One of the most immediate emerging trends is the use of 3D printing in the field of medicine and dentistry. 3D printing technology has the potential to be very beneficial to patients and doctors in terms of patient-specific individualized management. These inventive advances have been gradually advancing into medicinal gadgets, cutting down expenses in the social insurance industry and making it less demanding for patients to oversee interminable conditions. Dental research centers can create crowns, bridges, stone models, implants and different surgical, endodontic and orthodontic appliances by strategies that combine oral scanning, 3D printing, and CAD/CAM design. Current 3D printing has been utilized for the advancement of models for quite a while, and it has started to discover its utilization in the realm of manufacturing. This review is focussed around the advances in Additive Manufacturing and its developing applications in the field of Dentistry.

Abstract


One of the most immediate emerging trends is the use of 3D printing in the field of medicine and dentistry. 3D printing technology has the potential to be very beneficial to patients and doctors in terms of patient-specific individualized management. These inventive advances have been gradually advancing into medicinal gadgets, cutting down expenses in the social insurance industry and making it less demanding for patients to oversee interminable conditions. Dental research centers can create crowns, bridges, stone models, implants and different surgical, endodontic and orthodontic appliances by strategies that combine oral scanning, 3D printing, and CAD/CAM design. Current 3D printing has been utilized for the advancement of models for quite a while, and it has started to discover its utilization in the realm of manufacturing. This review is focussed around the advances in Additive Manufacturing and its developing applications in the field of Dentistry.
