Advanced technology helps medical and dental professionals diagnose health conditions and plan for treatment. Modern dentistry has afforded patients with technology that makes oral healthcare more individualized. It also increases the accuracy of treatment planning and common dental procedures. Our dentist invests in the latest technology like 3D imaging so that our patients can enjoy excellent care.
Without diagnostic equipment, determining the presence of potential issues is much more difficult. This is because a dentist would have to solely rely on his or her eyes. Diagnostics like X-rays and 3D imaging can reveal a host of concerns that would not otherwise be noticed.
These kind of images give oral health professionals a view of the roots of teeth, their placement, the presence of caries, and the health of the jawbones. Diagnostics can reveal issues like bone atrophy, problems with the roots of teeth, and infections. The sooner issues are identified and diagnosed, the sooner a patient can receive the treatment he or she needs.
Improved Treatment Planning
Diagnostics improve the process of planning a patient’s treatment. Since 3D and X-ray images are much clearer in digital format, oral health professionals can see structures in great detail. Moreover, the detail provided by diagnostic images can help dentists become familiar with a person’s unique oral anatomy. This means that treatment planning is more individualized. 3D imaging, for example, is incredibly beneficial when placing dental implants.
Reduced Waste and Patient Convenience
Digital imaging is very helpful for reducing waste. This is because images are sent to high resolution monitors instead of being produced on radiographic film. Radiographic film is bulky and expensive to store. By cutting down on waste, we all can do our part to improve our environment. Digital images are also convenient for patients because they are easily transferred to others. This is beneficial for a person visiting a specialist for treatment or getting a second opinion.
