also so nice knowing that they have 3 amazing doctors on staff who know their craft. No matter which provider you see, you just know you’re in great hands. My last visit was with Dr. Sheikh for Botox. She’s very thorough and has a keen eye for detail. I’m two weeks out from my Botox treatment and let me just say, my skin has never felt so smooth or looked as radiant as it does now. Always a pleasure visiting Dr. Sheikh!

Please look no further! This entire office has their act together. I’ve been seeing Dr Sheikh and she is so patient and gentle.She is also a perfectionist and listens to your concerns and delivers options. I’ve also seen Dr Nina and Dr Patel and certainly no complaints with either of them. I’ve had 3 crowns and numerous fillings and no problems with any of the work. Thanks for building my complete confidence!
