Roland DGA Corp.’s DWX-50 dental CAD/CAM milling machine has recently been certified by 3M ESPE to work with Lava Ultimate Restorative resin nano ceramic material.
The DWX-50 joins a growing list of open-architecture mills to receive this authorization.
“As an open-architecture system, the DWX-50 allows labs to customize their production environments with the most advanced tools and materials from industry leaders like 3M ESPE,” said Brian Brooks, product manager for Roland DGA Corp. “This certification provides Roland labs everywhere with immediate access to one of the world’s most innovative dental prosthetic materials. Together, the DWX-50 and Lava Ultimate Restorative provide labs with precision results, fast, efficient production, and exceptional durability for better overall patient care.”
A resin nano ceramic material designed to offer patients excellent esthetics and outstanding strength, Lava Ultimate Restorative can be characterized and finished without firing-dramatically reducing 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 reportedly easy to modify and is repaired like real tooth structure.
