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.
British scientists have developed a new use for 3D printing, putting it to work to create personalized replica models of cancerous parts of the body to allow doctors to target tumors more precisely. Continue reading “3D printing points way to smarter cancer treatment”
