This partnership aims to make a digital dental workflow that best serves both patient and practice.
Digital dentistry company SprintRay has announced a global distribution partnership with implant restorations company Nobel Biocare. This partnership will allow Nobel Biocare to become an authorized distributor of SprintRay’s 3D printing technology.
Combining Nobel Biocare’s implant solutions with SprintRay’s 3D printing system is said to create an effective and efficient workflow for practices, according to SprintRay’s Chief Growth Officer, John Cox.
“SprintRay is excited to introduce our industry leading, end-to-end 3D printing solution to Nobel Biocare's extensive global network of dental professionals,” Cox said in a press release from the companies. “This partnership extends SprintRay’s reach and penetration into implant dentistry – one of the industry's fastest growing segments."
This partnership aims to reduce delivery time and to place implants and guided surgery templates in same-day procedures, according to Kenneth Parrish, DMD, PhD.
“Practicing dentists have always had to manage the competing interests of speed versus accuracy and quality,” Dr Parrish said in the press release. “As the only 3D printing manufacturer dedicated to dental applications, SprintRay understands the challenges faced in day-to-day practice. Time consuming emergency work-ins to your schedule can now be replaced by the touch of a button to easily and cost effectively create and deliver a replacement restoration, saving chair time and eliminating patient frustration.”
As a part of this partnership, SprintRay also released the curing system ProCure 2, which enables same-day placement of implants.
