Live finishing demo of prosthetics made from JUVORA™ Oyster White during upcoming LMT Lab Day in Chicago
Thornton Cleveleys (UK), February 20, 2019 – In response to popular demand, Invibio Biomaterial Solutions is releasing its JUVORA™ dental disc made from PEEK-OPTIMA™ in the US, in Oyster White for the first time. The new colour option complements the JUVORA™ Natural version, which is already available in the US market. The Oyster White dental disc will launch with live demonstrations at LMT Lab Day Chicago in February, a leading US trade expo for dental lab products and equipment.
Dental professionals now have the choice of working with a whiter and brighter high-performance polymer solution. Both JUVORA Oyster White and JUVORA Natural have 510(k) clearance by the US Food and Drug Administration and offer an alternative to zirconia or metal substructures for fixed and removable dental implant applications.
Attractive appearance combined with functionality
"Functionality isn't the only goal for our customers, when they select a dental prosthetic," noted John Devine, Medical Business Director at Invibio Biomaterial Solutions. "Feedback from dentists, OEMs, and distributors has indicated they want a colour choice for when improved aesthetics are needed. Technicians are also finding that the white coloured PEEK can serve as an ideal base for finishing and polishing the prosthetic to provide an overall look that is closer to natural dentition."
Previously only available in Europe, JUVORA oyster White retains all the proven biocompatible benefits of JUVORA Natural, including bone-like resilience, strength and shock absorption. An advantage shared by all products in the JUVORA range is that they are made from PEEK-OPTIMA™, an implantable high-performance PEEK (polyetheretherketone) polymer from Invibio Biomaterial Solutions. As such, it does not contain a high filler content and therefore does not suffer from the increased brittleness that some high-performance polymers with a relatively high filler content can experience.
