Digital dentistry is the use of dental technology and devices that utilize digital or computer-controlled components. Digital dentistry encompasses a wide range of services, including:
- Intraoral and extraoral photography
- Digital panoramic x-rays
- Cancer-screening tools
- Digital radiography
- Computer-aided implant adaptation and alignment
- Use of lasers
- Digital guided surgery
- Shade matching
- Practice and patient record management
Digital dentistry offers a myriad of benefits, including decreasing radiation exposure for both the patient and the dentist by replacing film x-rays with digital x-rays. These services additionally allow dental teams to communicate with each other in a more effective way because all images, patient files, and x-rays are stored digitally. Not only do digital records enhance communication between practices, but they also allow for the diagnosis and evaluation of more difficult anatomies.
