Abstract

CAD/CAM called as Computer Aided Design/Computer Aided Manufacturing was introduced to dentistry in the mid-1980s. CAD/CAM restoration fabrication is available as both chairside and chair side—laboratory integrated. In the past 20 years, there have been new developments in dental materials and computer technology which has led to the success of CAD/CAM technology. The development of information technology has helped us to devise and build 3D models, based on virtual prototypes with the help of a computer numerical control (CNC) device. Computers can now be used to create accurately detailed projects that can be assessed from different perspectives in a process known as computer aided design (CAD). To materialize virtual objects using CAD, a computer- aided manufacturing (CAM) process has been developed. CAM operates using a machine connected to a computer to convert a virtual file into a real object. CAD/CAM technology employs a non-invasive three dimensional (3D) imaging system. This paper gives you a brief knowledge about the types and uses of CAD/CAM technology.
