Dr. Takenaga on technology at Sierra Dental Care Read Transcript
Technology has definitely changed dentistry as a whole. In terms of orthodontics, it allows us to be a little bit more efficient. For example we have a scanner which we scan all our models. We do not need to store the physical models here on the premises. We're able to have it digitally, so the ability to call it up quickly and be able to look at it and study it and it's more seamless. And interesting, right now, we're in the process of actually updating some more technology and hopefully in the near future, we'll be able to take digital 3D scans of the patient's mouth and hopefully eliminate or almost eliminate the impressions that we need to usually take, on a routine basis. Another bit of technology that helps us is that we have our own x-ray equipment needed to fully diagnose an orthodontic case, and so our patients do not have to go to another facility to have these x-ray orthodontic records, so we try to keep it as a one-shop deal here, when possible, for the convenience of the patients.
