3D printed teeth to keep your mouth free of bacteria
Lost a tooth? Soon your dentist could print you another – and it’ll help keep your mouth clean, too. Getting fitted for a false tooth or other dental treatment tends to involve a mouthful of foul-tasting gunk and plaster casts. But now dentists are moving to high-tech digital scanning and 3D printing. That switch opens the door to more advanced materials that could improve your oral hygiene.
