Thornton Cleveleys (UK) & Hofheim (Germany) – Hanover-based dental company GOLDQUADRAT GmbH has added the non-metal JUVORATM Dental Disc to its product range. As a result, the company now offers dentists an innovative solution made from the high performance polymer PEEK (polyetheretherketone) for use in the CAD/CAM fabrication of removable denture frameworks and implant-supported superstructures.
The unique material properties of the JUVORA Dental Disc improve, among other things, efficiency and accuracy in the CAD/CAM fabrication in dental laboratories with no modification to an existing CAD/CAM infrastructure required. Due to the bone-like flexibility of the material, patients report that their new JUVORA dentures are considerably more comfortable than their previous metal ones. Lighter in weight and the absence of any metallic taste also enhance patient comfort. The material offers patients the added benefit that it causes no uncomfortable heat or cold sensations while inserting/removing the dentures or while eating or drinking.
“Partnering with JUVORA allows us to expand our portfolio to better serve the changing needs of dental professionals and their patients across Germany. What sets the JUVORA Dental Disc apart from others is that it is the only type of PEEK that has an extensive and proven clinical history which we know is important to our customers,” explains Wilhelm Mühlenberg, Managing Director at GOLDQUADRAT.
“Dental laboratories are impressed by the JUVORA Dental Disc as a time-saving alternative to removable partial dentures made of metal. Dentists and patients are enthusiastic about the material because of its excellent physical properties and because it fits so well in the mouth,” adds Lynne Todd, Director at JUVORA. “Marketing through distributors such as GOLDQUADRAT is now making it even easier for dental laboratories and dentists to add our non-metal alternative to their range of products and services, thereby offering patients a truly premium solution,” continues Todd.
