DIGITAL DENTAL RESTORATION: The CAD/CAM Workflow

Digital dental impressions are fast becoming the norm as an increasing number of clinicians and laboratories embrace this newer technology. Some of the benefits of intraoral scanning are obvious, such as speed and accuracy, but there are additional advantages you might not have considered. In this article, we look at digital dental restorations and the digital workflow. Not convinced digital impressions are worth considering?

SCREW-RETAINED VERSUS CEMENT-RETAINED RESTORATIONS

Screw-retained and cement-retained restorations each have specific qualities. Your choice of which restoration will best suit the patient depends on several factors.

TEMPORIZATION METHODS

Temporization is a standard procedure used to create provisional restorations that are required in the short or medium-term. Provisional restorations are frequently needed in preparation for more permanent restorations like dental implants, crowns, and bridges.

THE FUNCTION OF BRUXISM APPLIANCES

Bruxism is not a new condition. Literary references date back centuries. Early treatment focused on the mechanism of bruxism but later treatment centered more on psychological issues like anxiety and stress. Today, these two opinions are largely combined.

BUR SIZES AND SELECTION FOR OPTIMUM PREPARATIONS

Burs are one of the most frequently used mechanical devices in any dental office. Selecting the correct size and type of bur is essential for clinical success.

3-D CONE BEAM SCANNING TECHNIQUES

Cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) scanners are increasingly utilized in dental imaging. Potential uses include planning dental implant treatment, endodontics, orthodontics, and maxillofacial surgery. The scanner allows the clinician to visualize abnormal teeth and to evaluate the jaws and facial structure.

HOW TO ACHIEVE BEST RESULTS WITH A DENTAL IMPLANT IMPRESSION

Dental implants retain fixed and removable restorations, including single crowns, fixed bridgework, and implant-supported dentures. The technology for dental implants is well-established, and success rates are extremely high. Many dental practices have already embraced implant dentistry, and it is a significant source of revenue. As patient awareness increases, demand for the treatment will only increase.

THE ADVANTAGES OF LASER SOFT TISSUE TREATMENT IN DENTISTRY

Lasers have been used in dentistry for approximately two decades and are suitable for multiple procedures, including soft tissue treatment. Lasers for soft tissue treatments are available at varying powers and wavelengths and can be used for procedures that would otherwise be performed using electrosurgery or a scalpel.

HIGH TRANSLUCENT ZIRCONIA - The Most Superior Zirconia Product

Patient demand for dental restorations with a natural esthetic has increased considerably over the past few decades. This is partially due to greater interest in and awareness of cosmetic dentistry. For many years, clinicians used PFM crowns and bridges to provide patients with durable, long-lasting restorations that offered reasonable esthetics. However, although still a popular option, the opacity of the PFM materials cannot always satisfy esthetic demands.
