3D printing in healthcare is growing by leaps and bounds.  The makers of subtractive milling technologies know it and are working hard on 3D printing solutions and other standalone printer companies or working on solutions as well.

Currently we don’t have a system widely available to can produce permanent restorations, but we are closing in on that rapidly.  Sooner as opposed to later we will have printable aesthetic materials.  Printable lithium disilicate anyone?

However, until printable restorative dentistry goes mainstream, we can still be thrilled by 3D printing in the realm of dental lab work.  VOCO, a company that has a wonderful line of products for dental practices has now announced their 3D printer to the profession.  Here’s what the company has to say about the device which comes in models Solflex 650, Solflex 350, and Solflex 170:

An increasing number of dentists and dental technicians already rely on the digitalisation of their workflow. By integrating 3D printing technology, the in-lab manufacturing can be accelerated, quality and precision improved and costs minimized.

The SolFlex 3D printers give you an easy access to additive manufacturing technology. With 3D printing technology, you benefit from the efficiency advantages of digital designs throughout the production stage. By combining scans with subsequent design and final 3D printing, the manufacture of models and splints for orthodontic dentistry can be achieved quickly and accurately.
