How Outsourcing Multiple Products to the Same Milling Centre Can Enhance Your Profits
There are plenty of milling centres out there. If this were not enough, there are also plenty of dental labs, small to
large, that own milling machines and offer their services to make their investments profitable. The problem is many
of them will offer only a limited range of all the products you need. How can we optimize this situation? Why should
you focus on less centres at the same time? Come find all the answers in this lecture.

A Peek At BioHPP – Innovative Materials For Implant-Prosthetics
High-performance polymers have great potential to be used as framework material in dental prosthetics. They are
considerably cheaper than precious alloy substructures while on the other hand, they are lighter and easier to
work with in dental laboratories compared to NPM, titanium or ceramics. Moreover, demand for metal-free dental
prostheses is on the increase with a never-ending search for more aesthetic restorations and more and more cases
of metal intolerance in patients.
This lecture focuses on the production of frameworks demonstrating the scope and flexibility of this innovative
system. It will introduce new opportunities for your laboratory and new treatment options, especially in the field of
large implant frameworks.
BioHPP can be processed simply and conveniently using the “for2press” system from bredent using the lost wax
technique. The necessary investment can easily be recouped within just a few frameworks requiring only a small
amount of training and amendments to the current working practices.
With the for2press, Bio HPP and Visio.lign system solution, bredent is setting new standards in the prosthetic
treatment of implant work and conventional prosthetics.
