DENMAT RECEIVES FDA 510K AND ENTERS THE ORTHODONTIC CLEAR ALIGNER BUSINESS
Lompoc, CA, Feb 20, 2020 - DenMat Holdings, LLC (“DenMat”), announces that it is entering the clear aligner market after receiving its FDA 510k for its new system in December of 2019. The 510k clearance allows the company to market, sell, design, manufacture and deliver orthodontic clear aligners to dental professionals and dental laboratories alike. Recently, the company acquired rights to the tradename “OrthoClear”, which will serve as the flagship brand for this new service offering.
“OrthoClear™ aligners are a perfect extension of services for the DenMat Lab,” says Robert Cartagena, COO for DenMat Holdings, LLC. “We specialize in large, complex cases, full-arch restorations, and high-end esthetics. Clear aligners are already being offered in the majority of our customers’ practices, and the demand for this service has been quite high from this group,” he shares.
“The availability of new digital manufacturing platforms allows DenMat to continue serving as a trusted partner for dental professionals, while expanding our laboratory services into what is a high growth area of dentistry,” Cartagena adds.
OrthoClear™ aligners are a natural addition for DenMat, the company behind the Lumineers® veneer system. Additionally, OrthoClear™ offers these key benefits:
- 3D Virtual Treatment Plan so that clinicians can review the tooth movements and anticipated results prior to the manufacturing stage for the aligners
- A quick 5-day turnaround time for Virtual Treatment Plans
- A 5-day turnaround time for the fabrication and delivery of custom aligners
- Competitive pricing, which enables clinicians to adopt this service and expand their patient base for orthodontic treatment
Through the use of orthodontic aligners, dental professionals are able to offer a straightforward service to treat patients who have crowding, spacing issues, and malocclusion, at a fraction of the lab fees typically associated with such treatment. With global consumer demand for clear aligners growing, OrthoClear™ provides a cost-effective, dentist-supervised alternative for treatment as opposed to the “do-it-yourself” systems recently introduced to consumers.
