Intuitive Workflow for Same Day Restorations
NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ, May 2, 2014—Daniel C. Delrose, DDS, lectured on the efficiency and consistency of integrating CAD/CAM technology into the clinical workflow. At the Updates in Contemporary Dentistry meeting, he said, "There is no need to gag our patient, when a better restoration can be made with CAD/CAM technology."
Some of the key features of CAD/CAM restorations espoused by Dr. Delrose Introduction to CAD/CAM Dentistry include excellent fit and consistent results. This is because the clinician is in total control of the restoration's surface morphology, contours, contacts, and characterization.
Another advantage is eliminating temporaries. Patients are able to get a better experience and even receive a crown in a single appointment. There is also no need for traditional impression taking and no second appointment injection that some patients dread. Dr. Delrose says this will help the practice offer the patient a "wow" experience, unlike other practices.
In addition, CAD/CAM can help make treatment more efficient by saving time for both patient and practice. Dr. Delrose also emphasized that it helps put creativity and fun back into dentistry.
In an interview with Dental Learning, Dr. Delrose added that he uses the Carestream CS Solutions CAD/CAM system in his office because of its low learning curve, intuitive workflow, and highly accurate restorations. The system includes the CS 3500 camera, CS 9000 or CS 9300 CBCT, CS 3000 milling machine, and the CS Restore software.
