Abstract

The newly emerging technology of 3D printing when applied for the production of dental devices is significantly limited by the availability of photo curable materials. This manufacturing technique is used nowadays only for small dental bridges. In this paper we introduce an improved polymeric nanocomposite as specific material for manufacturing 3D printed dental prosthesis. Based on the proposed nanocomposite: poly(methyl methacrylate) - TiO2 nanoparticles, it was possible to manufacture a complete denture.
