The Bright Future of Dental Surgical Guides
Surgical guides are only getting better. And as more dental professionals come to rely on these lightweight, accurate devices, more journalists are beginning to cover their myriad benefits in print.
The Washingtonian recently published a full article about 3D printing in the field of dentistry, noting that working through software and fabrication eliminates human error, and provides far better visibility for surgeons:
These days, a procedure such as an implant may start with a cone-beam CT scan, a device akin to a 3-D x-ray, that captures the face’s bone architecture as well as the location of teeth and gums. The images are used to create a 3-D model that shows a patient how his teeth will look once the procedure is complete; it also helps guide the dentist toward the precise location and angle of a bridge, crown, or implant.
3D printing is our stock in trade at Scan Implant Guide: our California facility collects your scan imaging and works closely with dental professionals to build implants to suit the patient and procedure perfectly.
