3D Printing Orthodontics

The orthodontic industry is shifting gears by implementing new 3D production methods in the field of stomatology.

The goal is to move production toward total digital processing and manufacturing. While pursuing more comfort and beauty, brace less and the invisible orthodontics and now being offered to customers, utilizing this new 3D printing technology.

As computers and software improve so does orthodontic systems continue to evolve, offering patients an aesthetic and comfortable orthodontic experience. As more patients opt for invisible orthodontics, the group of users increases exponentially.

The availability of invisible orthodontics is responsible for the industry accelerated development and growth. With promising industrial prospects and the benefits of 3D technology, the orthodontic industry is expected to explode in the future. Current 3D print technology is capable of producing precise dental models, allowing for technically reliable and comfortable invisible braces.

Leading enterprises of the orthodontic industry report an overall cost reduction in the year 2020 of 35% labor costs, decrease in production costs by 9.7%, while in 2019 it was 3.5%. Experts explain the reduction due to the scale effect mostly attributed the move to fully automate the entire production line and replace manual labor.

How to build the fully automated production line?

Automating the Digital 3D manufacturing solution

Current 3D print technology already offers a host of solutions to produce an accurate 3D dental prototypes, used as the hot press mold for the production of invisible braces. UnionTech offers an automated digital 3D printing solution for the orthodontic industry.
