3D Printing in the Dental Market

3D Printing in the Dental Market

3D Printing in the dental market will reach $3.1 billion by 2020, according to a report by SmarTech. SmarTech has published three reports focusing particularly on the three industries where 3D printing is widely expected to see rapid and real, transformational growth – jewelry, medical, and dental. In this blog we will focus on the dental industry.

3D Printing in the Dental Market

The dental industry is transforming into a fully-digital one quicker than most dentists imagined, and 3D technologies are completely altering the way in which dental solutions can be approached thanks to its ability to print a variety of complex shapes on demand, in a variety of applicable materials, in significant volumes.

No other industry currently adopting 3D printing has the same combination of high value, high performance, and high volume parts required by the dental industry, making 3D printing a near perfect fit for true disruption and game changing capability compared to existing traditional methods of production.

In fact, dentistry is such a good fit for the principal value of 3D printing, that nearly every 3D printing process and major provider can apply its technology to the space in some way –although not all do today, they may in the future. Both polymer and metallic applications exist in significant variety, for everything from surgical guides and models, casting and tools to aid in traditional techniques, to actual dental restorative components for both temporary and permanent solutions.
