Divya Jha (Moderate) says
Digital dentistry and CAD/CAM have already nearly automated the processing of majority prosthesis. Once, patient handling and individualisation of patient treatment is processed then, it can be fully automated. But since even humans rely heavily on experience gained to make these decisions, it will be difficult in the near future
