Handbook of Research on Computerized Occlusal Analysis Technology Applications in Dental Medicine

Book Description

Modern medicine is changing drastically as new technologies emerge to transform the way in which patients are diagnosed, treated, and monitored. In particular, dental medicine is experiencing a tremendous shift as new digital innovations are integrated into dental practice. The Handbook of Research on Computerized Occlusal Analysis Technology Applications in Dental Medicine explores the use of digital tools in dentistry, including their evolution as well as evidence-based research on the benefits of technological tools versus non-digital occlusal indicators. Comprised of current research on clinical applications and technologies, this publication is ideal for use by clinicians, educators, and upper-level students in dentistry.
