The application of 3D printing in dentistry
With the advancement of technological life, the digital technology of dental is rapidly rising. The digital dental industry, which takes 3D printing as an opportunity, has a revolutionary impact on traditional product replacement and new product development.
According to a report released by market research firm MR, the global dental 3D printing market is worth about $1 billion and expected to reach about $3.4 billion by the end of 2025, with a growth rate of about 17%. 3D printing dentistry plays an important role because of its precision, accuracy and efficiency. More and more dentists use 3D printing technology for implants, such as dentures, bridges, and the customization of dental mold products, etc.
3 technologies are mainly used in dental 3D printing applications nowadays: SLA, DLP and LCD. SLA equipment has the highest cost, requires a professional operating environment, and has high maintenance costs, which is suitable for mass production of orthodontic models; DLP technology has high precision but is limited by its size. It is only suitable for printing small-sized repair models such as planting guides; LCD technology has low cost, and the printing can be both small and large sizes with high precision and fast forming speed. It has absolute advantages in small batch production
