Trends in Implant Dentistry Model-Less Restorations

Growing ranks of clinicians are using chairside digital impression systems to save money and time on their restorations. They benefit from working with a fully integrated digital dental lab that can produce restorations entirely from a digital impression – without a physical model. Ease of use and accuracy make digital impressions a superior option for a wide range of restorations. In addition to crowns, bridges and veneers, custom implant abutments can be produced directly from a digital impression. Model-less restorations are priced lower, exhibit a better fit and cut the in-lab working time in half. They deliver more benefits for less money, and the dental community is taking notice.
