How is digital dentistry improving dental surgery?


On many fronts, we now have developed technologies
where we can effectively merge photography, video, CT scans, intraoral scans, computer
planning, surgical planning, planning exactly where implants are going to go, what the bone
consistency is, where we going to place them. We can basically do a dry run digitally in
our heads with so much accuracy so when it comes to the actual planning there is less
guesswork. We know what we’re planning for, we know what we’re going to find. And the
surgery, therefore, obviously, goes much more smoothly. But also, the ability to manufacture
dental prostheses using much more modern methods. Using computer-aided design and manufacture
makes a massive difference to the reproducibility and durability of the restorations that we’re
carrying out.
