Currently, removable partial dentures are produced in wax or digitally designed and then manually cast. The many variables involved in making detailed dental casts result in a significant number of miscasts. According to a case study by Renishaw, industry feedback suggests that 14 to 20 percent of dental castings require remakes.
CUDH and Renishaw are using 3D printing to make the process of producing removable partial dentures more streamlined and cost-effective, reducing waste and enabling easy refinements and iteration.
