Digital Dentistry and Workflows
Digital impression systems in dentistry are quickly gaining popularity today. Yet not all practitioners are aware of the latest advancements as well as the scope of indications and potential. There are many systems available vying for the marketplace and sorting through them can be confusing for the dentist interested in incorporating the technology.
This program will introduce new concepts in digital workflow using intraoral scanners and their application into restorative dental practice. A review of current peer reviewed literature will be considered supporting a rationale for using digital impressions in many clinical scenarios. Indications as well as contraindications for digital impressions will be reviewed as currently appropriate in 2017 for restorative, removable and implant dentistry. Capabilities of 3D milling and 3D printing in and out of the dental office will be discussed as well.
In addition to evidence based usage of the technology, digital scanning best practices will be presented as well as multiple clinical cases showing what can accomplished using available IOS systems. Unique features made possible using digital scanning and practice value will be discussed.
