Digital Dentistry is created combining the computer technology and modern dentistry. The treatment duration is shortened with 3-D screening.
Digital dentistry uses technologic products, including all solutions, which facilitate diagnosis and treatment planning with 2 and 3 dimension, reliable, high quality resolution screening methods. Panoramic X-Ray becomes a routine diagnosis tool which used to be the most important and irreplaceable tool in digital dentistry.
Digital Panoramic X-Ray
Radiography method is very crucial in terms of identifying complications, occur on teeth. All of the teeth in a mouth and all kinds of problems in the chin system could be observed in one X-ray film with panoramic X-Ray. X-Rays are very important on identifying cists or tumors in maxilla, identifying the level of bone losses and identifying any of breaks or decays, which cannot be seen by visual examination.
Before all kinds of surgeries, implant treatment or orthodontic operations, radiography should be applied. Operating X-Ray in digital atmosphere reduces the radiation absorption and increases the resolution quality. This is highly effective on positive results of the treatment, as well. The X-Rays, also help teeth and chin system to be seen through 4 different positions. This methods, which is more quality compared to other methods, could be also applied to children.
ADVANTAGES OF DIGITAL PANORAMIC X-RAY SYSTEM
Dental Cad/Cam systems is a computer supported modern technology in dentistry which enables dentist to take digital measures, have scans and make related restorations directly on the patient’s mouth.
Using this system, upper restoration for the tooth, which treatment is applied to, could also be completed in the same treatment session. The biggest advantage of this system is to complete the treatment in the shortest amount of time, like one session, as well as the treatment is also esthetic in terms of both patient and surgeon.
Another important advantage of the system is to eliminate vomiting reflex, which is experienced in normal treatment methods while taking measures of the mouth due to using measurement tools applied inside the mouth.
Some of the treatments, operated using this system, could be listed as follows:
Smile design, which becomes one of the most essential parts of esthetic dentistry, could be applied with modern digital dentistry easier and faster ways.
The final expected view of the face is shown to the patient in the session, when the planning is made, and this opportunity is very beneficial for both the patient and surgeon.
Convenience and esthetic is achieved thanks to 3 dimension view, shown to the patient, so that the patient is able to explain all of her expectations from this operation and this convenience of computer supported programs move the dentistry to a new level.
