Imagine a world where your patient could email you pictures from which you could create a 3D model of their entire mouth. We’re not there yet—and maybe we never will be—but Disney wants to get us as close as possible. As Engadget reports, Disney Research has partnered with ETH Zurich to take digital dentistry to a whole new...

[vc_row full_screen_section_height="no"][vc_column][vc_column_text] The future of preventive dentistry - the CALCIVIS imaging system introduces revolutionary new technology to the dental profession By utilising a "unique and highly specific recombinant, luminescent photoprotein", the CALCIVIS imaging system identifies free calcium ions with a distinct light signal.

[vc_row full_screen_section_height="no"][vc_column][vc_column_text] IWATE, Japan: Aiming to evaluate the accuracy of digital impressions for use in implant placement, researchers from Iwate Medical University in Japan have compared optical impression scans from an intra-oral scanner with conventional silicone impressions. The analysis showed that the distance error of the optical impressions was slightly greater that of the conventional method. For many dental practitioners, digital technology has become vital in daily practice. Others, however, still rely on conventional methods used in the profession long before the...

[vc_row full_screen_section_height="no"][vc_column][vc_column_text] “In an information-rich world, the wealth of information means a dearth of something else: a scarcity of whatever it is that information consumes. What information consumes is rather obvious: it consumes the attention of its recipients.

[vc_row full_screen_section_height="no"][vc_column][vc_column_text]Cone Beam CT is arguably one of the most incredible advances the entire dental profession has seen in the last few decades. While we certainly have seen many other innovations such as digital impressions, handpiece technology or laser dentistry, each of those is related to treatment. And we can only treat what we have diagnosed, and we can only diagnose what we can actually see. Put simply, Cone Beam CT allows you to see more. It provides three dimensional views...
