Digital dental x-rays have radically changed how oral care is administered. They are significantly more efficient and safer than traditional x-rays since they limit your radiation exposure. Digital dental x-rays are known to produce 80% less radiation than conventional x-rays.
Dr. Celso Seretti at Seretti Dental uses digital dental X-rays to offer his patients a comfortable and practical treatment experience.
Types of Digital Dental X-rays
Digital dental x-rays take both intraoral (inside the mouth) and extraoral (outside) scans.
Intraoral Scans are as follows: Bite-wing x-rays where you need to bite down on a sensor to take an image of your bite, and Periapical x-rays where an x-ray of your entire teeth from the crown to the root is taken.
What Are the Advantages of Digital Dental X-Rays?
Unlike traditional X-rays, digital dental x-rays offer several advantages:
High-Quality Images: The scans dentists receive on digital x-rays are considerably higher compared to normal x-rays.
Lesser Radiation: Digital x-rays emit 90% less radiation.
Transferring Records Is Easy: Sending dental records to new dentists with digital x-rays than regular x-rays.
No Wait Time: You can get appointments instantly as getting x-rays need no extra prep time.
Ready-to-Use: Images from dental x-rays are ready for viewing instantly.
Better Care: Receiving high-quality images in a shorter time helps dentists provide better and more efficient care for your condition.
Environment Friendly: Digital x-rays don’t require the use of chemicals to get the images.
What to Expect During a Digital Digital X-ray Procedure?
Though the process between a digital x-ray and a conventional x-ray is similar, the way the output is derived differs. Here’s how digital radiography works:
A sensor is inserted into your mouth to help with capturing high-definition images of your teeth. The sensor is an electronic device that instantly relays the x-ray images onto a computer screen to be assessed by your dentist.
E4D Same-Day Dental Technology
Modern technology has come up with some of the most incredible and innovative solutions in dentistry. E4D technology is one of them, providing an all-in-one scanner, fabricating unit, and design center made particularly for fabricating overlays, porcelain crowns, inlays, onlays, and veneers. Traditionally, it takes more than one appointment and even weeks to provide the patients with such services. But with the help of E4D dental technology, you can eliminate this waiting period.
What is E4D Dentistry?
Under this technology, a laser scanning device is used to capture an accurate impression of your teeth. The data from the scan is further transferred, thereby using the technology to create a 3D CAD render. This enables the dentists to digitally create the restorations they require.
It also has a CAM system that mills the design using dental-grade porcelain, hence providing same-day porcelain crowns and cutting your time and effort of visiting the dentist for multiple consultations.
How Does E4D Dentistry Work?
The dentist will take a digital impression of your teeth which will be used to fabricate your new dental crown. Once the porcelain is milled, it is then polished and customized to match all your cosmetic requirements. Now, it is fired in an oven for around 15 minutes. The porcelain is then placed on your toot, checked for a suitable fit, and cemented into your mouth. The restoration process takes 60-90 minutes to complete and doesn’t require any metal wire fitting. Once this procedure is performed, you can return home with a smile makeover completed in just one dental consultation.
What are the Benefits of E4D Same-Day Dentistry?
- Traditionally porcelain crown treatment takes a long time and multiple visits to complete. But with the help of this technology, you can get this treatment on the same day and in a single appointment only.
- Same-day dentistry provides you a customized treatment option. Your new crown will be fabricated to match the exact shape of your teeth. Not only this, but the crown can also be customized in the desired shade of white.
- The use of laser technology scans the dimensions of your teeth and makes sure that the crown fits you properly without disrupting your aesthetic appearance.
- The porcelain crowns created from E4D technology match traditional lab-made crowns in terms of their overall strength. All you need to do is to follow optimum dental hygiene, and the crown will last for years.
