Castable Wax Resin for Dental: Efficient, Cost-Effective Production
Why you should watch
In dental technology, rapid adaptability is required in order to remain competitive as digitalization progresses. The most efficient, consistent dental workflows result from a hybrid of the digital and traditional worlds, and the most advanced dental labs are asking: how can digital technology supplement analog workflows to add the labor efficiencies needed to meet today’s heavy demands?
Casting and pressing are crafts that have been developed over many years, and today, 3D printed patterns are making these techniques more efficient and scalable for more businesses. In this webinar, Sam Wainwright, dental product manager at Formlabs, discusses how 3D printers and specialized materials with dental CAD software can help your dental lab scale production of fixed restorations in-house, and shares practical tips for building digital production workflows for casting and pressing crowns, bridges, and removable partial dentures (RPDs) using patterns 3D printed on the Form 2.
