What is CAD-CAM in Dentistry

CAD/CAM stands for Computer-Aided Design and Computer-Aided Manufacturing. It is a technology that is used in dentistry to design and create dental restorations such as crowns, bridges, and inlays/Onlays. This technology uses digital images of the patient’s teeth or the patient’s dental impression and computer software to design and create the restoration, which is then milled in a milling machine or 3D printed.

Types of CAD/CAM in Dentistry

There are two main types of CAD-CAM in dentistry: CHAIRSIDE and LABORATORY SYSTEMS.
