Maximize Implant Profitability: How to Design and 3D Print Surgical Guides In-House

Watch Now

Traditionally milled or lab-fabricated surgical guides can cost hundreds of dollars, and upwards of $1,000 for more complex cases, but dental practices or labs using in-house 3D printing are producing guides for just $2–5 each.

By adopting a digital workflow, dental professionals worldwide have successfully cut costs without reducing quality, and have completed more than 100,000 guided oral surgeries using guides 3D printed on the Form 2 with Dental SG Resin. In this webinar, we team up with 3Shape, a global leader in 3D scanning and dental CAD/CAM software, to showcase a user-friendly, affordable digital workflow you can bring in-house today.

Walk through the full digital workflow for designing and 3D printing dental surgical guides with Hermogenes Angeles, Implant Studio specialist at 3Shape, and Sam Wainwright, dental product manager at Formlabs.

What you will learn:

  • How to import and set up a case in 3Shape Implant Studio, and what specific types of surgical guides and sleeves are possible
  • The case approval process for the surgical guide provider and prescribing doctor
  • How to prepare guides for printing using print preparation and nesting software
  • Best practices for 3D printing surgical guides, and tips for how to wash, post-cure, and post-process 3D printed parts
