- Desktop Health also announced the launch of Flexcera™ Smile Ultra+ dental resin
Desktop Health, a healthcare business within Desktop Metal, Inc., committed to developing 3D printing solutions for personalized medicine, announced the commercial launch of the Einstein Series of Dental 3D Printers. This series represent a professional & high-precision family of 3D printers. Desktop Health also launched Flexcera™ Smile Ultra+, one of the strongest dental resins ever to receive FDA clearance for permanent use.
Dental professionals now have the tools they need to deliver accurate, 3D printable smiles customized to the individual patient for both permanent and temporary dental restorations on a wide range of applications thanks to this powerful combination of 3D printer and materials.
Einstein Series of Dental 3D Printers
The Einstein printer, which uses Digital Light Processing (DLP) technology, is designed with proprietary NanoFit 385 technology to ensure each application results in an accurate fit and natural-looking finish with stunning clarity. The Einstein printer now delivers exceptional accuracy and speeds up to 50 percent faster than its predecessor, thanks to HyperprintTM technology that harnesses the power of heat and a closed-loop software upgrade.
The Einstein series is available in a variety of 3D printing solutions to meet the needs of customers ranging from clinicians to labs. The Einstein printer, in conjunction with proprietary resin science and technology, is designed to provide the key features required for superior 3D printing: accuracy, speed, and versatility.
“The Einstein 3D printer, coupled with our next-generation Flexcera Smile Ultra+ resin, is a major breakthrough for the dental community. Combining advanced resin science with 3D printing technology delivers superior strength, aesthetics, and durability. A dentist can now print veneers, bridges, crowns, dentures, inlays, onlays and more in minutes. Beautiful, functional, same-day dental prosthetics with ceramic-like strength are now possible – with the added bonus of cutting patient waiting times from weeks to mere hours.”– Michael Jafar, President & CEO of Desktop Health
Three Einstein Series of Dental 3D Printers
- The Einstein is intended for general dentists and allows chairside printing;
- The Einstein Pro is intended for small dental labs and specialists; and
- The Einstein Pro XL is intended for high production dental labs and has the largest build envelope in the series.
Flexcera Smile Ultra+ Dental Resin
Flexcera Smile Ultra+, first introduced in 2020 as Flexcera™ Smile for temporary dental applications, is an FDA 510(k) cleared Class 2 medical device for permanent, printable dental restorations. To ensure ideal properties, it has been formulated with the strength of ceramic combined with long chain chemistry. Dental providers can now print same-day smiles, including crowns, bridges, veneers, full and partial dentures, when used in conjunction with Einstein 3D printers.
Flexcera Smile Ultra+ dental prosthetics have been shown to have a 43 percent better marginal fit when compared to a competitor, thanks to the power of NanoFit 385 technology.
Features of Flexcera Smile Ultra+ Dental Resins
- High fracture resistance, three times more resistant to fracture than select competitive resins;
- Moisture resistance to prevent staining or discoloration, two times more resistant than a leading competitive formulation; and
- An overall natural aesthetic that offers lifelike tooth translucency and a natural-looking smile, providing a perfect blend of comfort, strength and flexibility.
According to Dr. August de Oliveira, DDS, an innovator in same-day digital dentistry with a private practice in Encino, CA, “As a dental professional, I see first-hand how the personalization of 3D printing for healthcare is impacting my patients. Patients care about the procedures offered by their dentists, and many are now considering switching to a dentist who uses more advanced technology. For me, the combination of the Einstein 3D printer and Flexcera Smile Ultra+ resin will help this industry finally deliver applications with stunning clarity, a perfect, customized fit and an impressively natural-looking finish for models, dentures and everything in between.”
