Technological advancements for efficient and effective diagnosis are a major driver for diagnostics applications segment
In therapeutics, dental digital X-ray imaging is used extensively in restorative treatments such as caries treatment, direct and indirect teeth restoration, and root treatment. Due to technological advancements in dental imaging systems and digitization in dentistry, restorative dentistry has undergone significant changes over the years. Dental CBCT systems are one of the most advanced systems used in restorative dentistry. They provide better treatment and planning by providing accurate 3D images of teeth, jaws, and other vital structures.
Moreover, these systems are equipped with virtual treatment planning software which helps dentists in planning treatments. Hence, dentists replace or add such advanced imaging systems to their dental practices to gain competitive edge in terms of better image quality and thus offer better dental treatments. Various other dental digital X-ray imaging techniques such as cephalometric X-rays, intraoral radiography, and panoramic radiography are also used for dental therapeutic applications.
Dental digital X-ray imaging helps criminal detection and forensic dentistry departments to identify suspects based on their dental evidence. These departments use digital dental images to identify the human remains found on the site of crime; assess the intensity in case of bite injury; and examine the extent of abuse in case of children, women, and elder victims. They are also used for estimating the age of the culprit as well as in the civil cases of misconduct.
Conventional film-based X-ray systems used in forensic dentistry applications are time-consuming and cumbersome. Digital X-rays systems help conduct investigations on site and expedite the investigation process. Also, the results can be compared with existing dental database. Such advantages are likely to drive the dental digital X-ray imaging market for forensic applications
