In recent years there 3D Printing technologies have flourished. From new methods of building homes to small-scale manufacturing businesses operating out of people’s homes, this technology’s applications continue to grow. The dental industry has also benefited from this innovation, bringing same-day dental restoration options to patients everywhere. Using this technology, there’s no need to wait for your permanent restoration to arrive. Instead, it can be printed while you’re in the office.
What Dental Procedures Are Available For Same Day Treatment?
The dental procedures that can be part of same-day dentistry are always growing as the technology expands. Presently dental restorations are the most common uses of this technology, including fillings, crowns, inlays and onlays, and dental implants. When you’re looking to have a single tooth replaced, numerous teeth, or even all of them, you can have it performed with same-day dentistry utilizing 3D printing technology.
Will Same-Day Dentistry Work For Dental Implants?
Conventional dental implants still need multiple visits to the dentist and a long healing period before the implants are put in place. While dental implants remain one of the most popular restoration solutions for patients, the six-month-long healing period has been a breaking point for some. 3D Dentistry makes it possible to bypass this process. With this new technology, you’ll have your dental implants set in place and ready to use in just one visit! You’ll be able to laugh, speak, eat, and smile normally immediately, and after a healing period, they’ll be as good as your natural teeth!
What Are Same-Day Dental Restorations Made From?
Ceramic has long been the most popular material for use in creating restorations, and that hasn’t changed with the introduction of same-day dental restorations. Another material used in same-day dentistry is a special resin. This resin is put into a 3D printer and used to create a restoration that perfectly mimics your natural tooth. 3D Imaging is used to get a perfect picture of your oral structures and allows the 3D printer to produce a perfect fit for your restoration.
What Are The Drawbacks With This Treatment?
When compared to traditional crowns, same-day dentistry tends to be somewhat less durable than your natural teeth. The porcelain and metal used in common restorations are able to withstand more stress than this same-day treatment. The difference isn’t significant, and a little extra care will ensure that you never have to worry about them becoming damaged.
