There is much talk about digitalisation in dental surgeries -– is it a new trend?
The trend began around 20 to 30 year sago and was significantly shaped by our introduction of CEREC, a system for the computer-aided manufacturing of dental restorations, including crowns and bridges. The trend has intensified increasingly. As the leading industry innovator, we’re developing the digital technologies in such a way that they interact with one another and thereby increase the safety and efficiency of treatments.
How do you mean?
Today, with the combination of 3D X-ray and CAD/CAM systems, one can virtually plan an implantation very precisely. Or one can, on the basis of images from an intraoral camera, construct a crown on the computer and build it right in one’s own practice.
