The Modern Dentist and Manufacturer's Role in Current High-Tech Era

The Complete Guide to Manufacturing Customized Dental Prosthetics

The dental industry has been at the forefront of technological development for decades. Dentists are customizing treatments to meet the needs of their patients, and manufacturers are responding with high-tech products that offer improved precision and efficacy.

In the modern era, dentistry is more high-tech than ever. Manufacturers are needed to produce the custom-made dental prosthetics that dentists need to create their work. It is an important role that will be a part of dentistry for many years to come.

Dental prosthetic manufacturing is the process of designing and creating dental prosthetic devices. These devices are used to replace missing teeth or other oral structures.

The use of wax models during the manufacturing process can save prosthetic manufacturers by reducing the amount of costly exotic materials needed,  reducing expenses and in turn making you more money leading to higher return on investment (ROI) on projects.

High-Tech Equipment for Dental Labs and Dentist Offices

In the past few decades, dentistry has advanced significantly. The equipment used in dental labs and dentist offices are more sophisticated and modern than ever before.An example of high-tech equipment that can be found in dental labs and dentist offices today include CEREC - CAD/CAM milling machines.  This equipment is used by manufacturers in the creation of crowns, bridges, veneers, inlays and onlays. This system allows for the production of a single crown or bridge in a single appointment. The CEREC milling machine can also be used to fabricate surgical guides for implants and other surgical procedures.

Product Design & Customization

3D printing technology is a revolution in the dental industry. It has been used to design and produce custom teeth, dental lab technician, and dentures.

This process starts with scanning a patient’s teeth using an intra-oral scanner. The scanned data is then uploaded to a computer where it is processed into a 3D model of the teeth. From there, the technician can design and customize individualized teeth for the patient as well as produce them using 3D printing technology.

The 3D model of the teeth can also be milled by creating a wax model of the dentures and then sending them off to be cast in a dental lab where they will utilize CAD software to design custom teeth for the patient.

Both XenoFiber and XenoWax can help dental professionals in the additive or subtractive manufacturing, design and customization of dental prosthetics.
