Becoming an early adopter of dental health IT, such as CEREC (Chair-side Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) systems and intraoral cameras can help improve a dental practice. Health IT systems have many benefits compared to conventional techniques and systems. Early adoption of CEREC systems and intraoral cameras can offset the costs associated with acquiring these technologies.
CEREC systems are a part of dental health IT that is utilized by dentists who mostly work with crowns and dental implants. The main benefit of using this chair-side software is that the software enhances a dentist’s ability to develop and place implants and crowns. CEREC systems are used in collaboration with intraoral cameras and other hardware for 3D imaging to create implants and plan for surgery.
Another benefit of using dental health IT is that the patient participates in all the steps involved in the restorative procedure. CEREC software allows for the creation of 3D renders of the mouth where the patient can see how their dentition will be affected by the restorative procedure. The participation of patients in the restorative process is a way of improving dental practice since the dentist and the patient can consider different treatment possibilities before settling on the best one. Dentists with the ability to create implants and crowns onsite reduce the time the patients have to wait for their restorative procedures.
An intraoral camera is part of health IT hardware that allows the dentist and the patient to see the sites where decay is located and areas where restorative treatment is required. One of the benefits of intraoral cameras is that they are simpler to use and understand compared to conventional X-ray images.
Intraoral cameras ensure that the dentist and patient see a clear and high-quality image that is unmatched by the conventional oral mirror. Health IT, including intraoral cameras, is beneficial to the education process in dentistry since students have access to clear images and can better grasp the concepts being taught.
In conclusion, there are three main benefits of health IT, including improving accuracy compared to conventional methods, improving dental practice efficiency, and improving predictability outcomes.
