Three Emerging Trends in Dental Care for 2015
The dental care industry continues to evolve in response to demand for new treatments and new targets within the marketplace. As specialists within the industry, our team has witnessed the many changes that have taken place within the oral health field in recent years. We’ve seen the introduction of digital x-rays, laser dentistry and the evolution of cleaning technologies. In this blog, we’ll highlight three of the emerging trends set to take hold in 2015.
1) Improved Patient Access to Treatment Information
With the technology now available to patients, they’re able to research various industry treatments from the touch-of-a-button. This access to information will increase in 2015, when it’s expected a greater proportion of the population will have access to smart phone technology. This technology will also be utilized to help improve communication between patients and their oral care professional to reduce the knowledge gap and ensure optimal treatment results.
2) Longer Lasting Whitening Treatments
Where previously, patients could only achieve high quality whitening that lasted for a period of a few months, many are now able to achieve bright white teeth whitening over many years. And the latest products for 2015 are set to provide whitening performance over a period of a lifetime with just one simple treatment. We’re learning a lot about the way teeth react to whitening products and the leading manufacturers are honing their whitening agents to ensure lasting performance. Speak with our team to learn more on this exciting area of cosmetic dentistry!
3) Laser Treatments Limiting Pain for Common Procedures
Another leading trend heading for 2015 is the common use of lasers within dental practices for a wide range of treatments. Laser technology continues to be honed to provide performance benefits beyond the initial aesthetic advantages early laser systems offered. Instead of simply using laser treatment for their teeth whitening processes, professionals will now be able to use the technology for treatments such as periodontal therapy.
We’re in an ever-changing dental care environment in which new treatments are being introduced to help ensure improved results for patients across the globe. 2015 promises to be an exciting year for dentistry and we’ll be working to bring the latest treatments to our patients.
