Digital dentistry is a great alternative to traditional methods because it offers more accurate, faster, and minimally invasive results. It uses dental technologies that incorporate computer-guided imagery to perform dental procedures rather than using traditional tools.
Digital dentistry at Folsom Dental Esthetics ensures improved accuracy, increased comfort, and more efficient treatment. It can also reduce overall treatment costs by eliminating the need for costly materials and lab work.
Digital dentistry (CAD/CAM) was first invented in 1973 by a French professor, Francoise Duret, who is known as the godfather of digital dentistry.
Digital dentistry is widely used in dental crown treatments in various ways. It is used to take digital scans of the patient’s teeth, which are then used to fabricate 3D models of teeth. These models are used to design and mill the crowns, which are then dyed to match the patient’s existing teeth. With digital dentistry, our dentists can complete an entire procedure within a single visit.
Digital dentistry has transformed the veneer placement process. The process is now easier, quicker, and more accurate. This technology has made it possible to create digital impressions and scans of the patient’s mouth, which can be used to make custom-fit veneers. It also allows us to design and create veneers in-house, allowing for a more precise fit.
Our dentists use digital dentistry to design and create inlay and onlay. This process starts with a digital scan of the teeth, which is used to develop a 3D model. This model is then used to develop a precise CAD/CAM design that is sent to a dental lab to mill the restoration piece.
Digital dentistry allows for more efficient, accurate, and comfortable dental treatments for patients.
This technology helps reduce the time required to carry out specific dental procedures, provide an accurate diagnosis, and provide treatment. Moreover, using cutting-edge technology and digital dentistry tools like a 3D printer can help cut costs by eliminating the need for some physical materials like impressions and X-rays.
Manual instruments and tools can be uncomfortable or even painful for some patients. Digital dentistry solves this problem by eliminating the need for these tools, which helps improve customer experience.
Modern IT solutions can help reduce costs, increase efficiency, and improve customer satisfaction, thanks to the CAD/CAM software that helps improve communication and diagnosis.
Digital dentistry provides more accurate results, allowing for better diagnosis and treatment.
The most common digital technologies used in digital dentistry include digital X-rays, 3D printing, digital scanners, and CAD/CAM systems.
