Three resins are now validated on the Carbon platform, providing dental labs with opportunities to manufacture and design new products in their portfolio.
In an effort to support the dental industry further, manufacturing group Carbon has announced the validation of 3 notable resins for its platform. The 3 resins–Pac-Dent Rodin Sculpture, Desktop Health Flexcera Base, and Keystone KeyGuard–will now be suitable for the Carbon platform, expanding manufacturing capabilities for dental labs, according to a press release from the company.
Through these new validations and new materials, Carbon hopes to offer dental labs even more flexibility in their manufacturing capabilities, per co-founder and office of the CEO at Carbon, Philip DeSimone in the press release.
“With the introduction of these new resins, dental labs can look forward to improving their workflow efficiency and product offerings while providing customers with the latest in dental care advancements,” DeSimone says in the press release. “Each resin will unlock new opportunities for dental labs and further highlight Carbon’s unwavering dedication to facilitating dental industry innovation through advanced, best-in-class resins.”
These resins all offer unique capabilities for the dental lab, each with a specific purpose that aims to make them key in diverse manufacturing. Here’s a closer look at these special materials.
Pac-Dent Rodin Sculpture Resin has a unique makeup that enables it to be an all-on-x solution for the Carbon platform. Said to offer both esthetics and strength, this resin has a nanohybrid ceramic formulation with an over 50% ceramic filler, per the press release. This covers it under ADA insurance code reimbursements, while also touting a United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) 510k clearance for all-on-x temporary dental appliances. Factoring all of these together, Rodin Sculpture Resin is well-suited for a variety of dental restorations.
Desktop Health Flexcera Base is now validated by the Carbon platform, joining its Flexcera Smile Ultra+ restorative tooth resin. Base is designed specifically for denture bases, with key features that include facture resistance as well as enhanced esthetics for patient satisfaction. This material joins Flexcera Smile Ultra+ to create a robust, FDA-cleared denture system on the Carbon platform.
Finally, the third material validated on the Carbon platform is Keystone Industries KeyGuard. This material is indicated for custom-fit mouthguards, providing dental labs the opportunity to fully diversify their offerings. Technicians and manufacturers can use KeyGuard to craft comfortable and durable sports mouthguards.
Interested parties can order any of these 3 materials through Carbon’s website now, as well as any additional training or support necessary to begin incorporating these products into daily workflows. To learn more, visit Carbon here.
