How does digital imaging improve dental treatment?
Dr. Kyle Radin, dentist at Good Health Dental in Solon, Cleveland:
“With traditional x-rays, it took quite some time to get the images ready. Digital imaging has a faster processing time which is beneficial to the patient and the dentist. It also provides better image quality. Obviously, clarity and details in dental imaging is very important. Ae are now able to provide an exact diagnosis and determine the needed treatment. Last but not least, digital imaging requires less resources. Below an overview how digital imaging improves specific dental treatments.”
Carestream digital imaging technology plays a crucial role in the successful placement of dental implants. With detailed 3D scans provided by the Carestream system, dental professionals can accurately assess the quantity and quality of the jawbone, ensuring precise implant placement. This allows for a more predictable and efficient treatment process, minimizing the risk of complications and enhancing the longevity of the implants. Additionally, the advanced imaging capabilities aid in the virtual planning of implant surgery, facilitating precise angulation and positioning of the implants for optimal aesthetics and functional outcomes.
Carestream digital imaging greatly benefits orthodontic treatment, particularly with clear aligner systems like Invisalign. The detailed 3D scans produced by the Carestream system enable dentists and orthodontists to assess the alignment of teeth, jaw relationships, and occlusion with high precision. This information is essential for creating accurate treatment plans and designing customized clear aligners that gradually and effectively move the teeth into their desired positions. The digital imaging technology allows for enhanced treatment visualization and monitoring, ensuring the progress is on track and enabling timely adjustments when necessary.
Root Canal Treatment
Carestream digital imaging enhances the success and efficiency of root canal treatment. By capturing high-resolution images of the tooth and surrounding structures, the Carestream system aids in diagnosing and visualizing the root canal anatomy, identifying the location and extent of infection or damage. This detailed information guides endodontists during treatment, ensuring thorough cleaning and shaping of the root canals, as well as precise placement of root canal filling materials. The ability to view accurate images also allows for effective post-treatment assessment and monitoring of the healing process.
Digital imaging technology, such as that offered by Carestream, is invaluable in the fabrication of dental veneers. With precise scans, dental professionals can capture detailed impressions of the teeth, providing a virtual model for designing and creating customized veneers. This digital workflow ensures a precise fit and optimal aesthetics, as the digital images can be manipulated to simulate the final result and allow for any necessary adjustments before the fabrication of the veneers. The advanced imaging capabilities of the Carestream system contribute to the successful outcome and natural appearance of dental veneer restorations.
Carestream digital imaging technology greatly enhances the process of creating dentures. The detailed 3D scans obtained by the Carestream system allow for accurate impressions of the oral structures, capturing the shape and contours of the jawbone, gums, and surrounding teeth. This information is essential for designing and fabricating dentures that offer a precise fit, improved comfort, and enhanced aesthetics. With digital imaging, dental professionals can visualize the denture setup digitally, ensuring proper occlusion, esthetics, and speech function. The advanced capabilities of Carestream digital imaging contribute to the creation of well-fitting, functional, and natural-looking dentures for patients.
