Removable partial dentures (RPDs) are traditionally handmade, which involves a labor-intensive process that can often produce inconsistent results. In addition, there is significant material waste and finding appropriately skilled technicians is difficult. The production process also entails an excessive number of secondary processes. Finally, the only way to scale up production is by adding manpower, adding to a dental lab’s recurring labor cost.

An alternative means of producing RPDs is to use 3D printing to create the pattern, accelerating the production process. Multiple frameworks can be 3D printed at the same time, boosting productivity.

This Technical Application Guide presents the steps to cast RPDs using PolyJet™ biocompatible MED610™ material and Nobilium investment casting materials. Download below.
