Fabricating a dual-material, vat-polymerized, additively manufactured static implant surgical guide: A dental technique Academic Article uri icon


  • Protocols with static computer-aided implant placement provide more tangible clinical advantages than conventional implant placement methods. A technique to manufacture a dual-material implant surgical guide by using a vat-polymerization printer is described. The implant surgical guide combined a resilient intaglio and hard exterior surface. The technique should minimize the clinical adjustments needed to ensure fit and improve patient comfort.
