Digital Dentistry

What is Digital Dentistry?

Technology surrounding dentistry is continually changing. We are now able to use digital diagnostic tools to help diagnose and treat certain oral conditions.

Digital dentistry is incredibly useful in our practice and is utilized every single day. Digital dentistry is used for dental implants, prosthetic appliances, gum disease treatment, oral surgery and to examine dental anatomy. 

Here at Miller Dental in Fulshear, TX, we offer the very best in digital dentistry with Glidewell Intelligent Manufacturing. This allows us to examine the area to be treated to ensure success of varying procedures.

All-Access Digital Dentistry

With Glidewell Intelligent Manufacturing (IM), the lab is able to take a clinician’s elastomeric impression and immediately convert it into a digital file. Restoration production then commences using a virtual study model within a design environment enhanced by artificial intelligence, before culminating in a computer-enhanced robotic milling and quality control center. The nearly hands-free process is faster, more accurate and more precise — and all but eliminates exposure to potentially pathogenic physical impressions or study models.

Stone-Free, Model-Free Restorations

Glidewell IM frees the clinician from requiring stone models. While many practitioners are accustomed to using models to verify the fit and function of a restoration prior to delivery, the enhanced accuracy of the Glidewell IM digital workflow eliminates this need. Crown design and morphology is confirmed repeatedly throughout the manufacturing process, with the final restoration receiving an enhanced quality check before leaving the laboratory.
