CEO Audio Interview
Preferred Dental Implant Corp. (PDIC) is a Canadian developer of a patented design of innovative components used to create custom dental abutments in the growing dental implant market. The market is estimated to grow at a rate of 7.2% from $7.3 billion in 2015 to $10.4 billion in 2020. PDIC views its EVOLUTIONARY ACCESSORY SERIES (EAS) as a disruptive technology and plans an aggressive commercial launch in 2017. The EAS provides necessary simple solutions in an efficient manner that solves everyday problems experienced by dental labs and dentists on a daily basis. The EAS was developed by Ernst Siegmund, R.D.T., a European-trained dental technician with over 40 years experience in the field, as a result of issues encountered every day for implants in dental laboratories. He succeeded in developing a product that provides a solution to each remaining issue that plagued dental implants.
By mastering principles of engineering and science, we have developed a simple, four part solution to creating a perfect dental implant mounting system. Ideal for any prosthetic structure from bridge to single tooth replacement, using the EAS assists in easily and economically providing the following solutions for lab technicians and dentists:
1) OVERCOME ANGULATION PROBLEMS
2) RETRIEVE PARTS EASILY FOR CLEANING AND INSPECTION
3) MINIMIZE PROBLEMS ASSOCIATED WITH VERTICAL OR LOOSE SCREWS
4) CREATE ANATOMICALLY, HYGIENICALLY AND FUNCTIONAL CORRECT RESTORATIONS
Our EAS products are engineered to be compatible with the majority of today’s popular implant bodies offered. This provides ease of use and flexibility of design to all dental technicians, allows for superior aesthetics and ensures easy retrieval and maintenance over patient’s lifetime.
PDIC continues to innovate and will introduce complementary products and services as developed. The diagram below shows the universality of the EAS compatibility with major implant manufacturers.
The EAS offering of a narrow and wide platform provides unsurpassed simplicity in inventory control and substantially reduces capital required for inventory.
The domed mounting base allows for unlimited angulation when designing a case, the only decision to be made is determination of a wide or narrow platform which is determined by the size of the case being prepared. The two EAS platforms replace the majority of angled abutments.
Rather than needing to determine height, width and angle out of a catalogue of hundreds of available abutments, dental labs only need to inventory 2 EAS platforms (wide and narrow – specific to each manufacturer) which replace standard abutments
