Today, 50 million dentures are produced globally each year, but only 1 percent are produced using digital tools. Traditional denture manufacturing is a complex craft with a steep learning curve, and dental labs increasingly struggle to find technicians with the advanced skills and expertise required to produce them.
Formlabs Digital Dentures allow dental laboratories to grow or expand production with an efficient, cost-effective 3D printed denture solution. Class II long-term biocompatible Denture Base Resin and Denture Teeth Resin enable dental professionals to produce 3D printed full dentures accurately and reliably, every time.
Although the manufacturing process to create a digital denture is different from the traditional workflow, the chairside process is very similar. This application guide details the critical considerations and steps for going from digitized patient model to 3D printed full denture on Formlabs desktop stereolithography 3D printers.
1. Scan and design
Digital denture design software requires a digitized model or impression of the patient’s oral anatomy in order to design the removable prosthetic.
