Top 4 Advantages of Digital Dentistry
As Stubbs Dental is making the switch to our new fully digital system you may notice some changes in our processes. No more goopy impression material, no more being sent home without a prosthetic for a day, and faster changes and turnaround times on dental implants/oral appliances. But what is the point of all of this, and what advantages can you expect with this switch?
With digital dentistry you can expect faster turnaround times and shorter appointments. A typical scan takes less time than an impression and can immediately be sent off to our lab, so they can begin production much sooner than otherwise. Compared to traditional impressions which take time to prepare and dry, are subject to human error, and need to be physically shipped, increasing turnaround times.
Our scanner provides the highest resolution available on the market and is able to capture every detail and allows us to work with a far superior degree of accuracy. Perfectly accurate measurements are critical for dental implants, oral appliances, and the All-on-4®, as it will dramatically decrease the chance of nonsuccess or remakes.
Savings accumulated from the lack of waste of impression material, not using containers/single-use plastic coverings, saving shipping materials and the price for a shipping label, and spending less time allow us to provide this superior quality service for the same costs we have always operated at. Though these state of the art machines are quite an investment up front, the savings in the long run provide us with the ability to operate at a higher standard without raising our relatively modest prices.
The changes you will experience from our digital dental switch will add up to a faster visit, better quality care, and more comfortable experience overall. Many patients will be thrilled to take a look at their dental situation immediately and have it explained in detail with full visual representation, no longer have to suffer through a mouthful of goopy putty, experience lower radiation levels than traditional dental visits, and will enjoy incredibly predictable and consistent outcomes and beautiful results.
Stubbs Dental is proud to be bringing the newest and best technology to all of our offices. The improved accuracy and precision enables us to create beautiful and well fitting prosthetics that look and feel incredible. Our digital dental switch was critical to this, and we believe this is the golden standard for any dentist’s office.
