“Clinical aspects of Rapid Prototyping technologies”– Presented by Ehsan Farjood, School of dentistry, HUMS, Bandarabbas, Iran at the 3D Dental Printing Conference, which takes place on Jan 31, 2017 at MECC Maastricht in The Netherlands.
Evolving Rapid Prototyping (RP) technologies in dentistry offer new opportunities for treatments that could not have been imagined few years ago; from a simple surgical guide to a complex maxillofacial prosthesis. However, every new emerging technology brings with it new challenges that should be explored and understood especially in a clinical environment. Like every other technique, Rapid Prototyping has advantages and disadvantages. In this lecture, usage of RP techniques in dental clinics is discussed and its pros and cons are presented. Additionally, a clinical comparison between reductive (milling) and additive (RP) will be presented.
