Description

The computerization of our society has definitely penetrated the dental industry and has an impact on material selection and efficiency. A popular dental material, zirconia, may only be made digitally. Although dentists continue to send physical impressions to their dental labs for these restorations, they must be digitized to allow for the CAD/CAM application of zirconia. With this process, a digital model is required. If the doctor initiates the process with a digital optical scan, rather than a physical impression, the information can be analyzed by the doctor for preparation quality. This is done during the scanning process and prior to uploading the information through the Internet to their lab. Subsequently, the lab can use the digital model for restoration fabrication in a timely fashion. With modern tooth modeling algorithms and tools, the design process for the prosthesis is quickly rendered. Therefore, the restoration can be made efficiently and the patient can be delighted with the high-tech feel for the process.
