3D Imaging and Digital Dentistry

Digital dentistry may be defined in a broad scope 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 CAD/CAM (computer aided design/computer aided manufacturing) to those that may not even be recognized, such as computer-controlled delivery of nitrous oxide.

There are many other areas of digital dentistry available, and many more are being researched. It is an exciting time to be in the dental profession as more technologies are being introduced that make dentistry easier, faster, better, and — most important — enjoyable.

  • CAD/CAM and intraoral imaging — both laboratory- and clinician-controlled
  • Computer-aided implant dentistry — including design and fabrication of surgical guides
  • Digital radiography — intraoral and extra oral, including cone beam computed tomography (CBCT)
  • Electric and surgical/implant hand pieces
  • Occlusion and TMJ analysis and diagnosis
  • Lasers
