MW23B18 - The State of Mass-Customization in Orthodontics

‐ Jan 29, 2023 10:15am

The dental industry has been the driving economic force behind most 3D Printing (3DP) innovation in the last decade. Teeth are as unique as fingerprints, which makes orthodontics the ideal application for 3D printing. We will review the state of aligners/fixed appliances, and how a fully digital practice can be more efficient and improve the patient experience, while giving doctors more control.

Learning Objectives:

  • Familiarize yourself with how 3D printing achieves ideal customization for orthodontics.
  • Evaluate the clinical applications and smile design with custom 3D printing.
  • Outline the benefits of custom appliances when it comes to scheduling and practice efficiency.
