Course Description

Recently, computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) technology became popular since CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) was introduced as the first dental chairside system in the mid-1980s. There has been an increase in the number of available chairside systems in the last couple of years. Main reasons for this is that intraoral scanners have become increasingly better, smaller, and faster, while the design software has become more user-friendly. 

Many work steps are now automated, and a very large range of materials is now available for dental chairside applications. These advances have driven the rapid increase in the range of indications for chairside dentistry in the areas of prosthodontics, dental implantology, and orthodontics, and have paved the way for more novel treatment and treatment planning strategies. Literature reported that intraoral scanner-based digital impression techniques are superior to conventional impression techniques in certain respects. Moreover, the quality of fit of digitally designed dental restorations is constantly improving because of advances in milling machine technology. Due to the sheer number of new possibilities, it is only a matter of time before chairside systems become a standard component of dental practice. This presentation reviews the actual advantages and limitations of the chairside workflow, and provides a summary of all chairside systems available today.

Course Objectives

At the conclusion of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Discuss latest trends in digital dentistry
  • Identify current intraoral scanners, CAD/CAM materials, and their clinical applications.
  •  Describe current standards for digital workflow techniques.
