Digital technologies are improving the practice of dentistry. One area where digital dentistry has a significant impact is in the use of 3D printing for creating dental prostheses and other dental devices.
3D printing creates highly detailed and accurate dental models, which can be used to make dental crowns, bridges, dentures, and other dental appliances. This technology also allows custom dental implants tailored to fit a patient’s unique dental anatomy.
In expansion to 3D printing, new materials are also being developed for digital dentistry. For example, researchers are exploring the use of biocompatible resins and ceramics that can be 3D printed to create dental prostheses that are durable and long-lasting.
And lastly, advancements in printer platforms are making it easier for dental professionals to incorporate 3D printing into their practices. Modern printer platforms are more affordable and easier to use. They offer a more comprehensive range of features and capabilities than ever, making it possible for even small dental practices to take advantage of this technology.
