Stratasys today announced that U.S. dental labs Posca Brothers Dental Laboratory, Artisan Dental Laboratory, and Express Dental Laboratory are among the many dental labs across the U.S. that have quickly adopted the TrueDent™ 3D printed dentures solution from the Company.

“The aesthetics of TrueDent dentures are stunning compared to traditional dentures. The final product will ‘wow’ patients in the market for traditional dentures and partials,” said Justan Koch, President of Artisan Dental Laboratory in Portland, Ore. “Additionally, in an environment where dental labs are facing staffing challenges, Stratasys’ dental solutions provides us with technical support for new parts, which typically arrive the next day, versus weeks using conventional methods. This efficiency is proving invaluable to our dental team.”

These dental labs’ reaction underscored the impressive accuracy of the printed products and highlighted that the Stratasys-printed dentures exhibited similar or better wear properties than competing resin denture solutions. In addition, they all echoed that working with Stratasys made it easy to produce and reprint dentures, using the Stratasys’ J5 DentaJet 3D printer. This system enables precise denture reproduction of both geometry and shades long after they initial appliance was first created.

Stratasys TrueDent is a light-curable resin indicated for the fabrication of dental appliances including removable full and partial dentures, denture bases, denture teeth, bridges, crowns, inlays, onlays, and veneers in dental laboratories. The material is an alternative to traditional heat-curable and auto polymerizing resins and is intended exclusively for professional dental work. The resin was developed to be printed exclusively with the Stratasys J5 DentaJet and the GrabCAD™ software platform. TrueDent resin is patent pending and currently available only in the U.S.
