Straumann Cares Pic.Technology is deeply ingrained in our personal lives, but what about our professional lives as dentists? Clinical dentistry is embracing the application of digital technologies to replace the analog techniques with which we are so comfortable. While this is especially true in impression taking and chairside milling, processes can be digitized at each phase of restorative and implant treatment, virtualizing the patient from diagnosis through prosthesis delivery.True Definition Mobile

We will explore the technology to understand its capabilities, advantages, disadvantages, limitations, and impact on patient care. We will also discuss the new roles of the care team, including the dentist/laboratory relationship. Finally, we will examine the scientific evidence surrounding the routine clinical use of these emerging technologies
for the evolving virtual dental patient.

Participants will also have the opportunity to experience intra-oral scanning devices, including 3M True Definition, Carestream 3600, and Straumann Cares.
