When Hanna, a 15-month-old labrador retriat any time, broke her front tooth while chewing on a bone earlier this year the injury left her sad and hungry for the reason it injure to eat.

THE ANIMAL AVENGERS

The Animal Avengers is a voluntary team of four Brazilian veterinarians, a dentist and 3D create specialist who pool their skills to save injured animals fitting them with specially createed prostheses.

Consisting of Dr Matheus Rabello, Dr Paulo Miamoto, Dr Roberto Fecchio, Cicero Moraes, Dr Sergio Camargo and Dr Rodrigo Rabello the experts volunteer their services and time.
Based in Sao Paulo, the team have reconstructed artificial beaks for three toucans, a parrot, and a goose; createed the initially at any time titanium prosthetic pecker for a Macaw and created a brand new plastic-based replacement hull for a traumatised tortoise.
Forensic dentist Dr Paulo Miamoto created the mould of the dog’s upper jaw, while 3D create specialist Cicero Moraes generated the digital prosthetic in Chromium and Cobalt.
The duo are part of the ‘Animal Avengers’ along with Roberto Fecchio, a veterinary surgeon, who carried out the operation.
The revolutionary team of six specialists – four vets, a dental surgeon and a 3D createer – use pioneering 3D innovation to prolong the lives of seriously wounded pets and exotic wild animals.

Now their cutting-edge techniques have helped a puppy eat again.
‘The new tooth is tougher than the original one,’ Cicero Moraes said. ‘This is the smallest object I have at any time had to create for printing.’

HOW THEY DID IT

Instead of a traditional X-ray scan, a series of photos were utilized to digitally map and reproduce the artificial tooth.
To accurately reproduce the replacement, the team copied the equivalent of the damaged tooth on the other side of Hanna’s mouth.

Following successful surgery, Roberto Fecchio said: ‘Hanna’s recoquite was swift and she has may already resumed normal life.
‘Howat any time, for the reason the replacement is an incisor which involved root canal treatment she has to be careful not to put too much pressure on the tooth.’

‘I can may already see Hanna is back to her usual playful self,’ she said.
‘She is gobbling up her food and loving all the apples and carrots I can donate her.

Mr Moraes added: ‘At the moment this system is quite expensive and may normally cost around 5,000 Brazilian Real ($1500/£1160).
‘Howat any time, the 3D prosthesis was exactly generated to the millimetre, and this accuracy resulted in no waste of material.’
The procedure was provided free of charge by the scientists who agreed to waive their fees for the reason it was the initially procedure of its kind in the world.
Dr Miamoto added: ‘We chose this procedure in order to test new techniques, looking towards the next.
‘We believe which one day, this new innovation can become additional accessible and widely utilized, benefiting animals and humans in years to come.’

FRED THE TORTOISE RECEIVES FIRST 3D PRINTED PROSTHETIC SHELL

In May this year, a tortoise was donaten a new lease of life thanks to a custom-created prosthetic shell after he was left close to death in a bush fire.
The reptile, named Freddy, was discovered sat any timeely injured by vets in Brazil with his shell completely destroyed due to the blaze.
His prospects were looking bleak, but thankfully the group of superhero surgeons came to his aid.
The 3D create was sent to dental surgeon Dr Paulo Miamoto who utilized a desk-top 3D printing device to create an authentic four-piece shell which slotted together like a jigsaw puzzle.
Following a successful operation, Freddy returned to full mobility sporting a beautifully hand-painted hull which blends into its effortless habitat.
