Dentsply Sirona, a leading dental products and technologies manufacturer, has expanded its Primeprint Solution with the introduction of new resins: Primeprint Splint ST and Primeprint Splint SF. These resins are FDA and CE cleared and cater to the needs of dental professionals seeking to create patient-specific nightguards and splints, which are in high demand for patients with bruxism. The new resins offer precise fits, high biocompatibility, and instill confidence in dental practices.
The Primeprint Solution, combined with the automation in the Dentsply Sirona 3D printing system, provides numerous advantages for manufacturing nightguards. The Primeprint Material Unit Type S and application-specific print processes reduce manual work and eliminate the need for time-consuming polishing. Additionally, the new resins offer a high gloss result after the printing process and are easily detachable from support structures.
The Primeprint Splint ST and Primeprint Splint SF resins offer flexibility in terms of wall thickness and hardness. With a starting thickness of 0.8 mm, these resins can be printed with thin walls. Furthermore, they are free of MMA, THF-MA, and TPO2, ensuring optimal patient wear comfort with no taste or scent.
Dental professionals can integrate the new resins into the Primeprint 3D printing system, allowing for flexibility in their workflows. They can design in-house using inLab Software, order from DS Core Create, or choose their preferred dental lab. The streamlined workflows and fast turnaround time of DS Core Create design services make production efficient and allow for easy delegation of the workflow to practice staff.
The introduction of the Primeprint Splint ST and Primeprint Splint SF resins represents a significant step in advancing automated 3D printing in dental practices and laboratories. Dental 3D printing is increasingly attractive for fabricating non-permanent removable applications such as splints, surgical guides, and models, complementing existing methods.
Dr. Meena Barsoum, a dentist from Arlington, USA, who has used the new resins, appreciates the expanded indications offered by 3D printing. She highlights the ease of removing support structures after the automated post-processing, as well as the wearing comfort and aesthetics appreciated by her patients.
Max Milz, group vice president connected technology solutions at Dentsply Sirona, emphasizes the significance of this innovation in advancing automated 3D printing and its suitability for fabricating non-permanent removable applications.
