3D Printing a Surgical Guide
I recently had the opportunity to purchase a used Cel-Robox printer. Last year I took a 3D Printing CE course with Rick Ferguson DDS. After calibrating the printer to Rick Ferguson's settings, I decided to practice my course knowledge with a sample case. I merged the .stl and .dicom files and then planned the implant and subsequent guide in Blue Sky Plan software for an ideal screw retained #19. While freehand implant placement is perfectly acceptable, being able to use computer guided precision to implants is a great tool for some cases.
