Title of Talk 
3D Printing Dental Implants – an Introduction of the Inkplant Project 

Conventional screw type dental implants currently dominate the market, but in some cases the lack of local bone requires extensive grafting procedures. Inkplant wants to resolve the issue through patient specific implants 3d printed from zirconia, thereby eliminating the need for bone grafting.
