With the improvement of people's economic life, cultural consumption level and awareness of oral health, the development of stomatology hospitals and stomatology departments has been significantly improved in recent years. The investment in equipment and manpower has increased, coupled with some past misunderstandings about oral care and treatment, the number of patients with oral problems has increased in recent years. The demand for dental medical technology services is also increasing rapidly. And the application of 3D printing in the oral cavity is also constantly breaking through. The deepening of these applications can realize personalized customization and optimize the medical
Let's talk briefly about several aspects of 3D printing in oral medical applications.
1. Surgical guide
The digital 3D printing guide template for oral implant surgery, also known as 3D printed implant surgical guide, referred to as "guide", is a personalized surgical auxiliary tool that accurately transfers the pre-operatively designed implant plan to the patient's mouth.
It can help clinicians to accurately control the position, direction, angle and even depth of implant implantation during surgery, assist the doctor's implant implantation, unify the final implant restoration with the ideal pre-operative design plan, and effectively reduce surgery Risk, shorten treatment time.
2. Overmolding of crowns and brackets
The application of dental crowns and stent casting in dentistry is also common, but the traditional process often produces a denture or dental crown that needs to go through the process of taking molds, turning molds, and making, which takes a long time and requires high requirements for the master. It may also need to be adjusted continuously by the patient's try-on, the treatment process is relatively long.
Now through digital scanning, combined with 3D printing technology, die casting and even direct metal printing, it can effectively reduce errors, shorten production time and avoid manual errors.
3. Application of oral aesthetics
With the improvement of oral treatment technology and the public's emphasis on oral cavity, oral aesthetics treatment is becoming more and more important in oral medicine. Therefore, the application of 3D printing in the field of orthodontics has also received more and more attention.
For example, 3D printed figures can now be seen in treatments such as dental veneers and invisible braces. Through all-digital medical treatment, using intraoral scanning and facial scanning data instead of model collection and photo collection steps, a more comprehensive and refined treatment plan can be formulated more accurately according to the patient's situation, and the model is printed directly through the 3D printer, avoiding the traditional method of error.
Flash casting has always been committed to the application of 3D printing in the field of dentistry and has continued to deepen. For this reason, it has launched a complete set of digital solutions in the dental field: 3D printer Hunter + multiple consumables + professional slicing software. Guide plates, crown bridge overmolding, etc., can effectively shorten the production time and complete personalized customization.
It is hoped that for future dental applications, 3D printing materials will be more abundant, and the equipment can better meet the needs of clinics and laboratories, so that digital medicine can promote the development of dental treatment.
