SprintRay Inc., a global leader in digital dentistry and 3D printing solutions, announced that High Impact Denture Base, the first ceramic-infused 3D printing resins denture material for 3D fabrication and repair of full and partial removable dentures and baseplates, has received FDA 510(k) clearance.
These high-performance denture resins, designed to be used with High Impact Denture Teeth, shift the paradigm of digital dentistry with advancements in ceramic-infused 3D printing materials that deliver strong mechanical properties. The SprintRay workflow provides a seamless, in-office fabrication process for removable dentures by utilising High Impact Denture resins.
Denture demand is growing globally, and it is expected to reach $3.1 billion by 2032. Approximately 40 million adults in the United States are edentulous, meaning they are missing all of their teeth, and six million adults receive new dentures each year.
“SprintRay was founded on the promise of developing carefully curated 3D printing solutions with market-leading performance, and our high impact denture ecosystem is a key example of this commitment. We wanted to ensure that, unlike with first-generation 3D printed or legacy milled denture solutions, dental professionals won’t have to compromise on strength, longevity, or durability for in-office speed and efficiency. We sought to develop a solution that delivered on all fronts.”– Amir Mansouri, Ph.D., CEO and Co-Founder, SprintRay
Ceramic-Infused 3D Printing Resins with NanoFusion
SprintRay High Impact Base is the first ceramic-infused 3D printing denture material, filling a market need for a strong and durable denture material. SprintRay’s proprietary approach to dental chemistry, NanoFusion™, is used in the formulation of High Impact Base and Teeth resins. Materials created with NanoFusion™ have a unique ceramic composition and form dense polymer chains, resulting in dental prostheses with greater strength, longevity, and durability than competitors.
NanoFusion™ enables the optimal amount of ceramic to be infused into High Impact Denture Base and High Impact Denture Teeth to excel in fracture resistance and wear resistance, outperforming 3D printing and milled competitor materials on multiple measures.
On-Demand, Customized Denture Design Services
The SprintRay digital denture workflow was created to address common 3D printing issues and to provide a complete end-to-end scan-to-print solution that includes design. Patient data scans are easily transferred to SprintRay Cloud Design thanks to partnerships with leading dental scanner manufacturers. This cloud-based platform offers high-quality, professional design services. Once design requests are submitted, the design turnaround time is 48-72 hours, which is significantly faster than traditional denture workflows.
SprintRay now offers on-demand custom denture design services for as little as $75/arch, eliminating the need for dental computer-aided design (CAD) software. Cloud Design will provide dentists with three aesthetic options for full arch complete denture designs, giving them customised options to meet each patient’s unique aesthetic and financial needs.
A Fully Integrated Ecosystem
High Impact Denture resins are fully integrated with SprintRay’s industry-leading 3D printing ecosystem, which includes the Pro S 3D printer and advanced ProCure 2 and Pro Wash/Dry systems, allowing dentists to print a full denture in just 2 hours. Furthermore, this streamlined workflow for producing removable dentures provides patients with optimal results in as little as two visits.
Dr. Andrew Johnson, “The new SprintRay High Impact Denture Base and Teeth are a huge leap forward in the strength, durability, and longevity of the denture solution I can provide my patients. With High Impact Denture Base and teeth resin in my practice, I now have the combined value of high impact materials without the challenge of curing and post processing two separate, independent materials. I can produce durable, long-lasting, and beautiful dentures in much less time than traditional methods.”
