Digitalisation of the dental studio also step by step
2 November, 2021
How do you go about digitising your dental studio? Obviously, this is a difficult transition to make overnight, because in addition to purchasing the equipment, a training session is essential to learn how it works and, consequently, to exploit its full potential of the digital Dentistry .
But what are the essential elements for digitising a studio? What actions need to be taken and what equipment is needed for a 2.0 studio?
The workflow of the digital dentistry
Undoubtedly, the first aspect to consider is the identification of the first obsolete tools to be replaced, so there is no doubt that buying scanning solutions is the start of a digitisation process.
Then software is needed to work on the scans, making plans and designs for the individual patient. In this way, the entire project to be realised and necessary to solve the problems of the individual will be sent to the dental technician laboratory.
Finally, it might also be worth considering the possibility of producing prototypes. This means physically building a digital test model to check its real functionality and accuracy.
In essence, therefore, the step-by-step guide to digitising a dental studio consists of three key points to be followed in order:
Preparation (e.g. diode laser)
Scanning (e.g. intraoral scanner or benchtop scanner)
Planning and design
The important thing, however, is to start slowly, meaning not to activate everything at the same time, since getting used to the new digital organisation involves not only buying the equipment, but also experimenting with it and getting to know it in detail, so as to be able to guarantee the patient the best in terms of competence and performance.
