The term Digital Dentistry refers to dental work being created in part or in whole through the use of computers. Optical scanners are typically used to take a digital impression of the mouth to transmit an extremely precise replica to a dental lab. The lab work is created using computer software allowing the treating dentist to guide the fabrication of the dental work.
The work is very precise and is fabricated by computer controlled milling machines. We here at Trovato Family Laser Dentistry have personally created crowns, bridges, implant crowns and bridges, dentures, partial dentures, All on 4 (full mouth, implant supported) prosthesis, sleep apnea and orthodontic appliances, night guards, and orthodontic aligners, all using digital dentistry.
