How are 3D printing & digital technology changing dentistry?

dentistry

3D printing & digital technology have been gaining grounds in the dental practice in the recent years. Additive technologies, such as DLP are widely used to build, starting from digital files, dental models in addition to orthodontic and prosthetic devices. 3D printed patient specific implants are used more and more in clinical cases. The start-up Lake3D wants to develop the first 3D Dental printer based on Multi Material 3D inkjet.

La tecnologia digitale sta cambiando l’ortodonzia?
Oggi molte procedure come l’acquisizione clinica e la successiva elaborazione dei dati avvengono con procedure digitali.
Le tecnologie additive come la stereolitografia sono regolarmente utilizzate per costruire,da files digitali, non solo modelli, ma anche vari dispositivi ortodontici e protesici.
Anche la costruzione dei dispositivi ortodontici in metallo sta subendo una grande trasformazione grazie all’introduzione del Laser Metal Fusion.
La presentazione farà vedere come poter applicare queste tecnologie nelle comuni lavorazioni ortodontiche e anche le nuove applicazioni nel campo dell’ancoraggio ortodontico scheletrico.
