SOUTH BEND, Ind.—Kulzer recently entered into an agreement with Dentca to launch a web-based denture design platform that will allow Kulzer’s customers to design a denture online, download the design file and print the denture. This new platform is said to provide significant time savings and accuracy enhancements that will benefit dental practices, labs and patients. Dentca, like Kulzer, is a Mitsui Chemicals company.

Kulzer’s new design platform, Pala Design Studio, allows lab technicians to design a denture case in under 20 minutes. The technology also allows practices to require only two visits from their patients, compared to up to five visits with conventional dentures.

“We are extremely excited to be partnering with our sister company to bring Dentca's outstanding digital design platform to our valued customers,” said Lesley Melvin, Kulzer’s director of marketing and product management. “Our commitment to helping practices, labs and patients benefit from the exceptional efficiency and accuracy of digital dentures is unmatched in our industry, and this partnership is just the latest example of that commitment.”

Dentca’s design platform is the most recent addition to Kulzer’s digital denture technologies, which include:

Cara Print 4.0, a 3D printer for dental practices that meets speed and accuracy requirements for polymer-based dental appliances.
Pala Digital Dentures 2.0, a workflow system that provides what dental laboratories need to create fully-printed 3D dentures as well as printed denture bases with denture teeth.
3Shape Dental System, which allows access to Kulzer’s denture tooth libraries for the Mondial 6i, Mondial 6, Mondial 8 and Mondial 8i lines of prosthetic teeth.
Dima Print Denture Base Materials, which are light-curable resins indicated for fabrication and repair of full and partial removable dentures and baseplates.
Dima Print Denture Teeth Materials, light-curable resins for fabricating, by additive manufacturing, preformed denture teeth to be used in a denture.

Kulzer’s digital denture design platform—the Pala Design Studio—will be launched at the LMT Lab Day show February 21–23, and the Hyatt Regency in Chicago.

While Pala Design Studio will initially be used for 3D printed dentures design, over time it will also be used for milling dentures, all-on-4 design and splint and nightguard design. It also has the potential to be used in orthodontics.
