Using technology to benefit our patients
What is Digital Dentistry?
The term Digital Dentistry refers to those digital or computer-controlled aspects that have now been introduced into treatments and can be used for more advanced, more accurate dentistry.
Dentistry has changed vastly over the years - this has been for two main reasons: partly due to the remarkable developments in dental materials that are available, but also due to the huge advancements in technology, that can now be used to enhance our treatments.
How does this benefit our patients?
Dr Munawwar Ladak has always had a passion for using technology where possible, to benefit both his practise of dentistry and his patients. At Safana, we have been using digital radiography and digital photography, as part of our normal procedures when treating patients, since the practice opened in 2011. This has greatly enhanced our ability to communicate with patients so they are fully aware of any treatments that are required, as well as to show how these treatments have improved their dental health over time.
Now, Dr Ladak has also introduced a digital intra-oral scanner to further enhance and facilitate our more complex advanced treatments. We have invested in this technology so we can continue to offer our patients the highest level of care.
