Today more than ever, the journey from a prosthodontic treatment plan to the final restoration requires tremendous coordination between the dental laboratory and the end-user, the restorative clinician. Does the migration from analog to a digital workflow create for the dentist and ultimately the patient, a superior solution? And, if so, how do we begin to integrate these technologies into the dental office? The Perio-Prosthodontic evolution from teeth to implants for tooth replacements pose an additional set of other issues that we now face. The architectural design of the final restoration needs to be evaluated from both a pre- and post-surgical standpoint. Implant supported restorations require a decision on cementable and screw retained restorations. Digital CAD/CAM technology now creates the opportunity to manufacture customized solutions on a routine basis. Both new and old materials can be used to fabricate restorations to an extremely accurate fit creating new and promising restorative options. Previous cement retained protocols can now be changed to allow a screw retained restoration. An in-depth evaluation of both OEM and third party componentry along with some of the manufacturing limitations is critical. Ultimately, close coordination with our dental laboratory technicians and partners is imperative.

Join Kris Schermerhorn, CDT, for a discussion around current trends in 3D printing premium dentures as well as what one can expect in the future. The use of 3D Printing technology in the industry is growing, and as the industry changes, both dentists and technicians alike want to streamline workflows and increase efficiencies without sacrificing quality for the patient. Kris will share his views on how to produce esthetic, high-impact premium dentures with fewer technicians, less equipment, and shorter turnaround time.
