Whip Mix introduces Dentca digital denture materials, reportedly the first 3D-printed resins to receive FDA clearance. Their physical properties and biocompatibility pass FDA requirements and are said to give the printed denture properties very similar to conventional dentures. The results are fewer dentist visits, predictable fit, reprintable data files, lower costs and excellent intraoral denture performance.
The system, available from Whip Mix and validated by Dentca, is comprised of the Asiga Max or Pro2 3D printer, the UViTRON UV Curing Unit, and Dentca 3D printable resins, including an ivory-colored try-in material, tooth materials in VITA shades A1, A2, A3, A3.5, B1 & B2, and denture base materials in original pink, light pink, reddish pink and dark pink shades.
