State-of-the-art in Digital Impressions

Abstract Body: Digital impressions are constantly evolving and thriving more and more in the dental office. While the number of intraoral scanning devices is increasing and updates of current systems happen on a regular basis, the question is still how to use these, often expensive, devices to the best effort. Accuracy, ease of use, scanning technique, clinical indication are some of the keywords that always connect with digital impression systems.
The aim of this lecture is to give an actual overview of digital intraoral impression systems. The level of accuracy and the comparison to well-established conventional impression techniques will be shown. The clinical indication based on accuracy and scan strategy can then serve as a guideline for the dentist, whether or not to use such systems in the dental office right now.
