We are proud to provide CEREC 3-D Technology to our patients. The CEREC system has revolutionized the dental and orthodontic field by meeting the needs of our patients in a more convenient manner. Gone are the days where the patient must suffer for multiple impressions or gagging to complete orthodontic records. CEREC Technology can help to design and fabricate the orthodontic appliances or oral devices for treatment of obstructive sleep apnea or TMD!
How does CEREC work?
This simple process only takes two steps! First, the teeth are prepared to be digitally photographed by a 3-D camera, which eliminates those messy, cumbersome traditional impressions. Next, the digital information will be forwarded to the lab so computer-aided design (CAD) software is used to design and create customized appliances specifically to closely match your teeth and meet your specific sleep apnea, TMD or orthodontic needs, including Invisalign.
What are the advantages of CEREC?
CEREC holds several advantages over conventional impression systems, including:
- The initial digital impressions can be used for orthodontic records, and the diagnosis also used in the fabrication of Invisalign, orthodontic appliances and TMD or sleep apnea devices, thus eliminating further visits.
- The entire process is usually completed in less than few minutes.
