The different field of dentistry orientated to one unique treatment
- Cloud Technology
Cloud technology for a better communication between labs and clinics and clinics and patients
Nemotec, a Spanish company that is a pioneer in the development of computer solutions for the dental industry, was born in 1992 due to the need to provide doctors, clinics, laboratories and technology companies with tools at the forefront of technology to diagnose, plan and communicate visual and effective treatment plans for patients in dental specialties such as Orthodontics, Orthognathics, Implantology and Aesthetics.
After more than 25 years of experience in the dental sector, presence in 71 countries and extensive knowledge of the market, Nemotec studies the keys and trends expected for 2019, reaching a series of conclusions that will mark the market during the next 12 months:
- 3D printing: Thanks to digital dentistry and Nemotec's multidisciplinary suite, we are able to print 3D products as it allows us to manufacture aligners, indirect bounding, surgical guides, veneers, mock up, splints, etc.
Among the latest advances, 3D printers represent a revolutionary milestone in this evolution of dentistry, assuming an increase in the versatility of the possibilities for patients, a reduction in time that also translates into the implementation of treatment using techniques minimally invasive for the patient and with a high level of precision.
There is no loss of information, errors are reduced, or misunderstandings in the communication between the patient and dentist. Actually, 3D printing opens the way to mass customization, which is the real challenge for the exclusive and quality treatment of each patient.
- Automation and Artificial Intelligence: One of the keys for 2019 is to understand and internalize that digital technology has become one of the best (if not the best) ally of the doctor. The chair side technology allows to offer treatments to gain time in the practice and more predictable treatments. In addition, the automation facilitates the workflow of the doctor and make life easier for the specialist since the technology through algorithms calculates and performs processes that in the analog world took a long time.
- The importance of technology in diagnosis and communication with the patient: A dental diagnosis is more than identifying what happens to the patient, it is finding a balance between oral and aesthetic health that integrates what is called the stomatognathic system.
The advancement of technologies not only serves to achieve the well-being of the patient, but also the expectations when it comes to treating you. The dentist seeks to involve you as well as meet your expectations. The new technologies allow the integration of last advanced 3D recognition of records, resulting in an evolutionary point in what was considered Dentistry.
Now we can not only evaluate the existing teeth, but also their roots or oral problems that at first glance we could not detect.
- Interdisciplinary and facially driven treatments: For a complete oral well-being, on many occasions we are faced with patients with interdisciplinary needs. These treatments consist of the mixture of the different branches of dentistry in a single integral treatment.
Currently this multidisciplinary treatment plan is supported by new technologies, which allows a more complete and accurate diagnosis.
Facial recognition is one of the last jumps in terms of oral technology revolution. It supposes an interest to maintain and improve the functional and aesthetic aspect that now remains precise and prefixed through the new dental software. The new facial scanners, photographs, X-rays and 2D and 3D dental diagnostic and treatment software allow us to maintain a continuous preview of the result, both oral and aesthetic.
- Cloud technology for better communication between labs, clinics and patients: The Internet has been a historic revolution, what before became a letter of long days until the arrival of its recipient, now becomes a simple click and in a few seconds. This is also extrapolated to the dental field.
The integration of the technology into the dental practice involves generating metadata converted into bits, and all bits or digital content is susceptible to being sent through the network.
The dental field takes advantage of this characteristic to, in short, "gain patient acceptance". This consists of the exchange of records, cases and any digital element, for verification by another doctor, for exchange or directly for the preview of the laboratory and the patient and their future acceptance or possible opinion.
