What Is Digital Dentistry?
Digital dentistry involves using advanced dental technology to acquire 2-D and 3-D images for diagnostic and treatment purposes. Digital imaging provides accurate, detailed data that dentists use to make treatment plans and diagnose potential problems.
The Itero digital intraoral scanner takes photos of a patient's mouth and compiles them into a 3-D model that the dentist can use to plan procedures and help you understand your oral anatomy. It is very helpful for patients to specifically see where cavities are and the necessity of treatment on a 3-D image.
The Itero can also provide better-quality impressions than gooey impression molding, making it faster and more comfortable for the patient.
The Omnicam is a second 3-D scanner used for a more comfortable patient experience. The Omnicam helps Dr. Skoulas scan restorative preparations, such as a crown, with precision to communicate her conclusions to laboratories. All of this additional technology leads to faster, smoother, better fitting restorations.
Digital X-rays have several advantages over their film predecessors. They use much less radiation than film X-rays of the past, making them safe for patients. Digital X-rays capture highly detailed images, allowing dentists to zoom in and see problems early so that treatment can be completed at a faster rate than with old film. This leads to needing less major treatment over your lifespan.
