8 New Technologies That Are Changing Your Trip to the Dentist


By Tammy Ruggles


Technology changes rapidly from day to day, and that means that new technologies impact almost every industry imaginable. This includes the dentistry industry.


Let’s take a look at 8 new technologies that are trending in dentistry today:


  1. 3D Printing: This technology is revolutionizing the way the field of dentistry operates on a day to day basis. It not only benefits dentists, it aids the patients as well, so this is a win-win situation. Take molds for example. In earlier times, making molds was a painstaking and time-consuming process, but with 3D printing, molds can be made a lot quicker and more efficiently. Need dentures, or just a partial plate? 3D printing to the rescue.


  1. The SoProLife camera. This is a powerful camera that can better detect cavities and imperfections in the teeth that could not have been detected with computer imaging alone. This will help in earlier detection of teeth and gum problems, thus saving the dentist time, and the patient money.


  1. Digital X-Ray. This process is easier and better than the average x-ray process. It minimizes the length of time that the person is exposed to radiation, and provides a better image.


  1. CT Scans. This method of imaging offers a 3D version of a patient’s mouth, teeth, and skull. This enables the dentist to identify and treat issues while in the early stages, such as cavities, bone disease, and other oral problems.


  1. Laser treatment. This method allows a dentist to laser away mouth sores, corroding bacteria, and other causes of dental problems such as gum disease and affected root tissue.


  1. Remineralization. This will virtually replace the dreaded dentist’s drill, as it uses light and painless electrical currents instead of the usual drilling process. Imagine how this will encourage those with dental issues to actually WANT to visit the dentist when they need a tooth pulled or examined.


  1. Digital dentistry. Digital dentistry goes beyond digital records. It includes appointment reminders via e-mail, Facebook, and smart phone, as well as instant access to a dentist’s office via FaceTime or Skype, and video tutorials on how to properly clean, floss, and care for your teeth.


  1. Robotics. Specifically, the Simroid robot was invented to help dentists in training. Instead of the dental student practicing on a human for a grade, the student will practice on the teeth, gums, and mouth of a lifelike robot, which will even make a sound of pain if the dental student makes a mistake.
