“Digital dentistry” is transitioning from a catchphrase to the status-quo as dental practices incorporate intraoral scanners, in-office milling machines and design software. Over 30 percent of dentists own an intraoral scanner for digital impressioning (DI) and over 25 percent of dentists provide same-day crowns through CAD/CAM Dentistry. The reason for this growth is that CAD/CAM and DI are mutually beneficial for patients and practices. Doctors can create restorations with an improved fit and aesthetic, which means fewer, faster and more comfortable visits for patients.
To realize these results, doctors and their staff must find a partner that has expertise in each step of CAD/CAM and D.I. workflow. A partner that acts in a doctor’s best interest from the first handshake to the last day before retirement. A partner like Henry Schein.
