Patient Tip of the Day

Did you ever hear the axiom “you can’t be a little bit pregnant?” In other words, someone either is or is not expecting. There is no in between.The same is true for most dental disease. One can have early or isolated periodontal disease, or tooth decay that is very shallow or very deep. But the fact is, the disease is present, and it needs to be addressed and arrested regardless of the stage it is in when we find it.

Applying new technologies: Solidscape's D66+ and D76+ wax printers

The preXacto™ series of compact, benchtop 3D waxup printers are designed to allow small- and medium-sized labs to produce quality wax structures for pressing and casting with a short return on investment. The basic D66+ unit is capable of producing up to 750 units/month, while the larger D76+ model doubles production to 1,500 units/month. The waxup printers incorporate SCP® (Smooth Curvature Printing) technology to enhance the surface finish (5,000-dpi XY resolution), speed, and production yields by increasing throughput performance. The printers use the proprietary DentaCast® build material (in combination with the Indura® Fill support material), which is formulated to provide rapid melt-out with no residual ash and no thermal expansion, while also enhancing material strength and handling. Both can receive open-architecture STL or SLC design files.

Features

  • High production yields (D66+ = 20 units/16 hours; D76+ = 40 units/16 hours)
  • Can print crown and bridge substructures, pressable overlay forms, and denture frameworks
  • Short return on investment
  • Small footprint to fit on benchtop
  • Allows unattended operation for up to 72 hours
  • Auto status monitoring, fault detection, and restart of build from point of interruption
  • Open-architecture design
  • Build material burns out cleanly
  • Adjustable build layer thickness (25.4 to 63.5 μ)
