Digital Dentistry is one of the most latest technique apart from routine dental procedures. It involve use of digital technology like Cad Cam, software assisted dental procedures, digital impressions, digital radiography, digitally designed surgical stent for dental implants, digital dental photography, also digitally designed stents for orthodontics, making of digitally developed models for dental crowns, bridge & restorations.
Digital dentistry has revolutionized the way dental restorations are created. The intraoral scanner was invented to rectify quality deficiencies associated with manual production of traditional, hand-produced dental impressions and dental restorations. Also with intraoral cameras and a variety of computer modeling software, digital models of fixtures are created from the impressions captured. To take it further, Special machines (quite like 3D printers) are used to form the new dentures or implants. Because manual imprinting and handiwork is prone to mistakes, these fixtures fit much more accurately than before.
DIGITAL 3D PRINTING
Dental 3D digital printers bring advanced triple-jetting technology to dental models. These are also capable of printing 3D impressively realistic models with true-to-life look and feel for:
- Crown and bridge
- Full mouth cases
- Implant models (with metal analogues)
- Study models
- Diagnostic wax ups
- Orthodontic appliances
- Orthodontics (Both fixed and removable)
- Nightguards …and many other procedures.
DIGITALLY DESIGNED ORTHODONTIC ALIGNERS
Digital Orthodontic Aligners straightens the teeth without wires and brackets, using a series of clear, customized, removable appliances. It’s virtually undetectable, which means hardly anyone will know that you’re straightening your teeth. These aligners are the future of orthodontic treatment. These incorporate a series of invisible (clear) plastic aligners that fit comfortably over your teeth and are designed to move your teeth gradually into the desired position. Clear aligners are a favourite choice for orthodontic treatment, primarily because the removable aligners (less than one mm thick) are designed to be more cosmetically pleasing than conventional wire-and-bracket dental braces.
Digital dentistry technology offers major advantages over conventional dentistry techniques. One of the biggest advantages of this is improved efficiency in dental treatment procedures. Also, Improved accuracy is a great benefit of using digital technologies. Also, this leads to more precise diagnoses and definitive treatments, and it removes wasted time and money that can arise from the routine dental procedures. With these leading-edge technologies in use, dentists can easily foresee the outcome of specific procedure and improve the patient’s virtual experience even before starting the treatment
