There are several ways that 3D printing can be implemented in dentistry, including:
Night guards, mouth guards, aligners, and retainers. The primary benefits of 3D printing for aligners and guards are speed and accuracy.
Same day crowns. With 3D printing, creating crowns is much simpler, faster, and more cost-effective.
When it comes to treating a dental issue, it’s crucial to get things right the first time. By using 3D printers, dentists can create an accurate model of the patient’s mouth and ensure that the aligner, crown, or implant fits with precision.
We will thoroughly examine your teeth to determine if and when you might benefit from 3D printing. For our same-day crown patients, we can make the permanent restorations for you while you wait. If you’re an orthodontic patient in need of clear aligners, we’ll make them for you in the office without the need for a second appointment. 3D printing is one of the best ways to make your dental experience easier and more convenient than ever before.
Outstanding Clinical Results
By making the aforementioned products ourselves, our patients are able to start their treatment much faster—they often receive their custom-made aligners in just a day or two. And, for our patients currently using retainers, our printer even allows us to quickly repair or make new ones as needed, meaning patients never have to wait too long for a replacement.
