Role of computer aided design and computer aided manufacturing technology in prosthetic implant restorations

Hesham Ibrahim Othman


In this review article, the current status of CAD/CAM systems developed around the world is evaluated, with particular focus on the field of ceramic implant abutment. The use of dental CAD/CAM systems is promising not only in the field of prosthetic dentistry, but also in other fields of dentistry. CAD/CAM technology will contribute to the patient’s Health and comfort specially in the aging society.
