Ivoclar Vivadent captured center stage at the 2020 Chicago Midwinter meeting with the unveiling of an innovative monolithic disc for advanced digital denture workflows.
Taking the next step forward for digital denture production, Ivoclar Vivadent announced the introduction of Ivotion, a monolithic, single disc milling solution. Combining proven high-quality tooth and denture base materials in a single bi-color disc, Ivotion provides digital laboratories with an efficient, predictable, monolithic milling solution that offers the potential to change the world of digital dentistry.
“It is an absolute breakthrough innovation and the next big step for digital dentistry that will enhance the production efficiency of dental laboratories without sacrificing quality and esthetics,” explains Diego Gabathuler, CEO of Ivoclar Vivadent.
True Ivotion Innovation
The Ivotion monolithic milling disc features unique Shell Geometry, a data-based three-dimensional tooth and dental arch structure suitable for the rapid digital fabrication of removable upper and lower dentures. Based on the data of time-tested complete dentures that are in service, Shell Geometry defines the transition between the tooth and the denture base sections of the disc. Integrated exclusively into 3Shape Dental System 2020 CAD software, the digital denture system allows patient-specific customisation with the Ivotion tooth library and the coordinated Shell Geometry. Dentures are milled in the PrograMill milling unit in one uninterrupted milling process and only need polishing prior to delivery.
Canadian Denturist Eric Kukucka tested Ivotion during its development and presented the new solution Saturday, February 22nd at LMT Days. “The disc is really fascinating. So far, I’ve been able to test every patient case successfully. The process is very efficient and the results are remarkable.”
Ivotion Denture System
With the launch of the Ivotion disc, the digital denture solutions of Ivoclar Vivadent are incorporated in the Ivotion Denture System.
The Ivotion Denture System gives you planning reliability, heightens your efficiency and leads to predictable results. It can be used for many different applications in digital removable denture prosthetics.
Available in May
The new Ivotion disc is expected to be available in May 2020.
All other exclusive digital denture workflows such as the oversize milling process of Ivoclar Vivadent will be integrated into the 3Shape Dental System 2020.
