Benefits of Digital Dentistry

Benefits of Digital Dentistry

The dental industry has changed over the years and many new digital or computer assisted tools are being implemented in dental offices. Traditional diagnostic and restorative methods have slowly been replaced by more advanced dental technologies for higher quality treatments and results. Digital dentistry is the future of dentistry and its benefits serve both our patients and our staff.

More accurate, faster, and better procedures

Compared to using traditional impression trays, our dental office now use intraoral scanners to create digital impressions for more precise and beautiful restorations. They provide a more pleasant experience for patients and eliminate potential gagging from the treatment. Using CAD/ CAM (computer assisted design/computer assisted manufacturing) technology, it is possible to produce a wide range of dental restorations including crowns, veneers, bridges, and implant frameworks in a single visit. 3D models are created from the scans along with colour analysis and customizations to match the surrounding teeth for a more natural look. This advancement helps to reduce the procedural costs and shortens treatment time for patients.

Better and safer diagnosis of oral diseases/problems

Intraoral cameras can easily show the interior of the mouth and produce images of teeth and gum structures. Digital X-rays can also be taken inside the mouth, producing high resolution images and 80-90% less radiation compared to traditional dental x-rays. Both technologies capture images and store them electronically. We can go over these images with patients so they have a better understanding of their oral health and how different treatments can be beneficial. These technologies are essential, preventative, and diagnostic tools that provide great details on periodontal disease, cavities, and chipped or broken teeth.

Modern Patient Management Software offers our patients and office the following benefits:

  • Better communication between dental labs and other medical providers

Once a digital scan has been made, all images can be saved under the patient's profile for future use. Digital impressions can be sent to our lab quickly and any potential issues with the restoration can be addressed directly with the dentist. This direct and prompt digital communication allows for quicker turnaround time as compared to the past. Moreover, digital scans can also be shared with authorized providers across multiple health care settings for professional use.

Digital dentistry continues to be adopted across the industry and is indeed the future of dentistry. With the advances in new dental technologies, patients can benefit from improved quality, comfort, and speed of dental treatments. Our office is proud to embrace these technologies in order provide better care for our patients and their families.
