How to Design and Mill Dental Restorations with Delcam DentCAD 2014 DentMILL 2014




In this section, we will explain in more detail how to design and mill dental restorations with Delcam DentCAD 2014 DentMILL 2014. We will use an example of a single crown restoration to illustrate the steps and procedures involved. However, you can apply the same principles and methods to other types of restorations as well.


How to import and edit dental scans




The first step in designing a dental restoration is to import or scan the patient's dental data. You can do this by using one of the following methods:


  • If you have an intraoral scanner or a desktop scanner that is compatible with Delcam DentCAD 2014 DentMILL 2014, you can connect it to your computer and scan directly from the software. You can also use a face scanner to capture the patient's facial features and expressions for better aesthetic results.



  • If you have an impression or a plaster model of the patient's dentition, you can use a scanner that can scan physical objects and convert them into digital models. You can then import the scanned data into Delcam DentCAD 2014 DentMILL 2014 as STL files.



  • If you have an existing digital model of the patient's dentition from another dental CAD system, you can import it into Delcam DentCAD 2014 DentMILL 2014 as STL files. You can also import other types of files such as OBJ, PLY, IGES, STEP, etc., depending on your source system.



Once you have imported or scanned the dental data into Delcam DentCAD 2014 DentMILL 2014, you need to edit and align them to create a complete and accurate digital model of the patient's dentition. You can do this by using the following tools and features:



  • The alignment tool, which allows you to align two or more scans or models based on common points or surfaces. You can use this tool to align upper and lower jaws, left and right sides, impression scans and intraoral scans, etc.The editing tool, which allows you to modify and adjust the scans or models according to your needs and preferences. You can use this tool to trim, smooth, fill, erase, move, rotate, scale, mirror, etc. the scans or models.



  • The analysis tool, which allows you to check and measure the quality and accuracy of the scans or models. You can use this tool to inspect the surface deviation, thickness, undercut, margin line, contact points, occlusion, etc. of the scans or models.



How to create and modify dental designs




The next step in designing a dental restoration is to create and modify the dental design using the various tools and features of Delcam DentCAD 2014. You can do this by following these steps:


  • Select the type of restoration that you want to design from the project manager. For example, if you want to design a single crown, select the crown option.



  • Select the tooth or teeth that you want to restore from the design window. You can select multiple teeth by holding the Ctrl key.



  • Select the material and color that you want to use for the restoration from the property panel. You can choose from a wide range of materials such as zirconia, metal, ceramic, composite, etc.



  • Select the shape library that you want to use for the restoration from the property panel. You can choose from a variety of shape libraries such as natural, generic, anatomic, etc.



  • Place the shape on the selected tooth or teeth by clicking on the design window. You can adjust the position and orientation of the shape by using the mouse or keyboard.



  • Modify the shape of the restoration by using the freeform sculpting tool from the toolbar. You can use this tool to add, remove, smooth, flatten, carve, etc. the shape according to your needs and preferences.



  • Adjust the margin line of the restoration by using the margin line detection tool from the toolbar. You can use this tool to automatically or manually detect and edit the margin line of the restoration.



  • Adjust the occlusion of the restoration by using the occlusion adjustment tool from the toolbar. You can use this tool to automatically or manually adjust and edit the occlusion of the restoration.



  • Check and verify the design of the restoration by using the analysis tool from the toolbar. You can use this tool to inspect and measure the quality and accuracy of the design.



How to export and send designs to DentMILL




The final step in designing a dental restoration is to export and send the design to DentMILL for milling preparation. You can do this by following these steps:


  • Select the design that you want to export or send from the project manager.



  • Select the export or send option from the file menu or toolbar.



  • Select DentMILL as your destination software from the dialog box that appears.
