Dental SG is a Class 1 biocompatible resin (EN-ISO 10993-1:2009/AC:2010, USP Class VI) for creating precise surgical guides and similar applications. Tuned for accuracy and precision, the resin is designed to directly print surgical and pilot drill guides.
Print accurate surgical guides for implant dentistry.
1. Digital Design
Design surgical guides by using implant treatment planning software to integrate CBCT and intraoral scan data.
2. Print and Prepare
Print on the Form 2 with Formlabs Dental SG Resin. Post-cure with a cure chamber, remove supports, and add drill sleeves.
Simply sterilize prints in an autoclave to use surgical guides directly in the mouth during implant surgery.
To achieve desired properties, the Instructions for Use Instructions for Use must be followed. Prints made with Dental SG Resin should be fully post-cured for 10 minutes at a 60°C temperature under 108W of both UV-A and UV-Blue light. Contact Customer Support for post-curing recommendations.
Bring the Advantages of Digital Implantology to Your Practice.
Effective presurgical planning
Examine vital structures and osseous topography in implant planning software to perform less invasive procedures and conserve anatomic structures.
Improved patient experience
Avoid messy manual impressions and tedious stone model pour-ups by taking digital impressions. Reduce surgical time compared to freehand techniques.
Precise implant placement
Carry out precise implant procedures with confidence. Superimpose preoperative and postoperative CBCT scans to easily verify final implant placement accuracy.
Precise, Strong, Certified.
This difference map shows a 3D scan of the printed surgical guide overlaid with the original 3D model. The color mapping indicates differences with the green areas revealing dimensional accuracy within ± 50 microns. A study of 84 surgical guides printed with Dental SG resin were scanned with an orthodontic scanner and compared with the .STLs of the intended models. Results showed that printed models were dimensionally accurate within ± 100 microns over 93% of the surface area, providing a precise fit for dental surgical applications.

Our resins have been designed to be as safe as possible, but nevertheless, working with them requires care, similar to working with common adhesives or household cleaners. They do not have volatile solvents so special ventilation is not required, though skin contact should be avoided.
