3D printing at Dental Studio
What is 3D Printing?
3D printing uses computer-aided design (CAD) to create three-dimensional objects through a layering method. Sometimes referred to as additive manufacturing, 3D printing involves layering materials, like plastics, composites or bio-materials to create objects that range in shape, size, rigidity and color.
3D printing has developed significantly and can now perform crucial roles in many applications such as architecture, medicine, dentistry, custom art and design.
The technology has a particular resonance with dentistry, and with advances in oral and maxillofacial 3D imaging and modeling technologies, it is becoming of increasing importance.
In dentistry, 3D printing is used to accurately convert all the computer-assisted treatment simulations and CAD designs to physical shapes of the designed objects (surgical guides, crowns, simulation models, night guards, orthodontic models...).
A 3D printer specifically designed for the manufacturing of biocompatible materials is available at Dental Studio with all the 3D printing post-processing machines that are required to ensure an optimal biocompatibility and quality of the printed biomaterial.
