Functional and Aesthetic Removable Restorations.
When we opened our laboratory in 1981, we were a crown and bridge, and ceramics specialty laboratory. Before long however, we realized that in order to obtain consistent results on combination and implant cases, it was best that we become a multidisciplinary laboratory. Thus, we opened a removable prosthetics department, including cast chrome frames, full and partial dentures and other specialty appliances. While our removable prosthetic department was meant to complement our fixed restorations, our team of denture technicians have carved out a solid record of delivering high-quality products and we look forward to creating removable solutions for your practice.
“Statistics show that 69% of adults ages 35 to 44 have lost at least one permanent tooth to an accident, gum disease, a failed root canal or tooth decay. Furthermore, by age 74, 26% of adults have lost all of their permanent teeth. In 2030, close to 20% (67 million people) will be 65 years and older. More than 20 percent of seniors are edentulous.” American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons.
Tips for Better Results for your Removable Case
Use a temperature stable material for ﬁxating rims.
Avoid using wax for registrations.
Do not send baseplates or set-ups on the articulator.
Individually wrap/package wax set-ups.
Disinfect and rinse tried in set-ups before returning.
A model of the existing denture is always helpful in establishing tooth mold.
Appropriate marking on bite on rim communicates: midline, smile-line, cuspid distal to cuspid distal, anterior width and incisal edge.

Flexible material reduces chair time and eliminates invasive procedures and the cumbersome materials associated with rigid partials . Metal-based RPD design is complex because it has to adapt rigid materials to a flexible environment. This leaves room for error, particularly under conditions where ideal designs and clinical preparations are challenged.
Best use: Esthetics and patients with metal allergies.
We utilize a variety of materials, teeth and techniques to provide you with a precise, natural-looking prosthesis designed for a long life and natural appearance. We offer three types of dentures; Digital Dentures, Premium Pressed Dentures and Standard Dentures.

Crystal Ultra Hybrid
An excellent hybrid comprised of Crystal Ultra™ and Trilor™ to create a removable prosthesis that closely resembles natural tooth enamel. This combination of materials results in a beautiful, durable, restoration with a look and feel of natural dentition, but is much stronger then implanted supported dentures.
The Crystal Ultra™ Hybrid is 60% lighter then Zirconia, six times stronger then Acrylic and soft occlusion characteristics allow this ceramic for in-the-mouth flexibility which eliminates fractures and chips under stress. This hybrid is a true chairside partner and easy to manipulate in the mouth.
Best of all your patients will love the natural aesthetics and natural, life like feel of Crystal Ultra™ Hybrid.
