Dentist In Auburn, Alabama Acquires Advanced Dental Tools

January 24, 2020 - /PressAdvantage/ - Bent Creek Dental, a dental clinic based out of Auburn, Alabama is excited to announce that they have acquired new, technologically advanced pieces of equipment that will help them provide the best dental care that money can buy. More information about the dental clinic can be found at the following link:

The first of the two pieces of equipment they have acquired is a CBCT machine. CBCT stands for “Cone Beam Computed Tomography” (but is also referred to as C-arm CT, cone beam volume CT, or flat panel CT) and is a medical imaging technique consisting of X-ray computed tomography where the X-Rays are divergent, forming a cone. CBCT has been described as the gold standard for imaging the oral and maxillofacial area because it uses as many as 600 distinct images to provide a full 3-dimensional view of the entire mouth and jaw.

The high resolution 3D images provided by a CBCT machine allow dentists to see many crucial details that are critically important to be aware of before dental surgery. According to Bent Creek Dental, CBCT machines are expensive pieces of equipment for any dentist, often costing as much as $90,000 or even more.

In addition to the CBCT machine, Bent Creek Dental has acquired an intra-oral scanner. Intra-oral scanners are devices that are used for capturing direct optical impressions in dentistry. These scanners allow dentists to create high-quality digital impressions of patients’ teeth in lifelike colors to use in the creation of crowns, appliances, clear aligners and so on.

Dr. Joshua Mathis of Bent Creek Dental says, "We use the intra-oral scanner, also known as a Medit Scanner, to improve the accuracy and speed of our work. We can use the scanner for crowns, bridges, Invisalign, night guards, implants and partial dentures. We have found the fit to be very accurate, and our patients appreciate not having to deal with more gooey impression materials. The scans from the Medit can be merged with our 3D X-Rays from the CBCT for precise planning of implant placement for our patients. The result is more precisely placed implants and faster appointments."

Aided by high quality, state of the art equipment, Bent Creek Dental provides a variety of dental services including but not limited to root canal treatments, dental crowns and bridges, dental implants, dentures, dental cleaning and pediatric dentistry.

The services provided by Dr. Joshua Matthis and his team at Bent Creek Dental have earned the clinic a lot of praise. On Google, they have a perfect rating of 5/5 Stars from over 200 reviews. In a recent review, Anna Hammond says that she had a, “Great experience. From start to finish, I actually enjoyed my visit to the dentist. The office is modern and clean. The women at the front desk are kind and welcoming. I was taken back right away, no wait time. I went in for a regular cleaning. They have TVs on the walls and the ceiling as a great distraction. I pretty much watched 1 episode of Property Brothers on HGTV and was done. My cleaning is easy and the dental hygienist, Mary Catherine, was gentle and kind. Thedoctor was nice and personable. I have already scheduled my next appointment. Thank you.”

In another review, Google Local Guide Samantha McIntosh says, “This place was wonderful! I had an infected tooth and, during my first visit, they were extra careful to not bump anything or cause any more pain. I went back for an extraction, and they did everything they could to minimize any pain. They checked multiple times to make sure I was completely numb, and the extraction was super quick. This place is awesome.”

Additionally, they encourage interested parties to get in touch with Dr. Joshua Mathis directly via email or phone. Bent Creek Dental also maintains a presence on Facebook where they frequently post updates, share media and communicate with their customers.

3-2-1-Cookoff! Astronauts to bake cookies with new test oven

Feb 24, 2020

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — Forget reheated, freeze-dried space grub. Astronauts are about to get a new test oven for baking chocolate chip cookies from scratch. The next delivery to the International Space Station — scheduled for liftoff this weekend — includes the Zero G Oven. Chocolate chip cookie dough is already up there, waiting to pop into this small electric oven designed for zero gravity. Sample cookies baked just this week are also launching from Virginia on Northrop Grumman's Cygnus capsule, for the six station astronauts. The experiment explores the possibility of making freshly baked items for space travelers. With...

NASA moves up 1st all-female spacewalk to fix power unit

Feb 24, 2020

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — NASA has moved up the first all-female spacewalk to this week because of a power system failure at the International Space Station. Astronauts Christina Koch (cook) and Jessica Meir (mere) will now venture out Thursday or Friday, instead of next Monday. A battery power controller failed over the weekend, prompting the change. The women will replace the broken component, rather than install new batteries, which was their original job. Last week, astronauts conducted two spacewalks to replace old space station batteries. They have three more spacewalks to go to finish the battery work. A battery-swapping spacewalk...

Museum of the Bible quietly replaces questioned artifact

Feb 24, 2020

OKLAHOMA CITY — The Museum of the Bible in Washington quietly replaced an artifact purported to be one of a handful of miniature Bibles that a NASA astronaut carried to the moon in 1971 after an expert questioned its authenticity. The move follows an announcement last year that at least five of 16 Dead Sea Scroll fragments that had been on display at the museum were found to be apparent fakes. The museum replaced the original microfilm Bible with one that was donated by an Oklahoma woman who wrote a book about the Apollo Prayer League, which arranged for Apollo...

No Deal: Auto workers strike against GM in contract dispute

Feb 24, 2020

DETROIT — More than 49,000 members of the United Auto Workers walked off General Motors factory floors or set up picket lines early Monday as contract talks with the company deteriorated into a strike. Workers shut down 33 manufacturing plants in nine states across the U.S., as well as 22 parts distribution warehouses. It wasn't clear how long the walkout would last, with the union saying GM has budged little in months of talks while GM said it made substantial offers including higher wages and factory investments. It's the first national strike by the union since a two-day walkout in...

Union votes to strike at General Motors' US plants

Feb 24, 2020

DETROIT — The United Auto Workers union announced Sunday that its roughly 49,000 workers at General Motors plants in the U.S. would go on strike just before midnight because contentious talks on a new contract had broken down. About 200 plant-level union leaders voted unanimously in favor of a walkout during a meeting Sunday morning in Detroit. Union leaders said the sides were still far apart on several major issues and they apparently weren't swayed by a GM offer to make new products at or near two of the four plants it had been planning to close, according to someone...
