What is CAD/CAM
Computer aided design (CAD) involves the design and creation of three-dimensional models for restorations and appliances such as veneers, onlays, inlays, crowns, and bridges with absolute precision.
Computer aided manufacturing (CAM) then uses the geometrical design data to control an automated milling machine. This digital manufacturing process has many benefits including:
- Metal free restorations
- Natural looking and feeling materials
- Single dental visits
- Improved fit and function
- Longer lasting
CEREC - Single visit tooth replacement!
CEREC is an advanced dental restorative system that allows Dr. Latham to restore decayed teeth, place crowns, remove defective or unsightly fillings, or place cosmetic veneers in just ONE appointment!
WHAT DOES IT STAND FOR?
CHAIRSIDE: The technology is in the dental operatory and used while you are in the chair
ECONOMICAL: The procedure is economical for both dentist and patient
RESTORATIONS: The procedure restores your tooth to its natural beauty, function, and strength
ESTHETIC: The restorations are metal-free and tooth-colored
CERAMIC: High-strength ceramics are used that are close in composition to your natural tooth structure
Lasers are a safe and gentle alternative to traditional dental tools. Using a laser, Dr. Latham can perform many procedures that normally would require anesthesia and a dental drill.
Comfort & Versatility
Laser Dentistry has many benefits for dental procedures due to its versatility. For example, lasers can be used for both bone and soft tissue procedures. From removal of decay to root canals and even smile design, lasers reduces any possible discomfort that is associated with older technology and it vastly reduces your recovery time.
Accuracy & Precision
Dr. Latham is able to remove tooth decay, bone and soft tissue precisely while leaving surrounding areas unaffected. This conserves more of your natural tooth structure, helping you to maintain and preserve the teeth you were born with.
Digital X Rays use special sensors instead of photographic film.
This technological advancement provides many benefits from safety to improved treatment outcomes.
- Safety- By greatly reducing your radiation exposure
- Time Savings - bypassing the need for traditional film processing time lessens the time you spend in the dental chair.
- Better outcomes - Improved image clarity increases Dr. Latham’s ability to diagnose and treat conditions
Intraoral Imaging offers you a unique view of your mouth allowing Dr. Latham to educate you while directly involving you in your treatment plan.
Transferring magnified intraoral images to a computer screen allows you to see your own intraoral conditions with better quality than a traditional mouth mirror. This clarity allows both you and Dr. Latham to visualize the diagnosis and to cooperatively discuss your treatment needs.
3-D Imaging/Guided Surgery
Dr. Latham utilizes advanced imaging techniques to create three-dimensional surgical guides for your dental implants.
Not only does three-dimensional technology offer pinpoint accuracy for implant placement, it also greatly reduces radiation exposure. Three-dimensional imaging is also useful for diagnosis of sinus issues and other pathology.
