Frequently Asked Questions

Where do I send my physical records?

AvaDent Digital Dental Solutions
15730 North 83rd Way, Ste 101
Scottsdale, AZ 85260

Can you use my STL design file (ie. 3Shape, ExoCad) to fabricate a final denture?

We do accept STL scan files of impressions and reference dentures; then we will design the denture using our proprietary software. But we cannot make a denture from an STL design file created by a 3rd party.

Can you fabricate my existing denture into a final AvaDent?

Yes, however, it will never be an EXACT duplicate, but we do match very closely to the original denture. You can see the referenced denture in the Design phase when you review the setup.

Can I make a payment online?

AvaDent has launched a new payment system called PayFabric. Integrating the payment system into our platform, making it easier and simple for customers to pay their invoices. Please call customer support at 480-275-7144.

Do you provide me FREE shipping labels?

AvaDent does not provide free shipping labels. However, due to our high-volume contract with FedEx we can offer you lower pricing. You can order 2-day or Standard Overnight labels. Call or email our Customer Service team for additional questions.

What is the difference between XCL-1 and XCL-2?

Both dentures are monolithic (“one-piece”), fully-milled digital dentures. XCL stands for “eXtreme Cross Link”, which indicates that it is a very strong material.

The XCL-1 denture has monochromatic teeth (1-layer dentin base) and the XCL-2 has polychromatic teeth (1-layer dentin base + 1-layer enamel.)

What is a Bouma Try-In and a WTI?

Both products are try-in dentures.

A BTI stands for a Bouma Try-In created by Dr. Lars Bouma. The Bouma Try-In is a monolithic (“one-piece”) fully milled or printed Try-In made entirely out of the tooth color of your choosing from the available shade catalog in our system.

A WTI stands for a Wagner Try-In created by Dr. Stephen Wagner. The WTI is a printed Try-In denture base made entirely out of the tooth color of your choosing from the available shade catalog in our system. The teeth are printed individually for the maxillary anterior teeth and printed as a block of mandibular anterior teeth. The teeth are set in a special wax for easy manipulation and adjustment. The posteriors are printed or a block of wax rims, depending on your patient’s needs.

How do I order a remake of a denture with or without changes?

To order a remake please log-in to AvaDent Dashboard and select Orders. Search for the order of your patient by name or case number. Once you have the case pulled up you will see an option for “Place a Follow-Up Order” that is indicated by a “+” sign. Once you select this you will be prompted to choose 1 of 4 options for what kind of follow up order is needed for your patient’s treatment plan. Follow each prompt from top to bottom. What you select first affects what you can select next.

What if there are problems with the denture I received?

This depends on the nature of the problem. Contact Customer Service at customerserviceus@avadent.com, contact the clinical support team at clinicalsupport@avadent.com or call us at 480-275-7144 to discuss the case.

What is your warranty policy?

An AvaDent denture has a 1-year warranty time frame. The Fixed Removable Hybrid with Integrated Printed Titanium Bar denture has a 5-year warranty time frame.

What records do I need to send?

In general, we will always need an accurate final impression showing these key factors: Midline, Centric Relation, Occlusal Vertical Dimension, Anterior Tooth Size, Lip Support, Incisal Edge Location. For a single arch we will also need an opposing record.  The denture will only be as good as the records received.

How long will my case take to complete?

Once we receive your records and all information is provided, we start the digital process. We will send you the digital set-up within 48 hours, depending on the time you have sent us the order and complete information. You will be asked to review the design and approve or request changes (if you selected that you wanted a preview). Once the Design setup is approved, or auto approved, it will take 5-7 business days to complete the manufacturing of your denture.

We then ship the case via FedEx with 2-Day shipping. Please note that if you do not approve the digital setup in a timely manner, the case will be on hold until you have approved the design. This might delay your case. If you need cases sooner than our time frame you will need to indicate it on the Rx, email us, or call us. AvaDent Dashboard will automatically UPDATE the Estimated Return Date once the Design is approved/auto approved.  Please keep this in mind when scheduling your patients.

What tooth molds are in your digital library?

We offer Dentsply Portrait, Ivoclar BlueLine (SR Vivodent DCL), Ivoclar IvoStar, Candular NFC+ Candulor TCR moulds.

How do I send digital files?

Once you submit an Rx through AvaDent Dashboard you will be prompted with a Notification for a Records Request. You will need to select the “Submit/Ship” option and upload your records. DO NOT write in the physical records section unless you plan on sending physical records, otherwise your case will be put on an unnecessary hold.

How can I send photos once I have already submitted an Rx on the AvaDent Dashboard?

If you were unable to upload photos during the Rx process you will need to email the photos to our customer service team at customerserviceus@avadent.com. Please include the case number in the email.
