What is a Digital Dental Practice and How can it Benefit You?
Many dentists are adopting new digital technologies. Digital x-rays are a good example; they reduce time and radiation exposure dramatically for patients compared with traditional x-ray film. At Friedman Dentistry, we have now transitioned to a total digital approach in every facet of patient care. New digital workflows have improved our precision, reduced chair time and ensured that patients receive the most comfortable experience possible. Our motto is "Experience the Difference" and at Friedman Dentistry, going totally digital has elevated our ability to improve patient comfort even further than before. That makes patients very happy and it puts a big smile on our face as well.
Digital Impressions: Nobody enjoys dental impressions because the materials are gooey and often cause gagging. Digital impressions with our iTero laser are highly accurate and gag-free. Impressions are as quick and easy as photographs of your teeth. Seeing your scan in 3D helps you to better understand the condition of your teeth and gums.
Digital Photography / Videography: Monitoring oral health and making an accurate diagnosis requires documentation or oral conditions beyond what can be determined by x-rays alone. We include high-resolution digital photography and videography to supplement patient records. Subtle changes to gum tissues, tooth structure or existing dental restorations can be detected by comparing photos and video over time. The earlier we identify a potential problem, the easier and less costly corrective measure can be.
Digital CAD-CAM: Historically, dental laboratories fabricate crowns, bridges, veneers, night guards, dentures, etc. Dentists often complain about poor fit, poor color, poor esthetics and late lab delivery all of which are problematic. However, computer assisted design software and computer assisted milling machines are replacing lab procedures done by hand. Our in-house Versamill 5X200 allows us to fabricate all types of dental restorations with superb accuracy and control. We are now “off the grid” from dental labs and our professional fees have been reduced since switching to CAD-CAM manufacturing.
Digital Local Anesthesia: Many patients report high anxiety associated with dental anesthetic injections. Research reflects that fear of injections prevents a large segment of the population from seeking regular dental care. At Friedman Dentistry, we have changed that perception with the aid of a computer controlled, digital device for administering local anesthesia. The Wand® utilizes precision technology that makes a painful injection a thing of the past and often without any sensation of numbness to the lips or face.
