4 Ways Digital Dentistry Will Streamline Your Orthodontic Workflow

As an orthodontist, keeping your patients happy is only second to keeping them safe. But if you’re still relying on traditional methods of dentistry for creating impressions, you’re not creating the best experience possible for your patients. Not only are traditional methods uncomfortable for your patients, but they could be costing you time and money. When you make the switch to digital dentistry with the SunDigital Orthodontic Solutions, you’ll be able to streamline your workflow in four simple ways.

1. Intraoral Scanning

The first part of our SunDigital Dentistry Solution is the CS 3500 Intraoral Scanner, which makes it easy to take high quality impressions. The innovative light­ guidance system leads you through the image acquisition process with virtually automatic bite registration. A trolley-­free and power-free system, the CS 3500 provides you with exceptional detail precision, as well as 2D and 3D colored images.

2. Digital Communication

Once your scan is complete, simply plug the scanner into your SunDigital laptop and upload the scan through our user­-friendly SunCloud app. SunCloud sends your scan directly to the lab for manufacturing. After your scan is uploaded, you can view your case and communicate with us directly through the app on either your laptop or through your mobile phone.

3. Digital Manufacturing

Going digital doesn’t stop with the scanner or the SunCloud app. Our labs use advanced digital manufacturing techniques including CAD (computer­-aided design), CAM (computer­-aided manufacturing), and 3D printing to create high quality restorations designed to improve your patients’ treatment outcomes.

4. Speedy Delivery

One of the greatest benefits of the SunDigital Orthodontics Solution is fast turnaround time. Traditional turnaround time can take up to three weeks, but the digital workflow means your patients will receive their restorations within five business days after submission. Sun Dental even offers free shipping to digital orthodontists, which will help you increase your profit margins on restorations.
