With an increased interest in the dental health, the dental industry isn’t what it was before. There are new products and new players in the market, constantly researching and using new technologies to tackle dental health with more precision and speed.
Top New Innovations Today
Recent dental summits held worldwide have seen many such innovations. Here is a look at a few of them
Digital Impressions systems
This is no longer a fad, but a reality with the new technologies in place, digital impressions provide a better accuracy and a more precise workflow than their previous predecessor. The new systems have a tinier camera and high-resolution touch screens making navigation of scan data easy.
The motion sensor mounted over the monitor is also one of the coolest features to help provide a touch-free way to control your machine and review or manipulate digital impression scans.
3D printing making digital physical
A practice starts running differently once they have the digital impressions in place. You start to notice a change in the workflow, like faster returns from the lab, or simply more accurate restorations.
Now, instead of getting back the same old porous green stone model like you used to in the past, you will get a lifelike full-color model that will show the stark differences between healthy teeth and gum tissues to that of unhealthy ones. This even allows for a patient to hold a color replica of their teeth with a 3D printed version of their veneers.
History is witness to dental implants being used since centuries back, and they have improved over the years both regarding surgical strikes and restorative connections.
Now the dentists have the new ability with angled drivers to place the access hole at an angle and thus able to handle the anterior implants which otherwise would have the screw access towards the facial making it hard to do the implants with precision.
Improved Intraoral cameras
Having an Intraoral camera is crucial to the dental practice. Earlier the cost of each of these cameras would run into thousands of dollars, but with the new technology and innovations it has slashed down to almost 1/10th of the price.
This new camera offers the similar USB connections, LED lighting and diagnostic image resolutions like that of the others. Companies manufacturing these new cameras also offer cloud-based storage solutions that allow the patients also to securely view their images from the comfort of their homes and review the dentist’s treatment recommendations.
A buffered anesthetic will take hold faster due to its neutral ph. It works far better during operations and surgical treatments where the need to use and reload the anaesthesia over and over again becomes a pain. The anaesthetic buffering allows for a one-time load and get up to multiple dosages in along with the use of multiple disposable syringes.
There are many more such innovations and with the availability of cutting edge dental technology it has become too easy to integrate and very simply it works.
