3D Printing for the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery: From Surgical Guides to Immediate Teeth

With continued popularity, increasing evidence in the literature, decreasing capital investment as well as integration into general residency training, 3D printing is becoming a well-accepted practice enhancement in both private and academic settings. The purpose of this session is to familiarize the audience with the various applications of 3D printing while showcasing the feasibility of point-of-care service in various clinical settings. The session aims to allow attendees to take away practice-building information from this engaging and interactive forum.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this program, participants should be able to:

  1. Cite point-of-care applications of 3D printing technology in an OMS practice. 
  2. List basic terms, process and utility of 3D printing in patient reconstruction. 
  3. Identify the nuances of 3D printing in clinical settings to improve outcome of the reconstruction.
