SHINING 3D’s Solution for Splint Treatment
In the past, the splint was usually made by hand through a series of detailed steps. This often caused discomfort and nausea for the patients due to physical impressions. The post-processing of thermoforming splints was also done manually. Typically, it took around 100 minutes to produce a splint for clinical use. The entire process was more time-consuming and required a lot of manual labour. Moreover, there was a greater need to work with messy materials. SHINING 3D offers a comprehensive digital solution for splints, transforming daily practice workflows:
- Digital Intraoral Scanning: The Aoralscan 3 Wireless intraoral scanner accurately and swiftly captures intraoral data, eliminating the need for uncomfortable physical impressions.
- Effortless Design with CreSplint: CreSplint simplifies the design of night guards and retainers, taking less than a minute to generate precise designs.
- 3D Printing: Utilizing AccuFab-L4D or AccuFab-D1s printers, digital design files are seamlessly translated into physical splints.
- Automated Post-Processing: FabWash and FabCure 2 automate the removal of printed splints from the platform and the elimination of residual resins, minimizing manual labour.
- Streamlined Workflow: The streamlined process enhances work efficiency, reduces time & labour, and facilitates patient data retention and tracking.
