3D printing is an efficient manufacturing process that can produce complex shapes with high reproducibility and offers consistent and repeatable part quality, which is essential for dental applications.
Dental 3D printing is being used for the production of dental implants, prosthetics, crowns, and bridges. Implants are becoming increasingly popular because they offer patients a more accurate and biocompatible fit. Prosthetics are also becoming more popular because they offer superior fit and function compared to traditional dentures. Crowns and bridges offer patients a more natural-looking smile by replicating the patient’s original teeth.
3D printing is changing the way the dental industry provides care to patients by offering more accurate and efficient solutions for dental laboratories and manufacturing service providers.
3D Printing for Dental Laboratories
The 2Create dental 3D printer offers dental laboratories all the benefits and possibilities of additive manufacturing. Additive manufacturing enables orthodontic applications such as orthodontic casts, occlusal or night splints, retainers and indirect bonding splints to be produced quickly, accurately and affordably.
The 2Create is also ideal for research and teaching applications, as it comes with a number of powerful features that make it easy to create new parameters sets.
Overall, it is a versatile and powerful dental 3D printer that is perfect for a variety of applications.
Easy to use
In addition, the printer is simple to operate and comes with all the necessary software and hardware for dental laboratories to start using additive manufacturing.
With the 2CREATE Dental 3D Printer, dental laboratories can increase productivity, reduce costs and improve patient care. Complex shapes are manufactured in a matter of minutes or hours, whereas traditional methods take days or even weeks.
With a layer thickness of 0.1mm to 0.4mm, the 2Create Dental 3D printer is capable of printing dental models, appliances and prosthetics with fine details and high accuracy. The printer uses a unique Peek material that is strong, flexible and biocompatible, making it ideal for dental applications.
Dental 3D Printing for Orthodontics
3D dental printers have the best chances in the orthodontic industry by providing a faster and more accurate way to create custom dental appliances.
In the past, dental appliances were created using manual methods that were time-consuming and often resulted in inaccurate fittings. 3D Dental printers use state-of-the-art technology to create appliance models that are far more precise than those created with traditional methods. This not only saves time, but it also results in a better fit for the patient. 3D Dental Printers are also able to create multiple copies of an appliance, which is essential for mass production.
Thanks to 3D printing technology, orthodontists are able to create braces, retainers, and other dental devices that are perfectly fitted to each patient’s mouth. This not only results in a more comfortable experience for the patient, but it also decreases the overall treatment time.
3D Printing Solution for the Dental Industry
Metal 3D printing is pioneering the dental industry due to its many benefits and applications. The metal 3D printer offers improved accuracy, speed, cost savings and shorter lead times, which provides a more efficient and cost-effective way to produce dental prosthetics.
Metal 3D printing is particularly beneficial for creating removable partial dentures (RPDs), partial denture frameworks, metal dental bridges, metal tooth bridges and metal PFM crowns.
The use of metal 3D printers in the dental industry also has implications for the quality of care given to patients. By using digital models and computer-aided design (CAD) software that are integrated with metal 3D printers, you can create more precise designs that are tailored to each individual patient’s needs.
Metal 3D Printer based on Powder Bed Fusion-Laser Beam (PBF-LB)
Powder Bed Fusion – Laser Beam (PBF-LB) is a metal 3D printing technology that has become increasingly popular in the dental industry. It is an effective and cost efficient way to Rapid Prototyping with complex geometries out of various alloys. This industrial metal 3D printing technology offers superior precision, accuracy and quality results while also reducing production time and costs.
Metal 3D Printers with PBF-LB are drastically improving the production process of creating dental prostheses, making it easier and faster manufacturing precise components with intricate details. This allows faster turnaround times while also delivering superior quality products at an affordable price point.
In addition to its superior precision Powder Bed Fusion – Laser Beam (PBF-LB) offers complete freedom when it comes to selecting metal powders from any supplier without compromising quality or performance.
With minimal post-processing required you are able to save even more time while still creating highly detailed components that meet strict product requirements.
