Matt Petch▸ Task 1: Introducing DTs


When I was a child I found going to the dentist a very traumatic experience. Four decades later I still find it unpleasant but it no longer makes me want to vomit in a bucket. I can cope with it now and I'm sure my growing comfort has nothing to do with maturity but rather a result of amazing technology a modern dental surgeon has at their disposal.

I recently required a crown and I found the technology used very interesting. My dentist had an in house CAD CAM setup for crowns. He was able to take a 3D digital scan of my teeth and send the information to a Digital milling machine which then created my new tooth out of a small block of porcelain.
