Although COVID-19 did its fair share of damage within most medical device markets, the U.S. digital dentistry market suffered minimal losses (a 4% decrease from 2019), and is looking to reach an industry-leading $1.37 billion by 2027. With that being said, the digital dentistry market has conveniently benefitted from the COVID-19 pandemic, with examples provided by intraoral scanners generating digital impressions at a faster rate compared to traditional impressions produced, reducing contact time between dentist and patient.
But, what exactly is digital dentistry? Digital dentistry refers to the use of modern technologies or devices that incorporate digital (or computer-administered) components to carry out dental procedures. In essence, digital dentistry eliminates the need for varying mechanical or electrical tools. Digital dentistry tools can include 3D scanners as well as CAD (computer-aided design) and CAM (computer-aided manufacturing).
