The plastic sheets feature NBA-licensed logos and designs for a number of teams, including the Boston Celtics, Brooklyn Nets, Los Angeles Lakers, and Philadelphia 76ers. 

Dentagrafix, makers of FDA-compliant, decorated plastic sheets for removable plastic dental appliances, announced a partnership with the NBALAB to offer a collection of National Basketball Association (NBA) themed plastic sheets for use in fabricating orthodontic aligners and retainers. 

NBA-licensed logos and designs will be integrated into the Dentografix thermoformable plastic sheets. Logos available now include the Boston Celtics, Brooklyn Nets, Golden State Warriors, Houston Rockets, Los Angeles Clippers, Los Angeles Lakers, Milwaukee Bucks, New York Knicks, and Philadelphia 76ers. Working with the NBALAB, Dentagrafix plans to expand the collection over time to include additional teams.

“Despite the growing popularity of removable aligners and clear retainers in orthodontic care, there have been virtually no options for colors or innovative designs. Dentagrafix fills this void by delivering products that go beyond mere functionality, serving up something a lot more fun and personalized for patients,“ says Matthew Fischer, CEO of Dentagrafix. “The addition of our NBA collection builds upon this foundation. We are both excited and proud to be working with NBALAB and we’re confident that this relationship will help expand our demographic reach, generating a buzz around each dental practice that offers Dentagrafix-designed products.”  

Developed by a board certified orthodontist, Dentagrafix uses a proprietary, patent pending manufacturing process to produce an FDA-compliant, decorated plastic sheet material to form “Essix” type removable plastic retainers and aligners.
