Course Description

The conventional dental impression using the tray technique has long been the gold standard of reproducing the intraoral tissues of the mouth. With the ever-increasing advancements of digital technology in dentistry, the development of intraoral digital scanners and 3D printers is rapidly transforming and revolutionizing the way dental treatment is delivered, particularly in the fabrication of models, crowns, surgical guides for implant dentistry, aligners and appliance therapies and many other applications. Not only do these systems have great value for creating highly accurate restorations and prostheses, they provide an excellent tool for patient education and aid to reduce patient discomfort in the impression-making process.

Early generations of scanners and printers were clumsy, difficult to use and lacked accuracy. In recent years, new and improved systems have been introduced that are user-friendly with greater compatibilities.

This course will present the fundamental science and clinical implementation of intraoral digital scanning and 3D printing that can be incorporated into dental practice. The presentation will review the latest advances in its use as well as the digital workflows that can be implemented for dental treatment. Hands-on components on each day will provide opportunities to manipulate several current digital scanning systems on provided models and on each other for live patient experience. Resources including software, templates and clinical guidelines will be provided to enhance and support learning after the course.

Course Objectives

At the conclusion of this event participants should be able to:

  • Understand the fundamental principles behind the technology of intraoral digital scanning and 3D printing
  • Develop hands-on experience using provided digital scanning and 3D systems
  • Have hands-on experience with 3D printing of scanned models
  • Understand digital workflows that can be created from intraoral scanning
  • Use multiple types of software to manipulate digital models
  • Manipulate models using digital smile design and digital wax-ups
