Complexity without the hastle

The techniques utilised by dental practitioners are often at the cutting edge of technology thanks to the people’s need to feel and look good.  The unique nature of patients requirements brings inherent complexity but many of the outcomes require consistency to ensure accuracy. These needs make 3D printing the perfect fit and many dentists are already realising the benefits.

Cost saving innovation

The traditional techniques involved in dentistry can be highly skilled and many procedures require dexterity and time for models and guides to be made.  Thanks to the ability to translate digital files into bespoke models using additive techniques the dental industry is realising huge cost savings as well as innovation benefits.

Material expenses are irrelevant (around €0.50), the traditional model making process involves a lot of manual labour, which effects the model cost.
