The application of additive manufacturing (AM) process in dentistry is increasing gradually. The potential program of
is to connect materials layer by layer through 3D data model
Four independent incremental processes (laser stereolithography, polymer spray, digital light processing, melt deposition manufacturing) are mainly used in dental polymers.
however, the amount of AM polymer materials that can be used in dentistry is less than that in other fields In addition, the application of am in dentistry is limited (such as research model, maxillofacial prosthesis, orthodontic appliance, etc.). Recently, due to the increase of safety and other application requirements, the research and development of new and replacement materials is in progress In oral environment, whether as temporary or final reconstruction, the possibility of application and biocompatibility of materials need more stable mechanical properties (less or no post-processing), which has become the goal of modern am technology.
printing parameters can also be further developed when optical requirements are equally important
