CAD/CAM solutions

With Dr Jena Ward BoralH(DentSci) GradDipDent (Hons 1st Class) BSc

Overview

The E4D CAD/CAM Solution is an innovation in same day dentistry. Traditionally a dental crown needed to be prepared at one appointment, made in a laboratory and then fitted at a subsequent appointment. With the E4D (in clinically suitable cases) the tooth to be crowned is prepared and the preparation recorded with the CAD/CAM camera. This digital recording is then used to design the restoration. The designed restoration is then milled from a block of porcelain while you wait. The restoration is then fitted and tested and finally polished, all in one time-saving appointment.

Inlays and Onlays

An inlay is a restoration (filling) consisting of a solid substance such as gold or porcelain that is fitted into a cavity in a tooth and cemented into place

An onlay is the same as an inlay, except that it extends to replace a cusp. Crowns are onlays which completely cover all surfaces of a tooth.

Restorations created with the E4D CAD/CAM System are an alternative to fillings and are used to replace part of a tooth that has suffered from decay, wear or accidental damage. They are made of stronger materials than composite fillings and can last longer. They are especially suitable for hard working back teeth and large restorations on front teeth. The restorations are milled from very strong tooth-coloured ceramics. An E4D restoration is virtually undetectable visually from surrounding teeth.

Damage and decay that lie within the indented top surfaces of the teeth, or the cusps, are treated with inlays. Damage and decay that extends to one or more of the cusps of the teeth are treated with onlays.

Conservative Dentistry

This technology produces a conservative preparation that minimises the amount of healthy tooth structure that may need to be removed. This is often a suitable alternative to traditional crowns.

Ceramic restorations such as E4D inlays and onlays generally attain aesthetic longevity and are not likely to discolour over time like composite restorations often do.

Crowns

When a tooth is too severely damaged for an inlay or onlay then an E4D crown may be a suitable option. Crowns, or caps, are fitted over the top part of your tooth and restore the tooth’s appearance, strength and aesthetic elements. Importantly, a crown provides strength and protection to the remaining tooth structure.

Intra-oral camera

With the use of an Intra-oral camera, the dental team at Jephson Street Dental can display your teeth and gums on an overhead monitor. This enables us to explain to you in more detail than is possible with an x-ray, exactly what is occurring.

Happy gas

English scientist Joseph Priestly first discovered nitrous oxide (happy gas) in the early 1770’s. It has been used successfully in medicine as an anaesthetic since 1840. It is safe to use on adults and children with no side effects and you regain full function only minutes after ceasing inhalation.

Diagnodent

Incorporating a small laser to detect the first signs of cavities on the chewing surface of the back teeth, diagnodent is crucial in early intervention treatment.

Digital X-Rays

Emitting a small percentage of the radiation of conventional x-rays, digital x-rays can be viewed almost instantaneously on an overhead monitor, as there is no film processing required. This is significant in providing you with a more efficient service and exposure to a greatly reduced level of radiation.
