Dental technologies and innovations continue to change lives and smiles by providing improved accessibility and precision, as well as patient-centered care. Smart toothbrushes, which track brushing patterns to regenerative treatments that could replace dentures or implant one day are only a few of the latest innovations that are continuing to develop.

Laser dentistry is becoming more common and allows dentists to perform a range of procedures that are less invasive methods, including gum disease treatment and tooth decay elimination. Nanotechnology also improves dental materials. Coatings and fillings are now more akin to natural tooth enamel, while reducing wear. 3D printing on the other hand is changing the face of this industry because it allows the production of complex dental parts quickly and precisely. This is making dentists able to design and fabricate prosthetics without the need to wait for a laboratory making it easier to avoid mistakes and make adjustments.

Digital X-rays and cone beam computed Tomography scans are two other technological breakthroughs that offer high-resolution pictures of the teeth and soft tissue. These diagnostic instruments are more secure and precise than traditional X radiation. They also avoid exposure to harmful radiation.

Virtual reality (VR), which offers the patient a way to help reduce their perception of pain and improve their dental experience. It makes dental treatment less stressful and allows patients to feel less pain. AR is also increasingly used to educate patients, enhance treatment planning and provide a symbiosis of visualizations.
