The delivery of scientifically proven restorative dentistry and implant prosthodontics has been significantly advanced by the rapid introduction of innovative digital technologies into clinical practice. Intraoral scanning is one of these technologies that has significantly increased the exactness of measurement for the digital planning of cases and, therefore, has streamlined both the gathering of diagnostics and the predictability of results. This article will focus on the benefits of incorporating intraoral scanning in the treatment of complex full-arch restorations for both natural tooth and implant dentistry to increase efficiencies, reduce clinical appointments, and decrease treatment costs to enhance patient care.
