3D printing is slowly beginning to disrupt the Dental business, keep in mind obtaining clay stuffed into your mouth therefore a model will be created for braces? well, that's currently history cause now a simple scan of your mouth is all that's needed. The scanner creates a digital drawing of your teeth and this info gets sent to a 3D printer that prints out the model, no a lot of messing around with Plaster Of Paris (POP).
