Dental 3D printing is a type of additive manufacturing (AM), or 3D printing, that creates physical items from a digital file. The digital file is created by using 3D scanning to take measurements around a patient’s teeth and mouth. The digital file is then sent to a dental 3D printer, which puts together layers of material into the shape of the digital file. This creates a physical dental device, such as a dental crown, dental bridge, or dental veneer.
3D printing is the process by which a 3-dimensional object is created from a digital file. The process starts when a digital file is sent to the 3D printer. The file tells the printer how to move its print head and build the 3-dimensional object. Once the object is fully formed, the printer will stop printing.
Its benefits include:
Compared to traditional manufacturing methods, 3D printing is very safe. A 3D printed object is manufactured layer by layer, rather than melting it down and reshaping it. This makes 3D printing technology a more accurate and safer way to create dental products and tools.
