In the past, the process of getting dentures required about five different visits to the dentist’s office and about thirty days to receive the final product. Advances in technology and dentistry now make it possible for patients to get their dentures in about ten days with significantly less chair time. This new way of manufacturing dentures is called the Dentca CAM (computer aided manufacturing)/CAD (computer aided design) system. This faster and more cost effective method of producing dentures is currently being offered in dental offices throughout the United States.
The Dentca CAM/CAD denture system takes the margin of human error out of the process and allows for a faster, more cost effective method of manufacturing dentures. This results in less lab manufacturing time and fewer visits to the dental office for the patient. The Dentca CAM/CAD denture system requires just one visit prior to final delivery. During this visit, the dentist takes an initial impression of the patient’s gum. While the CAD system manipulates the impression to create accurate three dimensional photo simulations of how the denture is going to look, the CAM system controls mechanical tools and related machinery in the manufacturing of the dentures. By taking away the human labor, these dentures are created in a dramatically shorter period of time with no margin for error. The result is faster, more efficient and better fitting dentures.
If you would like more information about the Dentca CAM/CAD denture system, talk to a qualified dentist in your local area. If your dentist does not offer the Dentca CAM/CAD denture system, find one who does!
