In the quest to go digital and to make our clinical protocols entirely digital the first step was to create digital impressions. The best intraoral scanner to create the digital replica of intraoral structures, especially teeth was from Sirona. (Germany), thus making it convenient for both the operator and the patient.
The operator has the advantage of speedy impressions by employing relatively simple procedures. Due to its sleek design and light weight design, the Sirona Omnicam scanner gives accurate measurements that can be sent digitally to CAD/CAM equipped dental lab solutions for additive manufacturing procedures like 3D printing and CAD/CAM milling. These digital impressions are used for creating crowns, inlays, onlays and all other prosthetic fabrications.
Such intraoral scans are used in conjunction with CBCT images to fabricate surgical stents for accurate implant positioning, placement and printed via the 3D printer.
All of these intraoral scanning and digital protocols greatly reduce the clinical working time and makes prosthetic solutions faster.
Sirona Omnicam enables full mouth digital impressions to be made where it can be used for clear aligner fabrication, thus availing a customized tooth aligning option for our clientele.
