Dental Prosthesis Design/Manufacturing Systems, Computer-Aided

Definition : Systems designed for manufacturing and/or repair of dental prostheses using computer-assisted design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM) techniques. These systems typically consist of a scanning unit that combines light sources and a video camera that may be mounted on a wand for in-vivo scanning of teeth, a central computer with appropriate software to process the data from the digital topographical image taken by the scanner and provide output for a computerized milling unit, and an automated computer milling/drilling machine that manufacture the prosthesis. Some systems may also take images from dental impressions or stone models. CAD/CAM dental prosthesis systems are intended for automated manufacturing of prostheses and restorations from ceramic, composite plastics, and/or metal blocks. All units of the systems may be located in dentists' offices or the manufacturing unit may be located in a separate dental laboratory.
