Disruption and convergence of technologies have benefited many fields of medical science. Dentistry is no different; we are now into the era of Digital Dentistry, one of the best examples of convergence of technologies. Digital dentistry can simply be put forward as any dental technology or device that incorporates digital or computer-controlled components in contrast to that of mechanical or electrical alone. This broad definition can range from the most commonly thought area of digital dentistry like CAD/CAM (computer aided design/computer aided manufacturing).
Each area of digital dentistry has advantages in comparison to the conventional device or technique. Be it imaging or the treatment, convergence of digital technologies has made it convenient for the practitioners. Broadly, there are three direct benefits the convergence of digital technology with dentistry has brought in.
- Improved efficiency, both cost and time wise
- Improved accuracy in comparison to previous methods
- A high level of predictability of outcomes
One of the best examples of the convergence of technology in dentistry is the 3D Dental Imaging system. The 3D Dental imaging is giving impeccable results for the doctors. A detailed view of the roots bone structures, such as adjacent root positions, in order to locate canals and root fractures helping to give in-depth information about the patient. These images give a wider perspective, different angles, pan and zoom for a better treatment of the cause. Doctors currently have chosen this approach to get a comprehensive report on the root cause of the problems.
In India, Vatech has been pioneering the innovations and convergence of digital technologies in dentistry. Its product PaX-i3D Smart has, like its other products, revolutionized the way imaging was done. One scan with a PaX-i3D Smart gives not just a CT image but also an Auto Pano image. This means patients who require both images do not need to undergo two X-ray scans. Also, CT and Auto Pano images are displayed within the One Viewer feature.
Vatech since inception has been a global leader in the dental imaging industry with its innovative product line and simplifying dental industry. With its reliable and trusted legacy, Vatech has been astonishingly setting its own benchmark in the 3D dental imaging industry.
