CAD/CAM Technology in Dental Implant Treatments

CAD/CAM is a technology utilized in many aspects of dentistry. In dental implant treatment for patients who have lost all teeth, we can take advantage of this powerful tool to survey our patient’s dentition, review existing position of implants, and design the final prosthesis.

Today’s sophisticated computer softwares allow the dentist and lab team to review restorative cases in multiple dimensions before fabricating the prosthesis.

In the example below we were able to identify a positioning problem with one of the implants.  Rather than producing a compromised restoration, we were able to resolve the issues before proceeding.

This is one of the many ways we deliver quality practice to our patients everyday.
