Key Benefits

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:

  1. Better Patient Experience: Dentists use an intraoral scanner to gather information to create an STL file for dental 3D printing services.
  2. Accelerate Turnaround Time: Night Guards and Splints can be created in less than an hour.
  3. Simplify the Manufacturing Process: Eliminates the use of molds and thermoplastic sheets.

Dental Customer Success - Wu Orthodontics

"The speed, consistency and value that Luxcreo's 3d printers and resin provides is outstanding!  My previous printers had numerous recurring issues along with a 20 percent misprint rate that was unsustainable for a high volume orthodontic practice.  Working with Luxcreo over the last several years has been an absolute dream!"
