Is anyone out there using impression scanning at their lab and how are the models coming out? Which system? Models printed or milled? Have you compared them to the same impression poured by your traditional method? Can anyone verify if it is really saving them time and/or money?
we used the dental wings impression scanner at reliable dental lab and then had the models printed on object - they came out ok
the fit is fine, i think with the digital impression scanners this will overtake the impression scanners
i cannot speak for the accuracy of the digital impression scanners that a lab may use to scan an impression
i will find out more at lab day this weekend
