Few occupational fields offer such a clear example of the transition from manual to digital work as that of dental technology.
With CADdent this transition can be handled very individually - no matter how far your laboratory has advanced into the digital age. Cooperation with CADdent can begin at exactly the foot step that best suits your way of working. Regardless of whether you send us finished design data or a hand-made plaster model, we will make it a precise product in any case. This way you can take your personal path to digital dental technology in a relaxed and professional manner. With all the advantages that cooperation with CADdent offers: the latest technology, no hardware investments, in-depth training, the best service, and much more.
Dental technicians are craftsmen - but also artists.
With us as a partner, you can concentrate on exactly what you do best and what creates the greatest added value: aesthetic, technically sophisticated prosthetics.
The digital dental technology achieved with CADdent also influences the quality of the overall package that a laboratory can offer its dentists. Because dental practices are increasingly relying on digital equipment - be it in the form of intraoral scanners or simulation programs with which they can realistically present the new look to their patients before the treatment begins.
Through the partnership with CADdent laboratories can actively use this development and, in addition to precise prosthetics, also pass on intelligent implant planning and detailed documentation to their dentists.
CAD / CAM in dental technology leads laboratories to a new quality of their services through optimized work processes, more precise prosthetics and the use of innovative materials that were not possible in previous processes. With the introduction into digital dental technology laboratories lay the most important foundation stone for their development in the coming years.
The workflow in digital dental technology has four main steps: scan data - 3D design - transmission of the data to production - production in the milling center, in LaserMelting or in 3D printing.
It starts with precise scan data. These occur during the conventional start as follows: the laboratory produces a conventional plaster model from the impression of the denture.
Then the 1st possibility follows analog: This model is sent to CADdent, scanned there and the 3D construction created. The respective product is then manufactured using the milling, LaserMelting or 3D printing process. After production, the prosthetics are elaborated and adapted, if desired, so that the complete work, including the model sent in, goes back to the laboratory.
2nd possibility - digital: the laboratory scans the plaster model with its own scanner, designs the product, sends the data to CADdent, where the production takes place. Or the laboratory sends the scan data to CADdent, where the product is designed and manufactured. If the laboratory receives intraoral scans from the practitioner, the options are the same - construction in the laboratory, production at CADdent or construction and production at CADdent. No matter how digitally equipped and prepared the dental laboratory is, with CADdent our collaboration can begin at any foot step. Whether model, scan data or finished construction - CADdent complements the service as required by the laboratory.
Some laboratories have invested in their own milling machine or plan to do so. Most of these conventional milling machines can only process soft materials such as wax or zirconia. In this case, CADdent offers the possibility to purchase the zirconia, which is produced in cooperation with the associate company MINDFAB, at top conditions. The advantage lies in the reduced inventory, which can be very complex due to the variety of materials used for zirconium oxides. As a partner laboratory, you only have to keep in stock the zirconia types which you mainly mill. All other zirconia can be obtained from CADdent in the usual quality, at reasonable prices and with the fastest delivery. A competitive advantage, because in this way you have various materials milled in all sizes and colors or as a blank within 24 hours on your workbench.
The same applies here: CADdent makes every form of cooperation possible. Above all, CADdent offers a high-performance milling center which processes all materials into precise frameworks, crowns, bridges, etc.
Digitization with CADdent creates more profit because the less lucrative products and processes are outsourced.
The laboratory can concentrate on interesting projects such as veneers, large bridges or implant restorations. Because finishing processes are the area in the laboratory which is economically interesting and also offers the laboratory the best opportunities to distinguish itself as a partner with aesthetic standards and perfect craftsmanship.
