Orthodontic treatment with aligners is becoming increasingly widespread. Initially introduced 20 years ago, clear aligners have been established as a true alternative to traditional brackets. Unlike braces, aligners are transparent, easy to wear, remove and clean. These features are highly appreciated by today’s patients.
However, the main disadvantage of aligner therapy is lab costs. The market price of a 30-aligners treatment ranges from 1500 EUR to 2500 EUR. Not everybody could afford that.
Luckily, eXceed is here to change that. As a “2nd Generation” aligner provider,eXceed offers a different approach to aligner production. We call it “In-office Aligners manufacturing”. Thanks to the development of desktop 3d printers, every dental office can now produce affordable orthodontic aligners - in-house.
eXceed accepts high-quality occluded models in STL format acquired directly, through intraoral scans, or indirectly, through scanning of impressions/models by desktop scanners. The list of compatible scanners is shown below. Furthermore, some scanners offer direct connectivity or bridge with eXceed, which means that scan files can be sent through a command, instead of being manually uploaded.
We use our own software that was developed and adapted for our needs. Being an aligner producer ourselves, we know exactly what is important when it comes to production and treatment.
