A State-of-the-Art Dental Office
Digital Radiography (X-rays) and Digital Charting
Our office is a completely digital (paperless) dental office. This means all x-rays and charting are done with the aid of the computer. Digital x-rays are very large and hence easier to read. They can be enhanced to show different views to aid in diagnosis. The computer can be used to approximate measurements on the x-rays for diagnostic purposes. Digital charting standardizes the charting process in a way that is very clear and easy to understand.
With the old “paper chart” it was difficult to keep the charting standardized from doctor to hygienist to assistants. Even differences in hand writing would make the charts look different. The computer eliminates this problem in that various items are charted exactly the same every time. Furthermore, the computer uses different colors for pre-existing restorations, decay or conditions, treatment planned and treatment completed. Thus it is easy to read one chart and see current and up to date information that is updated and re-colored as treatment is performed.
Digital photography helps us in diagnosis and treatment planning as well as communication with specialists and lab technicians. With e-mail, this information can be transferred quickly and easily for faster communication and enhanced treatment decisions.
Once again digital patient education is more descriptive and enlightening than ever before. PowerPoint programs show before and after cases as well as other informative programming. We also have specific software for demonstrating all aspects of dental care from preventive care to restorative dentistry to the effects of tooth and bone loss from losing teeth and not having them restored.
