Hope this is allowed –> mods let me know if not. I’m a doctor and about to do some MaxFax work as a junior and am quite interested. Have been reading about prosthodontics and dentistry and have some (pretty random) questions to help me learn about the field and trends, and to satisfy my interest. Hoping you might be able to help:
For prosthetics, how fast is the transition to digital workflows? How often is the typical impression –> diagnostic model –> wax up –> analog manufacturing used?
If using an analog workflow, do people still do wax ups in practice? Is it mostly labs doing the wax ups?
Do you think that labs will still be relevant in the future? Couldn’t you just move to a digital workflow, outsource some design and then print/mill on site if you have the volume?
Thanks for any help
