With the development of 3D printing technology, the digital application of 3D printing in oral cavity is constantly breaking through.These applications further optimize the medical process, reduce the pain of patient diagnosis and treatment, and achieve personalized oral customization.So what specific models can be printed by 3D printing and applied to the digital oral diagnosis and treatment process?
1. Implant surgical guide plate
Digital 3D printing guide template for oral implant surgery is a personalized surgical assistant tool that accurately transfers the preoperative virtual implant plan to the patient’s mouth.It can help to accurately control the position, direction, Angle and even depth of implant implantation during surgery, assist the implant implantation of doctors, achieve the unification of the final implant repair and the ideal design plan before surgery, and effectively reduce the surgical risk and shorten the treatment time.
2.Wax type bracket
It is used for auxiliary fixation of the denture and keeps the support body for accurate installation of the denture.
3. Indirect adhesive disc
Used in traditional orthodontic applications to print trays with indirect bonding brackets.
4. Wax crown
Crowns used to assist dentists in preliminary estimation of therapeutic design.
5. Repair the model
A repair model printed with dental data from an oral scanner or other 3D scanner.
6. Denture base
Base for printing complete denture or partial removable denture.
7. Dental mold and temporary crown
For printing temporary crowns or Bridges.
8. Artificial gums
It is used for planting and repairing models to obtain accurate model data.
9. Invisible correction model
A model for orthodontics.
It can be seen from the above that 3D printing technology has various applications in the field of digital dentistry, which can basically meet the needs of doctors in the process of diagnosis and treatment.In fact, the application of digital dentistry has already begun to penetrate into stomatology.Especially abroad, the proportion of digital dentistry is higher in China.
In recent years, foreign companies specializing in digital dentistry set their sights on China.Famous companies such as Align Technology’s hidden beauty — invisible orthodontics, has been relatively popular in China.Different from traditional steel teeth, patients only need to wear a pair of transparent braces to gradually arrange the irregular teeth in order.And these braces are being implemented through a 3D printer.SprintRay is an American company specializing in digital dental services, providing a complete range of 3D digital solutions from printing equipment to technical support.Currently, guangdong Crescent Medical Technology Co., Ltd. is responsible for the equipment sales and service support in China.Crescent Medical is a domestic professional company engaged in digital dental industry, has reached cooperation with a number of dental clinics and hospitals, and will regularly hold digital dental salon and industry experts to share the latest applications and cases of 3D printing in dental.
In general, digital dental technology based on 3D printing has greatly improved the accuracy, aesthetics and treatment efficiency of the treatment process.At the same time, the difficulty and threshold of dental implants and other operations are reduced, reducing patients’ pain.
