Fayetteville, NC (PRWEB) April 17, 2014
Carolina Comfort Dental, located at 5511 Raeford Road, Suite 225 in Fayetteville, NC, is pleased to announce the introduction of Cerec®AC with Omnicam CAD/CAM technology into their family dental practice. Cerec®AC with Omnicam is a Computer Assisted Design/Computer Assisted Manufacturing system that enables them to provide custom dental crowns in just one office visit.
Traditionally, a dental crown required a series of dental office visits spread out over several weeks. First, an impression was made of the teeth and then sent to a dental laboratory for fabrication: a process that takes an average of three weeks. In a subsequent appointment, the custom crown was fitted to the patient. With the Cerec® system, a 3D digital video color scan of the teeth is captured and then used to fabricate the custom dental crown, right in the dentist’s office. With the Cerec®AC with Omnicam system, there are no more gooey impressions and no more waiting three weeks for a crown to be fabricated in a dental laboratory. Patients can walk out of the office with a custom dental crown in just one quick and easy appointment. This provides a huge benefit to the patients of Carolina Comfort Dental: particularly the military personnel and private contractors from Fort Bragg who are employed or work overseas and are home for only short periods of time.
According to Dr. Patrick O’Brien, D.M.D., “This awesome technology provides a tremendous benefit to our patients. Cerec®AC with Omnicam CAD/CAM technology eliminates the need for gooey impressions and in most cases, eliminates the need for a dental laboratory altogether. In the cases where a dental laboratory is needed, a 3D digital video scan of the teeth is sent directly to the lab. This cuts down on the number of appointments needed to receive a custom dental crown and saves our patients both time and money. Investing in this cutting-edge technology is a part of an ongoing commitment to utilizing the most advanced technology available to improve patient care for our valued clients.”
