As already mentioned, a dentist or orthodontist can use an intraoral 3D scanner to obtain the necessary measurements to create a model of a tooth or denture. Using the software, they can design finished products according to the CAD model. Here, metal 3D printers also come into consideration. The latter mainly concerns crowns or bridges, but on the other hand, a dentist or orthodontist can make an actual physical model of a tooth or dentures, thereby testing the fit in reality. Such manufacturing is much more accurate, faster, and cheaper than traditional methods.
