Navigating the Digital Highway

Minh Tran, RDT,  Founder and Creative Director of DentalTechTips

Join Minh Tran in this exciting discussion where we will cover topics related to incorporating software and manufacturing methods as a part of your journey in digital dentistry. Although the digital production segment has matured in our industry, there is a lack of standardization, and navigating the pathways to production can be a daunting task. Starting with how to easily translate traditional restorative indications into their digital counterparts we will explore the benefits, efficiencies, and limitations of digital dentistry as it exists today. We will be closing the talk with the advent of additive manufacturing technologies like 3D printing and how the use of systemized techniques opens up new business and growth opportunities for your laboratory.

Product Showcase

Multilayer Zirconias

When it comes to multilayer, it's all about the blend. And Argen has mastered it. ArgenZ HT+ Multilayer and Argen Z ST Multilayer zirconias offer a natural gradient, easy nesting, and no visible layer lines. HT+ Multilayer is ideal for long-span bridges and full-arch cases, providing optimal strength (1250 MPa). ArgenZ ST Multilayer is the superior choice for esthetic zone cases, boasting 50% translucency.

New! ArgenZ HT+ Multilayer light shades are formulated for implant-retained full-arch restorations. Slightly lighter than their corresponding shade, the light shades provide a more accurate shade match on long-span to full-arch cases. Available in 20-, 25- and 30-mm disc sizes and digital units fabricated by Argen in shades A1-L, A2-L, B1-L, C1-L and D2-L.
