Technology and Innovation

For patients, visiting the dentist can feel like an exercise in frustration, with friction at every turn. ADMI and Aspen Dental offices are all about removing the friction to make healthcare easier and more accessible.

How do we do this? Paper forms are replaced with dynamic, digital assets; interactive displays drive engagement and education; state-of-the-art exam rooms take advantage of the digital workflow to put patients at ease; every patient receives a full digital scan so that whatever is happening inside the mouth is out in the open, making the conversation around diagnosis, treatment and acceptance a whole lot easier.

Aspen Dental and ADMI’s commitment to continuous innovation is demonstrated by its move to a digital platform and its recognition in the value of key partnerships and collaboration with other organizations that are passionate about leading the charge in the evolving healthcare landscape. Aspen Dental and ADMI have united with these companies to help provide patients with easier access to quality healthcare while continuing to hone and develop team member’s skillsets.

3D Printing

This is the future of dental labs. This process enables printing for nearly everything that would traditionally be fabricated. Hard occlusal guards, pilot and fully guided surgical guides, dentures, temporary crowns, and more can be fabricated with 3D printing technology.

Cone Beam Computed Tomography

Also referred to as C-arm CT, cone beam volume CT, or flat panel CT. A medical imaging technique consisting of X-ray computed tomography where the X-rays are divergent, forming a cone.

Dental Implants

Metal posts or frames that are surgically positioned into the jawbone beneath the gums. Once in place, replacement teeth are mounted onto the posts or frames, providing patients with stable support for artificial teeth. For some people, ordinary bridges and dentures are simply not comfortable or even possible, due to sore spots, poor ridges or gagging. Ordinary bridges must be attached to teeth on either side of the space left by the missing tooth. An advantage of implants is that no adjacent teeth need to be prepared or ground down to hold your new replacement tooth/teeth in place.

Impression Scanning

Dentists are able to take a scan and convert it to a 3D image. The lab can begin working on restorations as soon as they receive the file. This process allows for a much quicker turnaround, a lower cost, increase in accuracy and quality, and a lower remake percentage. We’re cutting remark percentages in half but converting to digital format.

Invisalign®

A custom-made aligner that is interchanged roughly every two weeks for a period of six to eighteen months, or longer depending on the severity of misalignment. Similar to a mouth or dental retainer (which is designed to keep teeth from shifting out of place), an Invisalign® aligner is used for orthodontic treatment as a technique to move and properly align teeth for a beautiful smile. This clear aligner is usually computer generated from a mold (or impression) of the patient’s teeth—taken by either a dentist or an orthodontist—and the fitting is unique to each patient only.

iTero Intraoral Scanners

Designed to deliver speed, reliability, intuitive operations, and outstanding visualization capabilities for general practitioners or orthodontists. The scanners are designed to give patients the best workflow with the Invisalign system and the exclusive Invisalign Outcome Simulator.

Model Scanning

An interoral scanner isn’t need for this process. This only requires plaster models and the lab will convert the model into a 3D format, allowing for the lab to fabricate the partial framework.
