The use of digital technology in the field of dentistry is a reality that is already giving very positive results for the patient in terms of quality, comfort and speed.
The intraoral cameras, the 3D radiological equipment, as well as the patient management and communication software, allow an almost complete digitalization of the treatment process of the patients, with applications as diverse as diagnosis and treatment planning by 3D image, guided surgery, use of Computer Aided Design (CAD) technology or Computer Assisted Manufacturing with computer-guided design and manufacturing (CAM)
These processes have multiple advantages for both professional and patient:
- Greater precision, more accurate results and shorter treatments.
- Elimination or reduction of human error
- Anticipate the final result and be able to teach the patient on a screen the predictable result of their treatment
- Rigorous control and monitoring of each treatment. This allows intervention at any stage, to add or rectify values that may vary.
- More informed and secure patients
- Reduction of the manufacturing time of intraoral devices with dental digitalization.
- Shorter treatments = less visits to the specialist and less discomfort
The integration of digital processes in daily clinical practice is therefore essential for a good practice, and the search and implementation of new technologies to further increase the effectiveness of treatments is one of the driving forces of the Maxillofacial Institute's specialists.
