Dental Multi Material 3D Jetting

multi material

by Kateryna Filippovych, Process lead, Océ, a Canon company

Imagine 3D printed full color artificial teeth for permanent use. Why not? This question we asked ourselves two years ago. And our scientific curiosity resulted in first multi material and -color 3D jetted tooth model.
Driving vision is to bring dentistry on a new level of multi-material and colourful 3D printing.
This presentation will provide some insights on the unique jetting possibilities of biocompatible dental resins in combination with 3D workflow software.

The possible role of 3D computed tomography models in Thoracic Surgery

Università degli studi di Perugia

by Professor Franscesco Puma, Chief of Thoracic Surgery Department. Full Professor in Thoracic Surgery, Università degli studi di Perugia

We present our experience in the use of the 3D computed tomography – based template in the surgical planning of complex procedures in Thoracic Surgery. We used this approach in two different clinical settings: Tracheal surgery and surgery for extended chest wall tumors.
In the latter, this approach made it possible to obtain an ideal customization of the chest wall prosthesis, precisely adapted to the postoperative defect of the chest wall.
The 3D model of the trachea, larynx and carina, allowed us to ascertain the extent of the presumed airway segment to resect and the possible need for additional surgical release maneuvers.

From digital to real: 3D printed model as new tool for modern general surgeons

From digital to real

by Professor Luigi Marano, University of Siena

Over the last years, the increase of intraoperative safety for patients and surgeons as well as the concept of “precision surgery” have been advocated as main topics of surgical research, particularly as regards the minimally invasive approaches. The proper patient-specific preoperative planning is mandatory to achieve a meticulous knowledge of the target anatomy, thus helping surgeons to imagine in their minds critical steps and potential complications of surgery. In addition, the more the anatomy is complex due to native anatomic anomalies, disease-related distortions or prior surgical interventions, the harder is the surgical strategy to apply especially in minimally invasive settings.

3D Guided Endodontics

Guided Endodontics

by Andres Torres, Endodontic specialist, KU Leuven (OMFS-IMPATH), Belgium

This presentation will focus on the latest techniques used in endodontics to achieve success even in the most difficult cases helped by 3D design and printing technologies.
In this method, a digital impression of the patient’s jaw is taken and registered to the data from a CBCT scan. Then, a path for the treatment is created up to the target location on the CBCT scan. Finally, a guide for the bur being used during treatment is designed by means of a computer-aided design (CAD) software and printed using a 3D printer.
The concept of 3D Guided endodontics is becoming a valuable tool among clinicians as it seems to be a promising technique offering a higher predictable outcome and lower risk of iatrogenic damage. Minimally invasive treatment can be performed, and chair-side time can be reduced.
