3D Printer Creates Digital Solution for Dental Surgical Guides

Computer simulation software based on CT scan data enables virtual implant surgical placement. This provides insight into the vital anatomy, bone quality and implant characteristics, letting experts decide if bone grafting is needed.

Objet’s 3D printed models and surgical guides were chosen by implant surgeons to facilitate the proper implant placement based on the final prosthesis’ occlusion and aesthetics.

The Objet 3D printer proved to be the perfect solution, enabling Guide3D to design and print surgical guides for most implant cases. Models produced on the Objet printer can be cold-sterilized, have exceptionally fine details and have an outstanding surface finish – all necessary for ensuring the high degree of accuracy required by Guide3D’s team and dentists.
