“Achieving Ideal Conventional and Digital Impressions”

 

Is this technology ready for prime time or is it better to hold off on the purchase of a unit? Dr. DiTolla has taken many impressions with all of the commercial available digital impression units, making him uniquely qualified to compare and contrast the features, benefits, and shortcomings of the major systems. Dr. DiTolla believes that if the right dentist invests in this technology, there is no faster way to become a better dentist.

 

Course Objectives:

After completing the program, the dental professional should be able to:

  1. Recognize the various digital impression systems and list the features, benefits and shortcomings of each of the major systems.
  2. Be familiar with the hard and soft tissue requirements for making a digital impression vs. making a conventional impression.
  3. Be familiar with the time and cost requirements for these systems, and how a typical digital impression system would fit into their practice overhead structure.
  4. Recognize how models are generated from these system systems, and how a digital impression scanner can be used in a modeless system with a chairside milling unit.
