Computers and new technologies have become today an indispensable part of everyday life, and it was only a matter of time before such a reversal to happen in dentistry.
CAD-CAM is an acronym for English words computer-aided design / computer-aided manufacturing (Computer Aided Design / Computer Assisted izdrada). CAD-CAM technology has already been applied for decades in space technology, shipbuilding, and the automotive and aerospace industry. In the early 80s, CAD-CAM slowly introduced to dentistry to improve the accuracy and speed of making prosthetic restorations (crowns, bridges, INLA). In the beginning the production was very demanding and not so fast, but now with a 3D intraoral scanners ii compact dental Friday axis milling machine, the process is very reliable, fast and comfortable for the practitioner and the patient. CAD-CAM technologies are considered helping the dentist and technicians to produce the most accurate prosthetics (INLA, onlai, crowns, bridges) perfect anatomical shape, size and aesthetics. CAD-CAM technology is the most represented in prosthetics, but with time we notice the increasing use of CAD-CAM technology in other branches of dental medicine. The material used in the CAD-CAM technology metals, acrylic, titanium and zircon. Zirkon is new material on a sturdy, dimensionally stable and biocompatible material that is easily processed and gives a perfect aesthetics and function. Benefits of CAD / CAM technology: 1. No need to take the teeth imprint 2. There is no need for the creation of temporary teeth 3. It takes only one visit to the dentist Stages of creating perfect teeth After sanding and taxidermy by strictly defined rules (if the tooth is prepared for veneers, it is enough to remove a thin layer of the tooth of only 0.3 mm), scan the tooth special 3D camera connected to the computer. When shooting brushed teeth displayed on the screen under high magnification that provides insight into the least mistakes and their timely solving, which is greatly facilitated and accelerated the work of dentists. Processing and preparing the tooth for prosthetics must be extremely precise because otherwise CAD-CAM program does not allow for the transition to the next phase of the development. When taking intraoral scans are taken into account all the parameters - preparation for future veneers (veener) or flakes, and the opposite dental arch and bite. After recording, which takes only a few minutes, the computer simulates the bite and jaw movements to prosthetic replacements except satisfy aesthetic and functional interventions (snap, speech, chewing) for many years. In addition to obtaining the perfect aesthetics, CAD-CAM technology we were able to provide patients perfect functionality.
