The CAD-CAM allows the design and manufacture of dental prostheses Computer. This technology greatly reduces human error to achieve high success rates.
The CAD (Computer Aided Design)-CAM (Computer Aided Manufacturing) enables design and manufacture extremely accurate and high quality dental restorations. Dentistry is constantly evolving and this technological system means great progress in the field of dental prosthesis. With this digital technology porcelain veneers, dentures, implant prosthetics are manufactured, among other restorative treatments.
This aided manufacturing with a digital three-dimensional reproduction of mouth basis, allows greater precision in treatment, shorten a very low error margin and high success rates. With this technique a better fit of the prosthetic restorations is achieved.
Dental Cad Cam, the procedure
The CAD-CAM technology consists of 3 processes.
1- scanning the tooth or dental implant in the model.
2- computer design of the prosthesis using a 3D software.
3- robotic milling or manufacturing parts from the design information. Process that takes place in just a few minutes.
The advantages of this technique are mainly:
- High dental aesthetics
- Accuracy in adapting prostheses, with an exact marginal seal.
- Fast manufacturing, which simplifies the steps laboratory.
- Reduction in number of visits.
- Best case planning
It is a technique that facilitates and streamlines the process of making prostheses and rehabilitation treatment of the patient.
