Applications for 3D printing continue to expand. From nightguards and bonding trays to permanent crowns and denture teeth, 3D printers are changing the way dental practices deliver care by making essential items accessible, affordable, and, most especially, on the spot.
Mike Skramstad, DDS, shares how Primeprint fits within his existing digital workflow to produce a 3D-printed wax-up and Primeprint Model resin to show the patient what the finished procedure would look like while also creating guides, temporaries and a Biocopy for final restorations.
Modern 3D printers open up a broad range of new dental treatment options. And with advances in digital light processing, open materials and improvements to both print speed and quality, 3D printing is seen by many as the future of digital dentistry.
