Using the Sirona Omnicam camera for a dental digital scan is an excellent way to capture accurate clinical data that can now be exported as a STL (SW 4.5) file for model printing. At the Klim office, we have now gone totally

The inverted sintered cone diamond on the Meisinger JK03 Klim Institute Lab kit is the most versatile shaping diamond. It works well on posterior occlusal surface refinements and micro texturing anterior labial surfaces.
