Metal 3D printing is pioneering the dental industry: providing dentists, laboratories and patients with beneficial applications.

2CREATE Metal 3D printer for the dental industry

Metal 3D printing is quickly becoming a preferred choice for fabrication within the dental industry today. It offers a multitude of potential applications that are sure to be explored further in the coming years as new technologies become available and more widespread within this field.

Furthermore, there are numerous other advantages that come along with utilizing metal 3D printing technology in the dental field. For example, because it is faster and more efficient than traditional fabrication methods, it can enable labs to reduce their production costs while still providing high-quality products.

Metal 3D printing in dental applications

Metal 3D printing is pioneering the dental industry due to its many benefits and applications. Metal 3D printing offers improved accuracy, speed, cost savings and shorter lead times compared to traditional metal fabrication methods, which provides dental labs with a more efficient and cost-effective way to produce dental prosthetics.

Metal 3D printing is particularly beneficial for creating removable partial dentures (RPDs), partial denture frameworks, metal dental bridges, metal tooth bridges and metal PFM crowns.

Improved accuracy for dental laboratories

Metal 3D printers enable dental laboratories to produce complex parts in much less time than traditional fabrication methods. The accuracy of metal 3D printers also allows for superior precision in the fit of the denture or bridge to the patient’s mouth. This can result in better comfort and aesthetics for patients with removable partial dentures, as well as increased structural strength for permanent restorations.

Quality of care

The use of metal 3D printing in the dental industry also has implications for the quality of care given to patients. By using digital models and computer-aided design (CAD) software that are integrated with metal 3D printers, dentists can now create more precise designs that are tailored to each individual patient’s needs. This ensures a higher level of accuracy in fabricating complex parts such as bridges or RPDs that fit precisely into a patient’s mouth.

Additionally, because metal 3D printed anatomical models provide an exact replica of a patient’s teeth and jawbone structure before making any alterations or corrections on them, it helps surgeons prepare better for implants or other surgical procedures by providing them with detailed information about their patient’s anatomy beforehand.

In conclusion, due its numerous advantages over traditional manufacturing processes such as improved accuracy, speed and cost savings; as well as its ability to provide superior quality prosthetics tailored specifically for an individual patient’s needs;

2CREATE is an industry-leading metal 3D printer designed specifically for dental applications with intricate geometry.

Whether you need to make dental implants, industrial parts or just for the flexibility of research and development, the 2CREATE can handle the job in a cost-effective, efficient, and high-quality way.

With an open concept design, this metal 3D printer is compatible with powders from other manufacturers giving you the freedom to make a wide variety of parts without having to spend extra money.

Fast, simple & straightforward!

2CREATE Metal 3D Printer is significantly faster than its competing products, which is what makes it so attractive to its users. Its print files are in a transparent Gcode format, making printing 3D simple and straightforward. The coater rotates in only one direction, keeping dead wasted time to a minimum. 

While rotating, the coater picks up new powder while the laser process is still active, this is another way the metal 3D printer saves its users time and money. Once the process is completed, the build platform can immediately be coated with new powder so users can begin their next task.

2BUILD CAM Software calculates the perfect parameter - A complete digital dental solution.

2BUILD CAM Software

Parameter Development Feature

The 2Build CAM Software has been designed to support the user in the development of process parameters for new powder types. The tool accomplishes this by supporting the process from start to finish, automatically generating test patterns, and defining the test parameters for the patterns.

The analysis of the results is carried out automatically based on micrographs. In the end, the software calculates the perfect parameter sets for the powder under investigation.

Dental Retainers

Dental retainers are parts that are used to maintain the alignment of teeth after orthodontic treatment. They are typically worn on a regular basis, either full-time or part-time, depending on the individual’s needs and the recommendations of their dentist or orthodontist. There are several different types of dental retainers, including:

Hawley Retainers

Dental retainers are parts that are used to maintain the alignment of teeth after orthodontic treatment.

Fixed Retainers

These retainers are bonded to the back of the teeth, and they cannot be removed by the patient.

Clear plastic Retainers

These retainers are made from a clear, flexible plastic material, and they are nearly invisible when worn.

Essix retainers

These retainers are similar to clear plastic retainers, but they are made from a thicker and more durable material.

Metal 3D printing technology

The use of metal 3D printing technology has the potential to revolutionize the production of wire retainers, by allowing for the creation of custom-fit retainers that are tailored to the unique shape of each individual’s mouth. This can improve the comfort and effectiveness of the retainer, while also reducing production time and costs. Additionally, the use of metal materials in 3D printing can provide increased durability and strength compared to traditional wire retainers.

Overall, wire retainers are a valuable tool in maintaining the alignment of the teeth after orthodontic treatment, and the use of 3D printing technology has the potential to improve the production and performance of these devices.

Titanium is the most used material for dental 3d printing also possible are Cobald, Iron, Aluminium, Copper and Nickel based alloys.
