SprintRay Flexible NightGuards

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 NightGuard Flex resin. This material becomes flexible at body temperature, meaning it conforms perfectly to your patient’s anatomy. Despite this flexibility, it produces long-lasting nightguards that are aesthetic and easy to clean.

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