Digital Dentistry is a set of applications in which modern technology devices and computer-aided methods are used partially or completely during the diagnosis, planning and treatment process of dentistry applications that people need for different reasons.

Among the situations targeted by Digital Dentistry applications, increasing the precision of production, shortening the treatment process and minimizing human errors can be shown.

Many treatment methods, from methods applied for people to have a more aesthetic smile to complicated implant treatments, from easily performed filling applications to orthodontic treatments or dental veneers, can be shown among the applications performed using modern technology and devices within the scope of Digital Dentistry.

Among the programs and devices used during the treatments applied within the scope of Digital Dentistry;

  • Optical Scanners
  • 3D Printers,
  • CAD - CAM Design and Production Devices,
  • Augmented Reality Technologies,

can be shown.

Digital Dentistry applications offer significant advantages in terms of the production speed and precision of the apparatus required for treatments. In addition, since the details of many treatment tools such as braces, fillings, veneers, night plates, bridges, etc., which are produced individually, are stored in the computer environment, there is no need to take impressions from the patient when they need to be reproduced for a different reason.

However, thanks to Digital Dentistry methods, patients living in a different city or country can produce the apparatus they need within the scope of oral and dental treatment in the light of the data they will transmit online without going to the clinic.

Another advantage of Digital Dentistry applications is that the patient's mouth and teeth are scanned at certain intervals and the results obtained are compared with one another. As a result of these comparisons, displacements, problems or deformations in the teeth of the person can be detected at a very accurate time and with clarity and necessary measures can be taken.

What is Digital Dentistry 

In the simplest terms, Digital Dentistry is the computer-based devices and modern technology programs that specialist dentists use to examine the oral and dental condition of patients and to carry out a perfect diagnosis and treatment process.

Digital Dentistry, also referred to as CAD / CAM, is a set of applications that ensure that dental treatments that people need for different reasons are completed safely, comfortably and painlessly with a high success rate using modern technology devices and programs.

Digital Dentistry applications ensure that the treatment methods performed by specialist dentists under today's conditions are completed much faster and with the principle of minimum risk.

To Whom Digital Dentistry is Applied 

Digital Dentistry provides faster, safer and more comfortable oral and dental treatment applications that people need for different reasons. Thanks to these applications, the diagnosis and treatment process is completed much faster and flawlessly.

However, thanks to Digital Dentistry applications, challenging treatment processes that require more than one dentist to work in coordination are successfully completed.

Digital Dentistry applications can be integrated into many dental treatment methods that people may need for different reasons, such as orthodontic applications, implant treatment, smile design, dental veneers, filling applications, dental prosthesis treatment, and can be stated as techniques that increase the success rate and speed of the process.

Which Treatments are Performed with Digital Dentistry 

Today, many cosmetic or functional discomforts that people are exposed to in their teeth, gums, peri-oral and jaw areas for different reasons are treated with a safe, comfortable and fast treatment process using Digital Dentistry applications.

Among the treatment methods using Digital Dentistry applications;

  • Digital Smile Design
  • Conservative Treatments
  • Prosthesis Applications
  • Zirconium & Laminated Veneer
  • Crown & Bridge Applications
  • Inlay & Onlay Fillings
  • Fixed & Removable Prostheses
  • Implant Treatment
  • Orthodontic Applications

can be shown.

Which Technologies are Used in Digital Dentistry

Unlike traditional dentistry treatment methods, Digital Dentistry applications utilize computer-based components and all the possibilities of modern dental technology instead of using electrical or mechanical procedures.

Thanks to Digital Dentistry applications, many manual processes that are required in the standard dentistry procedure and that can be repeated are eliminated. This allows dentists to carry out much faster and error-free treatment processes.

Among the most commonly used modern technology programs and devices in Digital Dentistry applications;

  • CAD - CAM Technology with Computer Controlled Components,
  • 3D Printers,
  • Optical Scanners,
  • Augmented Reality Software,

can be shown.

What is CAD - CAM Technology 

Computer Aided Design and Manufacturing, or CAD - CAM Technologies, are modern technology programs that help specialist dentists to ensure that the complex treatment procedures they need to apply to their patients are error-free and concluded quickly.

CAD - CAM applications, which started to be used in the early 1980s, have now become helpful for specialist dentists while performing many treatment processes in clinical environments prepared by utilizing all the possibilities of modern technology.

Thanks to Computer Aided Design and Manufacturing (CAD - CAM Technology), many procedures, especially dental veneers, conservative applications, implant treatment, crowns, bridges, prosthesis applications, are completed flawlessly and quickly.

How Digital Dentistry is Practiced 

Digital Dentistry are techniques that add reliability, comfort and speed to many different oral and dental treatments performed by specialized dentists in a clinical environment. This process, also called digital assisted dentistry treatments, is carried out by following 4 basic stages;

  • Digital Scanning Process (Digital Impression Taking): The impressions of the patients taken using 3D scanners are uploaded to the computer environment. A virtual model of the person's mouth and dental structure is created and the necessary treatments are planned in the light of this data.
  • Digital Design Process: Using the 3D virtual image, a design is made for missing teeth or teeth that need to be intervened in the mouth. In this design, many factors such as the structure, shape, size, contours of the tooth, the harmony between the gum and the tooth are modeled in the computer environment, and 100% suitable apparatus is produced with the mouth - tooth structure.
  • Digital Tooth Production: With the completion of the digital design process, the tooth production phase begins. Using 3D printers, teeth are produced in the most suitable structure for the patient's mouth and tooth structure.
  • Completion of Treatment : Digital Dentistry treatment is completed by applying the designed and manufactured teeth to the patient and making the final controls.

Digital Dentistry applications are used to accelerate the process and minimize the margin of error in many treatments that can be shown among aesthetic dentistry applications such as zirconium veneers, laminated veneers, full ceramic, leaf porcelain, e-max and empress veneers.

However, Digital Dentistry applications form the basis of the Digital Smile Design process. The systems used in Digital Dentistry have the ability to scan the inside of the mouth, process the data and produce the necessary apparatus. If you receive treatment from clinics with these programs and devices, your healing process will be very fast and the results obtained will be very successful.

How to Take Digital Tooth Impressions 

One of the most important processes of Digital Dentistry applications is taking Digital Impressions. In this process, an optical camera placed in the patient's mouth measures the teeth and tooth surfaces. The measurement quality is very high in this process, which is monitored on a special bedside monitor.

Digital Dental Impression provides point-and-click capture to bring together images to obtain data to be used during treatment.However, some systems also use 3D real-time video capture to process live images on a touchscreen monitor.

The application allows the creation of digital impressions to be used during treatment without the need for data to be assembled. The image capture process takes approximately 90 seconds. The analysis of the teeth in the opposite arch is also completed in approximately 90 seconds.

In order for the data obtained with Digital Tooth Impression applications to be perfect, the specialist dentist can see every detail by enlarging it on the monitor and make the necessary changes. The most commonly used systems to perform the measurement process are CAD - CAM technologies.

How Long Does Digital Dentistry Applications Take 

In Digital Dentistry applications, the patient's oral and dental structure is first examined with cameras and the measurements taken are transferred to the computer. This measurement with maximum precision is completed within 10 to 15 minutes on average.

In the light of the data obtained during the digital measurement process, computer-aided design completes the production of teeth within 5 to 10 minutes, although it may vary depending on the type of porcelain selected using 3D printers.

Although the completion time of Digital Dentistry applications varies according to the size of the problems the person is exposed to, it can be stated as 1 to 2 hours on average. However, all the data obtained is stored digitally and the patient's treatment history and needs are regularly monitored.

Digital Smile Design (Smile Design with Digital Dentistry) 

The applications in which the cosmetic or functional problems caused by different reasons in people's teeth, gums, around the mouth and jaw area are eliminated and the aesthetic smile that the person dreams of is called Smile Design.

Smile Design applications performed within the scope of Digital Dentistry, i.e. Digital Smile Design, are treatment methods in which intraoral images of the person are taken using modern technology systems and all necessary procedures for aesthetic smile are planned in a computer environment.

Within the scope of Digital Smile Design, it allows measurements, designs and changes to be made on the images transferred to the computer environment as desired. The possible finished state of the teeth can be shown to the person in advance by making abrasion, insertion, contact point controls, contour changes in the designed teeth. In addition, by combining the images of the designed teeth in the person's mouth with the profile images, it can be shown in advance what kind of smile can be obtained at the end of the application.

Advantages of Digital Dentistry

Today, modern technology has brought comfort to every aspect of life and added confidence and speed to health applications. The methods that emerged with the technological developments in dentistry practices are called Digital Dentistry.

Digital Dentistry applications shorten treatment and recovery times and allow patients to undergo the treatment process with great confidence and comfort. The use of these methods, also called CAD - CAM applications, is increasing day by day.

Digital Dentistry applications have many different advantages. These advantages are

  • The number and duration of treatment sessions are reduced.
