Dental technology and advancements are constantly changing smiles and our lives with improved access, precision, and patient-centered treatment. From smart toothbrushes which track brushing patterns to regeneration treatments that may one day replace dentures and implants, the innovations continue to evolve and grow.

Laser dentistry is becoming more popular which allows you to perform a variety of treatments that require less methods, such as gum disease treatment and tooth decay elimination. Nanotechnology can also improve dental materials. Coatings and fillings are now more akin to natural tooth enamel while reducing wear. 3D printing, on the other hand is changing the way we do business because it allows the production of intricate dental components quickly and accurately. This makes it possible for dentists to design and manufacture prosthetics, without having to wait for a lab which reduces the chance of errors and adjustments.

Other cutting-edge technologies include digital X-rays (dental radiography) and cone beam computed tomography scans, which offer high-resolution pictures of the teeth and soft tissues. These diagnostic instruments are more secure and precise than traditional X scans. They also prevent exposure to harmful radiation.

Virtual reality (VR) is also changing the experience of dental care, providing an opportunity to divert patients from discomfort and make treatment less stressful. Similarly, augmented reality (AR) is becoming increasingly used as a method of educating patients and enhance treatment planning by providing immersive visualizations of their results.
