01
it keeps cases organized.
02
it makes communication a snap.
03
it makes sure you get paid.
04
it helps manage your clients and your team.
05
it prevents redundancies.
With management software, it’s easy to track the entire course
of a case. View all of the dentist’s notes, scans and images in one
spot, and follow the workflow of the case, to see where it is in
production and who is working on it.
Easily send messages internally, or externally to your clients. With all
your contact information centralized in one system, you can easily
send communications to dental practices with updates or questions
about specific cases, marketing materials, announcements and more.
You can even use some software to communicate with a dentist about
a case in real time.
Keeping track of invoices and deadlines can be a pain, but
management software can keep tabs on all those terms and dates
for you. You’ll never have to wonder if an invoice has been paid
again.
Payroll, billing and tax tracking, all in one place? Lab management
software makes it easy to keep your financials and employee
information in order.
With real-time information about every case at your fingertips,
duplications or miscommunications won’t be a problem, saving
your lab time and money. Additionally, it will free up your time (and
your team’s time) to do the work you actually want to do.

COMPLETE MAXILLARY AND MANDIBULAR REHABILITATION USING PRETTAU® ANTERIOR
The patient presented with severely abraded occlusal surfaces throughout the upper and lower jaw. Since the gingiva and the natural tooth structure were otherwise still well preserved,
we decided to provide single-crown restorations made of Prettau® Anterior. This material has a flexural strength of 670 MPa and is therefore well suited to withstand the high loads it
would be exposed to in this patient.

When Paul Cascone, senior vice president of research
and development at Argen, speaks to a potential dental
lab customer, he always leads with the benefts of digital
technology. “I tell them it can broaden their oferings,
eliminate inventory, cut waste and signifcantly boost
their productivity,” he says. Tose advantages can be
powerfully persuasive for the laboratories who are
listening.
For years, the manufacture of dental prostheses has
been based on the lost-wax method, which has roots
in 5,000-year-old investment casting techniques. In
this approach, dentists rely on a molded impression

Currently, SLM systems are gaining popularity for dental
applications, and in some countries this technology has
almost completely replaced casting. In the U.S., dentists
are increasingly requesting products that force labs to
get involved with digital workfows, Cascone explains.
But those labs still have a choice about how fast and
fully to embrace digitalization.
If they are thinking about all-ceramic units, they
can either invest in a scanner and milling machine,
or they can just purchase the scanner and outsource
the rest. “Lab size and work volume may dictate their
An example of Argen Digital’s SLM capabilities.
In the U.S., several types of metals—nobles, high
nobles and base alloys—are used widely by dental
labs and dentists. While base materials predominate,
Argen wanted to ofer digitally produced precious-metal
products to the domestic market. So, they decided to
develop their own noble alloy (containing 25 percent
palladium) suitable for laser sintering. Of importance
in their research eforts were characteristics such as
biocompatibility, porcelain compatibility, thermal
properties, mechanical strength and corrosion/tarnish
resistance. Tousands of possible metal combinations
were evaluated, followed by feld testing of the best candidates. Te result: Argen is now a leader in SLM Noble
substructures.
With a frst success in hand, the company decided
to undertake another development project to meet the
marketplace’s broad spectrum of needs. This effort
involved an even more durable high-noble alloy (made
with 40 percent gold and at least 20 percent of another
precious metal such as platinum or palladium). “It was
challenging, but we were successful,” Cascone notes.
“We invest heavily in R&D with a focus on increasing

concentrate on the important esthetic and functional
aspects of applying the ceramic. Tis represents a change
in their business model, but they’re really excited about
the change.”
For the dental laboratory, taking the digital path can
be a game changer, according to Cascone. In a small lab,
a scanner can help them expand their product ofering.
In a large production lab, the whole scale of the operation can be transformed. “A skilled technician using
traditional hand operations can make about 20 units
in a day,” he explains. “If you take that same person and
train them to use a scanner and software, output accelerates to 80 units a day. Tat’s why labs are switching.”
”
After hearing about the digital workfow, how long
does it take a laboratory to decide to switch? “If it’s a
lab that doesn’t have a scanner, then typically there’s
a little more conversation,” Cascone says. “If it’s a lab
that already has one, they’re usually ready to send us

Questions
TEN
02. A n a xd e n t N o r t h A m e r i c a
recently began distribution
of Pekkton (Cendres + Métaux), a new
high-performance polymer, in the U.S.
You’ve been working with it—what
kinds of cases do you primarily use
Pekkton for? Do you use the millable
or the pressable version?
The case selection is really infinite. You can
use it almost anywhere you would use alloys
or zirconia. It combines for me the best of both
worlds with very little negatives. I’m working
with both methods, and both are good. The
pressable version requires more skill and handson and is the more effcient route for me.
Q+A
Ricky Grillo
MDT, CO-OWNER
OF HYBRIDGE IMPLANTS
01. What is your background in
the lab world? What is your
lab’s specialty?
My background is a German mastership in
dental technology and science. I spent the
first 15 years of my career in Germany and
graduated in Cologne. Shortly after, I came
to the USA, where I worked for two different
laboratories before I founded our laboratory
eight years ago. I act as a part owner and
facilitate all operations in the laboratory. We
have 25 specialized hybrid dental technicians
and manufacture all cases on a high-end
level with a streamlined process. The process
involves the best possible materials, CAD/CAM
technology, like printing and milling, and a good
mix of new and traditional techniques. We are
a full-service lab, and our specialty is full-arch
cases, primarily screw-retained full-arch Hybrid
bridges. On average, we complete 150 of them
a month in different material varieties, including
zirconia. I’m personally leading our research
and development team, and I’m very involved
in fnding new and better ways of streamlining
the process.
03. How long have you worked
with Pekkton?
For about six month now. I went to Europe
and trained with Cendres Méteaux and the
boys from Beever dental laboratory in England.
They came up with a variety of really great
processes that are applicable in our laboratory
or anywhere else for that matter. The biggest
advantage I see is as a bar material for our
hybrid bridges. They came out fantastic.
04. What was your experience
working with Pekkton?
It has been great. It is super light and very strong
and is the perfect material for a hybrid screwretained bridge. It’s very easy to work with, and
it can be very cost-effective. Again, it combines
the best of alloys and zirconia in the framework
world. If this material would be translucent and
would come in tooth colors, you could make
anything out of it. Unfortunately, that’s not the
case, and, therefore, it has to be laminated with
either composite or acrylics.
05. Why is Pekkton particularly
suited to the work you do?
The environment for implant bridges is brutal.
With missing proprioception, patients tend to
display excessive bite forces. That can cause
chipping and breaking on traditional designs.
Pekkton has favorable compressive strength
that works as a shock absorber without being
fexible. It can be much more cost-effective and
offers a wide range of design options.
06. What are some of the other
advantages to working with
a high-performance polymer versus
another type of material like metal or
zirconia?
You can bond pretty much anything to it: it
works as a shock absorber without being
fexible, is very strong, can be sterilized and is
radiolucent, non-allergenic and lightweight. It
is impossible for us to make it non-passive. It
always fts passive, which is key for us in the
laboratory..
07. What makes Pekkton different
from other types of HPP?
Pekkton is the only HPP that has the right
rigidity and composition to make bars with.
The extra ketone molecule gets us the right
composition for the indications we need. The
support from Anaxdent and Cendre Méteaux
and the whole integrity of the system and its
high-end application was key. I found this is the
only material that will do what I need for my
approach. They are also going to come out with
tooth-colored Pekkton. The option of a costeffective pressing solution was also extremely
attractive and should be for any smaller highend laboratory or any other that doesn’t have a
CAD/CAM system.
08. What kind of support were
you offered?
Anaxdent has been really great about getting us
materials and sending us lecturers. I very often
call Germany and the team at Anaxdent and
get tips and hints. The team in North America
has been very knowledgeable, and if they don’t
know the answer to my question, they fnd out.
The materials are supreme—they’re expensive,
but you get what you pay for.
09. What makes Pekkton a good
solution for labs of all sizes?
The pressing version; bigger labs will probably
be using the CAD/CAM solution. Smaller
labs or labs without CAD/CAM could get the
inexpensive press and be as attractive to
customers as the big labs. You can make some
great high-end cases with this little investment.
10. What feedback have you gotten
from dentists/patients?
Everybody was amazed. They were very
surprised by how light it was and the real highend look of it. Especially the version with e.max
crowns bonded to them and the Anaxgum
gingiva. Everyone pointed out how much more
elegant and natural they look. We also create
gingiva on the palatal side to integrate these
bridges also from a “look-and-feel“ perspective.
They loved the ease of use and handling it, and
it is easy to change or add anything in case of
tissue resorption for example. Not to repeat
myself, but it has the best of both worlds in
terms of framework of zirconia and alloys.
