CAD/CAM CHAIR SIDE RESTORATION SYSTEM
Our office utilizes CAD/CAM technology. CAD/CAM stands for “computer-aided design” and “computer-aided manufacturing”. This technology allows the dentist to use an intra-oral scanner inside your mouth to take a digital scan of a tooth that has been prepared to receive a crown. Using special software, the data from the scan is used to generate a design (CAD) for a custom crown. This program will also generate a custom blue print and guide lines to manufacture the new crown (CAM). This software, paired with a state-of-the-art milling machine, enables our office to create precise and custom crowns, inlays and onlays in one single dental visit.
What is Cad Cam Technology?
CAD/CAM stands for “computer-aided design” and “computer-aided manufacturing”. This technology allows your dentist to use an intra-oral scanner inside your mouth and take a digital scan of a tooth that has been prepared to receive a crown. CAD/CAM technology allows your dentist to place a crown, bridge or implant more accurately and comfortably for you and your needs.
Why Should My Dentist Use CAD/CAM Technology?
In the past, your dentist may have had you bite down on a tray of pink impression putty. This often triggers a gag reflex in patients and can be physically uncomfortable for them. That’s why Gulf Coast Dental uses CAD/CAM technology instead — to ensure the comfort and precision needed to give our patients the best experience possible in our clinic.
The Gulf Coast Dental Difference
Gulf Coast Dental uses CAD/CAM technology for things such as crown placement and restoration, bridge installation and even implants for your teeth.
