Stereolithographic Technique for Dentures

2016-09-22 21:08:21 | BioPortfolio


The aim of this observational study is: producing complete dental prosthesis with the aid of CAD-CAM (Computer aided design & manufacturing) - 3D printing (Stereolithography) technology - using as printable material Poli(methylmetacrylate) - PMMA - with Nano TiO2 nanoparticles composite completely characterized.


In order to improve complete dentures fabrications an experimental model for optimizing the composite material and the execution technique for the 3D printed dental prosthesis was developed.

- A new polymer - nano-TiO2 composite system for dentures printing was obtained by adding 0,4-1%TiO2 nanoparticle in the commercially available E-Dent 100 (EnvisionTEC, Germany).

- The new polymer was completely characterized and biocompatibility tests were perform.

- A stereolithography technique was set-up for CAD-CAM complete dentures manufacturing.

- 3D printed dental prosthesis will be inserted to a number of 35 complete edentulous patients from a target group;

- Clinical follow-up at 6, 12 and 18 months and quality assessment of the dentures will be recorded in a specific chart.

- A statistical evaluation of data recorded during the entire follow-up period will be performed.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The total absence of teeth from either the mandible or the maxilla, but not both. Total absence of teeth from both is MOUTH, EDENTULOUS. Partial absence of teeth in either is JAW, EDENTULOUS, PARTIALLY.

Total lack of teeth through disease or extraction.

Devices or pieces of equipment placed in or around the mouth or attached to instruments to protect the external or internal tissues of the mouth and the teeth.

Procedure of producing an imprint or negative likeness of the teeth and/or edentulous areas. Impressions are made in plastic material which becomes hardened or set while in contact with the tissue. They are later filled with plaster of Paris or artificial stone to produce a facsimile of the oral structures present. Impressions may be made of a full complement of teeth, of areas where some teeth have been removed, or in a mouth from which all teeth have been extracted. (Illustrated Dictionary of Dentistry, 1982)

Absence of teeth from a portion of the mandible and/or maxilla.
