3D Printing in Everyday Dental Practice

3D Printing in Everyday Dental Practice | Dental Manufacturing | Scoop.it

Advances in dental technology continue to improve patient comfort, shorten treatment times, and improve the efficiency and accuracy of the restorative process. The messy, unpleasant experience associated with taking impressions is no longer a given. Today, intraoral scanners can take a full spectrum of digital impressions ranging from single unit cases, to multiunit restoration to full arch scans to implants. In 2005, after searching for a solution to eliminate the “goo” and mess of impression taking, I was the first dentist to fully integrate iTero digital scanning into everyday dental practice. The “digital” impressions captured by intraoral scanners have been used for years to create the models used by dental labs but producing models to support traditional laboratory processes does not fully leverage the possibilities of digital dental impressions. Creating restorations completely without physical models was a next logical step. The principle was simple enough, but producing the full range of restorations without a physical model, required a dental laboratory partner adept at spatial data processing, CAD/CAM additive manufacturing (AM) and design verification. Advances with in-house milling technology now allow intraoral digital scan data to be sent directly to my CAD software, and design a crown in minutes. The digital data in STL format is then sent to a milling unit capable of milling lithium silicate, lithium di-silicate and even pre-sintered zirconia. The milling times are now reduced such that we are able to produce a crown in an hour, from prep start to design to mill to final delivery. FIGURE 8 (1).PNG AM is a key component of the digital restorative process. It provides a bridge between the physical and the digital representation of patient data. Once the digital impression has been taken, it can be used anywhere in the restorative process in a variety of applications, such as production of surgical guides, investment patterns, try-in prostheses, temporary/provisional prostheses, denture moulds, and laboratory working models. 3D printed models have many applications in dentistry particularly in the world of thermoplastic appliances made via vacuum forming or direct press down of heated thermoformed materials such as bleaching trays, retainers, athletic mouth guards, orthodontic appliances and so on. These appliances were made in the past on gypsum models that were very fragile, only single use and inaccurate. We have left the ”Stone Ages” of gypsum for highly accurate, virtually unbreakable, multiple-use, 3D printed models. Some four years ago I began using a Stratasys Objet 30 printer in my office for everyday modelling using MED 690 polymer and MED 610, an FDA approved material to manufacture surgical guides. The world of surgical guides has undergone tremendous advances. Our surgical guide workflow is as follows: We take a Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) using Mobile Imaging Solutions, a service I developed that provides onsite imaging using the latest lowest radiation dose mobile system to produce the DICOM data that will be file merged with highly accurate STL files from an iTero Element intraoral scan. That data is merged using 3shape Implant Studio 2016 software. This creates a virtual planning platform to design the location of the implant restorations as well as precise location of the implant in bone. Further, we can design the immediate screw retained pre-made provisional restoration that will be placed at FIGURE 6 (1).jpg the time of implant placement with the surgical guide. AM is used to produce the highly accurate surgical guide in a 100% digital workflow. AM extends into everyday dentistry with orthodontics where mass customisation allows products such as Invisalign to manufacture aligners. We are now able to replicate the process in our office. Tooth movement can be easily performed virtually using in-house software to segment a series of stages, STL files are used to 3D print a physical model of each stage and on this physical model a thermoplastic appliance is created. These sequential clear plastic aligners are then used to create precise tooth movements. The future is bright for AM in everyday dentistry. The efficiencies and improved dental care afforded by technological advancements can only continue to improve the speed and quality of dental treatment. 3D printing enabled by intraoral digital scanning is the next paradigm shift, offering dentists, the opportunity to move beyond traditional methods into a new world of digital dentistry.

Additive manufacturing: Reshaping 3D printing healthcare

Additive manufacturing: Reshaping 3D printing healthcare | Dental Manufacturing | Scoop.it

As the manufacturing industry continues to expand, the creation of prototypes as a means to illustrate potential product design is slowly gaining prominence. Additive manufacturing is the technology that helps create physical copies of these designs to illustrate them better. Not only this, the evolution of this technology also allows for printing to move beyond prototypes and produce the final products too. This form of manufacturing involves utilising 3D digital data to construct a component in the form of successive layers. The materials used in additive manufacturing can range from metal to plastic, providing the process with the flexibility required to be an essential component of the contemporary manufacturing space. Among the many spaces that this technology has come to influence, healthcare represents one of the top sectors of interest especially for its evolution from standardised equipment to components that are customised to patient-specific needs. Medical procedures today have evolved to become highly specialised, leading to the need for equipment that can perform the same. In such a situation, the components used in these procedures become one-off, unique requirements that traditional modes of equipment manufacture may not be able to cater to due to the excessive cost of production for limited profits. Additive manufacturing fills this gap by providing the healthcare industry with customised surgical instruments and medical devices using faster, more flexible and more cost-effective development and production methods. Some of the areas where additive manufacturing has made the greatest strides are: Dental Products In the dental industry, the use of additive manufacturing to create copings and dental bridges is very common. Labs today scan the impressions taken from the patients. Based on this data, the copings can be manufactured using the appropriate metal to fit comfortably within the dental gaps created by missing teeth. This technology also allows for the accurate design and production of partial dentures as well, thereby eliminating any errors that may occur during the casting process due to irregularities in the moulds used. The digitisation of dental labs across the world is the biggest driver of this technology to be used effectively for all dental related concerns across the country.

Global Dental 3D Scanners Market Assessment & Forecast: 2016 - 2020

LONDON, Jan. 31, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The Asia-Pacific Dental 3D Scanners market is forecast to grow at a CAGR of 8.2% from 2016 to 2020 and in 2015 was valued at US$ 102.2 million, according to the new report "Global Dental 3D Scanners Market Assessment & Forecast 2016 - 2020." by SA-Business Research & Consulting Group. The Asian market is brimming with innovation potential with players such as Medit Corporation, Shining 3D Tech Co., Ltd and DOF Inc strongly competing against large North American and European players. Computer aided design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM) in dentistry has been around for more than two decades. The early endeavors for employing CAD/CAM in dentistry were time consuming and cumbersome and produced rudimentary results. The major challenges faced were technological limitations and the lack of high definition 3D capturing systems. As technology improved, the CAD/CAM systems began to find a place labside with varying degree of acceptance among dentists. It is only in recent years that 3D scanning and 3D printing are becoming profitable for dentists since they drastically reduce the number of steps and time consumed in preparing an implant for a patient. The 3D scanners are devices that use laser or structured light source to scan an object from multiple axes and reproduce the image on a computer system. Together, this system is also known as computer aided design (CAD) and computer aided manufacturing (CAM). Conventional systems were expensive, large and cumbersome for dentists to operate while managing patients as well. However, with further advancement of technology both in terms of hardware and software, miniaturization of devices, improvement in the level of imaging resolution will provide clearer images to dentists. This will help dentists and patients to decide on the best route of treatment and increase comfort. With companies such as 3M ESPE now offering low cost intraoral 3D scanners and Asian players such as Medit and Shining 3D tech anticipated to enter the intraoral market, this segment is poised to embark on a dynamic and competitive phase. The report covers six geographical regions of North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, Middle-East and Africa. It also covers over 40 key vendors in the space of four device types; intraoral 3D scanners, desktop or laboratory 3D scanners, hand held 3D scanners and cone beam CT 3D scanners.
