3D Printing takes digital or impression renderings of your teeth and mouth to create a model that we can actually hold and work with when planning your treatment.
3D printing is a revolutionary way for us to better treat our patients. We use this printing to help create implant surgical guides so that treatment planning is easier and more effective. The printing takes digital or impression renderings of your teeth and mouth to create a model that we can actually hold and work with when planning your treatment. The process of making a 3D model of your teeth is easy, quick and highly effective when it comes to your dental care.
What is 3D Printing?
Why is 3D Printing needed?
The reason we may recommend 3D printing in our office is because you’re going to be having oral surgery done. For instance, having a 3D model of your teeth and mouth can help us in determining the best placement for implants or when performing a bone grafting. The rendering is realistic and detailed, so we are able to pinpoint the different ways to complete the surgical procedure.
What can be expected with 3D Printing?
The first step is to take impressions of your teeth and mouth. This is typically done digitally so that we have a clear view of your oral health on our computer screens. We then use a 3D printing machine to create a physical model of these impressions. We then use this model to help in treatment planning for surgical procedures. We will help to show you what to expect during oral surgery using this model as well. 3D printing is highly useful when it comes to improving the patient experience.
