The challenges of obtaining traditional impressions that can affect the quality of the lab fabrication prosthesis include tooth position, patient tolerance for the material, and distortion of impression material because of technique or environmental factors.
Digital imaging can eliminate these factors, resulting in a more accurate prosthesis, which reduces chair time and increases efficiency since remakes are reduced. The ability to create a digital image with a capture device that can later be coupled with a milling unit allows the dentist the ultimate in versatility—the ability to provide “now” dentistry for routine one or two units. This provides a valuable service to patients while maintaining the flexibility of using a lab for more extensive restorative procedures.
This course will give the dentist a better perspective on how this technology can be a good fit for his or her office.
