Custom root-analogue dental implant manufactured by direct metal laser forming
This project aims to create protocol for custom-made dental implant manufacturing. Dental implant will be 3D printed based on patient scans. The project will connect newest laser manufacturing technology with existing implantation procedure research. In addition, the dental implant structure creation protocol will be suitable for implementation in additive manufacturing facilities. Project results will be integrated in the educational programs, will be published in international journals and will be presented in scientific conferences. We shall commercialize the project result and sell the protocol to additive manufacturing facilities and dental professionals. This protocol also could be a part of the package for implant planning software. Moreover, the developed workflow will provide uptake potential for further building jaw implants with similar parameters.
