Practices and patients will appreciate exceptional convenience and precise fit

SOUTH BEND, INDIANA – Leader in dental esthetics, recently launched the Pala Digital Denture System. The system’s advanced technology delivers dramatic time savings and digital precision to benefit dental practices, their dental laboratories, and their patients.

The highly advanced 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. Importantly, despite the significant time savings, there is absolutely 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.

“Reducing chair time is what it’s all about–for both my practice and my patients– and the Pala Digital Denture System certainly delivers on that count,” said David Little, DDS of San Antonio, Texas. “It also delivers the accuracy and

predictability that only CAD/CAM technology can provide, plus I love having the ability to make a replica of the denture using the digital record. On top of all that, you can take advantage of this impressive technology without having to invest in a new piece of equipment.”

“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, dentists tell us that 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. The combination of dramatic time savings, digital precision, and the exceptionally life-like esthetics of Pala denture teeth makes the Pala Digital Denture System an exciting upgrade for dental practices, laboratories and patients alike.
