Hey everyone. So the reason my blog post was delayed was because yesterday we got to test out the coolest piece of equipment. The Omnicam is a camera that takes pictures of the teeth and makes a 3D model so we no longer have to do those yucky impressions. Once the Omnicam makes the model, it designs the crown or filling that is needed and sends it to a machine that makes it on the spot in 6 minutes – no more second appointment!
Everyone was involved, Mike was our patient while Kathleen, Tanya, and I helped take pictures of the teeth. Doc used the software to shape the new filling to her liking then simply pressed a button and the machine starting cutting out the design from a block of material. After 6 minutes it was done and ready to be cemented!
I can’t wait til we get one of these in office!
