How much time does it take for me as a dentist to use CEREC on a patient?
Of course, this depends on each user and his or her individual routine and internal workflows. One to two hours is usually required to plan, produce, and place a CEREC restoration, depending on the extent of the restoration. Pure “doctor time” only makes up only a small part of the overall process.
- The CEREC system is so intuitive that it ensures a quick learning curve and therefore less doctor time and the whole process is shorter.
- Tasks can also be delegated to the practice team which also allows for less doctor time. For examples, tasks such as creating a patient case in the software, intraoral scanning, and preparing the milling machine can be delegated to your team.
During the milling process you can treat another patient or carry out another task.
