What Digital Dentistry Means

Digital X-rays and digital intraoral cameras may be pretty obvious parts of digital dentistry, but preventive exams and diagnoses are only one area in which digital technology improves dentistry. For instance, using computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing, or CAD/CAM, allows Dr. Lawson to create same-day porcelain dental crowns and other lifelike restorations (using E4D technology). Even traditional cosmetic and reconstructive restorations can be more precisely crafted using digital imaging and measuring.

The Benefits of Digital Dentistry

For integrated dental services, digital technology isn’t focused on making things easier, but rather on making your diagnostic exams and dental procedures as comfortable and efficient as possible. The benefits of digital dentistry include:

  • Safer treatment (i.e., less radiation from digital X-rays)
  • Strong, lifelike restorations, including veneers and crowns
  • Single-visit procedures
  • Often no need for temporary restorations

Take your dental health care and treatment to the next level by taking advantage of digital dentistry! Learn more about the benefits by calling Lawson Family Dentistry in Urbandale, IA, today at 515-278-4366.
