The High Impacts of CEREC Technology
Currently there are many more solutions to dental problems than there was before. Pain is a thing of the past and dental examinations have become more accurate credits to the new technology used in dental care. CEREC (chairside Economical Restoration of Aesthetic Ceramics) technology has changed the course of the dentist industry, producing of dental crowns, veneers inlays and inlays is possible hence there are no close ended solutions to certain problems as it was there before.
Ceramic restoration happen at the treatment point when the patient is on the chair, this translates to quicker and convenient dental treatment. The procedure being done at the chair side has its advantages in that the dentist gets to attend to any issue that is a direct result of the main procedure. 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 other than ceramic might take longer to construct and implant but with CEREC technology one only needs a single appointment and it’s done. Ceramic compared to metals has a more biocompatible aspect and has tooth like aesthetic qualities.
CEREC procedures are so well constructed such that the amount of follow ups done and the occlusion adjustments are less. Studies have shown that the ten year life span of CEREC inlays polished and manufactured by a computer are long-lasting compared to that of gold inlays. With a success rate of 95 % according to clinical studies, CEREC restorations will certainly be preferred by patients who need restorations.
Cost effectiveness of same day crown or CEREC restorations is something to get you warmed up, although the same day crown costs the same as a traditional crown , the trips made to the dentist cost money and with CEREC restorations you make only one visit. Since some people have allergies that are stimulated by metals, it means they cannot have metal restorations hence making CEREC restorations a better option. CEREC technologies which use 3D imaging means they produce accurate restorations meaning less cutting and drilling away.
