Digital Dentistry: The Future is Now

Share this:

MINT HILL, NC – Technology has made a significant impact on our everyday life and has found its place in dentistry. You may have heard of a digital workflow or an all-digital dental practice, but what does that mean, and how does it impact your dental visits?

Digital dentistry involves the use of computer-assisted technology to aid in diagnosing and performing dental treatments. Digital tools that dentists use include digital x-rays, digital scanners, electronic records and scheduling, intraoral photographs, and much more.

4 Benefits of Digital Dentistry:

  1. More comfortable patient experience
    • No more gooey material to capture an accurate impression
  2. Track changes in gums and teeth over time
    • A digital record of your teeth will help identify preventative treatment to avoid unwanted changes, such as gum recession and tooth wear from grinding
  3. Improved patient education
    • Reviewing digital impressions and photos of the mouth help patients understand the condition of their teeth and gums
  4. Accurate treatment planning
    • From digital smile design to 3D imaging of your jaw, we now have better tools that allow us to make a more accurate diagnosis, leading to better treatment outcomes

At Dawson Modern Dentistry, digital dentistry has allowed us to have a significant impact on our patients’ health.
