    5 ways technology has changed the implant workflow

    From FDA involvement to improved digital technology, implant technology is evolving all the time.



    Custom prosthetics

    The first big way technology has changed the implant workflow has been the availability of custom abutments. While custom abutments are not new to implant cases, the availability has increased. A few years ago, labs would have a difficult time finding custom prosthetics (outside of expensive UCLA cast abutments) they could control.

    With digital technology in a large percentage of labs, labs are now able to plan the entire restoration (screw- or cement-retained) digitally and provide exceptional restorations for patients. The accuracy of digital information has allowed highly trained teams to deliver accurate restorations quicker and more predictably than ever before. This includes the growing prevalence of modeless restorations. Intraoral scanning of scan bodies can save time and money while providing exceptional accuracy when a case can be done modeless.
