Computer-aided design (CAD) and Computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) is used since long to manufacture precision tools and parts. The dental profession has adopted this technology torevolutionize the construction of dental restorations and prostheses.
CAD/CAM dentistry provides benefits to both professionals and patients.
We, at DetnaSculpt Dental Clinic, use CAD/CAM technology to construct restorations like crowns & bridges, onlays, veneers, inlays, dentures, and implant-supported prosthesis from different dental materials.
BENEFITS OF CAD/CAM in Dentistry
1. LIMITED VISITS :
Precision of CAD CAM RESTORATIONS makes it possible for us to reduce treatment time and total number of appointments. It saves time of patient and doctors.
2. Digital Impressions :
We take impression of prepared teeth with precison rubber-based material which are scanned digitally to make virtual models and crowns & bridges are made using CAD CAM. Frequently, we use digital scanner which gives us accurate digital scan of preparation for fabricating prostheses.
3. Cost :
Cost of fabrication of crown & bridges with Digital CAD/CAM technology does not add additional burden of cost on patient, rather it reduces flaws of manual fabrications, saving time and money.
