Heraeus Kulzer offers new digital denture solution [VIDEO]

Heraeus Kulzer recently launched the Pala Digital Denture System, a new and advanced system with technology engineered to allow time savings and digital precision to benefit dental practices and dental laboratories. 

Heraeus Kulzer recently launched the Pala Digital Denture System, a new and advanced system with technology engineered to allow time savings and digital precision to benefit dental practices and dental laboratories. 

The Pala Digital Denture system technology uses computer aided design (CAD) and 3D software to model dentures for an excellent fit with great esthetics that practices can deliver to their patients two times faster than conventional systems. Despite the time savings, there is reportedly no compromise in either comfort or esthetics; the end-result is a high quality, well-polished appliance that delivers a precise fit.

The Pala Digital Denture system allows the dentist to capture the final impression, bite, vertical dimension and centric relation in a single patient visit, compared to three visits with conventional systems. Once the lab receives the impression, it is scanned and forwarded to Heraeus Kulzer, which creates 3D renderings and crafts the final denture. The lab examines the denture and sends it to the dentist, who places it with the patient.

“The beauty of this technology is that it shows the final tooth position in the prototype for approval, so the bite registration and vertical dimension are approved upfront,” says B.J. Kowalski, president of ROE Dental Laboratory in Garfield Heights, Ohio, a respected leader in the use of dental technology and an early evaluator of the Pala Digital Dentures System. “Another advantage of the Pala Digital Denture System is that it uses Pala denture teeth, which are specifically made with and for CAD/CAM technology. Our lab has been a big advocate of Pala teeth for many years.” 

How Heraeus Kulzer wants to improve your denture artistry

“The entire process from start to finish takes about 10 days and can involve as few as two patient visits, which is something that both patients and their practices greatly appreciate,” said Lesley Melvin, Senior Product Manager at Heraeus Kulzer. “Importantly, labs tell us that their practice customers and their patients are extremely pleased with both the look and fit of their Pala Digital Dentures.”

Another advantage of the Pala Digital Denture process is that its 3D renderings conveniently serve as a permanent digital record, which makes it quick and easy to create duplicate dentures, and with no chair time involved.

Melvin encourages dental laboratories to partner with Heraeus Kulzer and take advantage of this new technology: “As dental practices come to appreciate how powerfully our digital dentures can enhance both their productivity and their patient satisfaction, they’ll want to work with a lab that can show them the ropes and make it as easy as possible for them to reap its many benefits
