AM firm based in Austria, Lithoz has reported a new collaboration with Dr Jens Tartsch, a specialist in ceramic implantology in Switzerland. Dr Jens is also president and founder of the European Society for Ceramic Implantology (ESCI). Mutually, the associates will look to recognize new apps to create the future of additively manufactured ceramic implants in the sector dentistry.
Ceramic materials are already widely utilized in the sector of dental. This is because they are biocompatible. Their risk of triggering inflammation is less in contrast to metal implants.
Also, ceramics have the advantage of having lasting stability and great mechanical performance. This is suitable for implants that need to execute the teeth function. Additively manufactured dental implants are also beneficial: they provide a huge degree of design liberty as compared to traditionally produced equipment and are more effective when it comes to use of material. For this logic, and also the potential of customization, AM is a common technology all over the dental industry. The objective of the collaboration is to improve 3D printed ceramics usage.
Lithoz, a firm that has created a scalable ceramic additive manufacturing procedure, Lithography-based Ceramic Manufacturing (LCM), has been part of the dentistry for a long time. It provides several medically optimized stuff. As stated by the firm its ceramics will quickly hold EN ISO 13485 permit.
Working in partnership with Dr Jens Tartsch, the company will look into dental implant apps for its LCM procedure. This includes bone augmentation and traditional dental implants. As for the latter, Lithoz provides resorbable stuff such as tricalcium phosphate or hydroxylapatite which may be utilized to make interlinked pore network-based implants which are personalized to the bone status of the patients. These great personalized machines could sustain dental implant development in situations where the doesn’t have a jaw bone.
On Aug 26, 2020, Lithoz’s Dr. Bomz and Dr. are having a webinar To get deeper into their partnership. The webinar will talk about the ceramic AM opportunities in the dental business. It will also respond to any questions members may have.
