While digital dentistry is a broad topic, it ultimately refers to the use of digital methods in place of traditional techniques for dental procedures. All too often, dental restoration remakes are the result of inaccurate impression molds. Traditional methods of creating dental molds for crowns and other dental restorations are often imprecise, resulting in poorly fitting restorations, wasted time and money in materials, and unhappy and uncomfortable patients.
As a result, many dental professionals are joining the digital dentistry evolution, adopting the use of new equipment. Take for example film-based products and procedures — these have been replaced by digital imaging sensors and digital X-ray technology. But it doesn’t stop there. Digital Dentistry allows your dentist to have greater precision, greater speed, greater aesthetics, greater quality and greater comfort.
