Digitizing and computerization plays a major role in the manufacturing of dental implants. However, dental implants are manufactured by conventional methods and due to the advancements in computer aided engineering and software applications are a important part of the upsurge of technical change that has taken digital manufacturing today. Dentists and patients have equally set high requirements on quality, material, precision and cost so providing digital solution to a dental doctors is a real challenge. This paper focusses on unique and fully digital procedure for the design and manufacturing of dental implants (root) by means of Fused Deposition Method (FDM). Autodesk Inventor 3D CAD software is used for product design, rendering and simulation of dental implant. For ease in manufacturing a customized implant design is provided to the dentists.
