Digital Dental Revolution

The Learning Curve
For many years systematized and well-established conventional protocols have been used in prosthetic rehabilitations, yielding results that met clinicians' expectations and often exceeded those of patients. Over time the advent of new technologies and new materials has enabled the dental team to create prosthetic rehabilitations with an accuracy and precision that were previously difficult to obtain.
Today, intraoral scanning technology is one of the most exciting new areas in dentistry, with three-dimensional digital reconstruction of the oral structures facilitating a wide range of procedures in fields such as prosthodontics, implant dentistry, and orthodontics. Currently available intraoral scanners overcome many of the limitations and disadvantages of traditional impression procedures while maintaining a high level of accuracy, making them an efficacious alternative to conventional impression techniques.
In this book, the authors introduce the protocol they have used in their own practice, integrating new digital technologies and advanced materials with experience gained from using traditional techniques to provide restorations with optimal strength, esthetics, and function while reducing treatment times and improving patient comfort. Many cases are presented, highlighting the modified protocols the authors have developed over time with their increasing knowledge of new materials and the ongoing development of new technology and demonstrating a level of quality in the results that is on par with if not superior to that achieved using conventional methods.
