A Swift transition to digital dentistry

14 March 2017

The Artemision Bronze is an ancient Greek sculpture that was recovered from the sea off Cape Artemision. It represents either Zeus or Poseidon and is slightly over life-size. Despite the uncertainty about what the statue represents, it is known that it was made using a process called lost-wax casting.

The process of lost-wax casting is still used today and hasn't changed much since ancient Greece. Commonly used in jewellery making, it is also a common manufacturing method in dentistry.

Albeit a time-honoured process, Swift Dental Group recently sourced a more accurate and efficient manufacturing method to use at its facility in Bolton, UK with the help of global engineering and scientific technologies company, Renishaw.
