Digital Dentistry

Workflow in digital dentistry consists of scanning, design and production stages. In this system, which aims to attach the prosthesis to the patient in a single session, the design of the prosthesis is made on the computer following the digital measurement process. Then, the designed prosthesis is produced by the CAD/CAM supported milling machine in the clinic.

Digital Measurement

Intraoral laser-assisted camera scans and records all the indentations and protrusions in 3D and transfers them to the computer environment. Patients with gag reflex can take a break whenever they want, as it can be interrupted and continued at any point while scanning the digital measurement. The image of the missing places can be rescanned. The size is checked by the specialist both during and after scanning. It is possible to enlarge the image transferred to the computer and to control it from every angle. In single or partial tooth deficiencies, only the relevant teeth or the teeth corresponding to the bite can be measured and worked on with the same sensitivity.

History and Purpose of the Digital System

In this system, which uses CAD/CAM (Computer Aided Design-Computer Aided Manufacturing) technologies, the design and production of the prosthesis is carried out with computer support. Via this system, which has been used for nearly 30 years, more than 250 studies have been carried out, more than 20 million restoration records have been reported worldwide, and the long-term success rate of digitally prepared all-ceramic restorations has been reported as 95%. As this system has been developed to enable prosthetic treatments to be performed in a single session, it is aimed to reduce the number of visits to the clinic and to save time. The prosthesis design also aims to present a personalized design by taking the relationship between existing teeth of the patients and the occlusion as a reference.

Restorations that can be made with the Digital System

Porcelain restoration types such as full ceramic crown and bridge, porcelain lamina, inlay, onlay, endocron can be completed in a single session with digital systems. In restorations, the design and production of which are completed via digital systems, arrangements such as the closing relations of the teeth and the contact points with the neighboring teeth are adjusted in the computer environment. Since the surface and pressure amounts in all contact areas can be adjusted in detail with the relevant design program, the proofing part is almost completely finished in the computer environment and the restorations are usually attached directly.
