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.

Learning Objectives

  • Learn why you should consider digital impressions even though your current process works well. Look at the workflow as well as the cost analysis and ROI.
  • Should you consider making your own restorations? Look at the materials available as well as laboratory workflow. Look at the ROI of in-office same-day restorations.
  • Look at the current status and future of digital impressions. Learn details of the products and software available and in development.
