Baby Boomers
Mean Big Boom
in Demand for Partials
by Kris Schermerhorn, CDT

"The aging of baby boomers means that within just a couple of
decades, older people are projected to outnumber children for the
first time in U.S. history," said Jonathan Vespa, a demographer with
the U.S. Census Bureau. [US Census Bureau, 2018]
The aging U.S. population will be transformative for the dental
industry, especially in the area of removable prosthetics. Removable
partial dentures ("RPD") are already a proven and cost-effective
treatment option for the partially dentate patient. The baby-boomer
generation, all of whom will have reached 65 years of age by 2030,
are increasingly looking for the most aesthetic, comfortable, and
metal-free treatment options. Advanced thermoplastic materials
are ideally suited to help meet that expanding need among the
older population.
Myerson is a leader in offering advanced thermoplastic for making
metal-free partial denture frameworks, both tooth-borne and
tissue-borne. Myerson's popular DuraFlex and VisiClear materials
are now available in a millable disc, which integrates seamlessly
into a digital workflow.
Due to its unique chemical properties, DuraFlex and its sister
product, VisiClear, do not absorb water, resulting in a partial denture
that is resistant to stains, bacteria, and odors. In the event that
the surface is stained, the appliance can easily be restored with a
cleaner or polish. Adding clasps or making repairs is simple and
takes less than 30 minutes with Myerson's Hot Shot Elite injector.
A digital workflow results in an excellent fit due to the accuracy
offered by scanned models and digital manufacturing.

In a time where removable dentures are increasing, and the
availability of trained removable technicians is decreasing, it is
difficult for a laboratory to keep up with production demands.
Now is the time to move into the digital arena and evolve with
the industry. Digital Dentistry is a viable alternative for saving
time and money in your laboratory. Whether or not you have
a scanner, printer, or mill, your laboratory can fabricate digital
dentures immediately.
This lecture will cover how each laboratory can save time when
fabricating dentures and increase productivity and profits without
adding any additional overhead costs. We will share a comparative
review of outsourced digitally fabricated dentures as well as discuss
many different workflows and outsourcing options for printed or
milled dentures.
Learning Objectives:
* What type of denture looks more esthetic-printed or milled?
* How do the digitally fabricated teeth wear?
* Can they be repaired?
You do not want to miss this presentation and the opportunity to
address these questions and challenges when going from analog
to digital fabrication for dentures.
I look forward to sharing my journey and experiences as I transitioned
from an analog to digital technician.

Whether you are a removable lab interested in going digital
or a digital lab interested in adding a removable department,
DuraFlex CAD and VisiClear CAD represent new opportunities to
become more efficient, expand your product offering, and deliver a
cutting-edge product that doctors and patients alike will appreciate.
