Achieving minimally invasive and aesthetictreatmentswiththe use of a CAD/CAM system in daily practice
Time: 15:00 - 16:00
Room: MIRO (PV7)
Chair(s): Jaime Sanchez-Calderon (Spain)
Learning ObjectivesWith this lecture, I would like to share my experience of adapting the daily use of a chairside CAD/CAM system to the therapeutic gradient expectations in a common practice.
With a CAD/CAM system, using an optical impression, we can create restorations like inlays, onlays, veneers, bridges and more. This digital tool has a lot of advantages compared to conventional techniques:
- > The optical impression allows us to avoid the use of impression pastes.
- > The size of this virtual model is about 20 times bigger than in reality. This means that the smallest error on the preparation or on the impression can be detected.
- > The many kinds of CAD/CAM machinable biomaterials allow us to achieve minimally invasive treatments most of the time in one single session.
