Digital - still room for improvement? Dentistry is moving into the digital age and technology is advancing at an ever-increasing rate. The big question is, however, just how accurate is digital technology? Can it claim to truly rival or supersede tried and tested analogue techniques? When it comes to the microscopic details of minimally invasive aesthetic dentistry, in my experience, not quite yet.

Digital technology is bringing big developments to dentistry. How do you see the profession adapting to these changes? All businesses have to cope with change at some point of their life cycle, especially if the aim is to grow and develop. Digital dentistry, and the need to move into this field, is given a considerable amount of attention within the profession, but when it comes to actually making the change each business will go through their own unique journey, some adapting more quickly than others.

Reliable adhesion due to high technique tolerance

The clinical success of an adhesive often depends on the technique of the clinician. Total-etch adhesives generally require a "wet bonding" technique. Here the adhesive should be applied onto etched dentin that is slightly moist to avoid desiccation. How wet or dry the dentin should be in order to achieve sufficient bond strength is often very challenging.

Reliable adhesion due to high technique tolerance

The clinical success of an adhesive often depends on the technique of the clinician. Total-etch adhesives generally require a "wet bonding" technique. Here the adhesive should be applied onto etched dentin that is slightly moist to avoid desiccation. How wet or dry the dentin should be in order to achieve sufficient bond strength is often very challenging.
