Application of CAD/CAM Technology in Dentistry

The latest innovations in technology made almost all things possible in this world. Technology has affected our society and everything that surrounds it in many ways. It helped develop a more advanced economy and has allowed progress in all aspects of modernization. Almost everybody appreciates all the improvements in technology. There a lot of difficulties that can easily be resolved by technology and nothing is too small for modern technology to influence.

At present, almost everything is possible with the latest innovations in dentistry. Huge advances have been made in the field of computer aided dental technology in Albuquerque area and many parts of the world. Presently, CAD/CAM technology is used by many dental specialists and dental lab technicians to help them fabricate precise shapes and sizes for dental restorations which includes inlays, onlays, crowns, and bridges. CAD/CAM stands for computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing. A computer aided design program in effect inputs pertinent information and instructions into a specialized machine which then produces an output according to those specifications.

The CAD/CAM technology technique has been used by the modern day dentistry to manufacture vast range of dental products. In general, the equipment relies strictly on a ceramic material that creates seamless and flawless products that perfectly fits a patient’s mouth.

The CAD/CAM technology in a dental clinic allows the dentist to take appropriate images and measurements and design the item to be manufactured in a short period of time.After that, the patient can immediately check if it perfectly fits her without being required to wear a temporary crown for several days while they wait for the new one to be manufactured.
