Dr. Strickland uses a special computer program that allows him to design and create dental restorations that feel great and look natural. This program is called CAD (computer-aided design) or CAM (computer-aiding manufacturing).
The goal of CAD/CAM dentistry is to reduce the amount of time spent between designing your dental restoration and being able to start treatment. For example, Dr. Strickland is able to use CAD/CAM dentistry to create dental crowns more efficiently than ever before. This means you are able to put your dental visit behind you sooner than you thought.
CAD/CAM dentistry can be used to create the following dental prostheses:
- Fixed bridges
- Dental implants
We are a family dental practice that prides itself on offering the best dental lab technology to its patients. Another benefit of CAD/CAM dentistry is that certain dental restorations or appliances are made more affordable. To our patients on a budget or with insufficient dental insurance, this can be a lifesaver.
