Remember the scenes from the Terminator movies where the Arnold Android looks at something and the movie shows what is happening in Arnold’s android mind. There is some clicking and other android-robot-computer sound effects and then an image appears that analyses whatever the Terminator android was looking at. Pretty cool.
We can now do the same thing with digital impressions like iTero. Once you have scanned the prep and the opposing the software does a virtual bite and will show you exactly how much occlusal clearance you have. Click, whirrr, plop plop and you have an exact measurement. No guessing with wax or a piece or rubber.
