Ivoclar Vivadent’s Ivotion Digital Denture System took the 2020 American College of Prosthodontics (ACP) Annual Session Innovation Award at the ACP’s recent 50th Annual Awards Ceremony.

The ACP Annual Session’s Evolutions and Revolutions in Prosthodontics showcased dental products and materials from 11 companies. Attendees were invited to explore each display and vote on their favorite. The Ivotion Digital Denture System was their top choice.

“This is a wonderful accomplishment and a testament to the innovation of our organization,” said Dr. George Tysowsky, senior vice president of technology and professional relations at Ivoclar Vivadent.

“The American College of Prosthodontists is a highly respected organization that guides dentistry around the world. We are very appreciative of this honor,” he said.

The Ivotion Digital Denture System is a complete digital workflow for the production of high-quality, removable prosthetics, according to the company. Combining the Ivotion bicolored single monolithic milling solution with the PrograMill milling unit enables seamless and efficient production of upper and lower dentures in a single uninterrupted milling process, Ivoclar Vivadent said.

The Ivotion monolithic disc combines high-quality PMMA cross-linked tooth material with a premium denture base material in a single bicolored milling disc for fast and predictable production that eliminates the time-consuming manual tooth-bonding process, the company said.

The Ivotion disc’s Shell Geometry 3-D dental arch structure defines the transition between the tooth and base sections of the milling disc for a stress-free, high-strength, and homogenous transition, Ivoclar Vivadent said.

The exclusive Ivotion CAD design integrated into the 3Shape Dental System 2020 CAD software allows full patient-specific customization of the removable prosthetic to meet patient needs, the company said. The denture arch milled in the PrograMill milling unit only requires polishing before delivery.
