DFT – Digital File Transfer

Use Your Intraoral Scanner to Send Files To SmileShare™

DynaFlex® is able to print your scanned orthodontic case on our Rapid Prototyping Printers into a physical working model. These models are then sent into our laboratory for appliance fabrication. The model-building material is made from the highest quality available today. It is a non-toxic durable material that does not break easily like plaster and stone models. The accuracy of the model is exceptional and the appliance fit is better than EVER!

Some appliances require a bite for fabrication. If you submit your case digitally, you can also submit your bite digitally. If you are unsure if a bite is needed for a certain appliance, contact our customer care team at 800-489-4020.
