COLOGNE, Germany: Over the past decade, there have been tremendous efforts in the dental industry to move towards digital dentistry. Now, the era of digital dentistry has finally arrived. New technologies have been introduced to dental clinics and laboratories, and many digital products are now on the market. However, using this digital technology still requires a significant amount of financial investment, as different digital products need to be purchased. Moreover, there can still be difficulties in effectively and efficiently utilising these digital products, even after training courses and practice.
