Introducing AvaDent, the Digital Platform that is Changing Removable Dentistry Forever.
AvaDent Revolutionary Digital Technology brings the precision, speed and profitability of CAD/CAM process automation to removable dentistry. Developed by an international team of leaders in the digital dentistry field, AvaDent makes it possible for dentists to offer their patients a precise-fitting, aesthetic denture in as little as two appointments. (More ...)
As the world’s first and only digital removable platform, AvaDent Digital Dentures has an initial record taking appointment followed by a second appointment which can be used to deliver the final AvaDent or an AvaDent Advanced Try-In (ATI). In cases where the dentist requests an ATI, the third appointment becomes the delivery appointment.
The secret of success for an AvaDent is capturing all the records necessary at the first appointment. To do this AvaDent has created proprietary procedures, devices and materials to assist the dentist in quickly and easily obtaining the correct records. It starts by taking a good impression. AvaDent has developed a unique technique using thermal-plastic trays and special scan-able impression materials to help the dentist create the perfect impression. To capture the records, AvaDent has created a patented device call the AvaDent Anatomical Measurement Device or AMD. The AMD lets you easily capture all the records including OVD, CR, Lip Support, Bite Plane, Incisal Edge, Midline and Gingival height. The final impressions and AMD are then scanned, the files are merged and a virtual AvaDent is created within the AvaDent Digital Platform.
With over three years of software and engineering development, AvaDent has created a simple, elegant process of denture design that is backed up with sophisticated, breakthrough technology. This technology incorporates time tested removable principles including curves of Spee and Wilson and Occlusal plain. Additionally the AvaDent algorithms are based on traditional and well-accepted anatomical measurements and landmarks including identifying the retro molar pad, the apex of the lower anterior ridge as well as identifying the entire mandibular ridge… the ptero maxillary fissure, fovea palatinae, incisive papilla and the entire maxillary ridge… to achieve a perfect set-up in seconds.
Once a case enters the AvaDent digital world, the AvaDent technician has functional and aesthetic options never before possible. As an example, individual tooth movement no longer requires a full reset due to a process called Kinematically-correct strain free coupled tooth motion where our software automatically adjusts all teeth along the ridge resulting in perfect occlusion. Once the AvaDent is designed, the base, with tooth pockets designed to exactly accommodate the prescribed denture tooth, is milled from a patented, pre-shrunk puck of acrylic made from well-accepted acrylic manufactures. AvaDent’s patented process creates a bio-hygienic, acrylic puck that is significantly less porous than conventional injection-created bases resulting in substantially less C Albicans adhesion. So along with a computer precise fit, this process helps reduce bacteria build-up which is a major cause of denture breath and sore spots. This process also produces lower and consistent amounts of residual methyl methacrylate monomer in an AvaDent as compared to a traditionally fabricated denture.
The teeth are then bonded into the milled pockets. One side note, since AvaDents have been available, there has been zero cases where the teeth have separated from the base. This fact was further substantiated by research conducted by the State University of New York at Buffalo to test our bonding process. The Test resulted in zero bonding failures. AvaDent Digital Dentures now offer a full line of treatment options including: full over full, single arch, implant retained and immediate AvaDents. Finally we are pleased to announce that AvaDent has been selected as a Top 100 Product by the readers of Dentistry Today, has won the Townie Choice Award for Best New Product and is the recipient of the “Best of Class” Technology Award from The Pride Institute. AvaDents are manufactured in the USA.
AvaDent, a paradigm shift: AvaDent’s continual R&D advancements in engineering and software further separate them from all digital pretenders.
- AvaDent is now testing fully milled dentures including specially designed “signature” teeth created by leading clinicians and technicians.
- AvaDent is working with major implant companies to create and streamline implant and full mouth rehab solutions.
- AvaDent is re-engineering the clinical science of removable by creating digital articulation which will allow us to map the envelope of motion and create a fully milled AvaDent with balanced occlusion specific to each individual patient.
All of the above is possible only because of the exclusive AvaDent Digital Record. For the first time ever dentist can treatment plan a removable case from immediates to full mouth rehab all within a digital environment. It is a paradigm shift in full mouth removable treatment that makes all other processes obsolete.
