The future of digital dentistry is here.
All About Dentures is the first in Brisbane also catering to residents in Ipswich to offer the latest in digital denture technology.
So, what exactly is a digital denture?
Digital dentures are designed and manufactured using advanced computer modelling technology. Computer-aided design (CAD) technology has advanced into dentistry, and it is now possible to design an entire denture using industry-leading digital software.
But the fun doesn’t stop there! Following computer design, technology now exists for us to be able to both 3D print and mill dentures out of a solid block. This type of high-tech machinery is now easily accessible to the patients in Ipswich.
So how does 3D printing and milling work?
3D Printing works by lowering a platform into a aqueous solution of light-curable material where a beam of light is projected to harden the liquid material layer by layer and build denture components that can be joined by hand following processing.
The milling process is the premium option, and that starts by designing the denture on the software then the denture is milled from a blank disc of PMMA acrylic. Once the design is milled the final finishing touches can be applied to the denture by hand. This result in a superior product with extreme strength and accuracy.
10 reasons why a digital manufactured denture is more superior compared to conventional handmade denture?
- Offers superior accuracy
- That leads to superior fit
- And superior strength
- More hygienic and easier to clean
- Reduced treatment time and appointments
- A digital try-in is possible to first test for a few days
- Can be made thinner that improves comfort
- Less pressure spots adjustments needed
- Less denture brakes and fractures
A digital copy is saved and can be remade without impressions
