Yenadent introduced new D6 milling machine to the market .
In the beginning of the CAD/CAM technology people were used to rather ill-fitting offset copings and a lot of money was needed, as well as specific locations, due to the machines size. Today, requirements have increased significantly with regard to milling results as well as to the practical logistic handling. Laboratories of various dimensions and manpower want to take advantage of the modern CAD/CAM technology. After the initial CAD/CAM euphoria, and the even partially euphoric disorientation, the requirements for the acquisition of a CAD/CAM system are much clearer and more differentiated.
The new Zirkonzahn Library Download Center is now available for free for all exocad® and 3shape users.
Our constant research aiming at offering you the best solutions for your digital workflow led us to a further achievement: the new Zirkonzahn.Implant-Planner software. Our new software has been conceived with the objective of simplifying the way you plan your cases and, at the same time, improving the cooperation with the whole dental team, which results in better interactions with the patient.
Highly intuitive and rich in useful functions, Zirkonzahn.Implant-Planner allows the user to integrate the patient’s scans with scans of the models in order to accurately plan the positions of the implants in advance (backward planning). The software is equipped with functions that allows the user to track the patient’s nerves, create plans and panoramic section curves with perpendicular sections and remove artefacts. In a close collaboration with the dental technicians and thanks to the digital preview, the dentist is able to take into consideration also the aesthetical aspects of the prosthesis during the implant planning phase. The software guarantees a safe and reliable communication between the dentist and the dental technician
With the sinter metal blanks developed by Zirkonzahn, you can easily manufacture non-precious restorations (single crowns, large-span bridges up to 14 elements, metal frameworks, telescopes, bars, dowels, attachments) in your own lab.
The high-quality cobalt-chromium alloy can be sintered with two different furnaces: with the Zirkonofen 700 Ultra-Vakuum sintering furnace for both zirconia and sinter metal, by using the sintering adapter, or with the new Sinterofen 300S for sinter metal only, whose combustion chamber can host approximately 50 sinter metal elements, and that can sinter 2 full-arch bridges or 6 bars in one process.
With both of these furnaces the material is sintered under high vacuum, without shielding gas.
The raw material has a shrinkage factor of just 7%, which makes its torsional stability during the sintering process very high. Like this, all milled dental restorations can be sintered with total lack of stresses. Zirkonzahn Sintermetall blanks are available in 7 different heights.
