3D Printing Enables Digital Dentistry and Custom Dental Devices : The Cool Parts Show S2E4

Dental devices have always been custom-made to fit the patient, but 3D printing is now disrupting how they are produced. Instead of a manual, analog process based on impressions and sculpted wax, new technologies are enabling a digital dentistry workflow. Patients can now have a device 3D printed to exactly the size and shape of their mouths based on 3D data captured with an intraoral scan.

In this episode of The Cool Parts Show, we visit Spectrum Dental Printing to learn how this lab is able to 3D print occlusal mouth guards faster and more repeatably than they could be made traditionally. Watch the episode to see the process and witness one of our intrepid hosts braving the dentist’s chair.
