Analysis of technologies for rapid prototyping of dental constructions

Yavor Sofronov, Nikolay Nikolov, Georgi Todorov


In the following article are presented new technologies for the production of dental implants. Using the best achievements of mechanical engineering, such as CAD / CAM and additive technologies entirely new opportunities for increasing complexity, geometric accuracy, speed and production efficiency of dental products are discovered.
