Announcing FREE Rush For PRO-Craft Customers
As the old adage goes “time is money” With this in mind we wanted to announce to you that PRO-Craft offers FREE Rush cases to our loyal clients as a way of encouraging your patients to proceed with treatment. Sometimes we realize the difference in being able to perform a treatment may be having the ability to rush a case for a patient because “life happens”, vacations, marriages etc.
So remember. We have your back, we are here to serve you. Our policy is to help you get your cases earlier than our normal 7 day working time when necessary. Just call the lab before sending the case to pre-approve your rush case and we will ask you to “flag” the case so that it will sail through without a question.
As always, we appreciate any feedback you can give us to help improve your overall experience working with the PRO-Craft family. Thank you for your help and consideration. ∞ Read more
Instructions For Seating ALLZ and Other Zirconia Based C&B Restorations
Like most metals, zirconia exhibits a strong affinity for phosphate groups. We can take advantage of this fact with phosphate containing primers, such as Z-Prime Plus. (BISCO DENTAL) Unfortunately, saliva also contains phosphates in the form of phospholipids, so when an ALLZ Zirconia C&B is tried in the patient's mouth and comes in contact with saliva, the phosphate groups in the saliva bind to the zirconia oxide and cannot be rinsed out with water. Attempting to use phosphoric acid (which is full of phosphate groups) to “clean” the saliva out only makes the problem worse.
The recommended way to successfully remove these phosphate groups from the interior of a crown is with the use of Ivoclean from Ivoclar. This is a zirconia oxide solution placed inside the restoration for 20 seconds and rinsed out. Due to the large concentration of free zirconia oxide in the Ivoclean, it acts as a sponge and binds to the phosphate groups that were previously bound to the ALLZ restoration. Once the Ivoclean is rinsed out , you will have a fresh bonding surface for the Z-Prime Plus to bond to. ∞ Read more

Have you noticed there is a huge flaw in the current monolithic zirconia materials provided by dental laboratories? Yeah the esthetics are marginal. They are missing the big three game changers in quality ceramics - Iridescence, Opalescence and Fluorescence. Only the best ceramics in the world have all three. Honestly I know why other labs don’t have these elements in their monolithic zirconia crowns, it’s costly to develop and is time restrictive to produce. At Pro-Craft we have invested the past year and a half developing a NEW way to deliver all three elements to you in your zirconia products using our ALL Z® and ALL Z Plus® solid zirconia. ∞ Read more
The EMA oral appliance from Myerson increases airway space by advancing the mandible using interchangeable elastic straps. EMA elastic straps come in 9 different lengths (see figure A,) and 4 different strengths (see figure B). The shorter the ema elastic strap, the farther the mandible is advanced (see figure C). 36 different straps allow for the most effective repositioning with maximum comfort. ∞ Read more

Synergy is created when all three parts, working together in harmony, create something greater than they could as individuals. This is the philosophy behind TRIAD Diagnostic Wax-Ups. ∞ Read more
