Technology is daily developing and there are more and more advancements being made to further the dental industry. One of the latest and beneficial developments is digital dentistry. Digital dentistry has revolutionized how professional oral care is being conducted. It is helping visits to your dentist become more efficient, reliable, and safer. Using this new way of servicing patients, providing quality dental care has never been easier.
The main objective of digital dentistry is to use computer-based and digital technology to analyze, diagnose, and treat your oral cavity. From the sign in process for your appointment to electronic prescriptions, there are different types of digital dentistry tools available today.
The Types of Digital Dentistry
Dental professionals have previously used small, rounded mirrors to examine the inside of patients’ mouths. They are now starting to transition into using miniature cameras to use in place of this. One of the major benefits of using these cameras are its magnifying abilities. Being able to enlarge the mouth can allow dentists to identify any potential issues easier. This also helps make it possible for dentists to share what they see with their patients to widen their understanding of their oral health. The images captured are used to pair crowns and bridges to a patients’ teeth, which is another perk.
Intraoral Scanning and CAD (Computer-aided design)
Impression material was used for molds to create what is needed for your teeth prior to this innovative technology. This mold consisted of a gooey substance placed in a mouthguard that patients would have to keep in their mouths until it hardened. A drawback of this was that it was messy. Now with intraoral scanning, the scanners are able to take 3D images of your mouth. These images are utilized to design dentures, veneers, crowns, bridges, and etc. At Dental Made Easy, we use these scanners to aid in making dental procedures more convenient and proficient.
There are many other types of digital dentistry that are now becoming used in the dental health field. This new technology is setting a new standard in place of how to treat patients. They are aiding dental professionals’ efforts in providing the best service as well as keeping up with the times. Dental Made Easy intends to continue and expand in our use of digital dentistry to do our best in helping serve our clientele. Come and visit us today!
