This is a complete 'Upper' (Maxillary) Denture. The teeth are three separate files.
The purpose of the teeth being separate files is that we are now able to print dentures using commercial SLA printers. We use different resins for the base and teeth. (Milling is another option)
I've provided the sample file we use in the lab since I've found proper dental STL's are scarce on the web.
Please let me know if you'd be interested in more professionally designed dental prosthetics and I will gladly upload them for your own knowledge and experimentation.
Not sure how it would turn out using FDM compared to SLA but I've no doubt that you can print your very own decorative Denture for your classroom, office, or house.
DISCLAIMER: DENTURES ARE DESIGNED EXACTLY FOR ONE PERSON'S MOUTH. THIS DENTURE WILL NOT FIT YOU. IT IS FOR EDUCATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY.
These parts were printed on DLP SLA printers. I do not have settings nor have I attempted to print this using FDM. For FDM I would place supports on the "bottom" of the Denture base (that part that would touch your tissue) and place supports on the "tops" of the teeth (occlusal surface) so as not to alter the mating surfaces.
Once all parts have been printed and sanded, apply a small amount of CA Glue (super glue) into each socket of the Denture base. Then insert the sections of Teeth and apply pressure until the glue sets up.
We use CAD software designed for dental applications. We use a desktop scanner to create a digital model from impressions sent to us by Doctors. We can then design prosthetics using that representation.
