Copenhagen, December 12, 2019 – 3Shape announces its 3Shape Splint Studio is now available in the United States. Splint Studio makes use of 3Shape’s splint design software, which has just received FDA 510(k) market clearance. This now opens the Splint Studio workflow and solution up to dental professionals in the USA.
The extremely fast and intuitive 3Shape Splint Studio workflow allows dental professionals to very quickly design and produce splints, night guards, protectors and similar dental appliances in just a few clicks.
With step by step workflows powered by 3Shape splint design software, Splint Studio includes several exciting features which make designing exceptionally fast, more efficient, and predictable.

3Shape Splint Workflow Highlights:
- Automatically raise the occlusal surface to the antagonist cusp tips – the software automatically makes a smooth surface that touches the antagonist cusp tips in selected areas for faster and more predictable design.
- Create slanted bite ramps in just a few clicks - the software automatically creates bite ramps exactly where and at the angle you choose. The occlusal compass displays which excursions generate which contacts.
- Enforce minimum thicknesses - the software notifies you whether the chosen minimum thickness is respected in the design, highlights discrepancies and can automatically repair them at the user’s discretion.
