Abstract:

3D printing is a form of additive manufacturing technology where a three dimensional object is created by laying down successive layers of material. It is also known as rapid prototyping. It is the next revolution in field of dental and medical science. It has role in every branch of dentistry. It plays a pivotal role in computer guided surgery, maxillofacial prosthesis, face reconstruction, orthognathic wafer & 3D models. It adds a new dimension to the treatment planning with facility to perform mock surgery. It adds a new level to precision in implantology through guided surgery. A concept of ‚??tooth in an hour‚?Ě is no far with help of 3D printing. A better understanding of work flow is required with knowledge regarding the dicom and stl files conversion and 3D printers.
