Dental 3D Printing: Latest in Digital Dentistry
Dentistry seems to be the potential breakthrough industry to manifest many 3D printing enthusiasts’ dream of mass customization, point of care delivery, and local manufacturing hub for dental professionals, reducing inefficiency and costs. Over the past several years, 3DHEALS has invited many different stakeholders to share their experiences, ranging from material innovation, software development, to new clinical workflows. Applications ranging from surgical guides, implants, dentures, night guards are among the new applications gaining increasing attention either in the startup world or the industry at large, in addition to the existing billion dollar market of dental aligners. The collective thought is that 3D printing can do more and more in parallel to the maturation of technologies.
