Benefits of Model-less Workflow

Benefits of model-less Workflow

The model-less workflow has revolutionized dental fabrication in a very short period of time, upending decades of traditional model-oriented design and manufacturing processes.

While the speed of the transformation has been astounding, the reasons behind this quick adoption rate are simple: a model-less workflow provides clear benefits in nearly every stage of the fabrication process. From taking digital impressions to the final fit, a model-less workflow is often faster, more accurate and requires less finicky adjustment to get the perfect result.

Here are the top 3 benefits of utilizing a model-less workflow:

Faster Processes with Model-Less Workflows

A model-less workflow driven by entirely digital dental scanners can significantly reduce the time it takes you for to complete a restorative treatment course for your patients.

Patients don’t need to spend time sitting in a chair waiting. This speed boost starts with the very first step, as you no longer need to worry about dealing with fickle impressions and molding materials. This means your patients don’t need to spend time sitting in a chair waiting for a mold to set, all while tasting the often unpleasant impressions material. Indeed, it usually takes most of a day or two before a technician is even able to begin reviewing your physical impressions, making for very inconvenient scheduling in the event that you need to call the patient back for another round of impressions.In contrast, a model-less process can easily yield a final product within 48 hours, and even within 24 hours, in the most time-sensitive cases.

Better Cost Efficiency

Transitioning into a model-less workflow means you can do away with all the supplies and equipment necessary to support a purely impressions-based fabrication process.

From resins and mixing equipment to impressions trays and more, entire store-room shelves can be cleared of supplies that are no longer necessary.

This means the initial investment in digital scanning equipment may quickly pay for itself, and you’ll also no longer need to worry about ordering and tracking as much inventory for your impressions-based procedures.

Better Production Quality

For many dental clinicians, the biggest benefit of model-less workflows is the increased accuracy that results from ditching physical molds. You’ll no longer worry about dealing with distortions and model inaccuracies, and any errors in the scan can be immediately identify and fixed just as quickly.  Many dentists say they’ve been able to cut seating times in half.

With fewer adjustments and higher accuracy out of the gate, your turnaround times can drop sharply, and many dentists and labs say they’ve been able to cut seating times in half.

Whether you’re looking to cut costs, speed workflows or boost accuracy, model-less fabrication processes provide significant benefits in every area.
