Dentists are increasingly choosing to produce night guards and retainers with 3D printing because it provides a better experience for patients, simplifies the manufacturing process, and accelerates turnaround time:
- Better Patient Experience: Dentists use an intraoral scanner to gather information to create an STL file for dental 3D printing services.
- Accelerate Turnaround Time: Night Guards and Splints can be created in less than an hour.
- Simplify the Manufacturing Process: Eliminates the use of molds and thermoplastic sheets.

Why Bring 3D Printed Retainers Into Dental Labs and Practices?
Digital dentistry workflows have included 3D printers since the late 1990s. Dental professionals saw the technology’s potential to create custom oral appliances at a rapid pace. However, the size and cost of early 3D printers prevented most dental labs and practices from adopting them for their operations. Now, material and hardware advancements have made 3D…
Five Benefits of Using a 3D Printing Dental Lab
Today, lab/practice partnerships are more beneficial with the accessibility of 3D printers. Advanced 3D printing solutions produce devices with a faster turnaround time than traditional and even legacy 3D printing methods. The innovative resins and resin-printing techniques used by modern 3D printers offer industry-leading strength, accuracy, and transparency leading to better end products.
How to Develop High-Quality Night Guards and Retainers With 3D Printing
3D printing is a viable manufacturing method for volume and customized production in a number of industries, including footwear, aerospace engineering, and dentistry. Used for the last 35 years, 3D printing eliminates several steps from the traditional production method, significantly accelerating development without compromising product quality. 3D printing night guards and retainers offers several benefits for patients and dentists, making it increasingly the preferred method for developing dental devices.
