    The state of 3D printing

    Digital technology is creating workflows never seen before in the dental industry. The pathways of sharing information and collaborating on cases are becoming more abundant and easier to use. As members of the restorative team strive for more accuracy in all aspects of the process, from implant placement, impression taking and prosthesis creation, one tool that is sure to get used more often is 3D printing. There are very few things that have advanced as quickly as 3D printing over the past few years. This advancement has come from the convergence of hardware and material development happening simultaneously. Along with this external development, the people using the 3D printers have also learned to optimize both the files they are printing and the machines they are using.  

    The amazing thing is that this could just be the tip of the iceberg as it relates to 3D printing. As material manufacturers continue to strive for government approval for intraoral use, the printer and software companies, and the forward-thinking people operating the machines, continue to gain knowledge of the possibilities offered by additive manufacturing. This technology will grow exponentially.
