It all starts with a good Impression

Faster. Easier. Better.

Dentistry is truly a great profession for those of us who love gadgets, technological advances and dreaming of the possibilities of future developments. Intraoral digital impression systems are coming to the forefront of dentistry and Digital impressions are going to be the way of the future. Kastle Mills is the leading provider for cutting edge technology; we take your treatment style and the way you work and match it to a piece of digital technology allowing for flawless integration and easy of use.

Learning Curve… barely: If you’ve used an intraoral camera, the learning curve for using an intra oral scanner is practically non-existent.  After one or two patients, you’ve got it.  Otherwise by the end of the second day of training by a Kastle Mills digital workflow specialist, you are ready to fly solo.  The only change thereafter is your speed.

Time/Productivity: With digital impressions, room turnover is much quicker and team members do not have to clean up impression guns, the mess, or do the lab work required with conventional impressions (such as lab slips, opposing models, bite registrations, and packaging for delivery to the lab).  Step up and take down are streamlined for Faster. Easier. Better. Results.

Accuracy means a better fit: When conventional impressions are taken and models are poured, there is expansion and contraction of the materials.  At Kastle Mills we have the ability to mill or print models from a block of polyurethane, these distortions (discrepancies) are eliminated.  The dies are milled to fit into a solid model, giving a more accurate representation of our patient and eliminating sectioned and pinned models used with stone. You will also noticed greater marginal integrity — the die margins remain intact during the waxing process because the urethane is much harder than the stone and does not scrape away.  This also eliminates breakage from accidental dropping of models as well as voids from moisture and bubbles. By taking impressions digitally with an intraoral scanner remakes are a thing of the past; think of yourself the dentist ‘milling the tooth’ as you prepare it, digital technology allows us to replicate that exact process over and over and over again without any voids or discrepancies.

Efficiency: Toss the goop…  Have Dentists with Digital Technology eliminated impression material for standard indirect restorative cases?  Yes. Today dentists with intraoral scanners utilize them for everything; even for a crown on a third molar. The choice is yours but  do remember if you can scan it clearly and see the margin Kastle Mills can fabricate it!

Digital Benefits: Mass customization 3D scanning and CAD/CAM technologies for digital dentistry are revolutionizing the industry by enabling the merging of mass production and individual customization into fast, cost-efficient workflows. Adaptation of digital methods are increasingly defining and driving the success of dental businesses, and the companies that move to meet this challenge will be the companies that grow. Accuracy and customer satisfaction is what you can expect with digital impression scanners. The design and milling results achieved through digital data are extremely accurate and reliable resulting in amazingly accurate fits and aesthetic results. User-friendly and intuitive digital solutions allow for significantly reduced production times compared to traditional manual methods. Digital flexibility to maintain a competitive edge in the industry as digital technologies enhance the quality and reliability by exacting “personalized” information required for customized dental production and the speed upon with which it is relayed and entered into the manufacturing workflow. Mass customization manufacturing with digital technology the manufacturing data is stored together with each customer’s case. This enables a high degree of manufacturing automation and makes efficient, low-cost production possible. Automated Quality Control can then utilize the same data and equipment to verify the perfection of the end product.
