Interview

Interview 

Sydnie hochman's insight:

This is an interview of my dentist Nelson V. Berardinelli, D.M.D, M.A.G.D. 

 

When did you enter the dental field? 

        1." I started dental school at university of Pittsburgh in 1976."


From your experience, how has technology changed?  

 

1. "The biggest change is digital radiography. No film or developer needed. Picture is instantly on the computer and it is one-eighth the amount of radiation as a conventional x-ray. Intra-oral camera- patient can see everything the dentist sees on the monitor. Great for patient education. Loupes ( magnified glasses) with filter optic light source attached. Makes working in the mouth much easier. It improves vision- especially in the back of the mouth. Electric drills- a large improvement over the air driven drills most dentists use. They are much more powerful ( high torque) and are much quieter than air turbine drills which the patients really appreciate as it makes there appointment more comfortable. Automatic root canals- you can now clean out root canals ( take the nerve out of the tooth) using the drill instead of by hand filing. It makes it much easier for the patient. Also this technology speeds up the procedure significantly."

 

What types of materials have you seen change?      

 

 1. " The main changes have been in the materials I use to fill (restore teeth). We use more cosmetic ( white fillings) on back teeth. These fillers( materials) keep getting perfected and stronger. There are also available in a larger variety of colors."
