3D printing is revolutionizing the medical and healthcare sector with its versatility. The technology has completely changed the way we look into any medical problem and its treatment. For years, personalized medicine and implants were difficult to design, but with this 3D printing technology, physicians can use patient-specific data to capture, manipulate and ultimately apply physical solutions of all shapes and sizes. The two major fields of medical science where 3D printers are gaining immense popularity are dental and surgery that involves complications and risks.
Increase and improve your dental labâ€™s accuracy, productivity and capacity with 3D printers. It can be combined with oral scanning and CAD/CAM design to accurately and rapidly produce a wide range of orthodontic appliances.
Advantage 3D printer offer in dental treatment:-
It enables the dental and orthodontic labs to speed up their production while improving quality and precision
The technology allows you to accurately and rapidly produce bridges, crowns, stone models and a range of orthodontic appliances right on your desktop
It is easy to use, and includes specialized dental printing materials
With a 3D printer in your model work, you can remarkably reduce the time of fabrication and increase the output
Empowers dental labs to build surgical guides, veneer models, delivery and positioning trays, and models in-house
In today's operating rooms, 3D- printed applications are gaining their credibility remarkably. In some years, the surgical guides produced from 3D printers will be the standard procedure for a variety of operations, including jaw surgery, heart surgery, hip replacements, knee replacements, cranial implants, shoulder operations, spinal procedures and many others.
Advantage 3D printer offer in surgical operations::-
Enables surgeons to use patient-specific data to manipulate, capture and ultimately apply physical solutions of all shapes and sizes
Simple and quick to manufacture unique parts for patients
With the use of 3D-printed surgical models and tools, there can be seen a remarkable reduction in the operating time, risks from errors or complications
Before starting the surgery, surgeons can actually plan complex procedures using CT scan data of a patient's bones, blood vessels or other organs that is converted into a 3D-printable digital file
For operations involving cutting or drilling into skeletal structures such as knee replacements, jaw surgeries and joint-related procedures, 3D printers are very useful as they create the perfect fit using printed custom guides and tools
The 3D printing technology helps to create temporary tools that are affixed to the patientâ€™s skeletal structure in order to provide a precise blueprint for ensuring perfect reshaping of bone structure and to accurately accommodate standard-size implants
In cardiovascular surgeries, the technology allows you to visualize heart diseases using a virtual or physical 3D model, quantify the aortic root anatomy and its calcifications, investigate all possible access roots for transcatheteraortic valve intervention (TAVI) and simulate virtually or physically, the post-operative situation
