Partial dentures need to fit the patient without any compromise, as well as looking natural and aesthetic. Ideally, they should also last forever. Bridges, crowns and model cast prostheses are usually manufactured by hand – a complex and cost-intensive process.
Industrial 3D printing is a more cost-efficient and precise alternative for dental laboratories and manufacturing service providers. It is characterized by consistent and repeatable part quality, as well as high reproducibility.
Bego USA relies on a 3D printer system from EOS to produce dental prostheses using non-precious metal alloys. The system achieves a precision of +/- 20 micrometers. Conventional methods are capable of producing around 20 units per day.
By contrast, the 3D printing system by EOS scales up to 450 crowns and bridges per day. The results: Bego USA is already producing hundreds of units per week less than one year after installing their EOSINT M 270.
Our package for 3D-printed model cast prostheses
For model casting, EOS solutions achieve extensive time savings. Designing a model cast prosthesis takes just 15 minutes. The EOSINT M 270 system can be used to make model cast prostheses. It works very accurately, makes laboratory work easier and produces approx. 48 units per day with consistent quality. All material and application properties are compatible with one another. The technology can make structures that are more delicate than is possible with conventional casting techniques. High detail rendition supports the reproduction of grained structures. For model cast prostheses, the material EOS CobaltChrome RPD can be used, a biocompatible cobalt-chromium-molybdenum alloy (type 5 according to ISO 22674) that is CE-certified (CE 0537) for the dental industry.
