Dentistry cad/cam technology
Digital dentistry ready-to-use digital equipment scans the patient’s oral cavity, obtains the surface information of soft and hard tissues such as teeth and gums, uploads the data to the computer center to build relevant 3D models, and analyzes and designs in accordance with the needs of patients, and uses 3D printing technology to quickly process Manufacture dental molds including orthodontic dental molds, implant guides, bracket positioning guides, etc., and the finished products can be directly delivered to the doctor for use.
Compared with the traditional oral treatment process, digital dentistry makes the links that originally required high-level dentists to operate carefully divided into standard professional equipment and 3D printers to complete the operations, which not only saves manpower and time costs, but also is more accurate. Now take dental implant surgery as an example to illustrate the advantages of digital dentistry. Traditional dental implants require at least three operations. In the first operation, the gums were cut to determine the location of the implant, and then the implant was drilled. After waiting for two to three months, a second operation is performed and the healing abutment is placed. After waiting for two to three weeks, perform the third operation, remove the healing abutment, put on the implant abutment and fix the crown. For digital dental implants, the patient’s oral information can be accurately obtained through CT scans before surgery, and the relevant software can be designed and analyzed to determine the implant plan, and finally the implant guides required for the surgery can be quickly printed with a 3D printer. During the operation, the doctor only needs to fix the guide plate on the remaining teeth of the patient, and then the teeth can be implanted according to the guide plate. It is worth mentioning that, due to the digital simulation technology of digital dental implant surgery, patients can know the surgical plan and the expected postoperative results before the operation. Compared with traditional implant surgery and digital dental implant surgery procedures, digital implant surgery is obviously better.
It is worth mentioning that due to the digital simulation technology of digital oral implant surgery, patients can know the effect of post-implantation repair before the operation, which will undoubtedly enhance the patient’s confidence in the operation. In order to better promote the development of the digital dentistry era, many domestic companies have conducted research and development on this. Taking Xunshi Technology as an example, the company built a digital dental one-stop service system based on the actual needs of dentists. The system combines cloud platform DashBoard 2.0, design platform Design Service, processing software RayWare, 3D printer SprintRay Pro, The post-processing equipment Pro Wash/Dry and Pro Cure are connected in series. In this system, the dentist only needs to be responsible for the operation of wearing the dental model, and the rest of the work can be handed over to the nurse to operate the professional equipment. It greatly improves the work efficiency of the dentist and reduces the technical risks and difficulties.
For now, digital dentistry is not widely used. However, with the continuous rapid development of 3D printing technology, I believe that in the near future, seeing teeth will be a breeze for everyone, but it does not stop there. I hope that 3D printing will bring us more surprises and creations.
