Fabricating the Final Prosthesis utilizing high-end 3D Printers and new materials; This is here Now and the Future looks Good
3D printing has been used in dentistry quite extensively for the past 10 years but mostly for fabricating models and printing of wax for lost wax techniques to fabricate partials and pressed ceramics.
In the past few years, 3D printing has started a surge in fabricating final products for the patient. Nightguards and bite splints are perfect examples of this.
With the advent of new cross polymerization composite resins, the printing of end products has just expanded to fabricating complete dentures, metal-free cast partials, printed chrome cobalt partials, printed crowns and bridges.
The digital revolution in dentistry has been discussed and promised for the past 30 years. With these new product breakthroughs, the digital dental revolution has arrived.
Kevin Dillon will give an overview of the processes and science of the products.
