3D printing and Orthodontics - OpLab

3D printing is increasingly becoming an indispensable tool in the dental industry, for the design of prostheses, for planning interventions, or simply for educational purposes.

OpLab - Dental Laboratory, uses an Ultimaker 3D printer to create physical models of dental arches, obtained from previous 3D scans.

Using the models obtained, the technicians proceed to thermoforming to obtain bruxism bites, bleaching masks etc.

In this video an example of the manufacturing process.
