Irvine, Calif.– Roland DGA Corporation announced that its latest DWX-51D and DWX-4W dental mills have been validated by VITA Zahnfabrik H. Rauter GmbH & Co. KG (Germany) for use with the company’s dental prosthetic materials, including VITA ENAMIC®, VITA SUPRINITY®* and VITABLOCS® Mark II.
“Dental materials from VITA, including hybrid ceramic and glass ceramic type materials, are becoming increasingly popular with dental technicians, dentists and their patients due to their superb aesthetic appearance, strength and shortened processing time required,” said Brian Brooks, senior dental product manager for Roland DGA Corp. “The certification provides not only an endorsement for the excellent accuracy and quality of dental prosthetics produced with our milling machines, but also peace of mind to our customers and prospects that our devices meet the high quality standards set by VITA.”
The certification has been given for milling VITA ENAMIC® with the DWX-51D equipped with ZDB-100D/50D/30D milling burs developed specifically for milling dental hybrid type materials. Introduced in 2015, the DWX-51D 5-axis dry mill is capable of producing copings, crowns, full bridges and abutments and other prosthetics from materials such as zirconia, wax, PMMA, composite resin, PEEK and gypsum with unparalleled speed and precision. Also launched in 2015, the DWX-4W, Roland’s first wet mill, is now certified to mill VITA ENAMIC®, VITA SUPRINITY® and VITABLOCS® Mark II. The DWX-4W is specially designed for milling glass ceramics and composite resins, featuring 4-axis milling and a 4-station automatic tool changer.
“Our DWX series dental mills were purposely built using an open architecture design in order to integrate into an existing workflow with commercially available dental CAD/CAM software and hardware,” said Brooks. “This feature allows us to partner with exciting dental companies like VITA to ensure that our customers always have access to the latest, most advanced prosthetic materials rather than being locked in to a single source.”
Matt O’Connell, president of VITA North America added, “We are thrilled to partner with Roland DGA by providing cutting-edge CAD/CAM restorative materials that take full advantage of the advanced technology that Roland DG has developed.”
VITA ENAMIC® is a hybrid ceramic material which combines the high load capacity and aesthetics of a dental ceramic with the elasticity of a composite. It is finished without firing. VITA SUPRINITY® is high-strength, zirconia-reinforced glass ceramic acclaimed for its high load capacity. It also esthetics are based on integrated translucency, opalescence and fluorescence. With optimized edge stability due to fine-grained configuration, it can be used for prosthetics that require precision. VITABLOCS® Mark II is a feldspathic glass ceramic with more than 25 years of clinical experience providing bonding to the tooth structure.
Roland DGA will be demonstrating the DWX-51D and the DWX-4W milling VITA prosthetic materials at LMT Lab Day, February 26 and 27, in Chicago, Illinois. Interested attendees can also join free continuing education clinics given by Roland DGA and VITA while gaining CE scientific credits for attending.
