With CAM and CAD, dentists could get top-quality bridges, onlays, inlays, crowns, cast partial dentures, and implant abutments among others. In addition, CAD/CAM could also be used in orthodontics. The use of CAD/CAM technology has further led to the enhancement of the prevailing therapeutic solutions and has paved the way for some novel solutions.
The essential application fields for both computer aided design and computer aided manufacturing range from prosthetics and restorative dentistry to implantology, orthodontics and oral surgery. This technique could further be used for numerous fixed prostheses, supra-implantary prostheses, dental veneers, inlay cores as well as temporary prostheses. It could also be used for removable prostheses on implants.
