Computerized Dentistry for Private Practice: Abutments, Ceramics, and Occlusion
Expensive? Unproven? Not ready to change? Dr. Dean Vafiadis challenges all restorative dentists by describing and defining the state-of-the art of Cad/Cam technology for today’s dental practice. He lays the groundwork for precision, computerized milling in private practice by discussing why this should be part of every dentist’s armamentarium, how it works, and which system in right for you. In utilizing these new technologies, Dean reviews the steps necessary to ensure success, what problems you can expect to encounter, how to solve them, and in the end, how to fulfill your patient’s high expectations. The shortcomings of computerized dentistry are also discussed.
For those not ready to embrace in-office Cad/Cam technologies, Dean’s course is a primer for practice management relative to what is necessary for a successful consultation for restorations in the aesthetic zone, how to utilize software for optimum implant placement, and how to approach these complex cases and demanding patients via digital dentistry.
