High-resolution 3D printing
EnvisionTEC Dental Applications Specialist Chris Kabot discusses EnvisionTEC’s E-Guard material, an FDA-approved biocompatible crystal clear material for the direct production or manufacturing of bite or night guards on the Perfactory® line of 3D Printers.
The final printed part, available in about 30 minutes, are durable and rigid for protecting teeth during wear. The results produced by combining E-Guard with EnvisionTEC technology are superior to traditional methods of manufacturing bite guards and night guards.
High-resolution 3D printing creates an extremely precise fit, with accuracy down to 50-100 microns. Finally, the cost of printing high-quality splints can be dramatically lower than traditional methods.
