Digital scans in dentistry involve the use of advanced imaging technology to create detailed and precise digital models of the oral cavity. These scans provide 3D images, which are invaluable for various dental procedures, from diagnosis to treatment planning and monitoring.
We are committed to providing our patients with the latest advancements in dental technology to ensure the highest quality of care and patient experience.
Digital scans have revolutionised the way we diagnose, plan, and treat various dental conditions. Our exceptional team of dentists is dedicated to integrating cutting-edge digital scanning technology to improve accuracy, comfort, and precision in your dental care.
Benefits of Digital Scans
- Enhanced Accuracy: Digital scans provide highly accurate and detailed images of the teeth, gums, and jaw, allowing for precise diagnosis and treatment planning.
- Comfortable Experience: Digital scans are non-invasive and do not require uncomfortable traditional impressions, making the experience more pleasant for patients.
- Faster Results: Digital scans produce instant results, eliminating the need for the time-consuming process of creating physical moulds.
- Effective Communication: Digital scans allow for better communication between the dental team and the patient, with visual aids that make it easier to understand diagnoses and treatment options.
- Minimised Radiation Exposure: Digital scans use significantly lower levels of radiation compared to traditional X-rays, prioritising patient safety.
Applications of Digital Scans
Digital scans are used in a variety of dental procedures, including:
- Orthodontics: Digital scans are used for precise orthodontic planning and to create custom aligners or braces.
- Implant Dentistry: Scans help determine the optimal implant placement, ensuring a secure and functional result.
- Restorative Dentistry: Digital scans are used to create crowns, bridges, and veneers with exceptional accuracy and fit.
- Periodontics: They aid in the diagnosis and monitoring of gum diseases and the planning of gum surgery.
- Oral Surgery: Digital scans assist oral surgeons in planning complex procedures, such as wisdom teeth extractions and jaw surgeries.
The Digital Scan Process
The process of getting a digital scan in dentistry typically involves the following steps:
- Consultation: Your dentist will discuss the need for a digital scan based on your specific condition or treatment plan.
- Scan: During the scan, a handheld scanner or cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) machine is used to capture 3D images of the oral structures.
- Analysis: The digital images are instantly available for analysis, diagnosis, and treatment planning.
- Treatment: Based on the scan results, your dentist will recommend and proceed with the appropriate treatment.
