Our team at Cornerstone Dental understands that you may be hesitant about committing to dental treatments. Dr. Ryan Hussong practices conservative dentistry and won’t recommend a treatment that is not beneficial to your oral health. However, if you’re still uncertain, our ToothIQ™ system can answer all your questions.
Confident Dental Care
Dr. Hussong uses ToothIQ™ to make sure you feel confident about the dental care you’re receiving. The technology uses detailed drawings and animations to show you the before and after effects of treatment. If you have any of the following questions, you may benefit from ToothIQ™ education:
- “Is the recommended treatment really necessary?”
- “What will happen if I don’t receive treatment?”
- “I don’t understand my recommended treatment.”
- “What will my smile look like after treatment?”
Explaining the Necessity of your Treatment
ToothIQ™ explains what your teeth will look like if left untreated. Delaying dental treatment can worsen the condition of your mouth. For example, tooth decay can deepen and require more extensive procedures to repair your teeth. Additionally, bacteria from gum disease can enter your bloodstream and contribute to tooth loss and health complications. Our short presentation videos are used to educate our patients about preventive, restorative, and cosmetic dental care. We want to make sure you fully understand the process involved in treating your mouth.
Revealing your Future Smile
ToothIQ™ can also be used to predict the future of your smile. Our illustrations will explain how the treatment works to improve your smile and oral health. The images also provide a preview of what your smile will look like after the recommended procedure. Additionally, ToothIQ™ videos show you proper post-treatment care so you can keep your smile healthy and beautiful.
The ToothIQ system provides a visual aid to predict the outcome of your smile. If you have unanswered questions about your oral health, contact Dr. Hussong at Cornerstone Dental at (515) 984-6001.
