There is so much we take for granted. Even in dentistry, there are things that we practically cannot imagine never having been around. For example, did you know that the first reclining dental chair was not introduced until 1958? That made an enormous impact on the way dentists treated patients. In 1957, the S. S. White Company introduced the first clinically successful high-speed hand piece, which made it possible for teeth to be much more easily and quickly prepared than previously. Today, high-speed handpieces operate at more than 300,000 rpms, or faster than a jet engine. The advances in dental technology continue at a rapid pace. At the Keller dentist, Distinguished Dental in Keller, TX, Dr. Sheri McIntosh and her team offer up-to-date services that are on the cutting edge of technology.
