Technology CEREC

What are All on 4 dental implants Tijuana?

All on 4 dental implants Tijuana are a permanent set of fabricated teeth set on dental implants surgically placed into your jaw. They look, feel, and function like natural teeth.

As time goes by, technology has managed to reach almost all sectors and in this way it has managed to help facilitate and improve both internal and external processes of businesses and companies. One of the sectors that has been widely benefited is the dental sector where technology has made procedures more efficient and faster, making maintaining dental health for patients a simpler task both for them and for dentists. . 

At Dental Easy Care we care about each and every one of our patients and that is why we are always looking for the best ways and means to offer them the best service and thus be able to ensure that we do everything possible so that their dental health is in the best conditions. This has led us to have in our dental clinic one of the best technologies that currently exist in the dental field: the CEREC system. 

What Is The CEREC System?

The CEREC system belongs to a technology known as CAD-CAM, this technology consists of design and computer-aided manufacturing. So as we can see, the CEREC system helps with the design and manufacture of different dental pieces, necessary for a good dental treatment. The CEREC name comes from Ceramic Reconstruction and this system allows the realization of covers, crowns, veneers, inlays, prostheses and more. 

How Is The CEREC System Used?

One of the main differences between this system and the one known to date is that with CEREC it is not necessary to take impressions using pastes and neither is it necessary to manufacture them on plaster models, rather a scan of the patient’s mouth is performed. 

Step 1: Scanning of the mouth 

One of the main differences between this system and the traditional one is that with CEREC it is not necessary to take impressions using pastes and neither is it necessary to manufacture on plaster models, but rather a scanning of the patient’s mouth by the Omnicam, a small powder-free color camera, from which accurate 3D images in natural color are obtained. 

Step 2: Design of parts

Once the scan has been carried out, the CEREC system is in charge of generating a restoration proposal, which allows the production process to be reached faster, all in the same clinic. 

Step 3: Production of parts

The CEREC system has a milling and carving system. The milling and grinding of the restoration design is really precise, allowing smooth surfaces and edges to be obtained, as well as very fine cracks.

Step 4: Sintering and Glazing 

Full-contour zirconia restorations are synthesized and glazed using chairside in the compact CEREC SpeedFire. This induction technology allows for unprecedented short sintering and cooking times. 

What you need to know about the CEREC system

The system allows the Dental Easy Care dentist to carry out each and every stage of the design and manufacture of the parts within the clinic and in a much shorter time than what is regularly performed. would need if any other traditional method will be used. Furthermore, this system allows various materials such as ceramics, alumina and zirconium to be used for the manufacture of different dental prostheses such as fixed prostheses, inlays, onlays, overlays, dental veneers, etc. 

A common concern of patients is that the dental pieces do not last as long as when they are made in the traditional way, due to the speed with which they are made with the CEREC system. However, the longevity of the restorations has been verified by means of different studies in the medium and long term, these studies confirm that the parts and materials have high survival rates, which is why the work carried out with CEREC is much faster and with guaranteed quality. 

Another thing that is important to know is that the CEREC system allows different stages to be saved, such as the impression and the provisional, and this in turn results in restorations made with this system being cheaper than traditional ones, since they involve less material. and less work. 

Advantages and Disadvantages of CEREC

Among the advantages of the system we can find: 

  • It is easy to use, so you can trust that our specialists will make proper use of it and will have no problem meeting the needs of our patients. 
  • It is quite effective, so the patient does not have to worry about errors in the scan, nor in the final pieces. 
  • Reduce the time, the procedure is carried out in a much shorter time than it would take if it were carried out in the traditional way.
  • The entire procedure can be performed within the same clinic. 
  • It can be useful for orthodontics, since it can take digital impressions of the jaw and these can be used to design and produce orthodontic appliances such as the Invisalign

However, as with everything, there are also certain disadvantages: 

  • It can only be used for metal-free
  • Does not present an application in implantology

So now you know, at Dental Easy Care we care about our patients and their dental health, that is why we are up to date with the best technological advances and we have CEREC, to offer them the best service and as quickly as possible.
