CAD/CAM technology is used in Periodontics in several aspects of treatment for our patients. It provides an added dimension for accurate diagnosis of existing conditions. It also provides a medium for the periodontist and restorative dentist to plan and execute more precise placement of dental implants to support tooth replacements.
Many times, surgery can be done on a computer before entering a patient’s mouth. Surgical guides can be fabricated from computerized images to guide implant placement. This leads to a more accurate positioning of the implant(s) in the jaw, diminished time and trauma in surgery and gains a more esthetic and functional result in treatment.
