We have all been there! When our Dentist spurts out company/brand names of the materials that he/she uses in the clinic, we start seeing stars as we are unaware of most these brand names. So, is it crucial for patients to know exactly what is being put in their mouth? The answer is the big YES!
Quality dental materials/products have the following advantages:
- Better treatment outcome
- Long time warranty
- Value for your money
- Lifetime of beautiful smile!
So how can we assure ourselves that we are getting what we paid for?
Since most of the quality materials come from US or European based companies, you as a patient should not hesitate to ask your dentist what brands are being used on you. We are well aware that in every field the markets are flooded with Chinese products which are cheap and of poor quality. This is true with respect to dental materials as well.
The most common Chinese products used in Dentistry are:
- Orthodontic braces
- Dental implants
- Dental composites/restorative materials
Most of these products do not have any FDI or ISO credits on them, which means to say that no proper research is done on these materials. Hence, this can be hazardous to your oral health!
It is important that the dentists are well aware of the International Standards needed for the materials to be used in their dental practice. At Zen Orthodontic and Dental Care, Dr. Anitha Alageshan uses the best of the materials when it comes to her patients. Some of the companies involved are as follows:
- 3M ESPE
- 3M Unitek
- American Orthodontics
- Ormco Corporation
- Dentsply Sirona
- Ultradent Products Inc.
- Ivoclar Vivadent AG
- Pascal International, Inc.
