The world of dentistry has come so far! We’ve come a long way from only being told to brush our teeth twice a day (which is still important!) to revolutionary technology in the dentistry field. Here are some of the biggest dentistry trends of 2019.
Going Green In Oral Hygiene
Many different industries are opting in for a greener solution, especially when it involves personal and professional health. Consumers are trying to find products that will help reduce their waste production and are looking for eco-friendly options in all parts of life. The use of bamboo toothbrushes and charcoal toothpaste are two of the most popular products that substitute the use of artificial dental products in this dentistry. You can save the planet while incorporating natural-based products into your oral hygiene, win-win!
Cracks or deteriorated casts are extremely frustrating for patients and dentists. With the advancement of digital impressions software, computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM), this technology has made everyone’s lives easier. Now you can get impressions of your teeth and jaw without the extra hassle and uncomfortable materials.
Dental Group Practices
Group dental practices are on the rise; individual practices are rapidly declining as the financial burden is getting too high for just one practitioner to handle. A joint practice allows costs and challenges to be shared between multiple doctors. Teaming up with other experienced practitioners will increase the value and visibility of your practice too since other doctors usually have a solid client base. By offering all types of dentistry, general dentists, orthodontists, and oral surgeons will be able to dominate the dentistry field together.
Automated Patient Tracking & Management Software
Technology has revolutionized the way we perform tasks. Daily tasks are becoming easier with the use of digital automation technology. There are various ways in which in-office responsibilities are getting completed faster: text appointment confirmation notifications, pre-recorded follow-up appointment voicemails, online patient portal creation, scheduled social media posts and digital marketing efforts, online form submissions and digital data collection and organization via cloud-based storage.
Robot Dentists Artificial Intelligence (AI) & Robotics
Ever thought your dentist would be replaced by a robot? Welcome to 2019. The introduction of robo-dentists will revolutionize dental treatment and how the dentist work with patients. Minimal invasive dental such as filling cavities, teeth cleaning, cap applications and tooth extractions are being performed by robo-dentists. The future is here! By the end of 2019, Al dentistry might be mainstream.
