Formlabs have analysed and studied the Dental industry to ensure that the printers integrate well into the workflow. At Formlabs they understand that Dentists aren’t engineers, so the printers have been designed in such a way to be intuitive for those using it.

Formlabs also offer an abundance of online training and teaching. Check out Formlabs Dental Youtube page to receive step by step tutorials of how to design and print each resin.

What is a dental 3D scanner?
+
-
An intraoral scanner is a handheld electronic device which can be inserted into the patient’s mouth to map the anatomical structures within the buccal cavity. The images are sent to a PC where they give a 3-dimensional visual representation of the patient’s mouth, teeth, roots, gums and bones, as well as the nerves and airways. Scans can be sent in an instant to your dental laboratory if required, meaning the whole process is quicker, safer, more efficient and more comfortable for the patient than traditional x-rays or modelling.
What are the common uses for a 3D printer in dentistry? 
+
-
3D printing has revolutionised many industries, but it has perhaps been most valuable in the medical fields, including dentistry, where every patient is unique so there can be no ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach. 3D printing can be used to produce physical models for orthodontics prosthodontics and surgery; to make dental, orthopaedic and craniomaxillofacial implants; to produce frameworks and copings for implant and dental restorations; and to create drill guides to be used when fitting dental implants. 3D printers reduce the need for manual modelling, saving time, labour and money. 

Customer satisfaction is enhanced as services can be delivered faster and more accurately, reducing time spent ‘in the chair’ and therefore cost too.
How do 3D dental scanners work?
+
-
An intraoral dental scanner records the 3D geometry of the mouth and associated structures accurately and precisely by casting structured light on the area to be mapped. The handheld device uses image sensors to capture areas of interest which are sent to and processed by associated software. A point cloud is constructed which is then further interpreted by the software to create a virtual 3-dimensional surface model which is typically called a ‘mesh’.
How do I choose a 3D dental printer for my practice?
+
-
One of the most important considerations must be the accuracy and precision of the printer. This goes beyond simply analysing a machine’s technical specifications. You must also evaluate the 3D printer’s quality, the technology it uses, the materials utilised for printing, the software settings, and options for post-processing. One sure way to determine the quality of a particular printer is to combine examination of the technical specifications with a sample part created by it. We are happy to send you such a sample so you can evaluate the quality for yourself.

Other important factors to take into account include how easy the machine is for you and your staff to use; how much your initial investment will be in the technology and how quickly you’ll receive a decent return on that investment (including upfront and running costs), and what materials you can use (notably, whether you’re tied to a particular manufacturer’s materials or can use those made by third parties. Speed of printing is also important to consider, as is the ability to scale up in future as demand increases.
What should I look for in an intraoral scanner?
+
-
The obvious factors are accuracy, speed, flexible workflows and an open system. But just as important is the quality of the software and the options it presents in terms of how scanned images are displayed – can they be easily understood by patients for educational purposes and to enhance customer satisfaction and approval of treatment options? You should also make sure your scanner is fully integrable with other technologies you use in your practice and with any external lab you use. Factor ongoing maintenance and repair costs into your budget; and ensure your staff on board with the technology and willing to learn how to use it before investing in an intraoral scanner.
How much does a 3D dental printer cost?
+
-
As an example, the best selling Formlabs Form 3 complete packages is £4,299 excluding VAT. This includes all you need to manufacture high-quality and precise parts and start printing right away: as well as the printer, you will also receive a resin tank, a platform, a finish kit, the Preform software, a Form wash and a Form cure. The Form 3 uses low force stereolithography to produce retail-grade models and end-use parts from a variety of materials. If you wish to print with medical grade resins, the Form 3B may be more suitable.

All Form 3 and 3B printers are compatible with consumables used by the Form 2, and if you are looking to upgrade to the Form 3 or 3B, for a limited time, you will receive a £500 credit to use against future consumables.
