  New York, NY (PRWEB) January 29, 2015       Going to the dentist can be time consuming, especially if a patient needs a crown. But new technology can reduce time in the chair.     Walk out with a new crown over lunchtime from start to finish thanks to the new digital-based technology now available to dentists.     Sharde Harvey, D.D.S, principal of New York-based Smiles Park Avenue Dental creates a 3D image of the damaged tooth using the on-site Serona CEREC system. Dr. Harvey uses CAD/CAM -- computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing -- to create a crown while a patient waits--usually taking no more than 90 minutes.           "Back in the day, the process of getting a crown often necessitated at least two visits with weeks between each one. First, the dentist numbed the area and drilled the tooth, filing it down to make room for the crown. Then, he or she made an impression of the tooth to send to a lab. The hole in the tooth was covered with a temporary filling while you waited for your crown," notes Dr. Harvey.       It arrived at the dentist's office two or three weeks later.

  Coral Springs, FL (PRWEB) January 29, 2015   Friedman Dental Group of South Florida is a leader in reconstructive, esthetics, and implant dentistry. They are now offering a revolutionary new procedure that provides their patients with high quality dental implants in one day.           Dr. Eli Friedman, the owner and operator of Friedman Dental Group has recently launched this new service. The procedure is ideal for patients who have missing or failing teeth and require a prosthesis or an entire arch of new teeth. With this service, patients can leave Dr. Friedman's practice with a new set of permanent teeth within the same day their failing teeth are removed. The dental implants restore the patient's chewing ability and help preserve the jawbone. Dr. Friedman is one of the few prosthodontists in the area who holds a certification in dental implants which enables him to surgically place each implant. This is a huge advantage as it tremendously reduces any potential risk or errors often caused by other dentists.       Dental implants are typically made from titanium and act as anchors for prosthetic teeth by naturally fusing to the jawbone.

Convergent Dental Celebrates Explosive Growth, Widespread Adoption of its Innovative Solea CO2 Hard and Soft Tissue Dental Laser

Biotechnology Industry Organization has issued the following news release:

Yankee Dental Congress – Convergent Dental Inc., a privately held dental device company, is proud to announce the significant milestones the company reached in 2014, the first year its flagship dental laser Solea was available to the market. Solea has quickly established itself as a critical tool in the dental operatory because it enables any dentist to virtually eliminate anesthesia and blood from operative dentistry. Solea’s success is largely attributed to its unique 9.3 micron wavelength and computer controls, both of which are firsts in laser dentistry.

Empowering dentists to perform virtually anesthesia-free and blood-free procedures is transforming practices with dramatic efficiency gains and entirely new patient experiences. With drills, dentists lose valuable time injecting patients and waiting for numbness, then they are limited to working in one quadrant of the mouth due to the risk of patient injury. Solea dentists report performing 95 percent of both hard and soft tissue procedures without anesthesia or bleeding, enabling them to start immediately, routinely execute multi-quadrant dentistry, fill cavities when they are discovered in hygiene and perform soft tissue procedures they would never have done without a laser. These time savings result in dentists performing six or more procedures per day and revenue gains of 25-40 percent.

Emotionless while vacuuming saliva

WITH his deadpan assistant hoovering the inside of my mouth with that ghastly sucky pipe, the spits and hisses splitting the sanitised silence, the dentist took a step back and tutted.

"Looks as if you've been eating too much sugar," he offered in that irritating "will they ever learn?" tone.

"I don't mind you calling me fat," I mumbled, my tongue wrestling with the angry pipe, "but I've warned you before about calling me sugar."

Is your pet suffering in silence?

Most common clinical health problem in dogs and cats can go unnoticed by pet owners

GUELPH, ON, Jan. 29, 2015 /CNW/ - A new survey by Ipsos Reid has revealed the good, the bad and the ugly about pet owners' awareness of dental diseases in their cats and dogs.

According to the survey, conducted on behalf of Royal Canin, while nine in ten Canadian pet owners believe dental disease is linked to their pet's overall health, a quarter of them are unaware of the clinical signs of the disease and only 12 per cent of them could identify all the signs of the disease. What's worse is that many pets may be suffering in silence.
