The American Experience is Changing.

At Timothy Kitzmiller DDS we’ve been amazed by some of the breakthrough in dental technology. One of the biggest is how we deal with cavities. For many of us, having to get a cavity taken can range anywhere from being a nuisance to a terrifying ordeal. Especially when we’re younger, the sound of a drill could be frightening. Of course, many of us learn that cavities are a part of life. Sometimes, no matter how hard you try, cavities start to form.

But are we always going to have to drill them out? Some scientists don’t think so. In London, researches have been experimenting with new techniques to deal with cavities. In fact, some people don’t think we’ll be drilling much longer. One of the reasons why that is a new technique called Electrically Accelerated and Enhanced Demineralization will take the place of drilling. That’s just a fancy phrase for saying that soon, the minerals that make up your teeth will be replaceable.

Instead of drilling, doctors will use electric currents to push minerals into the damaged tooth. As they do this, it will allow your dentist to make the tooth solid again. No drills necessary! That could mean a lot less worried children in the future.
