Digital workflows – a paradigm shift in restorative dentistry

Intraoral scanners are much more than a way of taking impressions. They are the key to unlocking digital workflows.

In this presentation Eoin and Angelo will be presenting a complex restorative case from start to finish showing how digital workflows are used for both the clinical and laboratory stages. They will show how digital impressions using Exocad software are used to communicate between dentist and technicians as well as patients. The planning procedures, including occlusal analysis, smile design and digital wax ups, will be demonstrated. This will include methods of sharing diagnostic information and mock-ups between the lab and clinic, as well as tools for sharing this information with patients to facilitate gaining consent. The use of diagnostic provisionals and techniques to the transfer of occlusal schemes to the definitive restorations will be described and the manufacturing procedures for making provisional and definitive restorations will be shown.

  • Know how Exocad software is used to plan, design and manufacture restorations
  • See how digital information can be used as a communication tool between the dental team and patients
