Primeprint Splint ST and Primeprint Splint SF 3D printing resins
All dental practices and dental labs looking to fabricate patient-specific nightguards and splints for a variety of treatments that fit precisely and provide a high level of biocompatibility
Demand for these nightguards and splints in dental practices is increasing, especially for patients with bruxism. From now on, nightguards can be manufactured directly with Primeprint Solution. Thus, clinicians take advantage of the high degree of automation from the Dentsply Sirona 3D printing system.
The new resins are designed to be used in the Primeprint 3D printing system and can be integrated into a variety of workflows. Dental professionals can choose to handle the design themselves using inLab CAD Software, order the design from DS Core Create, or order it from their preferred dental lab. With the new innovative Primeprint Material Unit Type S and an excellent set of materials, the new splint solution reduces much of the manual work that would otherwise be necessary, such as time-consuming extensive polishing. According to the manufacturer, the results are shiny after the automated post process and can be easily detached from the support structures.
Primeprint Splint ST and Primeprint Splint SF resins allow printing with a thin wall thickness starting at 0.8 mm. The resins provide different degrees of hardness and flexibility and can be selected according to the indication and the patient’s needs. To provide optimal patient wear comfort, they are free of MMA, THF-MA and TPO, allowing a neutral taste and scent. When using DS Core Create design services, the splint design is provided within the turnaround time of 6 hours as a ready-to-print file. This allows for immediate production, which makes it easy to delegate the workflow to staff members.
