It is estimated that 25% of single, posterior restorations are done on four teeth, mandibular and maxillary first molars. These posterior restorations can be accomplished through an intuitive digital capture. By adding intraoral scanning to your office protocol, you can become more productive and efficient.
The information gathered is displayed on a flat screen monitor and electronically transferred to your own mill, or a surgical or laboratory business partners. Digital workflows are changing the way we practice dentistry and will make you be more productive. This lecture will review the status quo of the new digital highway and allow you to work hands-on with systems available.
At the end of the program, the participant should be able to:
- Understand what a digital workflow is and how it works
- Visualize how the digital process can increase efficiency and reduce chair time for the patient
- Acknowledge the different types of services available
- Determine what process will work in your practice
