CAD/CAM is the most common way of manufacturing dental restorations. CAD/CAM stands for Computer-Aided Design (CAD) and Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAM). These techniques allow dental laboratories to create crowns, bridges, inlays, and Onlays from digital data. This data can be produced from a number of sources including wax-ups or impressions taken by hand or using a scanner.
The development of computer-aided design systems has been an important milestone in dentistry since it enables dental laboratories to produce dental restoration without having to rely on traditional methods such as hand-carving or molding. However, there are still some limitations with this technology such as long processing times when compared with conventional methods such as casting which may take up to 12 weeks before delivery whereas 3D printing can take up to one week depending on the complexity of project being undertaken.
Dentists and dental technicians have recently seen a rise in the use of computerized dentistry. The benefits of using advanced digital technology are numerous and they are becoming more widely available as time goes on.
The dental lab industry has undergone a significant transformation over the past decade. Computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) technologies have changed the way dentists create restorations and other dental products, increasing quality and decreasing costs.
The increased use of CAD/CAM in dental labs has led to a need for more education about these technologies. In response to this demand, Denttree Dental Lab Training has developed a comprehensive program aimed at educating dentists about CAD/CAM technology as it applies to their practice.
DentTree is a CAD/CAM for dental restorations that enables dentists to become their own dental lab. Dentists can make all of their own crowns, bridges and other dental restorations by using our software to design the restoration and then send it to us to make it using our 3D printers.
Our software is easy-to-use and has been designed specifically for dentists with no previous CAD/CAM experience required. It incorporates best practices from many different industries including architecture, engineering and manufacturing into one single application so that any dentist can use it effectively regardless of their background or expertise level.
