3D Printed Dental Surgical Guides
Implant Surgery with Better Clinical Outcomes Made Affordable
CBCT, virtual placement planning, and surgical guides have become the standard of dental care to increase the accuracy of implant placements, decrease risks, and improve clinical results.
The Form 2 3D printer by Formlabs offers high precision, reliability, and streamlined user experience at an affordable price for dental labs and practices. Dental professionals worldwide have successfully completed more than 100,000 guided oral surgeries using guides printed on the Form 2 with Dental SG Resin.
The Digital Workflow for Dental Surgical Guides
3D Printing Surgical Guides with the Form 2
Dental Surgical Guides Printed Fast and Efficiently
The Form 2, powered by stereolithography (SLA), has a large build plate allowing users to do small quick batches or full build plates for unattended production.
|Parts Per Build||Print Time at 100 Microns|
|29 Quarter Arch Surgical Guides||3 hr|
|1 Quarter Arch Surgical Guid||44 min|
|8 Full Arch Surgical Guides||3 h 30 min|
|1 Full Arch Surgical Guide||1 h 19 min|
Low Cost, Fast Return on Investment
It has to make financial sense before bringing 3D printing into your dental practice or laboratory. With the Form 2 the return on investment is incredibly attractive even for a few guides a month.
|Print Cost||Form 2|
|Full Arch Surgical Guide||$3—$5|
|Quarter Arch Surgical Guide||$1.5—$2.5|
