DWX-4 Dental Milling System Applications

Roland DG’s DWX series high precision dental mills are capable of producing a variety of dental restorations from a wide range of materials. The DWX-4 features 4-axis simultaneous milling and a two-station automatic tool changer for unattended milling of standard blocks and pin-type materials. An optional four-position automatic tool changer supports up to four tools of varying sizes while the optional multi-pin clamp allows you to mill up to four different pin-type materials simultaneously.

 

Materials

  • Zirconia
  • Wax
  • PMMA
  • Composite resin

Crowns

For permanent restorations that completely cover a tooth or dental implant, strength, margins and aesthetics are key considerations. With four-axis simultaneous milling and a two or four-station automatic tool changer, the DWX-4 can mill a single crown in approximately 20 minutes from zirconia, wax or PMMA. You can also mill precision crowns from newer ceramic materials that don’t require sintering, such as VITA ENAMIC® composite resin.

Copings

Coping refers to that part of a crown that covers the prepared tooth and can be easily milled by the DWX-4 from wax for casting, or from a thin ceramic material to which porcelain is applied.

Bridge

The DWX-4 can mill small bridges from wax, PMMA or zirconia.

Abutments

An abutment is a structure that supports a bridge or partial denture. The DWX-4 is capable of milling a variety of abutments including hybrid, screw, glue-based, etc., from a variety of restorative materials.

Inlays and Onlays

Indirect inlays (intracoronal fillings) and Onlays (cusp fillings) can be milled from wax for casting metal, zirconia or composite resins. With its optional 4-station automatic tool changer, the DWX-4 provides the ability to produce the required sharp angles from small tools.

Pontics

A Pontic is that part of a fixed bridge that is suspended between abutments and replaces a missing tooth. Four-axis simultaneous milling and the optional 4-station tool changer allow  the DWX-4  to perform the precision undercuts required.

Temporaries

The DWX-4 quickly mills gradient temporary crowns and small bridges from PMMA that are designed to maintain aesthetics, stability and function while a permanent prosthesis is manufactured.
