Today, we’ll look at two different types of diamond discs and how they’re used.

Superflex Double-Sided Fine to Medium Diamond Grit

This diamond disc is commonly used for dental operations involving acrylic, ceramic, porcelain, metal, and plaster materials. They’re also employed for stripping, separating, and shaping material on the front and posterior teeth during orthodontic treatment. The Superflex double-sided diamond disc with fine to medium diamond grit is appropriate for speeds up to 20,000 RPM.

Flex Double Sided Fine to Standard Diamond Grit

These diamond discs with a fine to standard diamond grit are used in crown and bridge treatments. It’s also great for shaping and pre-separating. Acrylics, ceramics, porcelain, metals, and plaster materials can all benefit from this diamond disc with a fine to standard diamond grit. When using this diamond disc, a speed of 20,000 RPM is also advised.

When it comes to the patient experience, safety, and ultimate results, modern dentistry has improved. Taking advantage of modern dentistry means less is more, from improved procedures and high-tech diagnostics to better technology and more precise instruments.

Below we have listed a few benefits of modern dentistry:-

Less pain

Dental procedures have been made far less painful thanks to advances in laser technology, less invasive approaches, and comfort injection devices.

Less Inconvenience

The goal of providing better convenience to patients has been aided by cutting-edge dental technology that can speed up your session. Soft-tissue lasers for gum disease treatment and contemporary 3D imaging for same-day crowns can help you spend less time in the dentist’s chair and save money.

Recovery time is reduced

Another benefit of modern dentistry is the reduction in healing time. Many procedures (including root canals, dental implants, and smile makeovers) can be performed with less invasive techniques, allowing patients to heal more quickly.

Less Risk

In many dental treatments, the risk of failure is considerably lowered with more precise diagnostic equipment and devices. Furthermore, improved technologies such as low-radiation digital imaging and other sorts of advanced technology have made dentistry far safer.

Using today’s modern dental technology to address your smile’s demands can be a wonderfully relaxing, convenient, and rewarding experience. Many of the reasons why people avoid coming to the dentist have been eliminated by modern dentistry, including fear of discomfort, a busy schedule, and related risks.
