In order to provide you with the best dental care, we offer CAD and CAM. CAD and CAM stand for Computer-Aided Design and Computer-Aided Manufacturing, respectively. We are able to provide our patients with the care they deserve by using the most advanced dental technology available.The latest technology makes it possible to create dental crowns in a matter of minutes instead of days or even weeks with CAD and CAM. Our dentists take a 3-D image of the patient's teeth and gums, which helps us create the perfect crown to fit exactly where the tooth is missing. Then, in our office, the crown is created and restored.
In this way, we are able to save our patients valuable time by utilizing CAD and CAM. We don't require our patients to make several trips to our office to receive the smile they deserve. Our dental restorations fit better, giving them a more comfortable smile. By doing so, it won't take as long to adjust to the new crown. The use of CAD and CAM allows our dentists to help their patients from start to finish. They will not rely on a laboratory that has never even seen the patient. Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) Imaging provides volumetric and three-dimensional views of critical anatomy for a more thorough evaluation of bone structure and tooth orientation.
Single-Visit Treatments Dental or prosthodontists would prepare your teeth, take an impression, and send the impression to a lab for final restoration using traditional laboratory methods. In some cases, the dental professional can do all of these steps in a single visit using CAD/CAM technology, thereby reducing your schedule disruption.
Digital Impressions : Digital impressions have immediate benefits if you've ever had a conventional impression. In the traditional method, patients hold a tray of dense, gooey material — called alginate — in their mouth for two to five minutes until it sets. Digital impressions are taken with a scanner, which is then moved around the affected area like a magic wand in the patient's mouth.
Cost-effectiveness : By reducing outsourcing costs, CAD/CAM technology enables your dentist to pass these savings along to patients. Make sure to ask about your options and costs before proceeding.
The CAD/CAM method isn't suitable for every tooth, so talk to your dentist about your best options before proceeding.
For complex fabrications, a practitioner may prefer the conventional laboratory method since precision and fit are important. To understand how CAD/CAM technology may impact your restoration appointment, talk to your dentist.
