4 Ways Digital Dentistry Will Streamline Your Orthodontic Workflow

Nov 11, 2015

As an orthodontist, keeping your patients happy is only second to keeping them safe. But if you’re still relying on traditional methods of dentistry for creating impressions, you’re not creating the best experience possible for your patients. Not only are traditional methods uncomfortable for your patients, but they could be costing you time and money. When you make the switch to digital dentistry with the SunDigital Orthodontic Solutions, you’ll be able to streamline your workflow in four simple ways.

1. Intraoral Scanning

The first part of our SunDigital Dentistry Solution is the CS 3500 Intraoral Scanner, which makes it easy to take high quality impressions. The innovative light­ guidance system leads you through the image acquisition process with virtually automatic bite registration. A trolley-­free and power-free system, the CS 3500 provides you with exceptional detail precision, as well as 2D and 3D colored images.

2. Digital Communication

Once your scan is complete, simply plug the scanner into your SunDigital laptop and upload the scan through our user­-friendly SunCloud app. SunCloud sends your scan directly to the lab for manufacturing. After your scan is uploaded, you can view your case and communicate with us directly through the app on either your laptop or through your mobile phone.

3. Digital Manufacturing

Going digital doesn’t stop with the scanner or the SunCloud app. Our labs use advanced digital manufacturing techniques including CAD (computer­-aided design), CAM (computer­-aided manufacturing), and 3D printing to create high quality restorations designed to improve your patients’ treatment outcomes.

4. Speedy Delivery

One of the greatest benefits of the SunDigital Orthodontics Solution is fast turnaround time. Traditional turnaround time can take up to three weeks, but the digital workflow means your patients will receive their restorations within five business days after submission. Sun Dental even offers free shipping to digital orthodontists, which will help you increase your profit margins on restorations.

"Sun Dental Labs has been producing SunCeram® zirconia crowns and bridges for my patients for some time which are more esthetic looking than the traditional zirconia crowns that appear chalky and unnatural. They are strong enough that they can be used not just in the anterior but the posterior area as well. Sun Ceram zirconia crowns are quality restorations at a competitive price."

– Joseph R. Craig, DDS

"Sun Dental Labs has provided us with CAD/CAM restorations as well as removable prosthesis. Their team offers the latest in technology and a great line of the products. Beyond the quality of their work Sun Dental Labs provides great customer service and clear communication to meet delivery dates and our expectations. It has been a real pleasure working with such a upper level lab."

"I have been very pleased with the communication and support I get from the Sun team regarding SunClear® Aligners. I have had great success with patients getting the results they wanted to straighten their teeth. The lab fees are very reasonable allowing a great product to be delivered to my patients at a lower price. I always enjoy being able to meet my mission of quality dentistry at affordable prices for everyone. "

"I am starting to work in a new dental office with cases of SunClear® aligners and want to thank Dr. Torres because he has been very helpful to me. I always write him about any doubts, and he responds almost immediately and clarifies them. He helps me with case planning, gives suggestions and always considers my interests a priority in order to achieve the goal I want for each patient. Thanks to the help and excellent disposition of Dr. Torres and Sun Dental Labs I have been able to carry out my first cases successfully. "

– Nadyan M Vargas Barreto DDS

"I have been using SunClear® aligners for about 6 months now and am so impressed with the quality of the product and the readily available staff to answer any of my needs. The best part is their online portal that makes it so easy to treatment plan your cases for review and approve. As a provider of other competing clear aligner products for many years the prices have become a large problem and with the low price offered by SunClear®, we were able to lower our Ortho fees to accommodate so many more patients and change their smiles with the same ease and quality as the more expensive companies.
