Once the record is in a digital form, laboratories can utilize digital design software to follow the prescription with greater accuracy because of the tools at their fingertips. Providers can review and approve the proposed digital restorative setup from the dental lab by using a digital workflow. This process allows the dental laboratory to improve the turnaround time of production and delivery to the provider.
Dental laboratories are utilizing the digital denture workflow to service customers outside their local markets. The digital technology reduces the impact of the geographical distance between the provider and the dental lab because once the digital file is established no additional transfer of physical records is necessary.
In fact, if a provider adds a scan machine to his or her office workflow, no physical transfer of records will occur and the patient case can get started within minutes.
Dental providers and laboratories that embrace using a digital workflow will reap the many benefits it has to offer. It enhances the overall patient experience and treatment outcome, while having a positive impact on the provider’s and dental lab’s business.
New record-taking techniques, sophisticated scanner hardware and software, advanced base and teeth materials, and precision-milling strategies have been created, which will completely transform the analog denture department. Traditional denture processing equipment will be replaced with today’s dental laboratory technology: computers, scanners, and mills.
These digital processes will bring benefits to the industry that include accuracy of fit and occlusion, a permanent digital record, reduced appointments, and better materials. And, as in the digital conversion of crown-and-bridge, the knowledge and experience of the dental technician will be just as necessary to verify the proper design of the final product as the CAE-driven CAD/CAM software and hardware that will be used to produce it.
