Dee for Dentist, a Las Vegas based family practice that provides digital dentistry, has recently acquired a medical grade 3D printer for dentistry – the Primeprint 3D Printing System by Dentsply Sirona.
The automated advanced printer provides expanded treatment with same-day, in-house production as the printer can create temporary teeth, dentures, night guards, digital wax-ups, custom trays for impressions, surgical guides, and print dental models. Designed specifically for the dental industry, it can help to reduce handling times and enable a high level of productivity.
“I founded Dee for Dentist with the goal of providing Southern Nevada access to the latest technology. To have a chairside 3D printer that can create teeth and dentures, among other things, in one day is an amazing service we are now able to offer. It is like science fiction has come to life, allowing us to take our level of patient care to the next level,” said Dr. Dee Dee Meevasin, owner and primary clinician at Dee for Dentist. “We can’t wait for our patients to witness the future of dental medicine right now – in the present.”
Prior to the release of the Primeprint system, chairside 3D printing was messy, inefficient, and unpredictable. Traditionally, a dental practice takes a patient scan, sends it to an outside lab to convert into a file that they can then print, or the lab manufactures the product and ships it back. With this new technology, the entire process is automated in-house, significantly reducing human error by eliminating the need for employees to wear gloves, rinse equipment and manually process the materials. The all-digital system also improves accuracy, treatment outcomes, and workflow efficiencies while eliminating wasted materials and decreasing time spent on technician training.
