Digital Dentistry for the Future
Dr. Skramstad piqued audience interest with his demo of how CEREC works in conjuction with Galileos technology for high-tech foolproof implant planning and creating custom millable abutments in the office.
MILWAUKEE?Dr. Michael Skramstad made a persuasive, entertaining, and evidence-based argument for incorporating chairside CAD/.CAM technology into the general dental practice. But he didn?t share this video with those attending his Milwaukee session. He does, however, share it with visitor to his Web site. Enjoy ?Why David Letterman needs a CEREC dentist.?
Don?t sweat the powder
Among the common perceptions about CEREC that Dr. Skramstad, and other presenters, addressed was the powdering issue. He showed clinical examples of both powder and powder-free systems recorded live in the mouth to illustrate the advantage of a light dusting powder on the imaging process. And the advantage is speed and precision.
?In a matter of seconds, you have every image that you need for a simple quadrant,? he said. ?With other units, although there is no powder, the compromise is pretty clear. You have to take multiple images per tooth, so a quadrant scan can take well over a minute.?
