Digital technology, including CAD/CAM design software and the use of intraoral scanning, is becoming ubiquitous within the dental industry. Many clinicians, currently in the process of adopting and integrating these new tools into their practices, seek information about the overall accuracy and success rate of the outcomes that digital methods produce, particularly in comparison with traditional analog approaches. Multiple clinical studies provide the data these clinicians are seeking; reported results from various sources demonstrate that the results gleaned from digital dentistry can meet or exceed those achieved through traditional methods in accuracy, time and money saved, and patient comfort.
