Abstract:   (398 Views)
Introduction: Body defects impact well-being, necessitating efficient prosthetic techniques. This report explores integrating CAD/CAM technology for auricular prostheses, emphasizing a digital approach.
Material & Methods: The plan involved irreversible hydrocolloid impressions, generating a digital resin model through an indirect scanner. Traditional molding and 3D printing combined for pattern formation. The mold's investment, fabrication, and coloring used intrinsic and extrinsic painting.
Results: CAD/CAM showcased enhanced compatibility and aesthetics. The digital resin model improved adaptability, streamlining production, and accelerating the wax try-in process. Patient satisfaction during follow-ups validated the prosthesis success.
Conclusion: Exploring auricular prosthesis advancements via digital technology, particularly the digital resin model, demonstrated transformative outcomes. This approach not only enhances adaptability and aesthetics but also expedites production, promising a seamless and time-efficient restoration of ear aesthetics for individuals.
Keywords: Additive Manufacturing, Prosthetics, Silicones, Acrylics, Biocompatible Adhesives
