Dental Equipment and Their Uses

The tools a dentist uses make it possible to perform complex procedures necessary for various patients’ specific needs. You may be curious about the types of dental equipment and their uses – in fact, you may even recognize some from your own visit to a dental office.

Some of the most common include:

  • Dental Chair
  • Water/Air Tip
  • Probes
  • X-Ray
  • Sterilization Machine
  • Air Compressors

While these tools are perfectly suitable for a standard visit, larger and more advanced equipment is usually necessary for a more in-depth look at what’s going on. Advanced imaging tools, such as intraoral scanners, can take a detailed scan of your teeth and turn it into a movable 3D image.
