Dental technology and innovations are continually transforming smiles and lives by providing better access as well as precision and patient-centered care. Smart toothbrushes that track brushing patterns, to regenerative treatments which could replace dentures and implants one day are just a few of the innovations which are continually evolving.

Laser dentistry is becoming more common and enables dentists to carry out a variety of treatments using less invasive methods, including gum disease treatment and tooth decay removal. Nanotechnology also enhances dental materials. Fillings and coatings are now more similar to natural tooth enamel, while also reducing wear. 3D printing on the other hand is changing the face of this industry by allowing it to create complex dental parts quickly and precisely. This is making it possible for dentists to design and manufacture prosthetics without the need to wait for a laboratory which reduces the chance of errors and adjustments.

Digital X-rays and cone beam Tomography scans are two other technological breakthroughs that offer high-resolution pictures of the teeth and soft tissue. These diagnostic tools are safer and more precise than traditional X radiographs. They also shield you from exposure to harmful radiation.

Virtual reality (VR) is also transforming the dental experience by providing the opportunity to reduce patient discomfort and make the process less stressful. AR is also used more frequently to educate patients, assist in treatment planning and provide a symbiosis of visualizations.
