Digital dentistry provides endless capabilities for effective, sparing and fast treatment of a wide spectrum of diseases and conditions to patients of all ages. Dr Elena Voeva knows this well. The founder of Voeva Dental is among the leading dentists applying the rapidly developing digitalisation of dentistry in Bulgaria. Today, modern technologies and work principles make an integral part of treatment at Voeva Dental.

What inspired you to specialise digitally planned dental medicine?

I want to have control in orthodontic treatment, and digital dentistry allows me to plan everything to the tiniest detail. It also allows for improved precision in orthodontic, aethetic and implantological treatment. I also chose digital dentistry because I love to challenge myself and to learn new things.

I realised the potential of digital dentistry during a demonstration of an intraoral scanner. A pivotal moment that utterly changed both my life and work. With its improved precision and fine details, digital scanning modelled how I approach both orthopaedic cases (putting crown and veneers) and orthodontic ones, where I now use Invisalign aligners instead of traditional brackets.

I choose what technologies to use at Voeva Dental after attending many trainings and additional certification courses. Of course, successful treatment is the result of not only the technology, but also of how it is used.

Digital dentistry yields best results in what cases and patients?

Digital dentistry is good for the great majority of patients. Examination at Voeva Dental starts with a scan of the patient's teeth, afterwards I show them the image and explain what is going on in their mouth. The intraoral scanner is invaluable for proper diagnosis and can even detect initial caries lesions that would be invisible via traditional examination or X-ray. In our work at Voeva Dental we digitally plan orthodontic cases, including implants placing, and restoration of worn-out teeth, bonding and veneers. With digitally planned surgical leads implant placing is not connected to cutting and stitching, and the patient recovers more quickly. With children, we use digital technologies for caries diagnosis and planning of orthodontic treatment. Children have lots of fun during the process.

In 2023 you won the international award Smile of the Year. How did you deserve this high recognition?

Voeva Dental applied in 6 categories and got awards in 4 of them, including a first place for a case of orthodontic treatment with aligners for teenagers. The jury considered details such as treatment plan and achieved results. However, for me, this recognition is not as important as the recognition of my patients – and I get this evaluation each day in my practice.

Voeva Dental: В света на дигиталната стоматология

Д-р Елена Воева за възможностите на новите технологии за успешно лечение

Дигиталната стоматология дава необятни възможности за ефективно, щадящо и бързо лечение на широк спектър от заболявания и състояния за пациенти от всякакви възрасти. Д-р Елена Воева знае това добре. Основателката на Voeva Dental е сред водещите дентални лекари, прилагащи развиващата се с бързи темпове дигитализация в стомагологията в България. Днес съвременните технологии и принципи на работа са интегрална част от лечението във Voeva Dental.

Какво Ви вдъхнови да специализирате в дигитално планираната дентална медицина?

Държа да имам контрол върху ортодонтското лечение. Дигиталната стоматология ни позволява да планираме всичко до най-дребния детайл. С нея сме в състояние да постигнем по-висока прецизност при ортодонтското, естетично и имплантологично лечение. Избрах дигиталната стоматология и защото обичам да се предизвиквам и да научавам нови неща.

Осъзнах потенциала на дигиталната стоматология по време на демонстрация на работа с интраорален скенер. Моментът беше преломен за мен – оттогава животът и работата ми се промениха. С възможностите си за по-точен и фин детайл, дигиталното сканиране моделира начина, по който подхождам към ортопедичните (поставяне на корони и фасети) и ортодонтските си случаи, в които вече използвам алайнери Invisalign вместо традиционни брекети.

Избирам каква технология да използвам във Voeva Dental след много курсове и допълнителни сертификации. Разбира се, успешното лечение е резултат не само от техниката, но и от начина, по който се работи с нея.

За какви случаи и пациенти е най-подходяща дигиталната стоматология?

Дигиталната стоматология е подходяща за огромния пациентски поток. Прегледът при нас започва със сканиране на съзъбието на пациента, след това аз му показвам изображението и обяснявам какво се случва в устата му. Интраоралният скенер е неоценим за правилната диагностика и може да ни покаже дори начални кариозни лезии, които остават невидими при традиционен преглед и рентгенова снимка. В работата си във Voeva Dental дигитално планираме ортодонтските случаи, включително поставянето на импланти, както и възстановяването на изтрити зъби, бондинг и фасети. С дигитално планираните хирургични водачи поставянето на импланти не е свързано със срязване и шевове и пациентът се възстановява по-бързо. При лечението на деца използваме дигиталните технологии за кариесна диагностика и планиране на ортодонтско лечение. Децата се забавляват изключително много при този процес.

През 2023 г. спечелихте международната награда Smile of the Year. С какво заслужихте тази висока оценка?

Voeva Dental кандидатства в 6 категории, и спечели награди в 4 от тях – включително първо място за ортодонтски случай за лечение с алайнери за тийнейджъри. Журито оценяваше въз основа на детайли като лечебен план и постигнати резултати. За мен външната оценка не е толкова важна, колкото признанието на пациентите ми – а аз получавам тази оценка всеки ден в практиката си.
