What are the advantages of metal 3D dental printing for your Lab?

Implant-supported dentures are the fastest growing segment in the dental industry worldwide.If you want to stay competitive, you need to invest in the benefits of dental 3D printing now. 3D printing is faster, cheaper and more flexible than traditional manufacturing processes.

Less material, lower costs

With metal 3D printing, only as much metal powder is processed as is actually needed. Unlike the classic milling process, little material waste is produced. Excess powder can be processed and reused.

Faster printing than milling

You can position more dental components on a 100mm circular blank than in the milling process. There does not have to be any space between the components for the tool. You can print more components in less time.

Wide indication spectrum

Dental 3D printing allows you to produce a variety of dental parts. The process saves material and is very precise. In addition to crowns, bridges and partials, indications such as telescopic crowns and abutments can also be produced. Hybrid finishing with a milling system is also possible.

Digital Dental Workflow

Scanning

During the initial digitization and planning phases, the patient’s anatomy is digitally recorded using optical 3D scanners to ensure that every unique detail is noted. Dental practices then send the convention impression, otherwise known are plaster models, to dental laboratories where they are digitized by desktop optical 3D scanners. The anatomical structure of a patient can also be taken with an intraoral scanner, depending on the practice and patient’s wants.

Modeling

After the planning and design, the data is prepared and whichever printing strategy one is using is applied. The strategy used for the printing process serves as a blueprint for the denture. It’s like a recipe, guiding the production of the product. It is always optimally matched to the application as well as the predetermined material so that the best results can be achieved.

Nesting

Nesting refers to the arrangement and reorientation of components for all the printing parts. There, the focus is on aligning as many components as close together as possible to have a multitude of components all on one build platform. This alignment of the dental objects chosen by the software saves valuable post-processing time.

Printing

Once the printer has been prepared for printing, the print file can be loaded straight from the CAM software. Then all the user has to do is start the print, and the system will create the part. Once printing, the components are unpacked and the excess powder is extracted. This is done with the safe suction device. For this purpose, 2oneLab offers a powder separator, which catches the powder during the suction process, the collected powder can then be sieved and reused. After the excess powder has been collected and removed, then the component can be removed from the system for further post-processing.

Post-processing

After printing, the components must be separated from their support structures. For simple small components such as crowns, the objects can be separated directly from the build platform. For large components, such as multi-unit bridges or partials, thermal post-treatment is mandatory. After the annealing process, the components can be easily separated and continue to process.

Coating

Depending on the needs of the patients and their requirements, the components can then be polished and covered with the ceramic veneer. To give the dental prosthesis the most ethically appealing and natural appearance possible, they are then color-matched to the patient.  

Your questions about dental printing with 2CREATE and 2BUILD

Depending on the components (crowns, partials) and the selected powder, the printing time is approx. 5h.

Depending on the shape, there is room for up to 100 crowns on the 2CREATE’s build plate.

CoCr and Titanium can be processed effortlessly by a 3D printer and are among the typical materials used in the dental sector. Generally, thanks to the open system architecture, there are no restrictions regarding the material used. Our software helps you to quickly create new printing parameters for new materials.

The 2CREATE has a very compact design. Thanks to the air-cooled fiber laser, which works very efficiently, a 230V connection (1 phase) is sufficient.

Of course, you need inert gas to operate the system. For CoCr Nitrogen and for Titanium Argon.

The dental laboratory " Era Medikal Dental" was able to save costs and drastically reduce delivery time by using 3D printing in the digital process chain. The metal 3D printer 2CREATE has proven to be the ideal tool for this.
