The Best Dental Lab for Digital Dentistry
Shaping the Digital Dentistry Industry
Digital Dentistry has been evolving and improving dental procedures and products greatly for over 20 years. However, now more than ever it’s becoming more widely utilized. As a result of digital in the manufacturing process, it’s easy to see the improvements in dental products and the better experience for the patient and for the dental professionals.
Digital Dentistry is any technology that incorporates computer-controlled components to aid in the manufacturing of dental products and treatment. Furthermore, this can range from CAD/CAM (computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing), to Digital radiography for intraoral and extraoral. For instance, the original reason for bringing computers into dentistry was for a clearer image in intraoral digital radiology. However, this technology has evolved to do many other tasks.For example, record keeping, 3D digital imaging of dental impressions, images, practice management systems, patient education, and more
Benefits of Dental CAD/CAM technology
- Highly predictable.
- Increases lab efficiency and productivity.
- Precisely configures prosthetics for ideal anatomic contour.
- Virtually designing the model on a screen allows techs to pay close attention to contacts, occlusions, and anatomy.
- High long-term clinical success rates for CAD/CAM restorations.
- Simplifies dental case management and communication between lab and dentist.
- CAM milling machines are extremely reliable for accurate manufacturing.
- Tech is able to define margins with a 360-degree enlarged view of the virtual model.
CAD / CAM in the Dental Industry
Firstly, CAD/CAM Digital Systems have increased the efficiency of production making it the ideal option for manufacturing prosthetics. Secondly, by designing and milling the dental prosthetic, we can consistently produce a better-looking and longer-lasting restoration. In addition to saving costs in labor and materials.
Thirdly, CAD/CAM technology and metal-free materials are being used to create highly esthetic, durable, and functional restorations. Furthermore, CAD/CAM is also used to fabricate custom abutments for dental implants. Which is very important for stabilizing and integrating the prosthetic within the jawbone for long-term biocompatibility. to sum up, Today’s CAD/CAM restorations are more resilient, natural-looking, and better fitting than previously machined restorations. We support all major CAD/CAM digital scanners including CEREC Connect, 3 SHAPE, iTERO, 3M ESPE, Carestream, and more.
More dentists than ever are switching to digital scanners to replace traditional impressions. Digital scanners provide better comfort for patients by eliminating awkward impression trays and unnecessary messes. With digital impressions, dentists can reduce “chair time” and cut material costs while allowing them to see more patients. Another benefit is being able to instantly email the digital impression directly to the laboratory. No more paying for shipping and waiting for the standard delivery time to start production. Also being able to visually explain your diagnosis and treatment plan in real-time to your patient improves the overall experience of the patient. Digital Dentistry in the USA is increasingly becoming the new standard for reliable, efficient dental production.
Are you not ready to give up conventional impressions, but curious to see what digital dentistry has to offer? Try our Model-Free Option! Our CAD/CAM department uses a special technique to scan your conventional impressions. After, they design the restoration virtually, then mill out a flawless prosthetic every time.
