Accurate Digital Impressions with Dr. Effie Habsha
The benefits of digital impression technology in the dental office are well known; greater efficiency, a more comfortable experience for the patient, and convenient electronic storage, to name a few. But what is the secret to capturing an accurate digital impression? Are there certain instances when it is better to revert to conventional means?
Dr. Effie Habsha, a prosthodontist from Toronto, has been using digital impressions for the last eight years. And though she admits the learning curve was very steep, she clearly believes the transition was well worth it.
In conversation with Dr. John O’Keefe, Director of Knowledge Networks CDA, Dr. Habsha shares her considerable insight into the benefits of digital impressions. She walks through her own best practice and gives valuable tips on how to capture margins effectively and deliver impressions that will facilitate predictable, consistent and accurate full-arch and single tooth restorations.
