CAD/CAM Dentistry

CAD/CAM stands for Computer Aided Design (CAD) and Computer Aided Milling (CAM). 3D images can be uploaded into special CAD software, allowing the dentist to evaluate the exact details of the appearance and function of the restoration. This software can also help the patient to visualize the end result of the proposed restoration.

Once the design is finalized, the files are sent to the CAM system for fabrication of the restoration to the exact specifications of the design. Use of CAD/CAM technology increases efficiency and accuracy, and can often reduce the overall number of patient visits needed.

Frequently Asked Questions About Digital Dentistry

What are the advantages of digital X-rays?
Digital X-rays use 80% less radiation than traditional X-rays. They need no development time, so they provide instant results. Their images are sharper and more detailed than film X-rays, which allows for faster, more preventative work. Nothing is missed and major treatments are avoided.
Why are digital X-rays needed?
Frequently, dentists cannot spot decay or other hidden issues with a visual examination. The dentist needs to know the current condition of your mouth, including within your gums and jawbone.
Why do dentists use digital intraoral cameras?
Digital intraoral cameras like the Itero scanner are handheld and highly maneuverable. They allow dentists to be able to show you, on a 3D screen, major problem areas such as cavities. This helps patients feel fully informed so that they are better able to understand their treatment plans.
