3D Systems is Making Full Jaw Reconstruction a One Day Job

3D Systems announced today the launch of Jaw in a Day®, the latest addition to its VSP® (Virtual Surgical Planning) Reconstruction product line. Enabled by 3D Systems’ healthcare expertise and proprietary digital-to-physical workflow, this patient-specific process enables surgeons to perform a full jaw reconstruction in a single surgery. This groundbreaking capability could spare patients from months of costly, painful and disruptive medical treatment.

Traditional dental rehabilitation requires multiple surgeries and persistent care over a 6-12 month period. This pattern of procedures often results in patients missing teeth, which introduces a variety of adverse aesthetic, functional, and psychological effects to the patient. This can in turn interfere with patients’ working and social lives throughout the course of treatment.
