Growing Adoption of CAD/CAM in Dentistry to Offer Growth Opportunities for the Dental Materials Market

Computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) systems are widely used in dentistry, mainly for fabricating inlays, crowns, fixed partial dentures, and implant prostheses. CAD/CAM technology has been applied to the fabrication of complete dentures, offering many advantages to dentists and patients. These technologies reduce the number of appointments and increase the availability of spare dentures as digital data is saved.

In addition, laboratory work can be completed more conveniently and cost-effectively than traditional methods. Additionally, CAD/CAM technology’s high precision in dental restoration is increasing its adoption in dentistry. It is used to design and manufacture milled crowns and bridges and design fabricated abutments used in dental implants. This technology is also used in customizing dental prosthetics, such as dental crowns made of zirconium.

The adoption of this technology has been increasing in laboratories across developed countries. Technological advancements and the availability of hardware/software alternatives are accelerating the adoption of CAD/CAM systems, and even smaller dental clinics are moving ahead with the adoption. Expanding applications of CAD/CAM for dental materials other than conventionally used materials offer opportunities for the market’s growth. For instance, only zirconia or alumina was previously available for machining copings, but now materials such as glass ceramics are also being used.
