With intraoral scanner we obtain digital models of both dental arches and their transformation into physical models using 3D printers, replacing thus the classical method used for conventional models. This investigation is composed of separate scans of both arches and of the occlusion in order to highlight occlusal reports.
3D printing is the process of making three-dimensional solid objects, starting from a digital model. Printed study patterns are performed following the intraoral scanning process, and the data obtained during scanning is processed with special programs to help prepare them for printing. This is the process by which a 3D object is created layer by layer, until the final shape is reached.
