Dental CAD/CAM systems are computer-aided current technologies enabling digital impressions taken straight from patients’ mouths, scannings and suitable restorations.
This system allows completing the upper restoration of the treated tooth in the very same session. The greatest advantage of the system for the patient and the dentist is that it is both aesthetic and allows completion of treatment in a very short period, i.e. a single session.
Another important advantage is that it eliminates the nausea reflex in the patient previously caused by other impressions taken from the mouth using impression materials.
1. Digital Scanning (Impression Taking)
When the patient arrives at the clinic, their teeth requiring treatment are scanned through 3D digital scanners. This transfers the 3D image of the teeth to the virtual environment.
2. Digital Design
Dental design is digitally carried out on the 3D scanned image virtually sent to the dental lab.
All procedures are run in a computer-aided environment, including determination of the shape and contours of the tooth and achieving an accurate fit for the gums.
3. Digital Dental Manufacturing
Digital design is followed by fabrication. Dental restorations are produced using 3D printers and scanners (CAD/CAM-enabled mills).
4. Porcelain Replacements
Manufactured porcelain replacements are finally tested in the mouth and applied.
Smile design with digital systems
Digital Scanning (Impression Taking)
An essential part of aesthetic dentistry, smile design has also become an easier and faster application thanks to modern digital dentistry practices.
That the patient is presented with a final look of themselves on an image during the planning session is highly beneficial to both the patient and the dentist.
While the 3D image provided to the patient is functional and helps achieve an aesthetic look, dentistry has taken on a new dimension with various computer-aided
programs enabling the dentist to understand all patient expectations.
What materials are used in digital dentistry?
Material to be used is selected by the dentist based on the part of the mouth and density of applied forces. In digital dentistry, ZIRCONIA EMPRESS COMPOSITE and COMPOSITE PORCELAIN are used.
What is Invisalign Treatment?
Invisalign treatment is a wireless orthodontic treatment method correcting visual deformities of teeth by using digitally-manufactured transparent aligners. The most significant difference of Invisalign aligners from other orthodontic treatments is that they are removable as well as undetectable.
Invisalign transparent treatment involves the use of wireless aligners produced with cutting-edge technology. With this high-end technology used to treat crooked and uneven teeth, transparent aligners are custom manufactured by 3D printers. It is the perfect choice of treatment for orthodontic problems of patients with aesthetic concerns. You can readily have the looks you wish with aligners applied to the upper and lower jaws.
What are the Advantages of Invisalign Treatment?
- At the onset of treatment, you can digitally see the result of your treatment.
- Unlike dental braces, transparent aligners do not pose any difficulties in brushing your teeth. Aligners can be easily removed from the mouth whenever wanted.
- They are not visible to others.
- When compared to treatment with dental braces, Invisalign treatment requires less maintenance. New aligners are manufactured with mouth and tooth scanning method.
Duration of Invisalign Treatment
Similar to dental braces, Invisalign transparent aligner treatment may last 15 to 30 months depending on the condition of the patient. Regular checks are scheduled every 6-8 weeks to replace aligners based on the progress achieved.
