Dentistry is a branch of medicine that has been around since the dawn of humanity. Our ancestors used sticks to scrub their teeth and flossed with animal hair! In fact, the ancient Babylonians believed that toothaches were caused by tiny “tooth worms” and the “dentist” would dig through a patient’s teeth in search of them. In the Middle Ages, your family dentist may have also been your family barber or blacksmith, so you can imagine the kinds of instruments he would have used.
Fortunately, dentistry has come a long way since those early days. Dental technology continues to evolve and our office is on the cutting edge. Our dentist, Dr. Roberto Macedo, uses digital dentistry to take clear and concise X-rays of your teeth and mouth and to take impressions of your teeth without the impression material which can be messy and taste horrible! Digital technology is also used to create your new dental work in a single day. Digital dentistry makes your visit to our office convenient and comfortable.
