GENÈVE, Suisse : Comme les autres professionnels de la santé bucco-dentaire, les dentistes font partie des catégories professionnelles les plus exposées à la Covid-19 qui fournissent un service de santé essentiel. En conséquence, de nombreux pays les ont inclus dans les groupes de vaccination prioritaires. Mais qu'en est-il de l'autorisation donnée aux dentistes d'administrer les vaccins contre le SARS-CoV-2 ? Une enquête récente menée par la Fédération dentaire internationale (FDI) a révélé que seul un tiers des pays ayant répondu autorisait les dentistes à procéder à la vaccination. À la lumière de ces résultats, la FDI a exhorté davantage de pays à permettre aux dentistes d'administrer les vaccins.

GENEVA, Switzerland: Like other oral health professionals, dentists are front-line workers who provide an essential healthcare service. Accordingly, many countries have included dentists in priority vaccination groups. But what about allowing dentists to administer SARS-CoV-2 vaccines? A recent survey conducted by FDI World Dental Federation revealed that only one-third of the responding countries permitted vaccine administration by dentists. In light of the results, FDI has urged more countries to enable dentists to administer the vaccines.
The traditional method of taking dental impressions is a delicate process, requiring a lot of skill. This makes it more likely that errors will occur. If detected, the patient will have to undergo the unpleasant procedure again. The digital method is fast and precise. When the scan is complete, and with the ability to magnify the image, it is much easier to spot errors.
This webinar will also show some hints, tips and tricks how to get around most of the limitations of the scanners, using additional materials, methods and digital equipment.
