On completion of this program, the student should be able to:

2. List the differences among current impression materials

Modern-day dentists have the luxury of choosing among several methods for fabricating indirect restorations. Although the traditional workflow has been effective for decades, technological advancements are changing the norms and providing practitioners with a more efficient option. Digital impressions and chairside CAD/CAM systems allow providers to deliver high-quality restorations to patients faster and in fewer appointments. This course compares the traditional analog workflow with the digital approach, as well as highlights how digital impressions and CAD/CAM technology can help streamline restoration fabrication and improve clinical efficiency.
