Technology

Hornsby Denture Clinic is proud to offer the latest in denture processing technology. Ivobase from Ivoclar Vivadent is an injection processing system that offers the user a variety of denture base materials including the tried and long proven high impact Ivocap material.

The choice of materials allows us to process at low heat which is ideal when processing implant cases with large metal structures. Normally the internal temperature of a flask heats the metal well in excess of 100 degrees, which is the ideal maximum temperature for processing heat cure acrylics. With Ivobase high impact implant acrylic the temperature only reaches 65 degrees, therefore minimising stress in the cured resin. With the option of reducing residual monomer to less than 1% there is no better acrylic on the market for these types of restorations.

At HDC we offer a wide range of prosthetic services from conventional dentures to implant prosthetics. Local and U.S. milling providers are used to supply our milled bars for fixed and removable prosthetics. Implant components can be sought through a provider of your choice or if desired, sourced by the laboratory. We are capable of managing all implant case types from simple locator overdentures to complex fixed/removable cases.

All dentures, conventional or implant borne, are produced by injection processing in Ivocap and the new Ivobase. Adjustable articulators are used that enable templated setups ensuring a consistent compensating and wilson curve. Model analysis and average values are measured against individual records to determine a predictable functional and aesthetic result.

The laboratory has a wealth of experience and knowledge on staff to handle your requirements. We welcome clients to the lab to meet the staff and have a tour of the production facility which we are always proud to show off.

IvoBase System

IvoBase Injector permits a fully automated, controlled injection and polymerization procedure of special PMMA resins which are coordinated with the system. The chemical shrinkage of the resin is entirely compensated during polymerization thanks to the patented temperature control in the flask and the heater. This enables the fabrication of denture bases featuring high accuracy of fit and precision. The injector has been especially developed for the IvoBase material and permits excellent restorations. The IvoBase Injector can also be used for the tried-and-tested SR Ivocap material.
