Revolutionizing Denture Design

Pala Design Studio is the world's first web-based denture design software. Developed by the experts at Kulzer and DENTCA, this online service allows dental laboratories to design cases for 3D printed or milled formats in a simple and efficient way. So efficient, in fact, that you will be able to design a case in 10 minutes and have the final STL file rendered in under an hour.

With Pala Design Studio, multiple technicians can design cases simultaneously without any software installation required. And, new projects can be started while current cases are undergoing rendering, eliminating the need to wait for final generation to
finish. Your lab will be able to maximize its output and
production like never before.

Pala Design Studio is easy to integrate into your workflow. Here's an overview of the process:

1: Scanning and Uploading

The first step is to upload 3 scanned STL files of the case you are working on: maxillary, mandibular, and bite.

2: Entering Design Information

Next, enter patient information and select the type of impression used in the case - Pala Digital Dentures trays or wax rims.

3: Matching

Match both arches with the bite: simply click to add a colored reference point on the bite scan, and click the same area on the model to align.

4: Trimming

Establish trim lines on the maxillary and mandibular arches by clicking to place dots along the models.

5: Choosing Landmarks

The landmarks consist of three upper points and two lower points: the incisive papilla, the left and right hamular notches, and the retromolar pads. Click to select all 5 points, and verify your teeth selection. Pala Design Studio will then match, trim, create the occlusal plane, and arrange the teeth automatically.

6: Verification

Verify the matching, trimming, and occlusal plane placement. You can make any necessary adjustments at this time.

7: Teeth Setup

Pala Design Studio automatically generates an ideal tooth setup for your case based on the teeth and gum shape and style that you chose. If there are certain esthetic parts that need to be customized, you can do so now. Once you are satisfied with the teeth setup, submit the case for final generation.

8: Ordering and Final Output

Once the final generation is done, you can view the completed design. Designs are optimized for 3D printing or milling, and the STL files can be downloaded as a try-in or final dentures.
