Digital impression systems in dentistry are quickly gaining popularity today. However, many clinicians are not aware of the latest advancements as well as the scope of indications and potential. There are many systems vying for the marketplace and sorting through them can be confusing for the dentist interested in incorporating the technology.
This program will introduce emerging concepts in digital workﬂow using intraoral scanners and their application into restorative and surgical dental practice. In addition to reviewing available optical scanners on the market, 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 for smile design, restorative, removable and implant dentistry. Capabilities of 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 be accomplished with optical scanners. Unique features made possible with digital scanning and practice value will be discussed. This is a two-part lecture and Dr. Rajan will return in January to continue the discussion.
Participants will earn 2 continuing education credits for attendance.
