3D printing solutions for Digital dentistry
Posted By sculpteo on Mar 28, 2011 |Objet Geometries demonstrated the benefits of adding 3D printing to the workflow at the International Dental Show 2011 (Cologne, Germany) with its Eden 260 V 3D printer
“The adoption of digital technology is happening rapidly in the dental industry and we see 3D printing as a key part of this workflow trend. The benefits of a process that integrates oral scanning with digital design and digital printing over traditional methods are clear,” asserts Avi Cohen Head of Medical Solutions at Objet.
“Production times are significantly reduced and bottlenecks are a thing of the past as multiple, unique parts are built in single print runs”.
By combining oral scanning, CAD/CAM design and 3D printing, dental labs can accurately and rapidly produce crowns, bridges, stone models, and a range of orthodontic appliances for dental offices.
With a 3D printer doing the hard work, dental labs can eliminate the bottleneck of manual modeling and allow the business to expand and grow.
For those who have predicted the day when everything from scheduling to finished restoration can be handled digitally and automatically, that day has arrived.
