Stratasys has recently introduced TrueDent – the company’s first monolithic, full-color 3D printed permanent dentures solution. The TrueDent resin enables labs to create permanent, natural-looking gums with accurate tooth structure, shade, and translucency – in one continuous print.

TrueDent is an FDA-cleared (Class II) dental resin made specifically for the fabrication of dental appliances, including removable dentures. The resin was developed to be printed exclusively with the Stratasys J5 DentaJet 3D printer and GrabCAD Print software platform. The complete solution will allow dental labs to scale manufacturing by simplifying workflow and reducing processing time for dentures, while achieving a personalized, aesthetically-considered dental appliance.

TrueDent is designed to eliminate several barriers for patients and laboratories by reducing ‘chair time’ for office visits, measurements, fittings, and adjustments; offering a high fidelity match between scan, design, and fit; offering scalable and digital solutions that are repeatable, and can provide consistent production of accurate, well-fitting dentures; and increasing efficiency through streamlined workflow, with less time between scan and delivery.

“Until now, printed dentures and appliances had to be designed and manufactured in multiple parts and bonded together,” said Frank Acosta, Owner of AA Dental Design. “The TrueDent solution, utilizing Stratasys’ systems and software takes a lot of that stress out. It simplifies the process, lowers the costs, and allows for dentures and temporaries to be produced much faster, achieving incredible aesthetics. We can now expand our prosthetic service printing multi-colored personalized appliance at scale.”

“This new solution will be transformative for the dental industry, and we believe it will help our customers significantly reduce the time and cost of producing dentures and temporaries,” said Ronen Lebi, Vice President of Dental at Stratasys. “Stratasys continues to push the boundaries of digital dentistry leveraging our portfolio of advanced 3D printing technologies, including hardware, resins, and software to deliver disruptive solutions that make a difference.”

TrueDent resin is patent-pending, currently only available in the US, and only compatible with the Stratasys J5 DentaJet printer. The material will be fully unveiled at LMT Lab Day Chicago, February 23-25, 2023.
