This presentation will focus on the use of digital impressioning and CAD/CAM techniques in routine dental practice. First conceived more than 40 years ago it is only recently that CAD/CAM dentistry has developed to be an integral part of most clinical procedures. The complete range of CAD/CAM topics will be discussed and illustrated, extending from in-office milling of single partial and full-coverage restorations to more complex esthetic and extensive reconstructions. In addition to CAD/CAM for restorative procedures there will also be a discussion of its application for treatment planning.
This session is also part of the Digital Dentistry Forum.
