Program Description:

In the last two decades Prosthetic Dentistry had a major shift to the use of CAD/CAM systems. This technology has made laboratory procedures more straight forward to the extent that one day prostheses are now feasible. Following this wave, different tooth colored materials only used by CAD/CAM technology, are presented to dentistry to fabricate inlays, onlays, crowns and bridges. At the same time, it is now possible to design and fabricate partial removable dentures with additive kind of CAD/CAM technology.

So, for an up-to-date dentist the familiarity with digital dentistry is a must do.

Understanding this necessity, Prosthodontics Department of TUMS Dental School has planned a course covering different aspects of digital dentistry. To address the problems of traveling during restriction time the course is presented in blended form. The course provides a great chance for making the knowledge of digital dentistry up to date and treating patients with CAD/CAM workflows including diagnosis and treatment planning, tooth preparation and making temporaries, scanning, designing and manufacturing.
