3D Printing is taking dentistry to a whole new level of personalisation

Already hailed as a hugely disruptive technology in the manufacturing, engineering and retail sectors, 3D printing is reshaping the way dentists approach personalised care.

Of course, the ability to create a tooth while a patient waits in the dental chair has been around for 30 years. For decades dentists have been able to mill new teeth, crowns and veneers from a block of dental material, using scanners and 3D modelling software. Continue reading “3D Printing is taking dentistry to a whole new level of personalisation”

Dentists use high resolution SLA additive manufacturing for digital dentistry (Video)

3D printing is gradually revolutionizing many industries, from design, to engineering, to medicine, and even to dentistry. The latest in 3D printed dentistry comes from additive manufacturing company Formlabs. Their Form 2 3D printer, which retails for $3,499, offers its users high resolution SLA additive manufacturing and is reportedly designed with digital dentistry in mind. That is, Formlabs boasts their SLA 3D printer is capable of additively manufacturing high quality surgical guides for dentists, retainers and aligners, educational models, as well as crowns and bridges.

Interactive Workshop ‘Workflow for quality assured 3D printed dental prosthetics’ powered by ManSYS, at 3D Dental Printing Conference

The 3D Dental Printing Conference will host on Jan 26, 2016, the interactive workshop ‘Workflow for quality assured 3D printed dental prosthetics’, powered by ManSYS.

The ManSYS-project and consortium, existing of 13 industry leaders, spread all over Europe, offer a unique example of the possibilities the new digital manufacturing set up for Dental Implants. Using additive manufacturing, allowing for on-demand and on-location production of certified and quality assured implants, the Dental industry will see new value chains arising. To make utmost use of these possibilities, the ManSYS consortium developed an online platform, through which part designs can be evaluated and optimized, parts can be ordered and quality can be guaranteed.

Mostafa EzEldeen, KU Leuven, Presents: “3D Planning for Tooth Autotransplantation and 3D Printing of Surgical Templates”

Loss of permanent teeth is a particular challenge in children considering that alveolar bone growth is not yet complete and treatment approaches should adapt to the developmental changes in the oral region to have the potential for long-term survival. This could be realized via autotransplantation, which is a biological approach for tooth replacement in young children. This presentation will introduce the use of a CBCT-based surgical planning and transfer technique including a stereolithographic surgical guide and tooth replica to enhance the outcome of autotransplantation procedures. Continue reading “Mostafa EzEldeen, KU Leuven, Presents: “3D Planning for Tooth Autotransplantation and 3D Printing of Surgical Templates””

“Challenges of 3D printed drill guides in dental implantology”, Presented by Daan Brons, 3D InnovationLab

3D printed drill guides are commonly used in dental implantology in a surgical environment. The process of fabricating those drill guides consists of the following general steps: 1) imaging, 2) processing, 3) printing. These processes are a source of problems. I propose an alternative to the heavily automated current methods. Continue reading ““Challenges of 3D printed drill guides in dental implantology”, Presented by Daan Brons, 3D InnovationLab”
