The process of desktop 3d printing is a fun way to make things, but a new kind of resin is helping to change the technology from passive to professional. The new Dental SG Resin can be used in the 3D printers available from Formlabs to help dentists gain better control over the work they do and the implants they implant.

The process of creating implants, molds and more in dental offices is a timely exercise that can sometimes take weeks. The implementation of desktop 3D printing into the equation mixed with the Dental SG Resin could help revolutionize restorative dental procedures. With it, dentists could be able to print what they need in as little as an hour and even practice the procedure on a model before the real thing.
