Evaluating Traditional Analog Versus Single-Visit CAD/CAM Workflows
We are practicing in an incredible era. From diagnosis and treatment planning through to the final restoration, digital technologies have improved the quality of care and the patient experience. However, when we consider the single-visit CAD/CAM restoration, does the “chairside” prosthesis measure up to that of the skilled master technicians? If not, is it reasonable to provide these services to our patients? This presentation identifies the factors in implementing CAD/CAM procedures for the restoration of teeth in the esthetic zone. Such factors explored include material choice, patient personalities and economics. This course will address the when, why, and how pertaining to CAD/CAM and conventional workflows.
