178 Million Americans are missing one or more of their natural teeth. Conventional methods of tooth replacement have not been able to address this problem adequately and a large percent of the population remains underserved. 3D printed tooth replacement from Arfona is a perfect option for this population.
Dental labs face many challenges in meeting this demand:
Labor pool for experienced dental technicians is shrinking
Current manufacturing methods are expensive and time consuming
3D printing of dental appliances is currently limited to prototypes and single use products using expensive, large format printers
Enter the Arfona philosophy: 3D manufacturing shouldn't be complicated, nor should it be cost prohibitive. Arfona manufactures the r.Pod Desktop 3D Printer, the world's first printer optimized for flexible partial dentures and appliances. The printer allows dental professionals to fabricate restorations in half the time and for half the cost.
