Additive manufacturing is disrupting a variety of industries and enabling the design and production of new and improved products. In the dental market, EAP ® Abutments is using a combination of additive manufacturing and milling technology to create thin-walled dental abutments that at one time were next to impossible to produce or not economically feasible. Additive manufacturing is enabling EAP Abutments  to create a new group of products through 3D printing.

Join this webinar to learn from Dr. Mario Kern how he uses additive manufacturing for thin-walled dental EAP® Abutments.
