The current dental prosthetic procedure usually takes a few weeks for a dentist to take x-rays of the jaw and later, make the necessary cast for dental implants or replacement crowns that are unique to the patient's mouth. 3D Printing Drastically Cuts Waiting Time The new innovation is currently in the testing phase of development and is said ... (view more)
