Formlabs has this week introduced a new resin to its range in the form of its new Biocompatible Resin which has been specifically designed to enable researchers, doctors and engineers to create incredibly precise tools for surgical applications.
The range of Formlabs desktop 3D printers can now use the Dental SG Resin which has been designed for specifically printing surgical guides used in implant surgery. Check out the video below to learn more
Dávid Lakatos, Head of Product at Formlabs explains more about the new Biocompatible Resin
When practitioners and researchers have the ability and access to develop incredibly precise tools for surgical applications, it opens up a new range of possibilities for the dental industry and for the medical science industry at large,” said
Formlabs is leading the way in helping to advance patient care by introducing solutions that enable personalized surgical planning and mass customization. Material innovation, like with the introduction of Dental SG, is a key driver in growing the adoption of digital dentistry powered by 3D printing.
Dr. Scherer explains :
The addition of Dental SG Resin is a game-changer. Dental SG is poised to dramatically improve patient outcome of surgical procedures by making implant surgery faster, more precise, and ultimately more comfortable for the patient. Direct printing of surgical guides has traditionally required larger-scale 3D printers that are beyond the expense and comfort level of most dental laboratories and clinicians. The introduction of Dental SG Resin allows for benchtop surgical guide printing in dental offices and smaller dental labs.
