Full Contour Zirconia
With a four-year clinical history of working with full-contour zirconia and more than 300,000 crowns seated, NDX provides an economical, efficient solution for posterior restorations when strength is at a premium. With these virtually unbreakable all-ceramic crowns, you can provide your patients the strength to withstand severe parafunctional activity and avoid metal restorations. Most commonly known as BruxZir®, the full-contoured zirconia crown or bridge contains no porcelain overlay. It is glazed with a smooth surface and functions optimally in the posterior. Benefits include: superior strength, a smooth metal-free finish to the gum line, biocompatible medial-grade zirconia and CAD/CAM fabrication for a consistent fit.
e.max is the ultimate in metal-free esthetics, producing exceptionally beautiful restorations that are virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth, while still providing ample structural strength for many indications. e.max is the only lithium disilicate ceramic being used in dentistry today. This unique material can be milled from pre-manufactured block, or it can be pressed from a pre-manufactured ingot. NDX laboratories offer both monolithic and layered e.max solution to fulfill our clinicians’ esthetic preferences for their patients.
Monolithic Option :
- Strong, yet beautifully translucent lithium disilicate ceramic
- Hand stained, brushed and glazed by a professional ceramist
- Core material is strong, yet beautifully translucent lithium disilicate ceramic
- Cosmetic cutback with porcelain overlay yields a more natural appearance
- Shade applications achieve the most esthetically appealing finishes
Porcelain fused-to-zirconia (PFZ) crown and bridge work is a leading example of how innovation transforms our product offerings. By integrating the most technologically advanced CAD/CAM systems and leveraging our partner network to access premium zirconia, NDX has created a zirconia crown and bridge solution that combines the strength and metal-free characteristics of a zirconia substrate, with the esthetics of a porcelain overlay. PFZ stands out from other all-ceramic restorations in that it can be prescribed in the posterior and anterior with unlimited bridge span.
The Lava all-ceramic system from 3M™ ESPE™ provides cutting-edge CAD/CAM precision and esthetics for all-ceramic crowns and bridges on a zirconium oxide base. Lava’s CAD/CAM origins allow for less tooth structure removal, as well as conventional cementation placement. Lava also features natural-looking esthetics, incredible strength and superior biocompatibility. NDX laboratories offer the full suite of Lava products: Lava, Lava Plus High-Translucency, and Lava Ultimate CAD/CAM material, a resin nano-ceramic product that is both cementable and easy to adjust.
Captek uses advanced Capillary Casting Technology to produce the gold coping for Captek crowns and bridges. This unique composite metal is 88 percent gold, reinforced with small particles of high-fusing and high-strength platinum and palladium. The result is a restoration with the vital and natural look of gold, the superior strength and durability of platinum and palladium and the extra benefit of reducing harmful bacteria around the gums. All NDX Captek restorations use Captek Nano. Originally developed for the increased strength needed for bridge and implant applications, Captek Nano’s higher thermal stability makes it possible to create consistently tighter margins with greater accuracy.
Porcelain fused-to-metal (PFM) crown and bridge work provides a tried-and-true combination of durability and esthetics. Our technical teams create restorations using a variety of approved and certified casting alloys and the finest ceramic systems. By combining the latest manufacturing technology with the skills of highly trained dental technicians, PFM restorations look great and have minimal seating time. Amidst a proliferation of new products, PFM restorations remain a vital option for crown and bridge restoration work.
Over the next decade the number of edentulous dental patients will increase dramatically. And for many of those patients, a fixed implant solution will not be an option. For that reason our NDX laboratories have placed a high priority in developing a number of removable prosthetic solutions. Our complete dentures are designed to be occlusally balanced, retentive, comfortable, and meet the esthetic desires of the individual patient. Whether we are using the Ivocap® injection process or the Massaad Technique, the goal remains the same: to create an esthetic and functional smile and transform the life of the patient.
Removable prosthetics are often complex and require a great deal of cooperation between the clinician and the laboratory. Pricing is often complex and unpredictable. With our denture bundles, you have the ability to choose a predictably priced product that fits your patients’ financial and esthetic needs while providing you the ability to manage your profitability.
Flexible partial dentures are a resin-based removable solution that is ideal for partial dentures and unilateral restorations. The resin is a biocompatible nylon thermoplastic with unique physical and esthetic properties that provide unlimited design versatility and eliminates the concern about acrylic allergies. Patients find the product to be comfortable because it is thin, lightweight, and flexible. Patients also appreciate the fact that the material does not absorb odor or take on stains.
The most common complaint about flexible partials is that they are difficult to adjust. DuraFlex Flexible Partials resolve that issue. Made with a state-of-the-art thermoplastic material, adjusting DuraFlex will not gum up your tools like other flexible partials. The result is a partial that is easier to adjust, easier to polish and has better color stability. It also offers fantastic esthetics with veined acrylic in two shades. The material is translucent allowing the natural coloring of the tissue to show through the material causing DuraFlex to virtually disappear in the mouth. DuraFlex is more dense than conventional acrylic dentures for a slick finish that, unlike nylon based materials, will not discolor, and is highly resistant to stains and odors.
ClearFrame is an exclusive product only offered by NDX laboratories. It is designed like a traditional cast metal partial but the denture acrylic is made from a state-of-the-art injection-molded nylon material that is strong and nonporous and is easy to adjust and re-polish. The frame and clasps are semi-rigid and transparent. Rest seats provide the partial with the vertical stability dentists desire without compromising the lifelike esthetics that today’s patients prefer. ClearFrame is indicated for most partial applications. Patients will appreciate the precise fit, comfortable function and metal free esthetics that ClearFrame provides.
For years the standard of care for partially edentulous patients, the cast metal partial continues be an option for when strength is at a premium. Offered in both traditional and hidden clasp styles, the cast partial framework is the perfect solution when bridgework or implants are not a treatment plan option.
Implant dentistry is often a challenging and expensive venture for patients. Deep collaboration between the dentist, the oral surgeon, and an experienced laboratory is at the core of any successful implant case.
From the simplicity and flexibility of a single-tooth implant to the most complex full mouth rehabilitation, NDX laboratories possess the resources and experience necessary to create functional and lifelike smiles to meet any treatment plan. To simplify complex pricing structures often associated with implants, our Implant Suites provide an easy-to-use system that allows clients to choose the right solution for the patient with the peace of mind that comes from a predictably priced case.
We invite you to contact your local NDX laboratory to learn more about our comprehensive suite of implant solutions that can be custom tailored to meet your specific needs.
Our bite splints and mouth guards are designed to fit the occlusal specifications of the individual patient – ideal for those situations when wear is showing due to bruxing or when there is a desire to add an extra level of protection to a new prosthetic. Whether the situation calls for a hard material, soft material, or some combination of the two, our laboratories have the perfect solution.
For athletes, NDX laboratories offer a wide variety of sports guards. A significant upgrade over “boil and bite” guards, our sports mouth guards provide unmatched protection and a comfortable, custom fit.
The NTI-tss Plus™ does the job of a bite guard, but covers only the front teeth. The NTI-tss Plus is a small, clear, “taco shell”-shaped appliance. Attached on the incisal edge of the shell is an anterior-posterior discluding element (DE) that provides for a point stop on the mesial-incisal edges of the two opposing central incisors.
The NTI-tss Plus is made from Clear 450® thermoplastic material. The high-heat, high-pressure injection process guarantees a perfect fit with proven durability. Clear 450 is clinically unbreakable, provides a perfect fit with no shrinkage and will not absorb stains or odors. Clear 450 does not contain Bisphenol-A.
Developed by James P. Boyd, DDS, the NTI-tss Plus therapeutic protocol is the only laboratory-produced, customizable alternative to the chairside NTI-tss. Originally developed to prevent migraine pain, the NTI-tss Plus has proven to be a superior alternative to full-coverage bite guards.
The NTI-tss Plus is available only through NDX laboratories.
TAP 3 and TAP Elite
Two of the most common oral appliances designed for relief of Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) disorder are the TAP 3 and TAP Elite appliances. TAP is made of two custom inter-occlusal parts that fit over the mandible and the maxilla. The upper portion of the device hooks into the lower portion, enabling the mandible to be pulled forward. Using a dial mechanism, the appliance is titratable, allowing adjustment to determine the degree to which the jaw is held forward. By holding the mandible forward, the TAP maintains a clear airway to reduce snoring and improve breathing. The TAP Elite allows more lateral movement, improving patient comfort and compliance.
EMA is a simple, patient-friendly oral appliance for noninvasive treatment of snoring and Obstructive Sleep Apnea. Sleep Apnea is the temporary cessation of breathing during sleep. Sleep Apnea sufferers will often snore or awake gasping for breath. Apnea-related disturbances occur repeatedly, resulting in restless sleep and daytime drowsiness. The disease can cause serious health issues including increased blood pressure and the restriction of oxygen to the brain and blood stream. EMA is relatively less expensive than other oral appliance therapy for sleep apnea.
