Gordon J. Christensen, DDS, MSD, PhD & Tim Palmer, BS Chief Scientific Officer, CR Foundation
Clinical research has shown that scanning impressions is more accurate and has more desirable characteristics than conventional impressions, including potentially lower cost. Are you ready to make digital impressions work in your practice? Making digital impressions for crowns and fixed prostheses has been available for over 30 years, and recently, it has had rapid increase in use as more adequate and less-expensive scanners have become available. Relatively few practitioners use in-office milling, but in-office scanning combined with in-lab milling is growing rapidly and is predicted to dominate procedures in the future.
This video demonstrates easy clinical use of scanners, how to get the scans to a laboratory nearby or to one in your facility, a comparison of in-office and in-lab milling, overcoming common challenges, and the financial and clinical advantages of scanning impressions. Scanning is rapidly becoming the preferred impression technique. Get familiar with this concept and see how your practice can benefit!
