Digital dentistry has brought a new perspective to traditional dental treatments. With the rapid development of digital technology, treatments of dentistry have become more comfortable. Dental treatments can be completed in much shorter time with use of 3D scanners, milling machines and the latest computer technologies in dentistry. Digital dentistry has many advantages that increase patient satisfaction in all aspects. It is very comfortable for both the patient and the dentist. With the use of digital cameras, dental treatments like smile design, orthodontics, prosthodontics and measurements related with such treatments can be completed in a much shorter time with minimum error. The use of digital dentistry technologies is increasing more and more due to their advantages in terms of time, cost, comfort and minimizing the number of treatment sessions.
Nowadays, dentists use 3D tomography in treatment planning and treatment process. Tomographs facilitate the diagnosis and treatment of diseases by converting the captured data into 3D images. Views in all directions and precise measurements allows the dentist to examine the patient’s mouth and jaw better and in more detail. This examination results in an effective treatment planning.
It facilitates implant treatment by determining the correct placement. Tomographs that provide detailed information about bone tissue increase the success of implant operations.
It is used in cases where it is necessary to determine the position of the impacted wisdom teeth in the jawbone and to evaluate the interaction with the anatomical regions in three dimensions.
It also helps in the treatment planning of cysts and other pathologies arising in the jaws and the borders of the cysts can be determined in detail.
It is used to diagnose orthodontic problems and for planning orthodontic treatment.
3D tomography plays a very important role in the planning and application phase of implant treatment. It makes possible to get every precaution to reduce damage to anatomical structures. This makes the treatment much more successful and comfortable.
Tomography devices used in dentistry emit much less radiation than devices used in medicine. Moreover, because the scanned area is very small, the radiation dose received is also minimal.
Cad/Cam is a technology that includes computer-aided design and manufacturing. It is used in many areas of dentistry. The number of dentistry areas where Cad/Cam used is increasing more and more due to its advantages in shortening treatment time and minimizing error rate with the help of digital measurements.
Prosthodontics treatments (crowns, bridges, veneers, prosthesis over implant etc.)
Inlay and onlay porcelain fillings
Digital smile design
It is possible to complete the dental treatment within a much shorter time.
The margin of error is low. Digital measurements and designs ensure comfortable treatment process.
Dental measurements are made with an intraoral camera instead of using paste-like substances that may cause nausea.
The whole treatment process is completed fewer appointments with short time.
After intraoral scanning, for patients with appropriate indications, it is possible to start the orthodontics treatment by transparent plaques produced by CAD/CAM technology in a short time instead of using metal braces.
With the help of the surgical guide plates produced by 3D intraoral scanning, it is possible to plan where and how to place the implants. This planning ensures surgical operations to be performed with minimum error risk.
