It has been just over a year since the innovative Ivotion Denture System from Ivoclar Vivadent revolutionised the fabrication of removable dentures.
During this time, the company has not only won over numerous users, but it has also kept its promise of ongoing development of the Ivotion Denture System by releasing fabrication of implant-supported dentures and a new gingiva shade.
One of the world's leading providers of integrated solutions for high-quality dental solutions, Ivoclar Vivadent can look back on a successful year for its Ivotion Denture System. As part of the Digital Denture Workflow, this innovative system facilitates a fast and predictable process for fabricating removable dentures from just a single disc. Easy to use and highly efficient, it also impresses with attractive aesthetic results. Qualities that have won over countless users and patients across the world since its launch.
Ivotion as part of the Digital Denture Workflow
In 2020, with the Ivotion Denture System, Ivoclar Vivadent established a complete process for the digital fabrication of premium-grade removable dentures from a single monolithic disc. This system solution combines tailored process components with premium-grade materials and sophisticated technologies. At the heart of the system is the unique Ivotion CAD/CAM disc that enables custom monolithic dentures to be fabricated in just one milling process. This system concept together with the new Ivotion monolithic disc revolutionised the fabrication of removable dentures with an intelligent Digital Denture Workflow - from patient consultation (IvoSmile) to clinical processes, from intuitive design (3Shape Dental System) and the monolithic disc (Ivotion) to fabrication (PrograMill milling units), right through to follow-up. The tailored workflow enables fast, efficient and consistent results.
An all-round solution: the clever Ivotion CAD/CAM disc
The innovative Ivotion disc is the heart of the Ivotion Denture System. This CAD/CAM disc made of two colours is an intelligent combination of high-grade proven tooth and denture base materials in a single disc for the monolithic fabrication of complete dentures. The big advantage: with Ivotion, there is no longer any need to bond teeth to the denture base. This reduces potential problem areas. The Ivotion disc contains the unique Shell Geometry, a three-dimensional tooth and dental arch geometry based on real denture data that defines the transition between the tooth and denture base materials. The PMMA material used impresses with its optimised fracture resistance. What is more, with the Full Denture Module in the 3Shape Dental System, dentures can be customised easily and quickly to meet patient needs, thanks to tooth libraries with sample setups, morphing tools, setup features and a variety of gingiva designs.
Added value for customers and patients
Following its launch, the Ivotion Denture System has set new standards in removable denture solutions. Right from the start, Ivotion was designed with the future in mind, using premium-grade materials to facilitate a wide range of applications. That is why Ivotion is also ideally suited for the fabrication of implant-supported dentures, meaning even more options are possible when fabricating and customising removable dentures. Now, in addition to the existing gingiva shades Pink-V and Preference, the Ivotion CAD/CAM disc is also available in US-D, a shade that specifically meets the needs of patients with darker gingival colouring, expanding the range of possible customisations even further. After all, Ivoclar Vivadent has one mission: Making People Smile.
