The world of 3D printing is taking over the dentist industry by a storm and is looking to accommodate and reduce the work of doctors by providing easier solutions.
Current Applications of 3D Printing in Dental Industry
3D printing in the dental industry has helped doctors in many ways. Doctors are using 3D printing to teach their students on a more practical basis by using 3D printed models. This is helping the students to understand the practice and procedures better and faster.
3D printing helps to develop the digital files in solid objects so that their designers can get an up-close and personal look which would help them in developing their work in a better fashion.

Use of 3D Printers by Dentists
- They are able to create very accurate designs and models to replicate their old models and make them better.
- It has helped them to be consistent in their practices and make their patients understand the problem in a better manner.
- It has also helped them reduce labor cost and time as the 3D printer has made their work faster and cheaper.
- They are also able to carry out more research and development in the dental industry and come up with better and faster ways for surgery or for solving day to day dental problems.
This market is quite a niche in the dental industry and will take time to make its way. Some dentists who are already using this technology find that their work has been reduced drastically and they are able to achieve accurate molds using 3D printing and designing them on the computer.
