Bringing the A.R.T. back in dentistry - Align Restore Transform


In the realm of modern dentistry, a paradigm shift is unfolding as digital technology becomes a cornerstone of everyday practice. This transition is not just about adopting new tools but is a profound integration of the ART philosophy—Align, Restore, Transform—with state-of-the-art digital solutions. The recent exocad Insight meeting in Mallorca in May 2024 showcased how these technologies are not merely enhancements but are essential to the future of dental care. Here, we delve into the importance of this integration and the transformative impact it has on both practitioners and patients.

The Core of ART in Dentistry

Align, Restore, Transform—these three words define a comprehensive approach to dental care that emphasizes holistic treatment planning and execution. But what does each element entail when infused with digital technology?

- Align: The use of digital scanners and advanced imaging techniques to achieve precise diagnostics and treatment planning. Aligning not only the teeth but the treatment objectives with patient expectations and clinical realities.

- Restore: Leveraging CAD/CAM technologies, 3D printing, and digitally fabricated restorations to ensure that each restoration is not just functional but also aesthetically pleasing and long-lasting.

- Transform: Utilizing digital tools to transform the patient experience, from reducing treatment times to enhancing comfort and ultimately ensuring superior outcomes with minimal invasive procedures.
