CAD/CAM Technology

CAD/CAM Technology

CAD/CAM refers to computerized production and is widely used in dentistry with the developing technology.

For many years, metal was covered with porcelain in dentistry. Recently, systems that receive commands from the computer and work with the milling technique are used. Here, it is possible to erode the zirconium block with the commands given by the computer. Then, bridges or individual coatings can be formed by covering it with porcelain.

CAD/CAM Technology Application Steps

·         Initially in powder form, zirconium is then compressed into blocks.

·         In order to shape the blocks, a design is made in the computer environment.

·         The milling machine gives the bridge the required shape.

·         Coloring is done.

The task of the dentist in the above-listed CAD / CAM technology application steps; It is to ensure that the teeth are prepared at correct angles and in ideal shapes. With the measurement taken on the ideally prepared tooth, the zirconium work required in the computer environment is shaped. The sculpted geometric volume is brought into reality on the milling machine.

Metals are made by casting, even the most precision casting has a 100-micron gap. In zirconium, the adaptation range is down to 10 microns. This ensures that the work done will last much longer. In summary, zirconium is used as the most advantageous material in crown and bridge works today.

Unfortunately, the dexterity of the dentist had a margin of error for every treatment method studied in conventional dentistry practices. With the CAD/CAM technology in the new generation dentistry, these margins of error have almost completely disappeared. All processes are completed digitally with CAD/CAM technology.
