Technological advances have transformed dentistry, providing dentists with new tools and techniques to treat their patients.

One of the biggest changes is the digitalisation of processes, which allows dentists to plan and carry out treatments with much more precision and efficiency. For example, digital scanning technology allows dentists to create precise models of the patient's mouth, without the need for uncomfortable moulds. These digital models can be used to plan personalised treatments, from placing implants to making dental prostheses.

Another technology is 3D printing. With it, it is possible to create customised prostheses, moulds and appliances much more quickly and accurately. 3D printing also allows dentists to test various models and prototypes before finalising the final product, which increases the quality of the end result.

Did you know that there is also laser technology? For example, they allow dentists to carry out less invasive and more precise procedures, as they are used to treat cavities, remove excessive gum tissue and even for teeth whitening.

Another recent technology is invisible orthodontics, such as the Invisalign system, which uses transparent aligners to adjust the position of the teeth. These aligners are personalised for each patient. This option is much more discreet and comfortable than traditional braces.

Over time, technological advances have transformed the practice of dentistry, making it more precise, efficient and comfortable for patients.

Invest in technology, transform your smile.
