How does the future of digital impressioning affect Dental Labs?
This is the transformation from
conventional to digital dentistry. Soon some very tangible processes
will go away with digital impressioning: shipping of impression from
dentist to lab, disinfection of impression, pouring impressions, base
and point model. die cutting, trimming and articulation.
This digital impressioning will take you out of the
stone age into infinite possibilities.
