SprintRay has announced the launch of its brand-new 3D printing resins for denture bases and teeth, which utilize NanoFusion technology for optimal durability and fracture resistance.
SprintRay has announced FDA 510(k) clearance for its High Impact Denture Base, a ceramic-infused denture material indicated for 3D manufacturing and repair of full and partial dentures and baseplates. Used in tandem with High Impact Denture Teeth, these denture resins are designed to deliver strong mechanical properties to guarantee strength and durability in dentures, according to a press release from SprintRay. It is the first ceramic-infused 3D printing material, formulated using SprintRay’s proprietary NanoFusion™ chemistry. This grants them a novel ceramic composition, forming dense polymer chains for protheses with strength, longevity, and durability, per the press release. NanoFusion is also said to suspend the optimal amount of ceramic for strong, fracture resistant dentures.
“SprintRay was founded on the promise of developing carefully curated 3D printing solutions with market-leading performance, and our high impact denture ecosystem is a key example of this commitment,” SprintRay co-founder and CEO, Amir Mansouri, PhD, says in the press release. “We wanted to ensure that, unlike with first-generation 3D printed or legacy milled denture solutions, dental professionals won’t have to compromise on strength, longevity, or durability for in-office speed and efficiency. We sought to develop a solution that delivered on all fronts.”
SprintRay is now able to provide custom denture design services with the High Impact Denture Base and Teeth paired with SprintRay Cloud Design. With a design turnaround time of 2 to 3 days, SprintRay is offering an efficient, integrated workflow for dental labs. The new High Impact resins are also fully integrated with the SprintRay 3D printing ecosystem, enabling full denture prints in less than 2 hours.
Combining these resins with SprintRay’s existing systems will allow dental labs to craft dentures for patients efficiently and effectively, according to early user Dr Andrew Johnson.
“The new SprintRay High Impact Denture Base and Teeth are a huge leap forward in the strength, durability, and longevity of the denture solution I can provide my patients,” Dr Johnson says in the press release. “With High Impact Denture Base and Teeth Resin in my practice, I now have the combined value of high impact materials without the challenge of curing and post processing 2 separate, independent materials. I can produce durable, long-lasting, and beautiful dentures in much less time than traditional methods.”
