Roland DWX-4 Compact Dental Mill Receives 3M ESPE's Lava(TM) Ultimate Restorative Certification

Roland DWX-4 Compact Dental Mill Receives 3M ESPE's Lava(TM) Ultimate 
Restorative Certification 
IRVINE, CA  -- (Marketwired) -- 01/08/14 --  Roland DGA Corp. has
announced that its new DWX-4 compact dental mill has been qualified
by 3M ESPE for use with the company's Lava Ultimate Restorative resin
nano ceramic material.  
Featuring precise milling capabilities, ease of use, bundled CAM
software and a compact, desktop footprint, the affordable DWX-4 is
Roland's second dental mill to receive the certification. In
September, 3M ESPE qualified Roland's award-winning DWX-50 5-axis
dental milling machine for use with the innovative new material,
making it one of the industry's first open-architecture mills to earn
the certification. 
"Lava Ultimate Restorative is a remarkable new material that helps
expedite production while achieving highly durable, exceptional
quality results," said Brian Brooks, product manager for Roland DGA
Corp. "We are pleased to work with 3M ESPE to bring all the benefits
of this combined solution to labs everywhere." 
"Dental labs have told us that they want access to 3M ESPE materials
from a variety of milling systems," said Kristan Chesnut, global
business director with 3M Digital Oral Care. "By qualifying Lava
Ultimate Restorative with Roland's DWX-50 and DWX-4 milling machines,
we bring high quality materials with more efficient and productive
workflows to dental labs." 
A resin nano ceramic material that offers patients excellent
esthetics and outstanding strength, Lava Ultimate Restorative can be
finished without firing -- dramatically reducing production time. The
material is designed for long-term durability and backed by a 10-year
warranty. Patients experience less wear to the opposing dentition
than with glass ceramics and a tooth-like bite feel due to its
excellent absorption of chewing forces. Should the underlying
dentition need additional treatment or repair, the material is easily
modified and repaired like real tooth structure.  
Measuring 13" x 14" x 16" high, the compact DWX-4 is the ideal
milling machine for labs looking to bring production in house, those
just getting started in digital dentistry, and established digital
labs that need a backup device for urgent jobs. With the DWX-4, these
professionals can mill a single crown or small bridge quickly,
economically and to exacting specifications. Based on proven CNC
milling technology, the DWX-4 supports a wide variety of materials,
including Lava Ultimate Restorative, zirconia, PMMA and wax. Open
architecture by design, it integrates seamlessly into an existing
workflow with commercially available dental CAD/CAM software and
hardware.  
Priced at $17,995, including CAM software, the DWX-4 is available
from authorized Roland dental dealers. For more information,
