Pala Digital Dentures

The state-of-the-art in denture technology

The first dentures date back to around 700 BC, when they were created by the Etruscans using human and animal teeth. Of all the advancements in denture technology over the past 2,700 years, perhaps none has been as dramatic as the development of digital dentures.

The Pala Digital Denture system from Heraeus Kulzer combines 3D printing, CAD/CAM technology, and modeling software to deliver an exceptionally precise fit and great esthetics in a fraction of the time of conventional systems. In fact, you can capture not just the impression, but the bite registration, vertical dimension, and centric relation in the very first visit, versus three plus visits for traditional dentures.

Another major benefit comes at the try-in stage, as the exceptional precision of Pala Digital Dentures means minimal, if any, adjustment. And if any adjustments are required, they are done on the 3D-printed try-in and rescanned. Since the denture is modeled digitally, the information is already stored; therefore, the fit remains the same regardless of what adjustments you make to the teeth set-up, vertical dimension, or lip support.

The Pala Digital Denture system uses Heraeus Kulzer’s Mondial and Mondial i denture teeth, which are specifically made with and for CAD/CAM technology and are considered by many to represent the gold standard in terms of both esthetics and durability.

In addition, if a patient loses or wants a duplicate denture, there is no need to take any additional impressions, as the initial 3D renderings serve as a digital record of the denture. To make matters even easier, Heraeus Kulzer provides as much chairside training in your practice as you feel you require.

Is it estimated that 20.5% of adults in the United States older than 65 years have lost all their natural teeth due to tooth decay or gum disease. So it is no surprise that the US denture market is projected to be one of the fastest growing prosthetic segments over the next 2 decades. With the market expected to grow by a compound annual growth rate of 4.9% to $3.6 billion by 2019, now is an excellent time to invest in an efficient denture process. The combination of dramatic time savings, digital precision, and exceptional life-like esthetics provided by Pala Digital Dentures makes it an incredible opportunity for dental professionals to grow their business.
