Digital Restorative Dentistry: Ready ? Steady ? Go !
The digital applications began more than twenty years ago in dentistry. So why is dentistry not digital in 100% of the practices?
There are three possible answers to this question ; the acquisition and confection systems are not yet reliable enough, or they are too complicated to use, or they are too expensive, or all three at once?
This presentation proposes to examine these questions, without taboos or commercial accents, in restorative dentistry, prosthetics and aesthetics, with the point of view of a general practitioner at the diagnostic and therapeutic stages.
