Desktop Health, a subsidiary of Desktop Metal, has unveiled an enhanced version of its Flexcera resin called Flexcera Base Ultra+. This resin is specifically tailored for 3D printing gingiva, which is crucial in the production of full and partial removable dentures. What sets this new formulation apart is its impressive strength, being 50% stronger than industry standards, and its remarkable resistance to deformation, boasting a 70% improvement. With these enhanced properties, dentists can now create thinner and more durable designs, ultimately providing better long-term comfort and fit for patients. Furthermore, the Flexcera Base Ultra+ is resistant to staining, ensuring that the dentures maintain their aesthetic appeal over time. When used in conjunction with the Flexcera Smile Ultra+, which is used to 3D print teeth, the result is full and partial dentures that not only offer strength and comfort but also a highly realistic appearance.
The dental industry has been increasingly adopting digital workflows, and with the aging population, there is a growing demand for restorative solutions. Desktop Health’s Flexcera resin family perfectly meets these demands. The Flexcera Base Ultra+ resin, when used with the Einstein and the Einstein Pro XL printing systems, enables faster printing speeds without compromising quality. For instance, the Einstein Pro XL can produce approximately 21 Flexcera Base Ultra+ denture arches in just 90 minutes, significantly reducing post-processing time and enhancing workflow efficiency. By addressing the need for a firmer final product and providing popular shades, Desktop Health demonstrates its commitment to meeting the demands of the marketplace.
