Dental technology and innovations continue to transform smiles and lives through improved access, precision and patient-centered care. Smart toothbrushes, which track brushing patterns to regenerative treatments that could replace dentures and implant in the near future are just a few of the latest innovations that continue to evolve.

Laser dentistry is becoming more widespread. It allows for a variety of treatments that can be done using less invasive methods like gum disease and tooth decay removal. Nanotechnology also enhances dental materials. Fillings and coatings are now more like natural tooth enamel and reduce wear. 3D printing is, however is revolutionizing the industry by allowing it the ability to make complex dental components quickly and precisely. This makes dentists able to design and manufacture prosthetics, without having to wait for a lab making it easier to avoid mistakes and make adjustments.

Digital X-rays as well as cone beam computed Tomography scans are two additional technological breakthroughs that offer high-resolution images of teeth and soft tissue. These diagnostic tools are more precise and safer than traditional X-rays, preventing exposure to harmful radiation.

Virtual reality (VR) is also transforming the dental experience by providing a distraction to decrease patient discomfort and make the process less stressful. In the same way, augmented reality (AR) is increasingly being used as a method of educating patients and help plan treatment through immersive visualizations of their results.
