Title:  The Impact of Accuracy and Precision in the Digital World of Prosthodontics


Synopsis:  The introduction of digital manufacturing systems has sometimes led to the assumption that precision and accuracy is not an issue anymore. The digital system takes all responsibility and we do not have to bother at all. The presentation will deal with the limitation and possibilities with existing and coming systems for digital oral rehabilitation.


Course Objectives:

·         How accurate is our digital system today?

·         Is precision more important than accuracy?

·         Can we accept less accuracy and thereby save cost?
