The High Impacts of CEREC Technology
Compared to a decade before, there are many dental options to help you with any problem you might have. The dental technology that is currently being used has seen procedures become less painful and more accuracy in the diagnosis and testing. Ceramic reconstruction is one of the equipment that has revolutionized dental care making it possible to produce dental crowns ,onlays, veneers and inlays.
A ceramic restoration procedures happens at the treatment chair hence this means quick restoration, effectiveness and convenience at the same time. Having the procedure happen real time helps the patient and the dentist attend to any minor issues that may come up as a result of the procedure, this gives the patient a total solution. A lot of high tech procedures are involved when it comes to CEREC procedures, a combination of visible light scanning , digital radiographs, CT scans, 3d imaging , restoration manufacturing through CNC milling and finally 3D printing.
All these steps however are not possible without an intraoral camera which is an image acquisition , a designing software and finally a 3D printer to deliver a restoration. A dentist who does not have all the equipment at the office can acquire the 3D image, there after transmit the designs to a 3D printing lab from where the restorations are then submitted to the dentist for the procedure. Other materials used in restoration such as gold might require several appointments to the dentist and are a bit complex, with CEREC technology however you only require one appointment to the doctor. Ceramic compared to metals has a more biocompatible aspect and has tooth like aesthetic qualities.
Another advantage of the CEREC procedures is that one does not need a lot of follow ups meaning that their compatibility is really high. In lays manufactured and polished through the aid of a computer are more lasting compared to those made from gold, former have a lifespan of ten years. CEREC restorations have recorded a success rate ninety five percent for a period of nine years and this means earning the trust of patients who are seeking options for their dental problems.
To be honest not many appreciate frequenting the dentist , the trips cost money and booking the appointments too, same day crown restorations means one trip, hence spending less. Allergies make some people have some chills, metals make some certain people suffer allergies meaning that some people cannot have restorations from metals, CEREC restorations on the other hand are safe. With CEREC 3D image capture and 3D printing, there will be less cutting and drilling to have a fitting restoration.
