Digital Intraoral Scanner
Digital Impressions (also known as 3-D intraoral scanning) are the latest technology in capturing a replica of the mouth. By using a wand-like tool connected to a computer and advanced software, a this creates a virtual model of the mouth. These devices are extremely patient friendly. They eliminate the uncomfortable, messy impression-taking process. They also shorten prosthesis delivery time, because transfer of the file and reduced laboratory procedures shorten the total prosthesis fabrication time. It also allows for the possibility to show the patient a 3D-impression of their teeth on a screen, right after the impression has been made. Digital impressions offer advantages over conventional impressions because digital impressions produce more accurate detail than conventional impressions.
Our office uses computers to help capture, store and transmit dental radiographs. Digital X-rays are safer than traditional radiographs. They emit about 90% less radiation and require no harsh developing chemicals. Unlike conventional film which may take between three and five minutes to process, digital images are immediately available for viewing. The images are displayed in a large format on the screen, in comparison with the small films that are viewed on a small light box. With digital images, technical errors often can be corrected to provide an optimal radiograph without having to make another exposure. The dentist can use digital magnification to enhance specific problem areas of a tooth, as well as alter brightness and contrast in the image. Because the images are stored on the computer, they can be compared easily with future dental radiographs to see if and how conditions have changed. Digital radiographs can be electronically transmitted to insurance companies and specialists.
There are a variety of uses for lasers in the field of dentistry. Lasers can be used for cavity removal, teeth whitening, gum reshaping, and to harden bonding materials used in fillings. In addition, lasers are used in periodontal care to remove bacteria from periodontal pockets. The use of laser technology has helps us to provide treatment with less postoperative pain and increased healing.
In order for us to accurately make a diagnosis, a small camera is utilized to capture close-up images of your dental conditions. This technology allows our practice to view clear, precise images of your mouth, teeth and gums. With these enlarged images, we can see details that may be missed by standard mirror examinations. This can mean faster diagnosis with less chair-time for you. Intraoral cameras also enable our office to save your images in our computer system to provide a permanent record of treatments.
By keeping your records in digital format, also known as electronic medical record (EMR), our office can provide efficient, coordinated, safe and high-quality care. The EMR helps our office staff quick access to a patient's record and reference the information needed to schedule appointments and answer any billing questions. They can also easily update the record with changes in your medical history, address or insurance carrier.
