Digital Dentistry

We are living in the digital age and digital dentistry is here to stay.xrays

Most state-of-the-art dental practices now use digital x-rays, also called radiographs, instead of the old fashioned x-ray films. Digital x-rays give sharp, beautiful images instantly. No dark room with chemicals and waiting for the film to develop and the digital technology has reduced the radiation to incredibly low levels. Flying across the country actually exposes you to more radiation than a full set of digital dental x-rays. The fact that the images are instant

Digital technology has also come to a part of the dental visit that many patients dread – the impression. No more hard trays filled with goop that makes you gag. Digital technology allows dentists to scan the inside of the mouth, providing a cleaner and more accurate impression of the teeth. This digital impression can be used in-office, along with CEREC, to create a dental crown, inlay or onlay, in just one visit. CEREC utilizes CAD/CAM technology to create accurate and aesthetically beautiful restorations.

Digital technology in the dental office includes keeping those digital x-rays and digital impressions in digital patient files. This is truly an exciting time to be a dentist and each of these digital enhancements has only made dental visits more comfortable for the patient.
