Little has changed with removable partial dentures (RPDs) over the decades. Metal frames are still being used despite the fact that they are heavy, can damage remaining teeth, and may cause a metallic aftertaste. Plus, patients complain about the look of metal in their mouths.
Today, there is a new solution from Solvay Dental 360™ and Dental Prosthetic Services that changes the way dentists and patients think about RPD frames.
Ultaire™ AKP is an innovative, high-performance polymer that reduces the need for metal RPDs. Digitally designed and milled by DPS from Dentivera™ milling discs, RPDs made from Ultaire™ AKP diminish the all-too-common pain points of metal for dentists and patients alike.
Ultaire™ AKP – an innovative, high-performance polymer that’s a game changer in RPDs.
For patients who can’t bear the thought of visible metal clasps or a metallic taste, Ultaire™ AKP frames deliver a high degree of satisfaction:
- Taste free
- Pleasing aesthetics
- Bone-like and tooth-supported
- May minimize bone loss
We’re excited about this new material – and the opportunity to help you provide polymer frame RPDs your patients will love.
