Orthodontic acrylic resins are used to create a variety of orthodontic appliances including retainers, night guards and splints. These resins are usually delivered in a powder and liquid format that hardens after the materials are mixed.
Both light cure composite resin adhesive materials, Transbond XT and BracePaste, display adequate and optimal bond strength suitable for application in orthodontic bonding procedures in day-to-day clinical practice.
In orthodontics, BPA dimethacrylate derivatives are mostly used for bonding brackets (bonding resins and composite resins as main adhesives) and lingual retainers, whereas BPA-polycarbonates are used for manufacturing plastic brackets.
Zinc phosphate cements are widely used for cementation of orthodontic bands. These cements are generally available as hand-mixed powder-liquid systems, although some encapsulated products are marketed. Orthodontic Resin is a self-cure material used to construct orthodontic appliances, such as maintainers and retainers. It consists of a clear powder and choice of pink or clear liquids. Appliances may be fabricated by the following methods: dusting, pouring or packing.
Global orthodontic resin market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
EnvisionTEC Launches Two Orthodontic Materials at LMT Lab Day Chicago, Including Resin for Direct 3D Printing of Clear Aligners.EnvisionTEC also will be showcasing a breakthrough new material, E-Orthalign, for the direct 3D printing of what is known in orthodontics as a “first aligner.”
The new material, which meets the biocompatibility, stability, flexion and strength requirements for a first aligner, is progressing through regulatory approval processes.With more than 12 resins that can now be used for dental models, castables, appliances and restorations, EnvisionTEC currently offers the dental industry’s leading portfolio of materials.
Seven of EnvisionTEC’s dental material offerings are also FDA approved.All of EnvisionTEC’s dental materials can be processed on the company’s powerful and flexible DLP machines, such as the Vida and Micro desktop 3D printers.
EnvisionTEC will continue to offer its premium and highly popular E-Model Light material, which can be printed in 50 micron layers. Unlike E-Orthalign, E-Model Light can be used for the production of high-accuracy dental and orthodontic models that can be used for:Soldering appliances,Salt and Pepper acrylic techniques,Restorative work, including models with removable dies, andThermoformed aligner production.
