Digital dentistry uses computer-based technologies, like electronic sensors and design software to diagnose and treat oral health problems. Specifically, digital dentistry makes oral health care faster, safer, and more comfortable than ever.
Undergoing digital dentistry at WPD Dental Group offers various benefits, including:
Digital dentistry also prevents the need for more invasive procedures. Thanks to advances in diagnostic imaging, the team at WPD Dental Group can identify cavities, gum disease, and other underlying issues without making incisions.
The team at WPD Dental Group offers several types of digital dentistry, including:
Digital X-rays use electronic sensors and small amounts of ionizing radiation to capture photos of your tooth roots, jaw, and alveolar bone, which anchors your teeth. Digital X-rays provide a safe, effective, and noninvasive way to identify underlying problems invisible to the eye.
Intraoral scanners use a combination of high-definition cameras and digital sensors to identify potential issues with your oral health. They also provide a convenient and mess-free way to take digital impressions for dental restorations, like crowns, bridges, or dentures.
Digitally guided implant surgery uses digital imaging technology and specialized software to place dental implants with precision. Digitally guided surgery reduces the risk of common complications, like infection and implant failure.
Oral cancer doesn’t always present obvious symptoms. Digital fluorescence imaging can identify abnormal cells early on when they’re most likely to respond to treatment.
Anyone who wants to improve their oral health can benefit from digital dentistry.
After reviewing your dental records, discussing your goals, and an oral exam, your WPD Dental Group provider makes treatment recommendations.
