Dentures Plus going 3D

Sunday, April 28, 2019
“There are exciting things happening in the world of dentures. We’ve really embraced the digital age and its associated technology. ”

Ryan Carlton of Dentures Plus has recently been to IDS, the leading global trade fair of the dental industry in Cologne, Germany. “IDS presents the most important concepts and advances for the practices and laboratories of today and tomorrow. I was looking in particular at 3D printing of dentures.“

Ryan says that 3D printing of dental appliances is not only accurate, but it is quick, helps to streamline the making of high quality polymer-based dentures and is far less messy than creating plaster models. It also reduces the amount of material required and is a rather more pleasant experience for patients.

"As 3D printer technology becomes more accessible the cost of use is also going down. I have been waiting for an all-in-one system that covers virtually the whole process and that is now available from a company called Kulzer. My patients can look forward to 3D printed dentures when I introduce the technique over the next few months. It will be great for them and stimulating for me as well.“
