Return on Investment

3D printing surgical guides in-office allows you to rapidly deliver guided surgery at a very low cost. Most clinics break even on their investment in just a few months.
Profit Up To

$ 3,000

Per Case

When 3D printing even just a few full-arch surgical guides per month, mosts clinics break even on their investment after just two or three months compared to traditional manufacturing methods.

Printing can help clinics maximize their income streams and multiply investments in other digital technologies such as intraoral scanning. SprintRay Pro is capable of fabricating a wide array of appliances other than surgical guides, making it a highly versatile tool for almost every dental office.

In-office manufacturing costs listed include monthly equipment cost and digital design fee if applicable. Labor, materials, and consumables costs are not listed in this calculator. This calculator is for demonstrative purposes only. Actual experience may vary.

Digital Workflow Explained

3D Printing Surgical Guides

Using intraoral scan and optional CBCT data, you can use 3rd-party software to design and 3D print surgical guides in-office using SprintRay 3D printers. Once the surgical guide is printed, it needs to be washed and post-processed before use. Place guide sleeves into the printed part and sterilize in an autoclave.

SprintRay Surgical Guide 2

Accurate and distortion free implant guides

View Application
Read IFU
To take full advantage of guided implant surgery, it’s important to have a guide that resists fracture and distortion. SprintRay’s Surgical Guide 2 has higher flexural strength and flexural modulus than competing brands, plus comparably low viscosity for easy mixing.
  • Biocompatible, FDA-compliant material
  • Resists flex and breakage during use
  • Easy to mix compared to previous formulas


Higher flexural strength ensures that the guide does not break during use.

Dentis Surgical Guide
78 MPa


Higher flexural modulus prevents the guide from distorting, which can impact placement accuracy during the procedure.
