Impression and Restoration Technology in Dentistry

October 12th, 2007 · No Comments

The next big boom in clinical dentistry may be how we take impressions. There are a lot of companies working on digital impressioning now. If it catches on, it will completely replace how we do impressions and how labs fabricate crowns. It’s going to be the next real rage. I had a chance to see the Brontes by 3M last summer. It’s certainly one of the best I’ve seen, but I can’t predict what the saturation will be. Check them out online and see what you think.


The other thing that’s interesting is the E4D, which is the emerging chairside unit that competes with Sirona. I’ve done beta testing with the E4D for the past few months. The software, the laser scanner – it has very interesting benefits.
