Big congratulations to multitasking Dentist, Dental Technician & Researcher Michael Braian who held his disputation today for his thesis Digital Dentistry – Studies on the Trueness and Precision of Additive Manufacturing and Intraoral Scanning.
Digital Dentistry – additive manufacturing and intraoral scanning
Michael’s study is divided into four parts: 1) Present the horizontal clearance of the interface between internal-hexagon and external-hexagon implants and analogues with corresponding cylindric gold and plastic abutments upon delivery from the implant manufacturer.
2) Determine the production accuracy of four commercially available polymeric additive manufacturing systems by reverse engineering two geometrical objects.
3) Evaluate the production accuracy of five additive manufacturing systems and one subtractive manufacturing system for the production of metallic components by reverse engineering two geometrical objects.
4) Study the accuracy of four different intraoral scanners for full-arch scanning of one edentulous model and one dentated model.
Inspiring and important work in digital dentistry
To show our appreciation for his inspiring and important work, we gifted Michael with an Elos Accurate Torque Wrench for measuring the correct torque value when installing prosthetic constructions – with his initials and new title DDS CTD PhD engraved.
