Dental 3D Printing provides customisation and treatment arrangements which makes it the key for dentistry successful results in complex cases. As compared to conventional methods, making a 3D model supplant for missing teeth is more precise with 3D Printing!
Crowns are rapidly created just by checking and displaying the patient’s teeth. Dental 3D printing is the key to modern dentistry, as it is really helpful for dental labs and dentist. Prosthesis or implants have to match with the patient’s morphology. With digital dentistry patient planning for dental treatments have become more precise and accurate results can be predicted.
Use of 3D Printing for Dental Treatment Planning :
3D printed braces with LED lights: The aim of these braces is to align and straighten the teeth faster. The semi translucent 3d printed braces put a battery on each tooth. In order to power the light because the energy actually helps the teeth to move faster. Nontoxic lithium batteries used in these braces. Though these braces are not accessible for public use. Yet it gives a nice insight on the researches made in this sector.
3D printed dental implants: It is actually possible to create a 3D model to replace a missing tooth. 3D printing allows to get a replacement tooth faster and with more accuracy then the traditional method. Also, it is easy, economical and the final product has a good finish too.
3D printed crowns and bridges: This is a dentist friendly technique which reduces dentist’s effort and time to rectify the mistake. One just has to scan the impression/cast and crown can be made over it in no time. Thus it can repaired digitally if any mistakes observed, thereby making dentist practice less exhausting without the concern of approaching the dental lab if the clinician has the software and 3Dprinter.
Apart from the above; 3D printing in dental can be used to make:
- Surgical Guides for complex zygomatic implants and cancer rehabilitation cases.
- Bleaching Trays for whitening
- Night guards
- Aligners for crooked teeth
- 3D models for diagnostic purposes and patient treatment planning
- In combination of the software of CBCT scan it can used in efficient computerised imaging.
Digital Dentistry requires special 3D printing materials. Indeed when it comes to dental products, you have to use a biocompatible material, like the Dental SG, or the biocompatible resins offered by carbon and another companies.
Hence, as you can see this amazing manufacturing process is already getting its bearings, 3D printing in dental restorations have a bright and promising future together to come in dentistry. It could help to create even more dental products for dental labs in the upcoming years.
