ClearCorrect Reveals Integration of Advanced Digital Orthodontic Production Using Objet’s 3D Printing Systems

ClearCorrect aligner and Objet patternClearCorrect LLC, a manufacturer of clear aligners, announced collaboration with Objet Ltd. in making Objet’s high-resolution 3D printing systems an integral part of its mass-scale manufacturing of custom-made orthodontic aligners. Together, ClearCorrect and Objet are bringing the advantages of digital 3D printing technology to orthodontics.

 The ClearCorrect manufacturing center, located in Houston, Texas, is one of the most advanced digital production centers in the USA. Essential to its operation are a number of recently installed Objet 3D printing systems, making ClearCorrect a major user of the technology in the dental industry.

“With the recent implementation of these Objet 3D printing systems, we now have the means to scale rapidly and efficiently in the global market while maintaining the highest quality,” commented ClearCorrect CEO, Jarrett Pumphrey.

The Objet 3D printing systems are a key component of the ClearCorrect process in that they produce the plastic models of each step of the patient’s treatment. ClearCorrect then thermoforms over the models to create the clear aligners. Instead of just sending the doctors the clear aligners for the patient, ClearCorrect includes the plastic models along with the clear aligners so that the doctors can use them as needed to fabricate replacement aligners should a patient lose or break an aligner. This way, both the doctor and the patient benefit in cost and time savings.

“Objet and ClearCorrect have worked together to implement our ultra-thin layer, high-resolution 3D printing solutions in the ClearCorrect production process,” said Avi Cohen, head of medical solutions at Objet. “We expect this cooperation will increase overall manufacturing productivity, and by bringing together the ClearCorrect system and technology with Objet’s 3D printing systems, we shall achieve top results for the benefit of users worldwide.”
