Case Information

This Digitized Chairside Restoration case concerns a 20-year-old female patient. The patient complained of bouts of tooth pain and was prescribed a crown-root integrated treatment, root canal therapy, and onlay restoration tooth n°24.

Treatment Plan

  1. Prepare the tooth
  2. Get intraoral data with the Aoralscan 3D scanner
  3. Design the restoration and the model with exocad
  4. Send the design to CAM and mill the restoration and 3D print the model with the AccuFab-D1
  5. Try-in and adjustment
  6. In-mouth try-out

Digital dentistry solutions for Digitized Chairside Restoration

Intraoral scanning is the basis of digitized treatment. Different from the traditional dental restoration process in which impression and plaster model making is needed, intraoral scanning features the following advantages:

  1. Concrete and natural intraoral 3D data: Improves communication efficiency between doctors and patients with a better user experience.
  2. Efficient denture-making process: Saves time and labor.
  3. Online dental management system: Offers doctors and technicians a platform for data transmission and communication, improving cooperation between parties.
  4. Fully digital process: Boosts the efficiency of the dental restoration production process and improves the working conditions of dental technicians.

The Aoralscan intraoral scanner optimizes clinical treatment processes and restoration production. It provides a more comfortable and efficient experience for patients, doctors, and technicians alike.
