Compared with traditional temporary crowns, what are the specific advantages of 3D printed temporary crowns?

The temporary crown is an important part of the fixed restoration. Its main function is to protect the pulp from damage, ensure the correct position of the gums, and prevent tooth displacement due to missing teeth. Therefore, the temporary crown requires good surface smoothness and strength, and the crown has high precision and can play a good retention effect.

What are the advantages of 3D printing temporary crowns?

First, most of the materials used in 3D printing are photosensitive resins, and the molding smoothness is definitely better than the traditional hand-made products that need to be trimmed, polished, and polished.
Second, the use of computer calculations to design the shape of the temporary crown, the more accurate the data collected, the more accurate the 3D printing of the temporary crown.
Third, using 3D printing to produce, the steps are more simplified and the efficiency is higher.

Compared with traditional hand-made temporary crowns and 3D printing, the advantages of 3D printing mainly lie in better surface smoothness, better crown strength and molding accuracy, and for clinics, it can also provide higher diagnosis and treatment efficiency. Therefore, from all aspects, the introduction of 3D printing equipment in the clinic is a very good choice.

Temporary crowns made by 3D printing first need to scan the data of the patient’s oral cavity, and then transmit the data to the denture technology factory. Temporary crown.

In the data collection stage, the patient’s oral data is obtained through oral scanning + CBCT, or model warehouse scanning. The collected data will be directly transmitted to the design center. The professional dental designer of the design center will conduct the layout and design of the temporary crown. , the data will be made into printing data by typesetting software, and the temporary crown and bridge processing will be completed through the dental 3D printer. The doctor only needs a simple operation on the spot to complete the temporary crown production.

Production process

1. Use a 3D scanner to capture the patient’s oral conditions

2. Transfer the collected data to the computer to design the crown model

3. Printing with a 3D printer

4. Cleaning after printing, secondary curing, disinfection before the entrance

5. Delivery of temporary crowns

In terms of 3D printing temporary dental crowns, the well-known 3D printing manufacturer IFUN has already had relatively mature application cases. There are not only dental-specific industrial-grade high-capacity 3D printers but also medical-grade 3D printing resin material 3164 specially developed for temporary crowns. The printed temporary crowns have strong biocompatibility and high quality. It is not only delicate and smooth but also has good permeability. It is natural, very close to real teeth in appearance and texture, and the entrance is also good, and there is no peculiar smell when wearing it.
