About the Course

Digital impression scanning is the hottest topic in dentistry. Despite being available for over 30 years, it is still a new process for many practitioners. We will review the current scanners as well as a few coming soon. There will be a discussion of in-office vs laboratory fabrication of restorations, milling and a brief look at 3D printing.

Follow the workflow from digital impressions, Conebeam CT, implant and restoration planning and lab processes all with the latest digital devices including CAD/CAM. The flow begins with digital diagnostics, 3-D impression devices, CAD/CAM systems, cone beam volumetric technology, software, and implant simulation, related laboratory services and equipment, and other exciting emerging products.

This session will enable participants to:
• Learn details of the current and future products
• Ask questions such as, shoul you consider making your own restorations, or should you plan on getting rid of your impression material?
• Learn the clinical process from diagnosis to final treatment
• Learn the basics of conebeam technology and units.
• Understand the basics of surgical guides and implant planning
