Desktop Health, a healthcare business within Desktop Metal, has announced a new series of products for dental applications. Named after one of the greatest physicists of all time, the Einstein™ series reaffirms the company’s commitment to develop 3D printing solutions for personalized medicine.
The new portfolio includes a high-precision family of 3D printers designed for dental professionals, and Flexcera™ Smile Ultra+, a strong dental resin that has already received FDA clearance for permanent use.
The 3D printers include the Einstein, designed for general dentists, enabling chairside printing; the Einstein Pro, designed for small dental labs and specialists; and the Einstein Pro XL designed for high production dental labs offering the largest build envelope within the series.
With speeds up to 50 percent faster than its predecessor, the Einstein 3D printer leverages a combination of powerful technologies to deliver the most “accurate fit and natural-looking finish with stunning clarity”. They include the Digital Light Processing (DLP) technology, the proprietary NanoFit 385 technology and the Hyperprint™ technology to ensure the print benefits from the power of heat and a closed-loop software upgrade.
“The Einstein 3D printer, coupled with our next-generation Flexcera Smile Ultra+ resin, is a major breakthrough for the dental community,” said Michael Jafar, President & CEO of Desktop Health. “Combining advanced resin science with 3D printing technology delivers superior strength, aesthetics, and durability. A dentist can now print veneers, bridges, crowns, dentures, inlays, onlays and more in minutes. Beautiful, functional, same-day dental prosthetics with ceramic-like strength are now possible – with the added bonus of cutting patient waiting times from weeks to mere hours.”
As for the resin, it was first introduced in 2020 as Flexcera™ Smile for temporary dental applications. The next-generation Flexcera Smile Ultra+ is described as an FDA 510(k) cleared Class 2 medical device for permanent, printable dental restorations. It has been formulated with the strength of ceramic coupled with long chain chemistry to ensure ideal properties. When used in tandem with the Einstein 3D printers, dental providers can now print same-day smiles, including crowns, bridges, veneers, full and partial dentures, the company says in a press release.
According to the company, the new resin delivers high fracture resistance, three times more resistant to fracture than select competitive resins; moisture resistance to prevent staining or discoloration, two times more resistant than a leading competitive formulation; and an overall natural aesthetic that offers lifelike tooth translucency and a natural-looking smile, providing a perfect blend of comfort, strength and flexibility.
