DrBicuspid.com Imaging & CAD/CAM Insider

Dear Imaging & CAD/CAM Insider,

Did you make it to the Greater New York Dental Meeting (GNYDM)? If not, you'll want to read this edition's Insider Exclusive, which covers three trends at the GNYDM that DrBicuspid.com observed while attending. Among them were an abundance of signals that even more momentum is gathering for dentistry to go digital.

There is other GNYDM coverage as well. Dr. Gordon Christensen, delved into the importance of cone-beam CT in dental implant treatment during his session "The Best Techniques and Materials for Replacing One Tooth to All of the Teeth."

Also at the meeting, Biolase launched its Galaxy BioMill CAD/CAM system, which can cut a dental practice's monthly lab fees, according to the company.

Carestream has launched a new CAD/CAM line as well, this one introduced at the ADA annual meeting in New Orleans.

Also in the Imaging & CAD/CAM Community, well-known New Orleans dentist Dr. Edmund Kells had a momentous contribution to dentistry: the dental x-ray. Read our profile of him here.

Modern dentistry is shifting from film, and a study surveying hundreds of New Zealand dentists found that digital radiography users were more satisfied with their systems than those using film. Learn what is preventing the latter from adopting digital at this link.

Do orthodontists need a full suite of dental models, facial and intraoral photographs, a set of 2D radiographs, and clinical measurements for each patient? One study suggests otherwise.

There are several signs of a strong imaging market. The U.S. leads the global market for picture archiving and communication systems, according to one report.
