What Is Digital Dentistry?

Digital dentistry involves using high-tech equipment to provide advanced imaging and treatment. Our practice employs an iTero digital intraoral scanner and digital X-rays.

What Is Digital Dentistry?

Understand Your Oral Health

The enhanced images from digital dentistry equipment allow your practitioner to learn more about your oral health.

Plan Safer Procedures

Digital X-rays allow the dentist to plan root canals and decay removal using highly detailed visual data. The dentist has a better idea what is going on beneath the surface before starting the procedure.

Save Time

Digital intraoral scanners are much faster than traditional impressions. They also provide better-quality depictions of the soft and hard tissues inside the mouth.

Faster and More Accurate Diagnoses

Digital images provide rich diagnostic information, allowing dentists to make treatment decisions more efficiently. Digital X-ray scanners can see emerging cavities that film X-rays may miss.

Better Patient and Dentist Experience

Patients also appreciate the benefits of digital dentistry. They no longer have to sit through messy impressions or lengthy X-ray procedures when their dentist can use a digital scanner. Dentists can work more efficiently, meaning that patients have shorter appointments.

Digital Technology In Our Office

Digital Intraoral Scanner. The digital intraoral scanner makes a 3-D map of the hard and soft tissues inside the mouth. It replaces traditional impressions. It helps dentists plan restorations in much less time.

Digital X-Rays. A digital X-ray provides greater detail than an ordinary film X-ray. The dentist can easily zoom in to see hidden problems below the gumline or inside a tooth. The dentist understands the anatomy of the patient’s teeth and can plan a more efficient procedure.

Other Office Technology. Our office employs many types of technology that benefit the patient by offering improved diagnosis and care.

Why Choose Fort Collins Dental Center?

Frequently Asked Questions About Digital Dentistry

What is the difference between a digital X-ray and a film X-ray?
A standard X-ray is fine for diagnosing tooth decay and other common issues, but a digital X-ray provides a greater wealth of detail. The images are ready at the click of a mouse without waiting for film to develop. Digital X-rays also use far less radiation than their film counterparts.
What are the advantages of the iTero scanner?
The iTero scanner provides vital information that helps the dentist explain oral health issues to the patient. Sharing this data allows the patient to become more informed about the choices they may need to make as well as showing them the condition of their teeth in sharp, clear 3-D images.
Is the digital intraoral scanner comfortable to use?
The scanner provides excellent patient comfort. It is a small handheld device that easily moves around the mouth. It is smaller than many other dental instruments.
