Dental Practice Management Survey: Dental Molds & Digital Dental Impressions

Dental Molds & Digital Dental Impressions

Digital dental impressions used by 1 in 3 dentistsDigital dental impressions are now used by one in three dentists, this survey found.

Another 25% of dentists plan to incorporate intra-oral digital impressions in their practices.

However, 41% say they’re not interested in transitioning to digital impression technology, preferring to stick with traditional dental molds instead. For most of them (73%), it’s because of price, but others are concerned that the technology isn’t proven.

  • “I will stop practicing dentistry if Cadent/iTero goes out of business. I will NEVER use impression material for crown and dental bridge ever again!” (California dentist)
  • “We have already experienced less remakes and the accuracy is just unbelievable. Although there is a small learning curve, my dental assistants take the digitals as quickly as it would take to try-in trays, and take a traditional regular set polyvinyl.” (North Carolina dentist)
  • “For a pedodontist, there is no need.” (New Jersey pediatric dentist)
  • “I prefer the traditional method!!” (Alabama dentist)
  • “Crown seats are a breeze now. I use iTero because you can make anydental crown.” (Virginia dentist)
  • “Bring down the price, and I’m in.” (Indiana orthodontist)
  • “Why wouldn’t you go digital? We did it 5 years ago. It’s so much faster and simpler!!” (Minnesota dentist)
  • “I am a Cerec user and am constantly amazed at how well the restorations fit. But I hate having to powder. That is the hardest part of the learning curve.” (New York dentist)
  • “In addition to making my staff very happy, I think it might be a practice builder also.” (Oregon orthodontist also practicing sleep medicine)
