3D printing in dentistry is revolutionizing how dental restorations are made. At Kremer Dental Care, we always stay up to date with state-of-the-art technology. We want to use the latest dentistry tech to continue providing our guests with top-quality care.
We now have the SprintRay Pro55 S 3D Printer at our Glenbrook Court location, and we are thrilled. The SprintRay allows us to create dental restorations for a wide range of treatments, which makes a faster, more efficient workflow.
But you might be wondering what 3D printing is. Let's take a look.
What is 3D printing?
3D printing is the manufacturing of solid, three-dimensional objects from a computer-generated design. During the process, layers of material are built on top of each other to create the object.
3D printing in dentistry features printers that use a light or laser that polymerize material with computer-guided technology.
In dentistry, 3D printers create a variety of dental appliances such as aligners, night guards, dental prosthetics, crowns, veneers, dentures, and more.
Here's how the process works:
- First, we take a 3D digital impression (photograph) of your teeth using our iTero Element intraoral scanner.
- Next, we import the 3D image into the design software and design.
- After we finish the design, it's time to print!
- Once everything is printed, we wash, dry, and cure all parts.
Why this is great for everyone at Kremer Dental Care
3D printing in dentistry is genuinely changing the way practices produce results. As a company, the SprintRay Pro55 S benefits you in many ways, including more precise results and faster production times. What used to take months to provide can now be produced in hours or minutes!
By using digital workflows, we can cater to our guests' needs even better. Each product created by the 3D printer is tailored exactly to our patients' needs and is precisely detailed.
Many parts needed for treatment can be made in-house. These parts can also be manufactured quickly, sometimes on the same day. This means we can provide same-day crowns and other treatments for guests.
We take pride in our work and providing the best care to our guests using the greatest and latest technology!
