New Trends and Their Use in the Dental Digital Workflow

Being familiar with anatomy and pathology of maxillofacial region especially in conjunction of different pathologies and systemic conditions would help professions to discover occult diseases and maxillofacial pathology cases esp. that has refereed pain earlier. Treatment planning for maxillofacial pathologies involves gathering as much information as possible. Key tools to successful treatment planning are the appropriate digital imaging systems allowing visualization of a site in all three-dimensional aspects with less ionizing radiation as possible.
Digitalization has become an important part of our everyday life. It has also been growing fast in important fields of expertise such as medicine and dentistry where data transfer has become more efficient than ever. In this presentation, it is aimed to show and explore the new trends and technologies based on the literature and own experience in Digital Dentistry such as CBCT, intra-oral scanners, surgical microscope as well as dental PACS systems and their potential usability.
