3d printed orthodontic appliance

3D Printing Indirect Bonding Trays

Fabricate flexible orthodontic appliances for speedy bracket placement.

Shorten the length of bracket placement appointments, decreasing chair time and increasing patient satisfaction. Ensure that orthodontic brackets are precisely placed in their planned location.

These flexible orthodontic appliances enable an orthodontist to load an entire arch of brackets into the tray, then quickly transfer those brackets onto the patient’s teeth. The transparency of the appliance allows the clinician to use a curing light to cement the entire arch of brackets simultaneously.

  • Print up to 4 full-arch bonding trays in less than 1 hour with SprintRay 3D printers, at a cost of less than $6.00 each.

Reliable and Accurate Placement of Brackets

Indirect bonding trays allow for the speedy placement of a full-arch of brackets simultaneously. The pre-printed apparatus also means that each bracket gets placed exactly where it should be, removing the guesswork.

Workflow Overview

Using an intraoral scanner and a CBCT, you can use 3rd party software to design and produce indirect bonding trays in-office using SprintRay 3D printers. When printing, ensure that the intaglio side of the bonding tray is face-up so that no supports generate in difficult-to-reach places, obstructing the placement of the trays.
