With recent advances in technology, design and materials, 3D printers are not only available in most dental labs but are now becoming a popular tool for individual practices thanks to its versatility, ease of use and ability to bring more services in house. Here we look at the latest 3D printers available for dental practices.
Mike Skramstad, DDS, shares how Primeprint fits within his existing digital workflow to produce a 3D-printed wax-up and Primeprint Model resin to show the patient what the finished procedure would look like while also creating guides, temporaries and a Biocopy for final restorations.
Following the COVID-19 shutdown in early 2020, Dr. Mohamed M. Ali, DDS, decided to take a big leap forward with his Minneapolis practice, Lake Shore Dental. As Dr. Ali embraced Dentsply Sirona CAD/CAM technology to provide single-visit dentistry for his patients, his Patterson team was with him every step of the way.
Advanced materials science is changing single-visit dentistry. CEREC Tessera blocks, made of high-performance ceramic material, are the latest example.
For the dentist, a fully-integrated CAD/CAM solution means a practice can perform a wide variety of procedures in a more accurate, fast and easy way. Hear from some of the top dentists in the country who credit their investment in CAD/CAM technology as a main reason for practice growth.
When choosing a CEREC block to work with, given all the choices on the table, it’s important to carefully assess each characteristic of the material in relation to how those attributes will best serve you, your team, and of course, your patients.
This year’s Patterson Ultimate Education Experience event at Dentsply Sirona World will provide a unique virtual experience and the opportunity to learn about the latest innovations offered by Dentsply Sirona.
CAD/CAM technology has been around for years, and more recently, the digital imaging component has become even more popular. Dr. Sameer Puri, director of CAD/CAM at Spear Education Center, explains the value of adding a CEREC system to your office.
