Dr. Gowd’s is the first to place CAD/CAM based dental crowns in South India in the year, 2012. Computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) have become an increasingly popular part of dentistry over the past 25 years. Dr. Gowd’s Dental Hospitals is equipped with a modern and technologically advanced in-house laboratory. This allows our hospitals to undertake CAD/CAM dentistry that decreases the turn-around time for treatments, much appreciated by international patients who have tight schedules.
Our focus is not solely on the treatment. At Dr Gowd’s Dental Hospitals, we focus on how you will look for the rest of your life. With our invisible braces, you will benefit from fast, comfortable braces that are virtually invisible during treatment. And after treatment, you will have a spectacular smile that goes beyond just straight teeth.
Following the end of treatment, teeth often have a tendency to return to their original positions, which is called a relapse. There are a variety of factors that may influence the possibility of relapse including the type of treatment. Because all teeth have a tendency to relapse, it may be necessary to wear some type of removable retention device at night following treatment.
The technology is so precise that dental restorations made by CAD/CAM often fit better than those made by hand. Patient satisfaction is being increased simply because you can have your tooth repaired in a single day, instead of having to return for repeat appointments. Spending time in the dentist’s chair is low on most people’s priority lists, and CAD/CAM dentistry technology is helping you move on faster than ever before.
Cerec 3D is the state of the art technology that makes it easy for the dentists and patients in making all kinds of restorations with micro millimeter accuracy in a span of few hours. Clinical applications include metal and all-ceramic crowns and bridges, onlays, inlays, and veneers, as well as a variety of implant restorations. The system can also produce custom implant abutments in both zirconia and titanium.
By using the CAD/CAM technology, we are in complete control of the final result. Since the crown, inlay, onlay or veneer is designed and fabricated from start to finish by us, we have total control over how it will look and fit. A crown made in a laboratory is under the control of technicians and assistants who work of plaster models and have not even seen the patient, and this affects the end result.
