“Digital vs Conventional Impressions Study”
This study aims to compare how a single cap best fit on a tooth that is fabricated with digital and conventional impression techniques.
Procedure - Conventional impression
A dental impression is a negative imprint of hard (teeth) and soft tissues in the mouth from which a positive reproduction (or cast) can be form using alginate material. They are made by using a container which is designed to roughly fit over the dental arches ("trays").
Procedure - Digital Scan 1
Direct intra-oral digital scans using Sirona Omnicam software.
Procedure - Digital Scan 2
Direct intra-oral digital scans using Planmeca Planscan software.
Procedure - Digital Scan 3
Direct intra-oral digital scans using 3M True Definition software.
