    Couplings for Dental Products

    The dental industry, sometimes referred to as dental medicine, helps prevent and treat oral diseases and conditions by manufacturing various instruments, tools and equipment. As the population gets older, the dental industry has seen increased demand for oral maintenance and cosmetic dental procedures such as dental implants. Additionally, there is heightened emphasis on providing cost effective and efficient services. To adapt to meeting cost targets and shifting patient needs, the dental industry is seeing rapid adoption of new technologies including more specialized and advanced tools like 3D printing and dental lasers.

    New Technologies Being Used by Dental Professionals

    3D Printing

    As 3D printing technologies are becoming mainstream, dental practices are using 3D printing to lower costs. 3D printing helps improve precision and efficiency for the dental industry. 

    Dental Products That Can Be 3D Printed

    • Dentures
    • Clear teeth aligners
    • Dental crown substructures
    • Dental models
    • Surgical guides

    Dental Lasers

    Laser technology is being used more and more by dental professionals across many dentistry applications. Matter of fact, laser devices are even replacing the traditional dental drill. Dental lasers can be used to repair fillings, remove cavities and accelerate whitening procedures. The dental laser market is expected to grow 11% from 2020 to 2024. 

    Benefits of Dental Lasers

    • Lessening pain
    • Speeding post-op healing
    • Reducing bleeding
    • Decreasing long-term bacteria
