There are plenty of tools that can be used to create custom dental solutions, Structo is hoping to bring dentistry into the 21st century with 3D printing. As well as being able to develop highly customized solutions for patients, dentists and their assistants will be able to offer them in much quicker ways with cutting-edge technologies at their fingertips.
While Structo's OrthoForm 3D printer is suited to creating night guards, clear aligners and splints, the new DentaForm is described as a machine for "restorative dentistry and the creation of models for fitting bridges and crowns."
The DentaForm is designed to be relatively small, so that it can be easily slotted into workspaces without taking up too much space. As one of the founders of Structo describes, "We are revolutionizing digital dentistry by breaking through the speed limits of 3D printers today."
