Digital dentistry applications, which we call Cad Cam, means computer-aided design (Computer Aided Design) and computer-aided manufacturing (Computer Aided Manufacturing).
Thanks to an intraoral camera integrated into the computer, a 3D image is taken from the teeth. Very fine details that are very difficult to see in classical measurement methods can be recorded in a few minutes with this scanner. The image is transferred to the computer environment and the design phase begins. The form, size, relationship with the surrounding tissues, in short, all the features of the planned restoration are determined. After the final controls are made on the software, the computer-aided production stage is started. After colour and material selection, engraving is made from the appropriate block. The restoration produced by engraving on the same day is ready to be inserted into the patient’s mouth and the treatment is completed after the necessary controls are made in the mouth.
All kinds of restorative and prosthetic dental treatment can be performed with CAD/CAM systems. Porcelain laminates, zirconium coatings, full ceramic crowns, porcelain inlay-onlay fillings, endocrons, which are frequently applied in aesthetic dentistry, especially in cases where there is very little healthy tooth tissue, can be produced in the shortest time and with maximum precision thanks to cad cam.
The biggest advantage is that it offers a very precise working opportunity. It ensures that the detail of the image taken and the harmony of the restoration with the tooth is very high. It is the most up-to-date treatment method where the margin of error is minimised. The restorations prepared very quickly shorten the number and duration of sessions and provide great convenience to the patient and the physician. The person can get his/her tooth on the same day. Problems such as nausea reflex encountered in classical impression methods have been eliminated. patient comfort is at the forefront.
Numerous block options allow the selection of the most natural and most suitable material. Untouched data transfer to the laboratory provides a more hygienic working environment. Other advantages are that all records and design are carried out completely on a software, data can be stored in digital environment, and the possibility of error due to human factor is minimised.
