Technological advances reach all areas of life and, how could it be otherwise, the world of Dentistry is no stranger to this. On the contrary, this profession is characterized by the constant learning, updating of knowledge and research carried out by its professionals. In recent years, these advances have improved significantly.
the quality of patient care, as well as the precision and effectiveness of treatments. And one of the most outstanding developments is the incorporation of the 3D technology, 3D printing and artificial intelligence in the orthodontic field.
More and more Orthodontics and Dentistry professionals are incorporating 3D technology and printing and AI in their clinics. And it is that these have proven to be an invaluable therapeutic tool that allows professionals to accurately and effectively address various treatment needs. In this sense,
the president of the Spanish Society of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics (SEdO), Dr. Juan Carlos Pérez Varelahas pointed out that “it is important to highlight that the use of 3D technology, 3D printing and artificial intelligence in dental clinics is not primarily aimed at selling devices, but rather as a therapeutic use to promptly solve a part of orthodontic treatment”. Thanks to 3D technology, AI and 3D printing, “we can promptly address medical problems diagnosed by the orthodontist through specialized software.”
Likewise, the president of the Spanish Orthodontic Society has highlighted that the use of 3D technology, artificial intelligence and 3D printers in dental clinics
is backed by rigorous scientific studies and quality standards. “It is necessary for the orthodontist to be trained in the proper use of this technology, guaranteeing its correct application and maximizing the benefits for patients”, he added. Technology: the key to achieving more predictable and effective results
millimeter precision of 3D printing, combined with the use of other important advances in 3D technology and artificial intelligence such as the intraoral scanner, the CBCT and the latest software, allows to create orthodontic devices completely customized, ensuring a perfect fit and greater comfort. It also guarantees more predictable and effective results. In this sense, Orthodontics professionals can better plan and control the progress of the treatment they are carrying out, which leads to a much more satisfactory experience for patients and, of course, to high-quality results.
To this are added the
efficiency and speed that contribute this type of technology to the work of Orthodontics and Dentistry professionals, since with the use of 3D technology, artificial intelligence and 3D printers, design times are considerably reduced compared to traditional methods. This not only speeds up the treatment process and shortens the wait for patients, it also drastically reduces the possibility of unwanted movements, as delivery is faster. Something that also translates into a improvement of the patient experiencesince greater confidence and satisfaction are generated in the process.
In addition, the use of these technologies has proven to be a
valuable tool in the research and development of new orthodontic techniques and devices. The constant advancement of 3D technology, artificial intelligence and 3D printing in the fields of Orthodontics and Dentistry drives innovation and promotes excellence in patient care. For this reason, from the SEdO they defend their adoption and use in the day-to-day of dental clinics. These technologies represent a significant advance in the fields of Orthodontics and Dentistry, allowing more personalized, effective and comfortable treatments for patients, in addition to shortening treatment time in many cases. “ 3D technology, artificial intelligence and 3D printing have improved the efficacy and predictability of our treatments”, the president of the SEdO wanted to highlight, indicating that this translates into a higher quality of care.
“The use of 3D technology, artificial intelligence and 3D printers demonstrates an innovative approach and an adoption of advanced technology that helps to highlight and differentiate the clinic as a cutting-edge center in the field of Orthodontics and Dentistry,” said the
Dr. Perez Varela. And, to conclude, he recalled that “we are committed to always offering the best quality standards and continuing to explore new ways to improve the oral health of patients”.
