It’s that time of year again. The Number one category for a new year’s resolution is personal health care. Lose weight. Exercise more. Remove a bunion or two. You get the idea. If you are thinking of going dental, here are my favorite picks for making it more effective and comfortable: 1. The Dentalvibe: a bone and tissue vibrating wand that helps in giving painless injections. 2. Digital USB Intraoral Cameras: fiber optic cameras that show live images of your teeth on a computer for early diagnosis of disease. Images are now email-able. 3. Ziconia implant abutments: porcelain posts that attach the implants to their respective crowns; their white color stops the gray-gum line problem found with metal abutments.
