THE FUTURE OF DENTISTRY IN INDIA

THE FUTURE OF DENTISTRY IN INDIA

The number of people who will not be able to afford dental care is rising. According to a report by the World Bank, India has one of the highest rates of dental diseases and malnourishment among its population.


As the population ages and increases, there will be an ever-increasing need for dentists who are skilled in diagnosis and treatment.


The country's dental industry is worth Rs. 1,50,000 crores—and it's expected to grow at a rate of 11% per year. The Indian population is also growing rapidly, and there are more than 20 million people who don't have access to affordable dental care.


As more people are able to afford dental care, there will be an increasing demand for dentists who can provide quality service at a reasonable price.


The future of dentistry in India is being paved by AI-powered imaging, diagnosis and additive manufacturing.


Dental Imaging & Diagnosis


Intra Oral Scanners

Intra Oral scanners use a high-resolution camera to capture images of teeth and surrounding tissues in 3D. It can then analyze these images to detect early signs of oral cancer or other diseases. Intra Oral scanners are currently used in dental offices around the world to help diagnose and treat oral diseases, but they require a dedicated dentist to operate them.


By automating this process, we can make it accessible to more people.


CBCT (Cone Beam Computed Tomography)

CBCT (Cone Beam Computed Tomography) is an advanced type of X-ray imaging that uses computer technology to create three-dimensional images from two-dimensional X-rays. It's particularly useful for imaging bones, and for planning the accurate placement of implants.


Dental Prostheses

Dentistry is a growing field, and dentists are looking for new ways to treat patients. In recent years, there has been a growing interest in in-house manufacturing of dental prostheses.


Dental prostheses are used to replace missing teeth or other parts of the mouth when they are lost due to injury, disease, or trauma. They can be used in combination with other treatments such as extractions or dental implants to restore function to the patient's mouth.


In order to maximize treatment outcomes and reduce costs, dentists are looking at new ways to manufacture prostheses on-site. This allows them more control over quality control and production processes which improves patient outcomes by allowing them to customize their own prostheses rather than having an outside manufacturer make them for them. It also reduces overhead costs since there is no need for expensive third-party manufacturing facilities like those required by traditional manufacturing methods.
