Now it is available in southeast Asia.mentation and backing up of files in offices have become streamlined with the help of software and the cloud.

This trend to digitize and innovate has not spared dental health.

What is digital dentistry?

Digital dentistry is much like any other field or process made better by technology. It's dentistry that utilizes computer-controlled technologies, machines, equipment, and devices to carry out dental procedures.

While dentists are usually equipped with the tools and knowledge that they need to take care of teeth, innovations in dentistry enable dentists to have access to immediate and more detailed information to deliver the most accurate and efficient results for increased patient satisfaction.

Advantages of digital dentistry

From something as simple as dental scheduling to more complicated procedures and prosthodontics, digitizing the dental process makes things quicker, more accurate, and even less painful.

Through computer-assisted design and computer-assisted manufacturing (CAD/CAM), dental restorations can be fabricated much more quicker, to the convenience of both the patient and the dentist. 

This technology allows even the most extensive case to be completed on the same day, when it would otherwise require two or more visits to be completed.

When getting a dental implant, the possibilities of infection, terrible pain, wrong bite, or even improper positioning of the implant can be horrifying.

The possibility of these scary scenarios happening, however, is lowered by Cone Beam CT and guided surgery, which provides dentists with a quick 3D image of a patient's oral anatomy. This makes implant placement easier and more predictable, which helps ensure greater treatment success. 

Digital X-rays, meanwhile, are much more comfortable and emit significantly less radiation than traditional X-rays. Digital radiographs allow dentists to magnify images for greater diagnostic accuracy, ensuring more timely and appropriate treatments.

With dental lasers, patients are less likely to require sutures for some procedures; anesthesia may not be needed anymore to manage pain; infections are less likely because the lasers sterilize the gums; healing times are shorter because of less damage to the gums; and pain and bleeding are reduced in dental surgeries.
