3D Printing Enhances Dental Surgeries and Delights Patients

Since its founding in 2005, Singapore-based T32 Dental Centre has become a leading provider of dental services in the Southeast Asian region. A key factor in the company’s success has been its continuing adoption of the latest innovative technology. However, it was only recently that the company was able to take a giant leap forward.

Traditionally, dentists and doctors have depended on at, 2D images to guide them through difficult and often painful dental surgeries. As a result, the doctors were limited in their ability to know exactly where to operate and place necessary implants.
