MOONRAY 3D PRINTING FOR IMPLANTS
When it comes to dental implants, the older method was to freehand the procedure, “eyeballing” where the implant should be placed. But now, at our dental practice located in Temecula, CA, our dentists use precise 3-D surgical guides which are printed using the Moonray 3-D printer. This technology utilizes our state-of-the-art CT scanning technology that produces 3-D virtual models for the Moonray 3-D printer to create the precision surgical guides. This allows for our doctors to maximize the precision of the dental implant’s placement, while reducing the risk for possible nerve damage.
3-D technology by Moonray also allows us to create dental models for orthodontic retainers, nightguards, and other dental appliances.
