SP-9 Applications of 3D Printing Technology in Endodontics

5 (1 vote)

CE Hours: 1.0

Description: Computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) technologies provide new possibilities for diagnosis, treatment planning and student education in dentistry. Applications of three-dimensional (3D) printing technology to dentistry have dramatically changed the disciplines of orthodontics, prosthodontics, oral and maxillofacial surgery, and more recently Endodontics. Fused deposition modeling (FDM), Digital light processing (DLP) and stereolithography (SLA) are available for use to print. Cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) and 3D oral scans have been used in Endodontics as the imaging modality of choice for treatment planning of nonsurgical and surgical endodontic approaches. The application of 3D printing in endodontics was investigated in 3 modalities: guided non-surgical endodontics (guided endodontic access), guided surgical root resection endodontics (surgical guides, diagnosis, and treatment planning), and educational models in clinical simulation (preclinical training). The presentation will describe endodontic treatments performed with the aid of CBCT imaging and oral scan data used in 3D printing guides for endodontic access and surgical endodontics. The use of this data to develop endodontic preclinical training models is a highlight of the presentation.

Learning Objectives: 

    List the current 3D printing technologies available for endodontic treatments.
  • Describe the applications of 3D printing technologies for endodontic treatments and education.
  • Apply 3D printing technologies for patients and students in the discipline.
