Technological developments in biomedicine is unstoppable and dental practice as a medical specialty, is no stranger to it, so that any technology applied to medicine is likely to be used in dentistry, both at the molecular level, and surgical, diagnostic or reconstructive. It is difficult to classify the new technologies, but they may be divided into: diagnostic technology, technology planning, technology restorative treatments and technology.

Diagnostic technologies:

-Tomografía Cone beam CT (CBCT): get a very low radiation dose extremely accurate 3D vision of the entire oral and maxillofacial area.

-Luminiscencia For caries detection: allows noninvasively detect incipient caries, with no detectable clinical examination.

Computerized -Periodontograma: to diagnose and see the progression of periodontal disease.

Technology planning:

-Surgery Guided implant dentistry : make noninvasively implant insertion surgery with immediate aesthetics and function.

-Design Digital aesthetic (DSD): allows for perfect prediction complete aesthetic treatment planning.

Digital -Impresiones: make models mouth and teeth without the use of pasta and with extreme precision.

Treatment technologies:

-Laser And phototherapy: the most advanced technology, accurate and less invasive surgical treatment of caries and oral infections and in general of all the oral and dental pathology

-Piezocirugía: It is the most advanced technique of bone surgery and less invasive application in all oral and maxillofacial surgery

-Corticotomías Orthodontic: a revolutionary new technique that allows non-aggressive orthodontic tooth movement and quick and effective orthodontic treatment.

Restorative technologies:

Prothesis dental CAD-CAM is the best alternative both aesthetically and functionally for any type of dental prosthesis.

Of lithium disilicate-ceramics: the highest aesthetic material, better functionality and greater biological adaptation, indicated in all types of reconstructions.

Bone and epithelial -Injertos associated with implants: based on technology-rich plasma and Growth Factors (PRGF) which allow not aggressively regenerate lost tissues.


In fact, high technology is not a series of isolated procedures, but a work philosophy incardinated excellence in all points of the dental treatment.
