Chairside CAD/CAM Dentistry
Preparation and Cementation Procedures
Sameer Puri, DDS
Although direct composite resin procedures yield acceptable results when used correctly, if a large quantity of resin is required, complications may arise. In such cases, an indirect protocol must be followed. Numerous CAD/CAM systems, both laboratory and chairside, are available for practitioner use. In a laboratory system, a traditional impression is made and sent to a dental laboratory, where the restoration is fabricated. A chairside system, however, utilizes a digital impression system, and the restoration can then be milled and cemented in a single visit.
