What Is CAD CAM?

CAD CAM is a state-of-the-art example of computer-aided, people’s smile design. CAD CAM technology, which stands for ‘computer Aided Design – computer Aided Manufacturing’, has a structure that scans a three-dimensional image of the patient’s intra-mouth tissues and then allows them to apply on it.

This allows changes to the prosthesis that is specifically designed for the patient with the help of special scrapers in the computer environment. After completing this prototype preparation, a one-to-one prosthesis is prepared with the person’s oral structure, close to 100%.

Who Can Have CAD CAM Treatment?

The CAD GLASS technique used for prosthetic preparation is a technique that can be used when rehearsal is required for any operation. During the application, only one camera and a view of the person’s teeth are transferred to the computer environment. Therefore, this technique can be utilized in any situation required without individual distinction.

How To Make CAM CAD?

For the application, the patient’s intra-oral tissues must be ready for processing first. The patient’s inoral view is then stored in the device’s memory with an optical camera.

In a computer environment, the design phase of the prosthesis can be prepared digitally on the image recorded via a specially crafted software file. It is prepared in three dimensions, resulting in a very useful result.

After the result is prepared, the patient’s prosthetics are ready to be applied quickly without any problems.

Benefits of CAM CAD Technology

The benefits of CAM CAD technology;

  • Allows rapid preparation of prosthesis.
  • A perfect match is achieved between the patient and the prosthetic.
  • The prosthetic is prepared in an extremely esthetic way.
  • It is a highly reliable technique and the margin of error is extremely low.
  • Provides a delicate working environment that cannot be reached by human hands.
  • Problems such as patient irritating mold removal and mold discompliance and repreparation are eliminated, during which several days are passed.
  • Short-term processing in individuals with a sensitive gag reflex, limited mouth movement and difficulty in taking measurements.
  • Significantly increases the quality of the patient’s life and the success rate of the application.
