Digital Dentistry Q & A
What is digital dentistry?
Digital dentistry describes the technological innovations developed in the field in recent years that enable the Lone Star Dental Care team to provide state-of-the-art diagnostics and treatments to their patients.
When it comes to dentistry, nothing's more important than having the benefits of a practice that uses cutting-edge technology. It's this technology that helps you feel more comfortable during and after dental procedures, by reducing pain and healing times.
Digital dentistry makes diagnosis far more accurate and enables your dentist to identify problems with your teeth and jaws at the earliest stages. Digital dentistry is also highly beneficial for treatment planning and facilitates the use of minimally invasive treatments.
What digital dentistry services are available?
Lone Star Dental Care offers a range of digital dentistry services, including:
Laser technology is extremely beneficial to dental patients. Lasers increase the efficiency of many dental procedures, in addition to reducing healing time. The Lone Star Dental Care team uses lasers to perform noninvasive procedures such as:
- Cosmetic gum recontouring (gingivectomy)
- Cold sore therapy
- Crown lengthening
- Laser bacterial reduction before cleaning teeth
LANAP® is a laser treatment for gum disease that uses your body's natural healing abilities as an alternative to traditional periodontal surgery.
X-Guide is ideal for patients receiving dental implants, as it allows your dentist to precisely place your dental implant using real-time 3D imaging. Lone Star Dental Care is one of the only practices in Fresno that offers X-Guide treatments.
Invisalign is a system of invisible aligners that help straighten your teeth. Your dentist uses digital scanning technology to design the aligners to fit your mouth perfectly.
What diagnostic tools does digital dentistry provide?
The Lone Star Dental Care team uses digital X-ray facilities that speed up the X-ray procedure while exposing you to far lower doses of radiation.
The team uses the KaVo NOMAD™ Pro 2 Intraoral X-ray, a handheld X-ray System. The X-ray has wireless digital sensor technology that produces fast, highly accurate digital images of your teeth and jaws.
They also use the iTero Element intraoral scanner, which provides precision images of all areas of your mouth and eliminates the need to take alginate impressions. The iTero Element also automatically repositions itself during the digital removal of soft tissue.
Using these advanced technologies, the dentists at Lone Star Dental Care deliver exceptional diagnostics and procedure planning, making treatments to fit crowns, bridges, and dental implants faster, more accurate, and more comfortable.
