Advances in Digital Dentistry, in association with DDS Lab, on Tuesday, October 24th, 2017, at DDS Lab, is a unique way to continue your education and learn more about how digital dentistry is changing the way general dentists, oral surgeons and laboratory technicians interact with one another and plan treatment. Incorporation of CAD/CAM technology for restorative solutions can help deliver natural-looking, esthetic results for patients. Connectivity between current CAD/CAM scanners and intra-oral scanners allows the restorative doctor to take a digital impression, make any occlusal modifications chairside, and send the file to the laboratory to design the restoration.
This program will allow you to see and demo the IO Scanner as well as take a tour of the DDS Lab facility. As well as review recent advances in digital technology, the increasing importance of the partnership between dentists and their lab, the difference between various materials used for copings and abutments, surgical planning software for implant placement and restoration and the many benefits available to the treatment team when using digital dentistry solutions.
