ULab Systems has opened a new state-of-the-art aligner manufacturing facility in Tennessee, complementing its existing planning and design tools to provide a complete treatment solution, according to the company. Aligners are shipped in no more than 10 days, either to the office or directly to the patient, in packaging that can incorporate the orthodontist’s brand. Practices that wish to print some of their own aligners—such as the first few to start treatment—can still take advantage of uLab printing thanks to its pay-by-aligner pricing.
