Dental 3D printing dentistry is gaining massive popularity owing to its combination of a state-of-art 3D printing technology with a potential footprint. 3D printing is an advanced technology widely used in dentistry to create drill guides for dental implants, orthodontics, and surgery, manufacture dental implants, and produce physical models for prosthodontics and orthodontics surgery. The design and development of advanced products such as invisible aligners, advanced fabrication to provide an aesthetic look, and delivery positioning are some factors increasing the demand and adoption of dental 3D printers. Various technologies are used for 3D dental printing, including VAT photo-polymerization, poly jet technology, fused deposition modeling, and selective laser sintering. The user-friendliness and ease of 3D printing procedures have promoted the dentistry industry to print products that meet different individuals' dental requirements. The increasing number of dental problems is raising dental professionals' usage of 3D-based dental equipment, such as implants and drills. As per the World Health Organization (WHO)’s Global Oral Health Status Report 2022, oral diseases affect nearly 3.5 billion people worldwide, with 3 out of every 4 living in middle-income countries. Globally, an estimated 2 billion people suffer from caries of permanent teeth, and 514 million children suffer from primary teeth caries. The high cost of dental 3D printing is hampering the market's growth. However, integrating advanced technologies and introducing innovative dental 3D equipment is expected to expand the scope of dental 3D printing.

Type: Better affordability of desktop 3D printers leading to higher utilization

Desktop 3-dimensional printers are smaller and more affordable 3D printers used in smaller dental clinics or labs. Desktop 3D printers use fused deposition modeling (FDM) and stereolithography (SLA) technologies to create dental models and objects. Industrial 3-dimensional printers are larger and are used in larger dental labs or production facilities. Industrial 3D printers typically use powder bed fusion (PBF), binder jetting (BJ), or vat photopolymerization (VPP) technologies to create dental objects with higher precision and accuracy.

Product: Rapid advancements in 3D scanner and printers

Dental 3D printing's 3D scanner is used to generate a digital model of the patient's teeth or gums, which can then be used to design the dental appliance or restoration. The 3D printer is used to fabricate the actual appliance or restoration using the digital model. Metal 3D printing is typically used for creating permanent dental restorations, such as crowns, bridges, and implants. The most commonly used metals are titanium and cobalt-chrome. These materials are biocompatible and strong, making them ideal for dental restorations. Plastic 3D printing helps create dental models, surgical guides, and temporary dental restorations. Plastic 3D printing materials such as photopolymer resins are easy to work with and offer a high level of accuracy and detail.

Technology: Developments in selective laser sintering (SLS) to create accurate dental models

Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) technology of dental 3D printing uses a heated extruder to melt and deposit filament layer by layer to create the 3D object. Polyjet technology uses photopolymer materials to create 3D objects. Polyjet technology increasingly produces fine details and smooth surface finishes, making it ideal for creating dental models and surgical guides. Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) technology uses a high-powered laser to fuse powdered material into a 3D object selectively. VAT photo-polymerization technology uses a liquid resin to create the 3D object.

Application: Increasing adoption of dental 3D printing technology for prosthodontics

Dental 3D printing technologies deliver the broadest range of implantology applications for specified implantology workflows. The use of 3D printing technologies has given access to digital workflows using additive manufacturing for implantology applications, including surgical guides, models, and temporaries. The orthodontics sector utilizes 3D printed technologies to produce high-volume thermoforming tools for clear aligner manufacturing, orthodontic models, splints, retainers, indirect bonding trays, and conventional bracket placement jigs. The prosthodontics accessories, including full and partial dentures, custom trays, and try-ins, can be manufactured with advanced 3D printing technology. The 3D printing technology efficiently manufactures various accessories and materials required for orthodontics and prosthodontics, reducing material wastage and capital equipment expenditure.

Regional Insights

The dental 3D printing market in the Americas and European economies is rapidly developing owing to the high consumer expenditures on dental care and treatments, the rising prevalence of dental disorders, and the massive adoption of advanced technologies for dental treatments. According to the Platform for Better Oral Health in Europe, over 50% of the European population suffer from some form of periodontitis, and over 10% have severe dental disease, with prevalence increasing to 70%-85% of the population aged 60-65 years of age. Moreover, the rising government approvals by the regulatory authorities, including Health Canada, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (US FDA), and the European Medical Device Regulation (MDR), have elevated the availability of 3D printed solutions for dental care, encouraging the need for dental 3D printing in the region.

Advancements in Dental Technology: The Rise of 3D Printing
June 19, 2023
Advancements in Dental Technology: The Rise of 3D Printing
The dental industry, like any other medical field, has undergone significant technological advancements in recent years. One of the most significant developments is the rise of 3D printing technology. This advancement has transformed the dental industry by providing advanced and cost-effective solutions for dental implants, crowns, and orthodontic appliances. This article discusses how the proliferation in the adoption of rapid and accurate dental cosmetic solutions, along with advancing medical tourism for cosmetic dentistry, has driven 3D printing technology's growth in dentistry.

More Cost-Effective and Efficient Solutions:

Dental procedures have been largely manual, and as a result, patients have had to bear high costs. 3D printing technology has changed that by providing faster and more efficient solutions at a lower cost. For example, dental practices can scan a patient's mouth to create a customized dental implant or bridge using 3D printing technology in a matter of hours, saving costs and time.

Greater Accuracy and Precision:

Traditional dental implantation procedures often involve guesswork, and there is always the possibility of human error. With 3D printing technology, accuracy, and precision are significantly greater because digital imaging provides an accurate representation of a patient's mouth. This means dental practitioners can provide more customized solutions that perfectly match the patient's needs.

Better Cosmetic Results:

Aesthetic dentistry has become popular with people wanting a perfect smile, primarily driven by medical tourism. Cosmetic dentistry involves complex procedures requiring high precision and attention to detail. 3D printing technology has revolutionized aesthetics dentistry by providing more accurate and customized solutions.

Faster Treatment Time:

3D printing technology allows dental practitioners to complete certain procedures in a single visit, which was not possible before. For example, dental implants that would take several weeks to produce manually can be done in a single session, offering patients a much-improved experience.

Reduced Waste and Environmentally Friendly:

Unlike traditional dental procedures that generate a lot of waste, 3D printing technology generates minimal waste. The technology helps conserve natural resources, and less material usage means a darkened carbon footprint.

The significant advantages and potential of 3D printing technology have made it an essential tool in the modern dental industry. Advances made in 3D printing technology will likely revolutionize dentistry, offering patients more customized and effective solutions at a lower cost. The future of dental technology looks bright, and 3D printing will undoubtedly play an important role in transforming cosmetic and orthodontic dentistry.
