LONDON, June 16, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- 3D tooth printing is an emerging trend in the dental services industry. 3D printing is the process of making three-dimensional solid objects from a digital model. 3D printers enable a replacement tooth to be created with an exacting and natural looking standard. 3D printing makes it possible to accelerate the manufacturing process of dentures. Using CAD/CAM technology (or computer-aided design and manufacturing), a dentist can measure a patient's mouth once, and quickly design and print a set of teeth in just two or three visits. Individual teeth can be 3D printed, too. A dentist can scan the shape and size of a patient's natural tooth and print an exact copy from materials such as titanium and zirconia. This provides a completely customized alternative to traditional dental implants. This technology is already in use in the European Union, and is pending FDA (Food and Drug Administration) approval in the USA. Portions of teeth or corrective pieces, such as crowns, can also be custom printed. In 2015, 3D printing company Stratasys unveiled a high-end dental 3D printer, called the Objet260 Dental Selection, capable of printing out realistic teeth, gums, and nerves, in order to create lifelike models for dental specialists. The dental and medical market for 3D printers is expected to expand by 365% to $867 million by 2025, supporting the demand for 3D tooth printing.

3D Dental Imaging Technology
Cosmetic dental services providers are increasingly using 3D dental imaging technologies to improve dental procedure efficiencies. To get the three-dimensional information needed for 3D dental imaging, dentists employ cone beam computed tomography machines, also known as CBCTs. CBCTs provide a 3D rendition of patient's mouths, compared to the 2D view offered by traditional X-rays or medical CT scan technology. 3D digital imaging is more efficient, more precise, and more in-depth than traditional methods. CBCT technology is capable of determining the correct placement for dental implants, measuring the jaw, and figuring out how to fix under- or overbites, and getting a patient ready for reconstructive surgery. CBCT scanners limit the radiation to only the area of interest, thus reducing the patient's exposure to radiation.
The number of dental practices using CBCT units in North America and Europe is experiencing a steady rise as more people discover the benefits of CBCT technology. This growth is only hindered by the cost of implementing the system. Along with this steady growth of implementation, professionals around the world are in the process of developing new standards and applications for this technology. Currently, worldwide dentistry organizations are developing standards of practice for using CBCT units safely, while others are theorizing potential new uses for the technology in science and medical research.
