Mervyn will discuss why intraoral scanners are no longer considered new technology, they are impacting the workflow of clinicians as well as the laboratory. Digital models and clearer initial information at the onset of treatment means better fitting appliances and higher quality outcomes at the conclusion of treatment. This data also results in fewer remakes, reduced office visits, easier collaboration, faster turnaround times, greater patient satisfaction and increased referrals.
