The second part of the Tech Census offers insight from DPR Technology Editor Dr. John Flucke on the five technology categories covered. This section focuses on CAD/CAM technology.

While many doctors have embraced the idea of CAD/CAM, many others are still on the sidelines. I think many doctors, when they think of this product category, think that it requires in-house milling of restorations. However, this product category now also encompasses digital impression systems because they are also a type of CAD/CAM product.

I have both a digital impression system and a CAD/CAM system in my office and we use both, depending on the clinical situation and the time frame involved.

I can say with confidence that these systems are definitely ready for prime time. It’s now a rare occasion when we need to take a physical impression in my office. Our analysis shows that our workflow is better and that we are more productive. Patients also love this type of treatment. Doing away with impressions is one of the things your patients will really love you for!
