Prosthetic Design Centre (PDC) – Virtual to Reality
Thank you for visiting the (Prosthetic Design Centre), PDC website. We hope you enjoy what you see and read. The purpose of this website is to showcase the results of our Research and Development that is undertaken at Stoneglass in Sydney Australia. Stoneglass also want to take this opportunity to publicly thank our valued partners in providing us with the trust of their products, so we can innovate and develop our technology.
At Stoneglass our fundamental belief is that development starts with a patient needing a specific Prosthetic to return to living a normal confident daily life. So what better way in leading the research and development with live cases, that are tracked throughout the full complete clinical design, manufacturing, and patient issue process. The core principles that have been followed with our clinical workflows include:
- accurate measurement of the oral anatomy,
- correct vertical dimensions,
- correct occlusion for function
- final tooth position,
- that leads to a confident smile.
With Prosthetic Design Centre, the final prostheses are designed from these 5 core principles. Every product that you will read and see has been designed by the software solutions in PDC, DentaBite, BiiBCAD, ProsCAD, Shell Crown and Bridge, Virtual BiiB, Surgical planning and Guide, Diagnostic Planning CAD and Custom Tooth Card CAD. Stoneglass engineers have used traditional engineering principles to create software tools that allow the user to experience creativity that has not been available before. This creativity has brought together the dentist and dental technician to collaborate together in a digital communication workflow that results in better patient care. The predictability of the final result is assured because the digital workflow actually quality controls the designing process before any parts are actually manufactured. The final prosthetic part is also quality controlled using traditional quality control tools, “the articulator”. Therefore Stoneglass engineers have brought together traditional “analog” techniques used in the laboratory/surgery and combined them with traditional industrial technologies that then represent innovation that was not possible before.
Every product that you will read and see has been also manufactured by the CAM fully developed on site at Stoneglass. The materials focused on in our onsite developed CAM includes: Heraeus acrylics and denture teeth, Vita denture teeth, super polymers, titanium alloys, zirconia, e.max and non-precious alloys.
Every product that you will read and see has been produced on site using 3D printing, industrial milling and grinding, sintering, laser measuring scanning and touch measurement using CMM metrology.
Every product that you will read and see has been ordered by general dentist, implant dentist and specialist prosthodontist in Australia and other places around the world.
