SprintRay Inc., an industry leader in digital dentistry and 3D printing solutions, has launched OnX Tough, a next-generation hybrid ceramic resin designed for 3D printing dental applications. Leveraging SprintRay’s proprietary NanoFusion technology, this new resin delivers durability and lifelike translucency for high-quality, same-day dental prosthetics.

“SprintRay was founded on the promise of building carefully-curated 3D printing solutions to enable dental providers to deliver an exceptional patient experience,” said Amir Mansouri, Co-Founder, and CEO of SprintRay. “This breakthrough OnX Tough material represents a paradigm shift for chairside dentistry, delivering customized, beautiful, and functional dental prosthetics while the patient is in the chair.”

Leveraging SprintRay's proprietary NanoFusion technology.The need for dental prosthetics is on the rise, with the global market reportedly projected to reach $9.71 billion by 2026. According to SprintRay, in the US alone, approximately 178 million adults are missing at least one tooth, and 40 million are edentulous (missing all teeth). Conventional methods to manufacture dental prosthetics involve sending digital or analog impressions to a lab with turnaround times averaging 3-4 weeks for some patients. With the advent of digital dentistry and 3D printing, first-generation 3D printing technologies have enabled in-office manufacturing of dental prosthetics, but with limitations.

“When creating OnX Tough, we set out to design a next-generation resin that addressed a key limitation of 3D printed prosthetics today – durability and toughness,” said Sumeet Jain, Vice President of Materials at SprintRay. “To address these limitations we developed NanoFusion technology, a new approach to dental chemistry. NanoFusion materials have a novel composition and form dense polymer chains to deliver dental prostheses with best-in-class fracture toughness, 5X that of first-generation technology. Furthermore, the composition brings a perfect combination of translucency and opacity to mimic that of natural dentition.”
