Precision 3D printing
for digital dentistry
3D printing is set to replace traditional dental modeling techniques in the near future.
Digital dentistry is faster, less burdensome for the patient, and inherently more precise.
Why thousands of dentists
use 3D printers?
A 3D printer working as a part of a larger digital dentistry system allows to see more patients per day. It also cuts costs, reduces human error, and guarantees better quality service for the patient.
3D printed dental appliances
Resin 3D printers can be used to either print dental appliances directly or to make precise investment casting patterns
for devices requiring materials difficult to 3D print with like dental alloys for bridges or ceramics for crowns. Investment casting
patterns are printed with castable resins while 3D printing of devices meant for intraoral use requires Class I or Class II biocompatible photopolymers.
Patterns of crowns
Digital dentistry workflow
From impression taking to end-use dentures, crowns, or orthodontic appliances, digital dentistry is changing the way dental labs and practices work. Each step of traditional dental modeling has got improved, digitized, and automated. Here's how it works.
Step 2 CAD/CAM designFrom splints and crowns to entire bridges or dentures, modern dental CAD/CAM software can make personalized designs perfectly fitted to each particular patient's anatomy.
Step 3 ManufacturingAfter the design stage, a CAD/CAM software can send the model to digital manufacturing devices like zirconium CNC machines or dental resin 3D printers. Quality equipment can produce crowns or dentures with microscopic precision.
What makes Zortrax Inkspire a perfect dental 3D printer?
Key features for dental
Four most important questions to ask when choosing a dental resin 3D printer are how precise it is, how fast it is, how well does it scale up, and whether it is compatible with highly specialized resins made for digital dentistry. Zortrax Inkspire outperforms a leading dental SLA 3D printer in all those areas.
Z-SUITE for Zortrax Inkspire
Z-SUITE is a dedicated slicing and 3D printing farm management software that comes free with every Zortrax 3D printer. It is compatible with the most popular dental CAD/CAM software solutions like inLab CAD SW 18 or ZFx Dental CAD Design Software. Zortrax Inskpire can also work with third-party slicers.
