3D Print Occlusal Guards and Splints

3D Print Occlusal Guards and Splints

Fabricate night guards in-office.

Digital Workflow
Pro 3D Printer

Provide splints and occlusal guards to help maintain the integrity of restorative and orthodontic work. Using biocompatible FDA-cleared materials, doctors can 3D print occlusal guards and splints in-office for only a few dollars in materials.

Provide rapid treatment for patients with lost or broken guards by simply reprinting from digital records without the need to retake impressions. The final fabricated appliances are attractively clear, strong, and durable.

  • Print up to 8 full-arch night guards or splints in under 1 hour
  • Estimated $3 in materials cost per nightguard printed
  • Final guard is clear, strong, and durable

Soft Splints

For a comfortable fit that provides both flexure and excellent resistance to wear, SprintRay users can 3D print splints and occlusal guards with the innovative KeySplint Soft resin. This material becomes flexible when heated, meaning it conforms perfectly to your patient’s anatomy. Despite its flexibility, it produces long-lasting splints and nightguards that can be easily polished clear.

With 3D printing in your office, produce soft splints for less than $10 per arch in materials cost and wow your patients by delivering the same- or next-day.

Using an intraoral scanner and dental CAD software or a digital lab, you can save time and money by printing  splints and occlusal guards in-office. Once you have the patient's digital splint model, simply reprint the patient's splint if it is lost or broken and have it ready to be picked up at the front desk.
