3D-printing approaches to denture base fabrication and dental education

The use of additive manufacturing (AM) is increasingly growing in Dentistry due to the new opportunities these techniques can offer; these include custom-design, waste materials reduction, incorporation of internal structure and scaling-up possibilities, among others.

Fused deposition modelling (FDM) and stereolithography (SLA) are two of the most used AM techniques in the dental field. Each technique offers its own advantages, for example, FDM is a very cost-effective manufacturing method and SLA allows very high resolution.

3D printing for Cone Beam Computed Tomography-guided Tooth Autotransplantation

mostafa ezeldeen

In this presentation we will go through the process of (Cone Beam Computed Tomography) CBCT-guided tooth autotransplantation starting from image pre-operative process up to post-operative follow-up and long-term outcome. Special attention will be given for the state of art 3D planning based on AI and the specific requirements of tooth replica 3D printing linking this to the treatment outcomes.

3D Printing in Dentistry: Fad or Fundamental?

3D printing and additive manufacturing has many advantages over conventional workflows in dentistry. These include accuracy, efficiency, cost-savings, customization and potentially a more sustainable approach. Yet the adoption of 3D printing has met some hesitancy. This presentation will review 3D printing and present some traditional and experimental workflows with plastics, metals and zirconia. This will equip the clinician or technician to decide if 3D printing is a suitable workflow to explore.

3D Printing applications in Cranio-Maxillofacial surgery

Jules Poukens Maxillofacial

Deformities and defects in cranio-maxillofacial surgery very often demand for a patient specific solution. Custom made maxillo-facial implants and prosthesis can be manufactured by 3D printing and are tailored to the patient. The use of custom surgical guides and implants in cranio-maxillofacial surgery is widespread and can be regarded as state of the art treatment. Clinical applications will be highlighted.

Innovative applications with dental additive manufacturing


a presentation by Les Kalman, Assistant Professor, Restorative Dentistry,; Academic Lead, CDE.

Additive manufacturing has experienced a surge in popularity in dentistry, but has been mainly limited to plastics for guides, aligners and dentures. AM with metal and ceramic is still in its infancy, but the workflow has significant advantages over conventional approaches.
