3D Printed Surgical Drill Guide: Case Study


The CBCT scan was combined with an intra-oral scan on the Blue Sky Plan software. The tooth positions were planned and then the implant positions were decided.

Dr Bill Schaeffer, Dental Surgeon, The Implant Centre, Hove and Jon Dolding, Dental Technician, Ceramic Designs, Hove.

Always at the forefront of dental technology in the UK, Laboratory manager Jon Dolding from Ceramic Design Studio in Hove, UK was asked by his client Dr Bill Schaeffer (The Implant Centre) to manufacture a surgical guide using a 3D printer. Here is a classic case where guided surgery has been indicated; we decided to print the surgical guide using the Asiga Pro2."

The surgical drill guide was designed and exported as an stl file.

This was then simply imported into the Asiga composer software that comes with the printer and the print supports were generated.

Asiga 3D printers, Otoflash G171 flashcure unit & Detax Freeprint resins are available from Bracon Ltd. Post processing was then carried out using a high grade isopropyl (99.5%) in conjunction with an ultrasonic bath unit, the residual isopropyl was removed with an airline and the print left to dry. The material that was used is a long term biocompatible resin and as such, this particular material must be cured in an inert gas atmosphere to validate its classification as a class IIa medical device.

In this case it was cured with an Otoflash G171 flashcure unit to fully remove the inhibition layer from the resin.

The surgical drill guide was printed with Bracon's Asiga Pro2 (385nm) DLP 3D printer, which is an open material system. In this case using Detax Freeprint splint resin, which is suitable for DLP 3D printers with a 385nm UV light source.

This was the plan; two 3-unit bridges with the distal implants squeezed into those little nuggets of bone. This results in a superior finish which, fully hardens the resin and leaves no tackiness or residual resin whatsoever. This method also leaves the finished article opaque and free from the discolouration that you get from other printers/resins available. The titanium drill sleeves were then inserted manually



Radiographs of the placed implants were taken to verify that they had been placed as required. Once the surgical guide was finished, it was transferred to the surgery and tried in the mouth.

Apparently the guide just “clunked� down into position very definitively, so that there was no doubt about the seating. The print precision avoided the need for any adjustments to the surgical guide. The surgeon then placed the fixtures and healing caps In conclusion, surgical drill guides are an ideal solution for tricky implant placement and guided surgery speeds up implant placement time, with predictable results. Note the cut-out windows, which we integrated into the design to allow the surgeon to confirm the guide was fully seated.

The final radiograph shows one of the bridges in place
