In this day and age, dentures are no longer a punishment for poor oral hygiene, illness, oral trauma, or drug use. In fact, according to the American Academy of Implant Dentistry, “More than 30 million Americans are missing all their teeth in one or both jaws.” Fortunately, thanks to new breakthroughs in the dental industry, like using digital technology to create dentures, fewer people are now complaining about losing their teeth.
Digital dentistry uses Computer-Aided Design (CAD), Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAM) and Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) manufacturing technology to create dentures more accurately and in a shorter amount of time than ever before. Because this technology is so new, there are still many myths circulating about digital dentures. To set the record straight, dentists, denturists, dental lab owners, and prosthodontists should consider the following facts surrounding AvaDent’s digital dentures:
- They can now be designed to look almost identical to natural teeth
- They are thinner, lighter, stronger, and more bio-hygienic than traditional dentures
- They have a better fit compared to other dentures
- They are more durable
- They can be created within the course of 5 short days as opposed to 30 or more.
The Future of Digital Dentistry
AvaDent has already come so far in revolutionizing the way the public thinks about dentures, but there are certain areas that can still be improved upon. For example, we must still figure out how to create digital bite records and impressions that will further improve fit and make the overall manufacturing process even more efficient.
The future of prosthetic dentistry will build on the new methods of digital record taking, thereby reducing the amount of human error that is involved in the creation of the appliances. This computer-based technology will also be used as the foundation for new innovations in the future.
