So this is a common issue that patient have. They have a nightguard and it cracks or they just need another one. So here is a really simple fix using Galileos and a program called Invesalius that converts DICOM to STL. We scanned in Galileos using the VOG and the scan can.
We then brought the night guard into Meshmixer to clean it up as well as converted our CEREC scan to try the guard. The guide was printed on the Envisiontec Vida using the E-Guard Clear Splint Material and a model was printed using the E-Model Light. Both took under two hours to print.
I will say that it took a bit of adjustment to get this down. My thought are that I needed to use Hiroshi’s Calibration Cube within Invisalius. But this could be a cool option once we get it dialed in.
