Workflow Optimization, Improved Efficiency, and Faster
Turnaround Time of Devices Drive the Demand for Digital Dental Solutions

Dental practices and dental laboratories in Italy have recognized the
importance of adopting digital dental solutions. Digital dental
solutions continue to witness substantial growth and are expected to
continue expansion as business models and significant value offerings
continue to evolve in tandem with the fast-paced world of connected
health. Digital dental solutions are also increasingly being utilized in
diagnosis and restorative dentistry, especially in implant and oral
treatment planning. Despite higher efficiency and clinical
effectiveness, high cost of digital dental solutions has been one of the
key market growth restraints, especially in the solo practices.

Dental practices and laboratories are moving toward digitization of
their practices to improve the workflow efficiency and increase the
accuracy. This drives the demand for digital dental solutions such as
CAD/CAM solutions and digital imaging systems. On their part, vendors
are launching new device scanners that will meet the needs of different
types of dental practices and their workloads. Digital dental solutions
also enable dental practices to decrease the turnaround time of devices
manufactured in dental laboratories and improve diagnosis and impression
accuracy while saving on the cost in the long term.

The biggest challenge is the high cost of digital dental solutions
compared to the existing solutions in the market. As more than 75% of
all dental practices are solo practices, affordability becomes a key
criterion for the adoption. Moreover, interoperability and software
platforms of digital systems should be compatible with each other,
thereby enabling dental practices and dental laboratories for smoother
workflow. The high investment cost and capital expenditure involved in
hardware procurement will continue to be the biggest challenge for
adoption in the near term of 3-5 years.

In terms of patient awareness, adoption of digital platform by patients
for education and communication is growing rapidly. The adoption of
digital technologies by dentists or dental professionals is slow
compared to patients and public. The demand from patients is likely to
push the dentists to adopt more digital technologies to reduce the
waiting time and improve the current aesthetic options provided in the
field of dentistry.
