dental implants allows dentists to produce implants with high precision and the
size of patients' teeth. This method reduces treatment time and costs and
increases the accuracy and speed of treatment.

Advanced digital imaging:
Advanced digital imaging devices allow for high-quality, higher-resolution
images, which help dentists make more accurate diagnoses of dental diseases and

Use of artificial intelligence and machine
Artificial intelligence and machine learning technology
helps dentists to identify more complex patterns and patterns in teeth images
and teeth colors, which increases accuracy and speed in diagnosis and

Disease management software:
The development of disease management software that allows remote monitoring
and follow-up of patients' recovery will help dentists to provide better
services to patients and take better care of them.

Intelligent treatment systems:
The use of intelligent treatment systems that allow dentists to monitor and
control the treatments performed increases the quality of treatment and reduces
human errors.


These developments show that digital dental technology
is developing rapidly and by providing new and advanced solutions, it helps to
improve the quality of dental services and improve the oral health of patients.


New 3D printing technology in dentistry

 Advances in 3D printing technology in digital dentistry
have significantly changed the process of designing and manufacturing implants,
dental frameworks, detailed dental models, and other dental components. Below
are some of these improvements:


High speed and efficiency:
Among the main developments of this technology is the increase in speed and
efficiency in the 3D printing process. With the improvement of printed
materials, printing methods, and the use of optimization algorithms, the time
required to produce dental parts has been greatly reduced.

High quality:
Advances in printing materials and the accuracy of 3D printing devices have led
to improved quality of manufactured parts, especially in the production of
dental implants and skeletons.

Variety of printing materials:
Today, a variety of printing materials are available for use in the 3D printing
process in dentistry. This includes materials such as bio-resins, composite
materials, and biodegradable metals.

Adaptability to individual diseases:
Since each patient has unique needs, 3D printing allows dental parts to be
manufactured precisely and as desired for each patient, which increases
compatibility and compatibility with the patient's body.

Reduced cost:
With improved manufacturing processes and the use of more economical printing
materials, the cost of manufacturing implants and other dental components has
been greatly reduced, leading to increased patient access to advanced dental


These developments show that 3D printing technology in
digital dentistry is developing rapidly and provides new possibilities to
improve treatment processes and reduce costs.


Review of software and systems in digital

 In digital dentistry, it is very important to use
different software and systems to perform different activities from diagnosis
and planning to disease management and patient follow-up. Below I mention some
of these software and systems


Medical record management systems:
These softwares help dentists manage medical records and easily view
information such as medical history, radiographs, appointments, and treatment

Imaging and image analysis software:
These software help dentists to analyze radiographic images and digital images
of teeth and provide disease diagnosis for patients.

Treatment planning software:
These software help dentists create and manage appropriate treatment plans for
their patients, including scheduling treatments, scheduling appointments, and
managing medications.

Disease management software:
These software allow patients to easily view and manage information such as
appointment dates, treatment appointments, and required medications.

Office automation systems:
These systems help with the administrative management of dental clinics and
offices, including appointment management, billing, and medication inventory.

Simulation and digital design software:
These software allow dentists to create detailed plans and simulations of
treatment results before starting treatment.

Educational software:
These software help dentists and dental students to improve their skills and
learn about new developments in the field of dentistry.


These software and systems play a very important role in
improving the quality of dental services, increasing the accuracy and speed in
diagnosing and treating diseases, and improving the experience of patients.


A new development in the field of digital

 One of the new developments in the field of digital
dentistry is the improvement and expansion of the use of augmented reality and
virtual reality technologies. By providing interactive and visual experiences
for patients and dentists, these technologies significantly improve the
treatment experience and provide new possibilities in the fields of education,
diagnosis, treatment planning and patient-dentist communication.


Some of the new applications of these technologies in
dentistry are:


Patient education:
Using virtual reality allows patients to experience the real process and
results of the treatment before treatment. This application is especially
useful for patients who are afraid of scary treatments

More accurate treatment planning:
Using augmented reality and virtual reality technologies, dentists can create
accurate models of patients' mouths and teeth and plan more accurate treatment
based on them.

Diagnosis and analysis:
through virtual reality and augmented reality technologies, dentists can easily
view and analyze 3D images of patients' mouths and teeth, which helps diagnose
diseases more accurately and quickly.

Patient-Dentist Communication:
These technologies enable direct and interactive communication between the
patient and the dentist, which can help patients better explain and gain a
deeper understanding of their oral health status.


These developments show that the use of augmented
reality and virtual reality technologies in digital dentistry is developing
rapidly, and by providing new and advanced solutions, it helps to improve the
quality of dental services and the experience of patients.


final word

 With the increasing development of digital dental
technology, the world of oral and dental treatment is rapidly moving towards an
advanced and optimal future. From the use of 3D printing technologies to
produce dental implants and skeletons, to the use of artificial intelligence
and virtual reality for more accurate diagnosis of diseases, every step along
this path helps to improve the quality and efficiency of dental treatments.

 With these new developments, we can hope that the future
of dentistry, with the help of digital technology, will be directed more
towards prevention, more precise treatment, and a better disease experience.
This process not only helps to improve the oral and dental health of patients,
but also improves their quality of life and self-confidence.

 With this in mind, we must seek to use these
technologies intelligently and responsibly, to gain more productivity from
their potential to improve dental services and improve public health.
