DIGITAL SOLUTIONS FROM THE DENTAL PRACTICE
THE DIGITAL REVOLUTION CONCERNS ALL SECTORS OF ACTIVITY.
The medical sector and specifically the practice of dentistry has considerably evolved in recent years.
Computer-aided design and manufacturing, making digital impressions, 3D radiology, guided surgery and connected devices are all elements that are used on a daily basis in dental surgeries and dental prosthesis laboratories.
Patients can now benefit from customised dental prostheses, designed and manufactured directly by computer after their digital impressions are made.
They also benefit from a 3D diagnosis due to intraoral scanners and 3D radiology. Thus, they discover the possible disorders of the mouth and this enables the practitioner to better explain the situation and associated treatments.
- Making impressions has become digital, which brings comfort to patients who no longer have to undergo unpleasant feelings from the impression plaster. But there is also more accuracy in making prostheses as well as saving a considerable amount of time.
- The surgical techniques are also simplified due to 3D radiology, with specific software and surgical guides. They are becoming more accurate.
- Even patient/practitioner communication tools are going digital. Information is circulating more, faster and more effectively. Patients can view the treatments that they benefit from. Smartphone applications make it possible to check the follow-up of a treatment and to establish a one-on-one relationship with his/her practitioner and software makes smile analyses possible or even to simulate what a patient’s smile would be like with white and aligned teeth.
