Intelligent Touch Dental Laboratory took the leap and went digital in the 2010 using Cerec inlab. We then switched to Nobel Procera, then Straumann, and now we have been using 3shape for the past 3 years. 3Shape has given our lab the opportunity to produce continuous quality designs and still help increase our productivity. Digital dentistry with 3Shape has given us the perfect base for the combining technology, artistry, efficiency, and communication. 3Shape gives our technicians the total freedom to design everything from a beautiful new smile, to complex custom abutments, and implant cases. We are currently have three 3shape scanners. We have a D900L & two E3 scanners in house to scan models & impressions.
After the restorations are designed, it gets milled in our Roland DWX-52DCi with a 6-slot automatic disc changer, thus meaning when the lab is closed the mill is still milling, keeping the work flow moving.
We also have the Form Labs Form 2 printer. With intraoral scanners getting better and better every year, more and more of our dentists are starting to send us digital impressions. The Form 2 delivers high-resolution detailed models with a stunning surface finish that our doctors love.
We are always looking for the next best digital solution to help our laboratory be more accommodating to our doctors and their offices. We have been looking to expand our digital and CAD/CAM solutions even further in the upcoming months! Stay tuned to see what’s next for Intelligent Touch Dental Laboratory.
