Oratio Provides Dentists with Advanced Implantology Solutions using Objet 3D Printing

Objet Ltd., the innovation leader in 3D printing for rapid prototyping and additive manufacturing today announced that Oratio B.V. a leading dental industry company in the Netherlands, has developed a complete in-house digital workflow for fabrication of models for dental implants with the help of an Objet 3D Printer. The addition of 3D printing into Oratio’s workflow has turned Oratio into a fully digital dental provider, allowing it to significantly expand its implantology practice while offering higher accuracy and faster turnaround times.

Oratio identified the use of digital solutions for implantology as a potential growth opportunity. However, the company did not want to increase staff or costs, nor compromise its high standards. According to Siebe van der Zel, Chief Operating Officer of Oratio: “Digital dentistry could enable a new level of implant models and allow us full control of the complete process – from the dentist’s initial order, to designing the restoration, through final manufacturing."

Leveraging its strong experience in producing dental parts from CAD design imagery, Oratio chose to integrate the Objet Eden260V 3D Printer into its workflow. Since Installing the Objet 3D Printer Oratio has digitized the entire design and manufacturing process for dental implants. This has significantly improved the productivity of dental technicians by allowing them to focus on higher-level tasks. Implant models printed by the Objet 3D Printer are delivered with exceptionally fine details and an outstanding surface finish – to the full satisfaction of Oratio’s dentist customers. Dentist clients are also benefitting from improved turnaround times, enabled by the in-house rapid manufacturing process.

Avi Cohen, Head of Medical Solutions at Objet, commented: “Practices that specialize in dental implantology inherently require support systems that are flexible and versatile. For this reason Objet’s 3D printing systems represent the perfect fit. They enable labs such as Oratio to continue delivering specialist products to market while, at the same time, even broadening their range of services with new, value-added offerings.”

Summing up the benefits, van der Zel said: “Business growth followed immediately after we installed the Objet 3D Printer. We increased our productivity and as a result we can provide new and better solutions for implantology.”

The Objet Eden260V 3D Printer was recently recognized as a 2011 “Readers’ Choice” by subscribers to Dental Lab Products magazine. It was the only Rapid Prototyping platform honored in the magazine’s annual “Best of the Best Products” list.
