Abstract
Digital dental technologies for impressions, treatment planning & progress monitoring, appliance design, 3D printing and manufacture is transforming thousands of dental practices and labs worldwide. As CAD/CAM continues to replace traditional workflows and become the standard, digital solutions have become a necessary consideration for any orthodontic treatment.
What are the benefits of going digital? How are the workflows different from analogue processes? What are the best strategies for getting started? Finn tracks his journey over the last two years.
