How will digital impressions enhance one’s practice?
Initially, digital impressions can take as much or more time than traditional impressions. However, the real time saving is in the precise fit of the final restoration and fewer incidents of remakes. Our clinical experience and research shows that seating/adjustment time is reduced by about 1/3. As dentists gain experience, the scanning time is reduced and in some cases digital impressions can be faster than traditional impressions.
