Digital Dentistry and Technology

Quincy, MA

Gone are the days of inefficient procedures, goopy impressions, and multiple unnecessary appointments. Digital dentistry and technology in Quincy, MA, have revolutionized the field of dentistry, and Dr. Ferro at JF Dental is all in. With the integration of intraoral scanners, digital film, 3D (CBCT) radiographs, 3D printers, modern CO2 lasers, an in-office laboratory, same-day crowns, and a dental team at the top of their field, we can provide accurate diagnoses, efficient treatments, and improved patient experiences. Additionally, digital records and electronic health records streamline administrative tasks, enhancing the overall patient journey.

The Best in Digital Imaging

For those of you who remember bringing a roll of Kodak film or a disposable camera to the store for photo processing, dentists used to develop small films of their patients’ teeth in a similar way. These small films were hard to read and sometimes over- or underdeveloped. With the advent of digital radiographs, patients are exposed to less radiation, the time to process the radiographs is instant, and the quality of the images reveals greater detail. All of these factors allow Dr. Ferro’s office to provide safe, efficient, and exceptional care.

Innovations like CAD/CAM (computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing) systems have also revolutionized restorative dentistry, allowing for the fabrication of crowns, bridges, and veneers in a single appointment, saving patients time and reducing the need for multiple visits. At JF Dental, we use the best intraoral optical scanners to obtain an accurate image of the teeth, tissue, bite (occlusion), and mouth borders. After scanning prepped teeth or tissue, our dental technology can produce crowns and bridges, dentures, nightguards (bite splints), whitening trays, and even athletic mouth guards. The accuracy is superior to the old technique of using impressions, which shrink when set, and stone models, which expand when set.

Our patients can expect more personalized, efficient, and comfortable dental care, ultimately leading to healthier smiles and improved oral health outcomes.

Going Beyond 2 Dimensional Radiographs into 3 Dimensional Imaging

When planning for more complex dentistry or requiring more detailed information beyond a 2-dimensional radiograph, a 3-dimensional radiograph may be necessary. Dr. Ferro at JF Dental has the most advanced 3D cone beam computer topography (CBCT) to aid in diagnosis, review of complex structures (joints, sinuses, nerves), mapping root canals for individual teeth, and dental implant planning. Our Carestream 8200 CBCT 3D Scanner captures high-quality images in both 2D and 3D, and its software allows for precise planning of crowns, bridges, and implants. This technology accurately maps anatomy, limits exposure to radiation, offers faster and safer dental visits, and provides a preview of the end result before treatment begins. We can take accurate images in as little as seven seconds using half the radiation of standard scanners. With the implementation of our 3D CBCT, Dr. Ferro and his talented team can provide more dental services without referring you to outside imaging centers or specialists. You will have fewer appointments, faster treatments, and ease of care with this technology.
