Avi Cohen, Director at Global Dental at Stratasys, says now is the time for dental labs to embrace new digital technologies. In 2013 Stratasys launched the Objet30 OrthoDesk 3D Printer which is specially designed for smaller orthodontic labs and clinics. 3D printers allow dentists to create molds for crowns, bridges or surgical guides more easily than ever before and in far less time than using traditional methods.

This month Stratasys announced that optimized manufacturing pre-settings for its Objet30 OrthoDesk and Objet Eden 3D Printers have been added to the latest release of 3Shape Implant Studio Implant Planning and Surgical Guides Design software.

Dentists use the 3Shape Implant Studio software and CBCT scans to achieve accurate implant planning, prosthetics, and drill guide design. And now they will be able to use 3D printers to create highly accurate molds for crowns and bridges. The newly added pre-settings for Stratasys Objet-line 3D Printers enable 3Shape users to generate an STL file optimized for Stratasys dental 3D printing systems, aimed at ensuring smooth workflow with excellent results.

Cohen believes that the new software will help accelerate implementation of digital dental services worldwide, bringing mass customization to small and mid-sized labs. He has witnesses the growing use of 3D printing in hospital and the current dental digital wave as well as all the positive changes digital advancements are having in the industry. "The labs need to move to digital dentistry," Cohen says. "The future is around the corner and we are already there."

I'd love to volunteer for this. I've spent 20k to end up with temps and dentists who say they've never heard of this

Someone will try to print an implant that is a perfect copy of a natural tooth using biomaterials .
