JUVORA™ Dental Disc

Smarter technology. Brilliant results. Cleared for Long-Term Use

JUVORA™ is transforming the design and manufacturing options for long-term prosthetics with the JUVORA Dental Disc a high performance polymer non-metal alternative for the CAD/CAM of fixed, removable and implant-borne prosthetic frameworks.

The result: improved processing efficiency and a more comfortable, natural fit for patients.*

Available in a wide range of sizes and thicknesses, the JUVORA™ Dental Disc provides dental labs with several benefits:

  • CAD/CAM driven for manufacturing precision, improving patient fit compared with traditional manufacturing methods
  • Faster production and reduced labour requirements
  • Preformed Dental Discs are available in various thicknesses to accommodate numerous CAD/CAM milling machines

Advanced Material

Our advanced JUVORA Dental Disc is made entirely from a high-performance PEEK polymer, which is unlike any other prosthetic base material. Our material is sourced solely and exclusively from Invibio™ Biomaterial Solutions, the sole provider of PEEK-OPTIMA™ biomaterials worldwide. With over 10 years of proven success and use in millions of implantable medical devices around the world, PEEK is setting a new standard in high performance dental materials.

JUVORA™ Dental Discs offer a unique set of features:

  • The only high performance polymer with a clinical heritage for long-term use
  • Elastic modulus similar to bone – hard, yet flexible, allowing for greater design flexibility
  • High strength-to-weight ratio
  • High resistance to wear, abrasion and corrosion
  • Radiolucency – compatible with X-ray imaging
  • Proven long-term biocompatibility as an implantable material

Quality Promise

 

CERTIFIED BIOCOMPATIBILITY AND QUALITY

The PEEK-OPTIMA™ polymer used in the manufacture of the JUVORA™ dental disc has been produced using enhanced manufacturing procedures within an ISO 13485 certified quality management system. The material is supported by physical, chemical and mechanical testing conducted at key stages of production. Independent laboratories have performed biocompatibility and biostability testing relevant to ISO 10993 and USP Class VI, which has demonstrated excellent conformance to the requirements of these standards.

The material is manufactured to the highest level of purity, with complete material history traceability. Device (MAF) and Drug (DMF) Master Files containing these results, as well as additional testing and extensive data concerning the polymer and its manufacturing methods, are lodged with the FDA. In addition, Invibio embraces all the principles of cGMP or "Current Good Manufacturing Practice" in relation to the manufacturing of the raw material.

LONG-TERM* BIOMATERIAL SOLUTION

Medical device manufactures rely on advanced polymeric biomaterials such as PEEK-OPTIMA™ polymer, for their unique combination of biocompatibility, ideal imaging properties, optimum modulus and excellent chemical resistance.

Because of its versatility, PEEK-OPTIMA™ polymer devices are being investigated and developed in nearly every application area for implants. Device manufactures have used the material in the development of spinal-fusion cages, finger joints, hip and femoral bone replacements, bone screws and pins, and components for implanted cardiac pumps. Today our market research suggests that more than five million medical devices manufactured from PEEK-OPTIMA™ have been implanted.

Invibio’s PEEK-OPTIMA™ high performance polymer represents an ideal biomaterial solution for long-term* medical implant applications and remains a material of choice for the medical device industry. Furthermore, the JUVORA™ dental disc, made from PEEK-OPTIMA™, has been CE, FDA and ANVISA cleared, for long-term* implant borne, fixed and removable prosthetic frameworks, such as dentures, crowns and bridges.
