Major Approaches on the CAD/CAM System in Prosthodontics and Implants: A Review

Bruno Afonso Cortez Martinez, Idiberto Jose Zotarelli Filho and Livia Helena de Araujo Castro Nunes

Introduction: Since 1980s, the use of CAD/CAM (Computer Aided Design/Computer Aided Manufacturing) systems in dentistry came into force. The CAD/CAM system was introduced in dentistry with the purpose of promoting the manufacture of prostheses based on the last generation three-dimensional system. Objective: The present work aimed to present the main benefits of the CAD/CAM system for the creation of dental prostheses, making historical research and its relevance in contemporary dentistry. Methods: Experimental and clinical studies were included (case reports, retrospective, prospective and randomized trials) with qualitative and / or quantitative analysis. The words were included Dental implants, Dental Prostheses and CAD/CAM system. Conclusion: The use of digital tools for the automated manufacturing of implant and prosthesis parts (CAD/CAM system) is a viable reality in dentistry. This system produces high-quality, standardized, accurate prosthetic restorations with perfect detail.
