Digital Impression Workflow & In-Office Milling Using CS Solutions
This course will describe a new reality in the creation of CAD –CAM generated restorations. Carestream dental has created a system which allows the user to generate ceramic restorations in office or through an internet portal to a dental laboratory. The system will allow dentist to create single unit ceramic restoration, implant abutments, printed models for orthodontics, and in the future precision implant surgical guides. The course will cover the CS3500 camera acquisition unit, its use, and export of images to the Restore software for restoration design to be milled in office, or export the image file to a desired dental milling laboratory. The design phase using the Restore software and the CS 3000 milling unit will be covered in depth so the viewer will be familiar with the CS system so they will be able to fabricate a milled ceramic restoration in either an open format, milling laboratory or a closed format in their office.
