The dental industry is constantly changing and now, new technologies are being implemented to revolutionise the way we experience our trip to the dentist. There’s a huge number of different types of technologies that you might find to streamline the entire oral hygiene regime. Here, we’re taking a look at the very latest developments in the industry.
Cosmetic dentistry is hugely on the rise in the world, and with a quarter of Brits having already undergone cosmetic dentistry procedures of some form in the UK, there’s a great number of developments in this particular industry. One such development is the rise in “power” teeth bleaching which involves a light being shone on the teeth whitening ingredients in order to further activate them. 3D printed veneers are also one of the latest developments in the industry, with replacement teeth being fabricated layer upon layer while still producing a very natural looking result. Now getting a that suits your exact requirements has never been easier. There’s a number of aesthetic options for people to consider when it comes to cosmetic dentistry, and with new developments being pushed on a daily basis, it’s easy to see why this is so popular.
3D Dental Scanners
The use of 3D dental scanners allows more consultants to get an accurate picture of a patient’s mouth, and the problems inside of the mouth that may not necessarily be seen simply by a trained dentist looking in a person’s mouth. 3D dental scanners can also help with things like braces and other orthodontics, as well as for cosmetic dentistry like veneers and matching the patient’s exact requirements to the additional mouth pieces that are going to be implemented. 3D dental scanners are looking to be used more and more in dental practices around the world, and this is a great option for people looking to improve the services they provide while also reducing the risk of human error when it comes to fittings.
3D Tooth Printing
As mentioned above with the veneers, a new development in the industry is 3D tooth printing. 3D tooth printing is a revolutionary new way to create natural looking teeth, to the exact size and requirements that are inputted into the printer. There is also the chance for 3D printed teeth to include antimicrobial properties, which can help you to have more confidence in your smile while protecting your teeth in the long run. While the treatment may not necessarily be viable for the long-term as there will need to be a number of tests and techniques that will need to be explored first, this could provide a new smile makeover option for people looking for an attractive option.
Clinical Dentistry Microscopes
One of the biggest changes the industry could see is the implementation of clinical microscopes, to help dentists discover the root cause of the problem and to be able to see more than ever before. While some dentists already use some forms of microscopes, new technologies are allowing dentists to get an even closer look at the state of teeth, in a less invasive way.
