When most people think about a visit to the dentist, they don’t typically associate with fun times. Well, they might if they’re like Bill Murray playing the masochist in the dentist office in Little Shop of Horrors. But normally, not so much.

However, a trip to the dentist these days may reveal some new dental technology that’s actually fun. “Fun dental technology?” You ask with raised eyebrows. Yes, some dentists are certainly making a concentrated effort to change the visuals their patients have of the experience.

How Do You Connect New Dental Technology and Fun?

Sure it seems a stretch, but did you know that in some practices, patients are lucky enough to be presented with more interactivity than just the ability to see the back side of their own teeth with a Handheld Intraoral Camera Viewer like the PatientView SD below.

PatientView SD Puts Screen in Patients’ Hands to Show Inside Their Mouths

What if the screen in the patient’s hand was actually a dental video game?

9 Dental Video Games

Believe it or not, developers are creating dental video games. Dr. Sweeney in Hesperia, CA lets kids choose games to play even while they’re in the chair. Here are some dental video games out there (in no particular order):

  1. Grush is a toothbrush that combines reality with virtual reality gaming.
  2. Dental Implant
  3. Dental Word-O-Rama
  4. Dental Jigsaw
  5. Match Three Dental
  6. Molar Madness
  7. Dental Word Search
  8. To Tell The Tooth
  9. Dental Distress

Taking New Dental Technology to the (Fun) Extreme

Even though this is not actually new dental technology, entire video game rooms are popping up in dental practices too. I wonder if the dentists use the games in their game rooms more than their patients do. Check out the game rooms in Fox Creek Family Dental, and Smile Galaxy.

Can Interactive Dental Video Games Help Teach Dentistry Students?

Abstract:

“Written and clinical tests compared the change in clinical knowledge and practical clinical skill of first-year dental students watching a clinical video recording of the three-step etch-and-rinse resin bonding system to those using an interactive dental video game teaching the same procedure. The research design was a randomized controlled trial with eighty first-year dental students enrolled in the preclinical operative dentistry course. Students’ change in knowledge was measured through written examination using a pre-test and a post-test, as well as clinical tests in the form of a benchtop shear bond strength test. There was no statistically significant difference between teaching methods in regards to change in either knowledge or clinical skills, with one minor exception relating to the wetness of dentin following etching. Students expressed their preference for an interactive self-paced method of teaching.”–Division of Restorative and Prosthetic Dentistry, College of Dentistry, The Ohio State University, Columbus, OH 43210-1267, USA.

Maybe not conclusively, but dental video games mentioned above can actually improve one’s smile!

This video is Dental Humor at its best. Can you imagine Steve Martin as a dentist? As this dentist? Can you even imagine him in dental school? Regardless of what he’d be as a classmate, watch and see what he’d be like as one of your peers.

That’s good dental humor!

By the way, here is a hilarious video of the dentist joke, “A Masochist Walks Into A Dentist’s Office” with Bill Murray and Steve Martin in Little Shop of Horrors.

Dentist jokes are funny, but a video of a dentistry joke is over the top.

Have you heard this one? “A masochist walks into a dentist office…”

Never mind. I can’t tell it as well as this video does.
Here’s a video clip from Little Shop of Horrors where Bill Murray (the masochist) walks in to visit Steve Martin (the dentist). You won’t need laughing gas for this one.

Digital Dental Radiography

Digital Dental RadiographyBy simply harnessing a controlled burst of X-ray radiation, a radiographic image is created by penetrating oral structures at various levels prior to striking the sensor and producing an intraoral radiographic view inside of the patient’s mouth.

Prior to 1987 these images were all produced on film until French dentist Francis Mouyen gave digital imaging its first introduction into the world of dentistry.

Digital dental radiography has its advantages and disadvantages over film-based radiography. Video Dental Concepts passionately believes that the advantages of digital dental imaging strongly outweigh its disadvantages and we would like to take a moment to compare and contrast what some of these are.

Digital Dental Imaging Comparison:

VDC believes that the safety of the patient is always the top priority. One of the advantages of using a digital system is that it gives off a lower dose of radiation to both the patient and the equipment operator. The digital solution eliminates the need for film processing which often requires the use of hazardous wastes and chemicals during the processing stages. Digital imaging has the potential to improve the image with an improved gray scale that aids in diagnosis; this is accomplished without the need to re-expose the patient. Some disadvantages are the possible difficulties of ideal sensor placement when placing the wired sensors intraorally. Furthermore, the initial investment costs when procuring individual sensors, monitors, and software can be an initial setback to a dental practice, however, many dentists agree that retrofitting their practices with digital technology is well worth it and it promptly pays for itself.

System compatibility complications with other professionals, insurance companies, and future equipment upgrades are virtually nonexistent nowadays as the dental profession and its network have risen to meet the technological requirements of the 21st century. The ability to electronically transfer images via the internet has sped up communications between practitioners and insurance companies drastically. The digital method increases efficiency and enables the dental professional to spend less time adhering to administrative duties and time-consuming clerical tasks and more time helping a greater number of patients. In addition, patient education has been enhanced by the ability to use the monitor to view and explain x-ray images. Almost all of the practitioners who have made the switch from film to digital with the help of Video Dental Concepts tell us they absolutely love it, and their patients love the fact that they get in and out of the office in less time.

We have purchased sensors, intraoral cameras, and xray units in that time. I must say that every interaction I’ve had with the company has always been a positive one. They stand firmly behind the products that they sell. I expect a lot from the companies with which I do business and they handle my requests and concerns with unwavering class and integrity. They are always helpful with online support or friendly telephone interaction. There have been instances where they have gone well beyond their actual contractual obligations in order to provide what I would consider exemplary customer service . I recommend them highly.

Diagnosis

The patient never developed his upper lateral incisors (the teeth on each side of the front teeth) and wished to have these teeth replaced. Today’s imaging technology makes the need for treatment clear to the patient.

Treatment

After consulting me, the patient decided to replace his lateral incisors with dental implants and crowns. This treatment allowed restoration of the missing teeth without preparing or involving the teeth on either side of the space.
