CAD CAM Technology
The CAD / CAM is a technological system that allows us the design and manufacture of dental prostheses by computer. With this digital technology, we can design and manufacture extraordinarily accurate and highest quality dental restorations.
Dental clinics use the CAD/CAM technology to produce restorations on implants, surgical guides, zircon crowns, implant abutments & we can restore from a tooth to a complete arch. Among the advantages that can be found with this system is the reduction in numbers surgical time, less inflammation, more accurate restorations, besides having the ability to have teeth implants made about future even before the intervention.
The CAD / CAM technology has three processes:
1. Scanning the tooth or dental implant in the model.
2. The computer design of the prosthesis by a three-dimensional software.
3. The robotic milling or parts manufacture.
Currently, the CAD / CAM technology represents state of the art in dentistry, and we have here available for you.
Radiovisiography (RVG) is the latest imaging technology in dentistry with minimal radiation. The RVG technique has many advantages over standard radiography. RVG technique saves the time spent on the diagnostic procedures as compared to traditional dental radiography. RVG also enables the process of archiving and following-up the presented case in the course of time.
Many times when the patient’s problem is very deep-rooted, there can be chances that the medical-dental professional may not be able to figure out the right reason for the pain. This occurs because there are very fine blood vessels inside the gums, and in the bone tissues that carry blood to the teeth and teeth bones. In such cases, RVG provides 3-D analysis of the patient’s condition which helps in avoiding periapical surgeries in many cases.
An OPG is a panoramic x-ray which displays all the teeth of the upper and lower jaw on a single film. The image demonstrates the position, number and the growth of all the teeth including those that have not yet erupted or grown to the surface. An OPG is also used to diagnose problems of the jawbone and the joint which connects the jawbone to the head. This joint is known as the temporomandibular joint. An OPG may be used for various orthodontic treatment diagnosis to assess the growth of wisdom teeth or to have an overview of the teeth and bones that support the teeth.
The Procedure: The method might need the patient to remove any jewellery, lenses or spectacles, and any metal objects worn on the body. These may obscure the images resulting in the images being blurry or shadowed. The patient is made to stand with the chin resting on a small shelf and gently bite on a sterile mouthpiece. This helps in keeping the head stable without shaking, which is essential while the x-ray is taken.
A Lateral Cephalogram is an imaging technique for the side view of the face, which shows the bones and facial profile on a single film. Lat Ceph x-rays are used in the diagnosis and treatment of orthodontic problems.
The Procedure: The patient will have to stand with the head against the machine so that it can be adjusted to their comfort. A pair of cone-shaped plastic supports is then gently placed in each ear like a pair of earphones. Both ears are aligned to ensure an exact side view of the face is obtained in the images.
Intra Oral Cameras
Intra Oral Cameras were introduced to the medical-dental system in 1989, and are being used widely in most dental clinics today. Dental professionals use intra oral cameras as an alternative to mirrors, to show their patients the inside of their mouths. IOCs allow the patients to see how the inside of their mouths look like, making it easy to explain their problem to the doctor exactly, aiding the dentists consulting with them regarding various treatment options. Intra Oral Cameras (IOCs) are cameras used by dentists to show patients how the interior of their mouth looks. This helps to aid the dentist in recommending various treatment options to treat the patients.
A centrifuge is designed to prepare autologous concentrated growth factor (CGF) with the use of the patient’s blood which is the ideal autologous source without the addition of exogenous substances. CGF represents a new generation of platelet that can hold inside a much-higher concentration of autologous.
L.P.G.F. – Liquid phase growth factors are proteins that regulate complex processes of wound healing and enhance the healing abilities of the body without any side-effects. The Profuge of various levels of concentrate along with active proteins in liquefied form creates membranes for tissue regeneration and bone augmentation within just 12 minutes.
- Rejection of possible cancer cells
- The human body does not reject
- No infections
- Low pH (no bacterium growth)
- Sterilized and No chemicals use
- Fast healing
- Painless healing
Dental instruments are classified into different categories depending on the risk of transmitting infection
Critical – Critical devices are those used to penetrate soft tissue or bone. These devices should be sterilised after each use for safety purposes as they have high risk of transmitting infections.
Semi Critical – Semi Critical devices do not penetrate soft tissues or bone but contact mucous membranes, such as mirrors, reusable impression trays, etc. These must be sterilised after every use.
Noncritical – Noncritical instruments come into contact only with intact skin such as external components of blood pressure cuffs and pulse oximeters. These devices have a relatively lower risk transmitting infections. Hence they are reprocessed between patients with a low-level disinfection/sterilisation process.
