Carbon’s new Dental Resins
Pac-Dent Rodin Sculpture Resin: The Pac-Dent Rodin Sculpture Resin, developed for modern dental restorations, introduces a new all-on-x solution for long-term provisional on the Carbon platform. This resin guarantees high precision, aesthetics, and strength. This resin is notable for being the first in Carbon’s line to be FDA 510k-cleared for all-on-x temporary dental appliances, with a nanohybrid ceramic formulation for lifelike permanent restorations. It is also the first permanent crown material to contain more than 50% ceramic filler, making it eligible for updated ADA insurance code reimbursements: D2740, D2630, and D2644.
Desktop Health Flexcera Base: Flexcera Base, the latest innovation in denture base materials, joins Carbon’s portfolio following the successful validation of Flexcera Smile Ultra+ restorative tooth resin. This resin is intended for the production of high-impact denture bases, combining optimal fracture resistance with high aesthetic quality. Flexcera Base and Flexcera Smile Ultra+ are both FDA-approved, allowing dental labs to confidently offer permanent and temporary solutions to their customers.
Keystone Industries KeyGuard: Keystone Industries introduces the Keystone KeyGuard to the Carbon platform, a material designed for high-quality, custom-fit mouthguards. This enhancement allows dental professionals to digitally design sports mouthguards with custom variable wall thicknesses to provide comfort and protection to the end user. This resin adds another important application to Carbon’s premium resin portfolio.
The new materials are immediately available for purchase, and Carbon offers comprehensive support and training.
