Why Do We Need 3D Printing In Dentistry

Digital dentistry is transforming dental workflows. By integrating 3D printing in your lab or practice you can go from scan to model even faster. Using 3D printers you are able to manufacture dental models efficiently, fast, and reliably. 

A digital dentistry workflow simplifies existing processes and allows for improved communication with the dental laboratory and dental practice.

What Can You Achieve With 3D Printing?

Utilising 3D printing as part of a digital dentistry workflow enables cost-effective, mass-customised production of a wide range of dental products such as biocompatible surgical guides, diagnostic models, splints, aligner models, full dentures, indirect bonding trays, Hawley retainers, patterns for casting and pressing, custom impression trays, permament and temporary restorations, occlusal splints and guards plus more in-house at the touch of a button. Moreover, 3D printing can produce complex designs, such as undercuts, that are difficult to produce with milling

Why Printing Over Conventional Manufacturing?

Moulds can be taken digitally, manipulated as necessary on-screen and then printed within hours.

Printing accurate and consistent orthodontic models requires less labour. Devices such as retainers, splints and surgical guides can be created from the digital model provided and then printed for direct use by the patient. This increases patient satisfaction by saving them time waiting and chair time at the dental practice.
