ATLANTA, GA, May 29, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The days of waiting a week or more for your crown to come back from a dental lab may soon be over. No more dealing with a temporary crown until your dentist calls you in. The advances in dental digital technology make the whole process much easier. Many dentist offices are now using computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) technologies to make crowns on the spot.
Other advances include digital radiography or X-rays that provide better imaging using significantly less radiation that traditional X-rays. For even better imaging, your Marietta dentist may use a CT scan. This is a cone-beam computed tomography image that creates a 3-D image of the teeth, gums, jaw and nerves.
Another advance is laser technology. This digital technology is used to detect cavities and place dental implants. Using lasers means that patients will feel less discomfort with no need for drills, stitches or scalpels. The healing process is also shorter with laser procedures.
"We have found that providing our patients with state-of-the-art digital technology services saves them time and eliminates the discomfort caused by uncomfortable procedures and temporary dental work," explains Ken Tralongo, CEO of Tralongo Management.
Digital dental technologies will continue to advance and the benefits to patients will increase. Insurance companies include coverage of many of the digital services provided in the dentist's office as well as in the lab.
