Researchers from the Bluestone Center for Clinical Research at the New York University (NYU) College of Dentistry are reporting positive results from their evaluation of the E4D Dentist system by D4D Technologies.
One aspect of the study was an observational, clinical evaluation of the initial quality of the restorations produced by the E4D Dentist system. According to a D4D press release, 100% of the IPS Empress restorations created chairside and seated by the participating NYU clinicians were found to be clinically acceptable by an independent examiner.
Additionally, two NYU clinicians ranked the E4D Dentist system comparable to the Cerec 3D system relative to overall merits, user friendliness, and operational effectiveness. One clinician was an experienced Cerec operator and the other had no CAD/CAM experience. Both clinicians found the E4D Dentist system easy to learn. Preparations were scanned and restorations designed, finished, and seated in an average of less than 45 minutes, according to D4D.
