SHANGHAI, Dec. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The 1st China International Forum on Dental CAD/CAM will be held in DenTech China 2013 (the 17th China Int'l Exhibition & Symposium on Dental Equipment, Technology & Products) during October 23-26, 2013.
The organizer, UMB ShowStar, together with the major international CAD/CAM companies and "CAD/CAM Special" of IDPC will jointly invite famous international speakers and hundreds of main Chinese dental hospitals and labs to discuss future development of Digital Imaging(e.g. CBCT), Digital Impression, Restoration Design, Surgical Guide Templates in Implant Surgery, Image-Guided Implant Surgery, Computer-Assisted Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery manufacturing, Additive & Subtractive manufacturing and other CAD/CAM technologies in China.
The dental use of CAD/CAM can be traced back to 1970s with the first worker to explore its application in dentistry has now become a well accepted technology in most modern dental laboratories and for some enterprising clinicians at the chair side.
A further development in the CAD/CAM technologies used in dentistry is the transition from closed(e.g. one device only tied to one particular type of material manufacturing) to open access systems. Whereas in the past the digitizing, designing and manufacturing came as a closed system, more and more the technology is being opened up and the component part of a CAD/CAM system can be purchased separately. This creates much greater flexibility in that data can be acquired from a range of sources (intra-oral scanner, contact or laser model digitizer, CT, MRI), appropriate design software can be matched to the object to be manufactured (crown and bridge frameworks, partial denture frameworks, customized implant and implant abutments). Thus, one is no longer constrained by the computer numerically controlled machining technologies that are currently used in most dental CAD/CAM systems.
As the most important dental event in China with the longest history and largest scale, DenTech China has been taking its eyes on products with the most advanced technologies for almost 20 years, and promoting them to dental professionals from all over the world. DenTech 2013 will continue its unique charm. Booth booking will kick off on January 4, 2013. For more information, please visit www.dentech.com.cn.
