Digital technology that combines intraoral scanners and 3D printers provides a faster, better and more affordable means for creating an exact replica of a patient’s mouth. Advanced digital labs like Georgia-based Specialty Appliances can deliver high-quality orthodontic appliances in less time and create dental models at lower cost than the use of traditional stone models made from dental impressions.
Specialty Appliances, a digital orthodontic laboratory, uses Stratasys 3D printers to help manufacture these invisible retainers.
“Since we began leveraging Stratasys 3D printing technology, we’ve experienced faster turnarounds, better capabilities and a vibrant, growing business.”
