Digitalization is rapidly changing dentistry. I believe these will be the key digital trends for 2023:
The adoption of intraoral scanners by dentists and labs, grew at an extremely fast pace last year. It will continue its climb in 2023. Intraoral scanner (IOS) penetration in the USA is now over 50% according to the ADA with mature global markets showing similar penetration.
In fact, with 3Shape’s TRIOS intraoral scanner, last year we saw the number of TRIOS cases grow by 66%. Every two seconds around the world a case is scanned with a TRIOS. In particular, we see a major pickup in IOS usage for full and partial denture workflows.
