What is a 3D Dental Printer?
A dental 3D printer is a technological device specifically designed to produce dental prosthetics and restorations using Computer-Aided Design (CAD) software. With high precision and accuracy, these printers can manufacture a wide range of dental products, such as crowns, bridges, implants, and dentures. Creating dental prosthetics using 3D printing technology involves layer-by-layer deposition of a material, usually a resin, onto a build platform according to specified digital design instructions.
How Our Technology Benefits Our Patients
3D printing technology provides our patients with superior comfort and accuracy when creating dental models or impressions. We have found that this process reduces the amount of time needed in the office and the amount of discomfort our patients may experience when using traditional impression materials.
This technique is beneficial as it eliminates the need for traditional manual methods of casting and milling, which often lead to inconsistencies and errors. The produced dental prosthetics are also highly customizable and can be tailored to meet each patient’s individual needs. Moreover, dental 3D printing technology has streamlined and expedited the process of creating dental prosthetics, thus providing patients with quicker, more convenient, and more efficient dental services.
Our 3D-Printed Services
At Westport Dental P.C., we pride ourselves on offering modern dental care options to our patients. Our patients deserve the best, which is why we are always looking for new and innovative ways to improve the dental experience for our patients. One of the ways we achieve this is by using 3D printing technology to create dental models and prosthetics.
3D-Printed Fabricated Study Models
Westport Dental P.C. uses 3D printing technology to create fabricated study models. These models provide us with an accurate representation of the patient’s teeth, gums, and jaw. By making these models with 3D printing technology, we can ensure a precise fit and better results. This technology allows us to create detailed models quickly and at a lower cost than traditional methods.
3D-Printed Implant Surgical Guides
We use 3D printing technology to create surgical implant guides for patients who require dental implants. These guides are custom-designed for each patient and created using a 3D printer. The guides are then used during implant surgery to ensure precise implant placement. 3D-printed implant surgical guides make the procedure less invasive, less painful, and more efficient.
3D-Printed Temporary Restorations
When a patient requires a temporary restoration, we use 3D printing technology to create a custom-fit temporary solution. Temporary restorations are critical when patients wait for their permanent restoration to be created. Using 3D printing technology, we can customize the temporary restoration to fit the patient’s mouth precisely. This results in a more comfortable and effective interim solution.
3D-Printed Occlusal Guards
We also use 3D printing technology to create occlusal guards for patients who grind their teeth. Occlusal guards protect the teeth and mouth from the damage caused by grinding or clenching. By making these guards using 3D printing technology, we can ensure they fit perfectly for each patient, resulting in maximum protection and comfort.
