Laser dentistry is becoming more popular which allows you to perform a variety of treatments with less invasive methods, such as gum disease treatment and tooth decay elimination. Nanotechnology can also improve dental materials. Fillings and coatings are now more akin to natural tooth enamel while reducing wear. Additionally, 3D printing is reshaping the field with the capability to produce intricate dental parts quickly and precisely. It is now possible to let dentists to design and make dental prosthetics themselves without the need for an lab. This decreases the chance of errors and allows for adjustments.

Digital X-rays and cone beam computed Tomography scans are two other new technologies that provide high-resolution images of teeth and soft tissue. These diagnostic tools are more precise as well as safer than traditional X-rays, and prevent exposure to harmful radiation.

Virtual reality (VR) is a method of providing a distraction for patients to help reduce their perception of pain It is also altering the dental experience.
