What Is Digital Dentistry?

Digital dentistry involves using advanced technologies to benefit patient care. Innovative equipment used in dentistry includes imaging innovations like CBCT (Cone Beam Computed Tomography), iTero scanners, intraoral cameras, and digital X-rays.

Benefits of Digital Dentistry

Improves Diagnostic Ability.

When Dr. Marcus uses digital dentistry tools, she can diagnose dental issues earlier and achieve better treatment.

Enhances Procedure Accuracy

The CBCT scanner and digital X-rays make dental implant surgeries safer and more accurate.

Enables Better Communication

With digital dentistry, the dentist can easily share images with the patient without a waiting period. The intraoral camera, CBCT, iTero scanner, and digital X-ray produce highly detailed images, allowing the patient to understand their diagnosis better.

Procedures Offered

i-CAT Cone Beam 3D Dental Imaging. This award-winning technology provides complete head, neck, and oral cavity imaging. Dr. Marcus can easily examine your anatomy using this equipment and safely plan procedures like dental implant surgery.

Intraoral Camera. Our intraoral camera takes real-time digital images of your mouth's soft and hard tissues. Dr. Marcus can use this information to plan your dental care, clear aligner treatment or share images with you during a dental appointment.

Digital X-Rays. Digital X-rays let the dentist see your teeth's internal anatomy in fine detail. For more effective treatment, Dr. Marcus can diagnose dental issues like cavities, cysts, and abscesses at early stages. Digital X-rays use significantly less radiation than traditional film X-rays, making the procedure safer for all patients.

Frequently Asked Questions About Digital Dentistry

How does a cone beam scanner work?
A cone beam or CBCT scanner rotates a cone-shaped X-ray beam in a circle around the patient's head. The scanner produces many high-resolution digital images, which the software compiles into a 3-D rendering. Cone beam scanners enable the dentist to visualize your head and neck anatomy in three dimensions.
Why are digital X-rays so much better than traditional X-rays?
Digital X-rays are faster, more accurate, and safer than traditional X-rays thanks to the less radiation needed.
How often do I need to receive X-rays?
In most cases, we will order X-rays once a year. This practice enables us to catch tooth decay and other conditions before they become severe.
How can an intraoral scanner help plan for clear aligners?
Intraoral scanners enable Dr. Marcus to build a digital model of your teeth and gums. She uses this information and proprietary software to plan tooth movement and create aligners.
Will digital dentistry save time?
Digital dentistry procedures are fast and accurate. They can save you time in the dentist's chair and make you see results sooner.
