Roland DGA Corp.’s new DWX-4 compact dental mill has been qualified by 3M ESPE for use with the company's Lava Ultimate Restorative resin nano ceramic material. 

Featuring precise milling capabilities, ease of use, bundled CAM software and a compact, desktop footprint, the affordable DWX-4 is Roland's second dental mill to receive the certification. In September, 3M ESPE qualified Roland's DWX-50 5-axis dental milling machine for use with the innovative new material, making it one of the industry's first open-architecture mills to earn the certification.

"Lava Ultimate Restorative is a remarkable new material that helps expedite production while achieving highly durable, exceptional quality results," said Brian Brooks, product manager for Roland DGA Corp. "We are pleased to work with 3M ESPE to bring all the benefits of this combined solution to labs everywhere."

"Dental labs have told us that they want access to 3M ESPE materials from a variety of milling systems," said Kristan Chesnut, global business director with 3M Digital Oral Care. "By qualifying Lava Ultimate Restorative with Roland's DWX-50 and DWX-4 milling machines, we bring high quality materials with more efficient and productive workflows to dental labs."

A resin nano ceramic material that offers patients excellent esthetics and outstanding strength, Lava Ultimate Restorative can be finished without firing, which dramatically reduces production time.

The material is designed for long-term durability and backed by a 10-year warranty. Patients experience less wear to the opposing dentition than with glass ceramics and a tooth-like bite feel due to its excellent absorption of

chewing forces.

Should the underlying dentition need additional treatment or repair, the material is easily modified and repaired like real tooth structure.
