Abstract
Digital technology has been revolutionizing all aspects of our life including dentistry. This is due to the fact that computers operate at a higher speed and accuracy and lower cost than humans do. Nowadays, all aspects of clinical practice including the admission of the patients, collecting and storing the patients’ records, acquiring and processing of patients’ diagnostic information, treatment planning, acquisition of data to form three-dimensional (3D) images, and designing and manufacturing dental restorations and devices are assisted by computers. Therefore learning and using digital technologies have become a necessary part of contemporary dental training programs. This chapter aims to provide all dental students and graduates with an insight into the cutting-edge technologies employed in various aspects of dentistry. It includes intraoral and extraoral digital radiography, cone beam computed tomography, and their clinical applications and limitations, Caries detection, photography and shade selection, occlusal records and temporomandibular joint analysis, computer-aided design-computer-aided manufacturing systems in acquisition and processing of data and manufacturing indirect restorations using milling and 3D printing systems, computer-supported implant dentistry, designing and manufacturing implants, computer-assisted surgeries, application of lasers in dentistry, and finally the new trend in computer-assisted dental education.
