The dental market is an ideal environment for 3D printing as there is so much customization that needs to go into prosthodontic and orthodontic devices. Each person’s mouth and teeth are unique, thus making each prosthodontic device unique and customized. 3D printing allows for customization on the spot without the need for costly and long lead time molds.
In order to ensure the highest quality 3D printed prosthodontic and orthodontic devices, you need to make sure you post-cure them. The CUREbox UV Post-Cure Chamber is an ideal choice for your post-cure requirements. Properly cured 3D printed parts have mechanical properties far superior to those that are improperly cured and in the dental world, strength and integrity of the device is important.
The CUREbox is versatile and can be used for single or multi-part runs. It is big enough to handle your prosthodontic and orthodontic needs, but small enough to fit into most any dental facility or lab.
In order for 3D printed materials to be biocompatible they need to reach full polymer conversion or polymerization. The process of post-curing 3D parts ensures that any residual oligomers and monomers remain fully bonded to the part. Without the post-curing step, these monomers and oligomers can detach from the part and find their way into the body creating health risks.
