Advances in biomaterials and dental technology have revolutionized the art of oral care. Newer techniques are less invasive, more comfortable and procedures that formerly took multiple trips to the dentist can often be performed over one office visit.  An array of imaging tools have become available to dental offices and enable accurate diagnosing of not only tissues and teeth problems but also helps diagnosed medical conditions related to the maxillary and head as well as respiratory problems. Equipped with a large array of tools to collect patient specific information, dentists can now customize the treatments to the patient. New dental materials make dentistry more durable, efficient and natural-looking.  The introduction of new surface treatments has taken the art of the restoration of a smile to new levels. Stem cell therapy is in research for dental care and brings hope for tissue regeneration to solve gum disease problems and tooth decay issues.
