The journey to becoming a leading digital prosthetic specialist

 After many years of learning experience and achieving certain successes, Dr. Phan Hoang Hai has shared with young people who are pursuing the field of cosmetic dental prosthetics about the journey to becoming an expert in cosmetic dentistry.  digital teeth shape and instill a passion to help young people realize their dreams. 

Always learning constantly to develop your skills

What is a digital dental restoration?

Digital prosthetics is a method of applying modern dental technologies to the treatment process or production of prosthetic dental products.  In which, the technique of designing and manufacturing through computer – CAD/CAM is most commonly used today.

 SCAN/CAD/CAM/CNC technology is widely applied in digital prosthetic dentistry processes from examination, diagnosis to treatment at large hospitals or dental clinics. 

CAD/CAM technology is widely applied in dentistry

SCAN/CAD/CAM/CNC technology consists of parts that perform different tasks: SCAN performs the scanning process, converts the physical data of the molars into digitized form to design and adjust the tooth model.  restoration on the machine at the CAD stage, then CAM will receive the data and automatically control the lathe (CNC), “Robot” will directly manufacture the final restoration according to the design (CAD).

 This system is computer controlled to perform 3D printing or grinding/milling operations on a solid block of material to create a new dental restoration model with perfect accuracy.

 The optimal point of digitized prosthetic technique is the ability to design details of prosthetic teeth on a computer with errors in Micrometers, technicians can easily edit and then transfer the design to the production system.  Automated CAM output for restorations made from specialized blocks of material prepared in the CNC machine.

CAD/CAM technology is superior in many aspects compared to traditional manual manufacturing methods, in terms of accuracy, hardness, durability and time to complete finished products, and is continuously improved to achieve  perfection in both physical and aesthetic properties.

What is the Digital Restoration Specialist Duties?

 Most digital prosthetics will follow this basic process:

 Step 1: Record the shape and details of the tooth pattern

 Doctors use scanners in the mouth to record detailed surface and shape of teeth or tooth samples to transfer 3-D data to a computer.

 This data will show all the tooth surface information, the correlation of the tooth with the jawbone and the occlusal correlation, the exact touch point to serve the design of restorations, ensuring maximum function.  chewing of new dental restorations.

 Step 2: Design teeth (porcelain) on the computer

3D design on computer

After performing the data scanning process, the computer will collect information and design the prosthetic porcelain teeth through specialized 3D software.  A special feature of this technology is the ability to process a variety of Labs from crowns, crowns, bridges, veneers, Inlays/Outlays, Implants and even individual Abutments.

 CAD can design and create detailed dental anatomy, fully automatically determine the anatomical structure and finish line exactly according to the shape of the abutment.  The computer will record every line and smallest detail to fine-tune in an automated process, ensuring the perfect precision for the final product. 

Step 3: Manufacturing and finishing porcelain teeth

 After completing the design on the computer, the digital prosthetic doctor will select the most suitable type of porcelain embryo for each case, based on the color, size, tooth position as well as  required rationality.  CAM technology, when receiving all the information, will control the lathe and robot system to complete the product.  The new teeth will be cut according to the specifications of the previously designed prototype using a computer controlled CNC machine system.

 The entire production process takes place automatically in a short time with a very small error of a few Micron depending on the parameters set and the machine – material system used.

 Finished porcelain teeth created from CAM technology will ensure almost absolute accuracy.  Besides, the hardness and durability of the teeth are also optimized, increasing the bearing capacity when chewing, effectively preventing cracking and breaking.  At the same time, the digital dental prosthetic technique also achieves aesthetics, natural surface characteristics, optical properties, and opacity almost like real teeth, which are difficult to distinguish when viewed with the naked eye, but also very attractive.  required skill – certain experience from the implementation team. 

Dr. Phan Hoang Hai shares about the responsibility of a digital prosthetic specialist

Doctor Phan Hoang Hai always strives to improve his knowledge and capacity to become an expert in cosmetic prosthetics

 Doctor Phan Hoang Hai shared, to become a digital prosthetic specialist, it is necessary to make efforts to cultivate and invest in knowledge, time, finance,…

  •  About knowledge: knowledge is a solid foundation to build your skills.  Constantly learning to improve understanding of the scientific background, operating methods and advanced technology applications in the dental treatment process.
  •  About time: learning must go hand in hand with practice, time is an investment that helps professionals improve their skills through practicing the knowledge they have learned and studied.  The more time invested in practical experience, the better the technical skills will be.
  • In terms of finance: the modern equipment and machinery in the field of dentistry today are not cheap.  In order to be able to research and apply it to the actual treatment process, digital prosthetics need to invest in modern dental equipment.  Therefore, finance is also an essential factor in training to become a digital prosthetic.

 But above all these factors, passion is the key to leading the way to the goal you have set.  During the process of improvement and development, immersing yourself in the investment in terms of knowledge, time and finance will encounter many difficulties that are easy to discourage yourself, but it is the flames of passion that will  pull you back up and continue on your journey to success. 

Sharing is a way to keep values ​​alive for a long time

 For Dr. Phan Hoang Hai, it is not only about becoming a digital prosthetic specialist, but also ensuring credibility in the role and responsibility with customers.  The doctor shared that once you become an expert, you have to go through a process of in-depth study and constantly seek new knowledge.

 However, a doctor’s skill is not only judged by the knowledge in books, but also by the application of those “capital” in treatment, bringing results to the client.  mine.

 The reputation of a digital prosthetic specialist is built on their dedication to the dental field, as evidenced by the actual achievements they have made over the course of their career.  With the desire to bring bright smiles to all customers, Dr. Phan Hoang Hai welcomes and takes care of customers like a relative, always being meticulous and thoughtful in each stage.

In addition, Dr. Phan Hoang Hai also wishes to spread the great values ​​​​in protecting oral health to the community.  To do that, he always aims to build an environment for people who share the same passion in the field of dentistry to learn together, strive to develop and spread their energy to everyone.  People.

 The efforts in the past become meaningless, the great value that you have built gradually fades if you just keep them for yourself.  Sharing knowledge and experience will help the dental community develop more, towards a future where everyone is exposed to the safest and most modern dentistry.
