The commitment to new technologies in medicine begins to be increasingly present in dental interventions carried out in specialized and qualified centers.
A Basque clinic has emerged as a pioneering center in this field with the development of a revolutionary technology that promises to improve the aesthetics and dental health of patients suffering from serious oral diseases.
The innovative system not only prevents discomfort in the mouth of patients but also eliminates possible errors in the design of dental prostheses, before they are placed in the patient’s mouth. It allows the manufacture of crowns and prostheses in the shortest time possible and with the latest generation materials.
In practice, the process takes place in three phases. Before beginning the application of CAD / CAM technology, the doctor uses a diagnostic system based on 3D radiology that allows the patient’s mouth to be visualized in three dimensions in order to identify any type of anomaly, from caries to more serious oral traumas. Unlike conventional panoramic radiography, which offers 2D images, this system gives us a more real and accurate view of the state of health of the patient’s mouth.
This precise diagnosis helps dental professionals to be able to plan their dental surgeries more accurately and quickly. It is a very significant advance that takes a step forward in favor of digital dentistry.
Once this diagnosis is made, the CAD / CAM technology applied by this pioneer clinic is executed in three phases. The first is done after the scan of the piece or the dental implant, and then, using 3D software, computer design the future dental prosthesis, calculating the exact axes of insertion of the piece in the mouth. The last step is carried out with the digital impression of the image that will be sent online to the laboratory in charge of manufacturing the prosthesis.
