Globally, several HealthTech and MedTech companies are actively involved in the dental industry, and the field is witnessing new and innovative solutions aimed at providing greater comfort, affordability, and ease in treatment and care with each passing day.
One of the most significant technological advancements in dentistry in recent years has been 3D printing. 3D printing has already had a considerable impact on the dentistry business, enabling the construction of custom dental instruments as well as implants, bridges and crowns that are suited to a patient’s specific dental structure. Today, 3D printing technology continues to improve, allowing for even more precise and accurate dental restorations.
With the same goal of advancing dentistry, SmileBay Signature, a premium flagship dental facility in Malaysia’s northern region, thrives on the most recent trends and developments in the industry, and is consistently at the forefront of identifying and putting into practice the most recent technological advancements in the dental industry.
SmileBay Signature has its own dedicated in-house Digital Dental Lab, which houses 3D printing systems, among others. This enables dental surgeons to prioritise and provide patients with higher standards of quality, comfort and more, while also practising the most up-to-date dental techniques. Having its own Digital Dental Lab allows it to ensure the quality, precision and fast delivery of dental prostheses, which include veneers, crowns, bridges, titanium bars for implant prosthesis and more.
In addition to 3D printing systems, the Digital Dental Lab is equipped with computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing (CAD-CAM) systems, and is manned by highly trained dental technicians, making it an indispensable component, particularly in providing full mouth rehabilitation and same-day dentistry. The availability of cutting-edge dental technology at this premium outlet ensures that all patients receive excellent dental care.
According to Dr. Ellie Tan, a dentist there, one of the most promising innovations that has the potential to change the landscape of dentistry is the 3Shape scanner. “It has transformed the field of dentistry by capturing 3D images of a patient’s teeth and gums. Patients no longer have to endure messy and uncomfortable impressions. Furthermore a 3Shape scanner makes the procedure simple and quick, and speeds up workflow because it can directly connect to the Digital Dental Lab,” she explained.
When asked about how SmileBay Signature uses the 3Shape scanner to optimise one’s dental health, Dr. Ellie shared that the 3Shape scanner can reduce a patient’s mouth opening time, making it easier for dentists and patients to get a clearer view of the whole dentition. “This technology is able to reveal dental conditions such as tooth decay, periodontal health, impacted teeth, cysts and tumours that may not be visible during a regular dental examination.”
Dr. Liew Xin Yoong, another dentist there, concurs that SmileBay Signature houses a variety of advanced dental technologies such as the Intraoral camera, TRIOS intraoral scanner, digital x-ray machines and cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) system. “Using the TRIOS intraoral scanner allows us as dental surgeons to speed up the clinical workflow when doing crowns and bridges. A full-mouth scan provides clear images of one’s oral condition. This is also a great tool to help patients understand what’s happening in their mouths and what needs to be addressed first. It becomes a transparent channel of communication with patients and helps in treatment discussion,” she added.
