How is Dentistry Advancing its Way Using Technology?

Healthcare Tech Outlook | Tuesday, October 26, 2021

Today, dental laboratory scanners are being used to create a 3D digital model from a precise physical dental model or impression.

FREMONT, CA: In the current environment, new technologies are growing at a quick speed, resulting in rapid change. The need for these technologies is increasing as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Various dental technologies are being implemented to improve people's oral health during the COVID-19 outbreak. Thus, the many supporting software utilized by these technologies contributes to the new level of digitization. Sensor-based dentistry equipment is connected, providing precise information as well as timely alerts. During the COVID-19 epidemic, virtual technologies provided various dentistry-related training, which improved the teaching and learning process.

Tele-dentistry treatments can be delivered to patients in the comfort of their own homes, with no danger of infection.

The Dental Internet of Things (IoDT)

The IoDT is a new approach to preventing and treating dental caries, oral cancer, periodontal disease, and other dental problems. It proposes a smart dental healthcare strategy that is promising to address patients in a growing number of dental specialties, including oral and maxillofacial pathology and surgery, prosthodontics and implant dentistry, periodontics, and oral public health.

Dental 3D scanner

In the discipline of dentistry, numerous imaging methods are used. Dental laboratory scanners can also be used to create a 3D digital model from a precise physical dental model or impression. It delivers automatic scanning for the patient's particular body parts in less time and at a lower cost. Dental lab scanners are now available as part of the digital workflow of a dental lab.

Augmented and virtual reality (AR/VR)

These technologies can be successfully employed in dentistry to create adequate advanced 3D imaging of human teeth and other elements. AR/ VR imagery can improve both on-site and off-site training. Additionally, these are touted as a long-term solution for content collection, creation, and delivery. VR technology brings to the market new features like eye-tracking, hand tracking, and higher-resolution headsets.

Computer-Aided Design (CAD)

The user needs to connect to a specific machine to use the CAD software, which allows them to design and customize various medical tools. During the COVID 19 pandemic, letting employees work from home without disrupting business operations will be vital. Designers would be able to log in to their office PCs from home and continue working as usual.
