The AvaDent Digital Workflow is a critical asset for a dental professional practice. For the first time in removable prosthetics history, dental professionals are able to utilize CAE (computer aided engineering) to design and modify a denture setup virtually. The days of using a Bunsen burner and waxing instruments are a thing of the past. Today these changes are made in just a mouse click.
The AvaDent Digital Workflow provides a means of outsourcing production to AvaDent’s state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities in Scottsdale, AZ and in Europe, The Netherlands. By outsourcing the production of dentures, overdentures and hybrids, you as a dental professional can benefit in ways you never experienced before.

Outsourcing has been practiced for many years, but today it is changing traditional business models for dentures and dental services provided to dental professionals.
Outsourcing is, simply put, having the patient case entirely or partially manufactured by other parties or specialists. Lacking capital intensive or special equipment, new technologies or a low production capacity might be good reasons to consider using dental lab outsourcing services from specialized providers. Outsourcing is not off-shoring where the manufacturing is typically transferred to a low labor cost country. Outsourcing has been a key strategy in the automotive and aerospace industries for years for providing improved efficiencies and quicker turnaround. In short, outsourcing of dental lab services will improve profit margins and production timelines.
For decades, dental lab outsourcing has been used for metal-based partial dentures, calling on specialized labs that had the equipment and skillset to manufacture these dentures. Later, after new, capital intensive technologies such as CAD/CAM milling of zirconia or metal bars were introduced to the dental market, dental labs started sending cases to specialized labs or milling centers that provided these new services. These denture and dental services have been enabling labs of all sizes to participate in the new technologies without making large investments and to provide new products to their doctors and patients. As a consequence, traditional dentures and dental services business models started to change.
AvaDent Digital Dentures’ breakthrough and unique technology is based on Computer Aided Engineering (CAE). The revolutionary proprietary software and automated manufacturing are deployed in the state-of-the-art manufacturing centers in Scottsdale, Arizona, and Tilburg, the Netherlands. From these locations AvaDent provides digital dentures globally to dental laboratories, denturists and prosthodontics. This outsourcing service allows dental professionals to offer superior dentures with an exceptional fit, natural esthetics, and a virtually indestructible single piece denture that eliminates breakage through our material and manufacturing processes that cannot be replicated in a traditional dental lab.
Utilizing AvaDent’s denture services, you can now provide breakthrough digital products such as the AvaDent Digital Denture and the implant supported AvaDent Dentures like hybrids and overdentures. These are all within reach for every dental professional that wants to join the digital revolution without making large investments in capital equipment, having high risks or learning new skills. Outsourcing digital dentures is just one click away.

“I treat more patients and I don’t have to work overtime anymore. Win-win situation also for my private life”
“When I completely shift to AvaDent I reduced my overall costs and it’s saved me a lot of time.”
“I love to work with the Bio-functional Try-In by Lars Bouma. My patients can experience the comfort of the AvaDent at home and due to the digital back-up it’s easy to process it to a final denture.”
“When you get used to the 3D viewer and digital design you will get a predictable outcome.”
“The 3D viewer is ideal. I now have a great collaboration with my lab and a predictable outcome.”
“I didn’t need to adjust my workflow to get an AvaDent and because of all the different record techniques I’m flexible so I can provide my patients with a suitable solution”
“The first appointment takes a little longer and I learned myself to do it correct the first time. Now I have a final denture in half the (chair) time.”
“We where able to increase the production without increasing overhead expenses”
“We increased the overall operational efficiency. Our dental technicians are able to make design adjustments very fast with the AvaDent Connect Software. Therefore enabling him or her to produce more cases per day or even learn them to help the dentist chair side to get more cases in.”
“Reproduce a denture by one click of a button, what normally take us back to the beginning. We now can offer spare dentures and a digital back up to get the same esthetics over and over again.”
“By outsourcing to AvaDent, most of the human element is taken out of the in-house day-to-day case production. Instead, the denture is produced offsite at a controlled manufacturing facility that operates utilizing the latest technology in order to produce a premium consistent result.”
“I can treat more patients in a shorter time. So I’m able to do more.”
“By outsourcing production I’m able to maintain overhead expenses that are proportionate to the volume of cases outsourced.”
“AvaDent provides many solutions to my practice. So almost every patient can have the benefits of a digital denture.”
“I don’t have much time and the free time. I’d rather do other things than going to the dentist.”
“I don’t have to worry any more about breaking my denture, I always got a identical spare denture.”
“It’s ideal that I don’t need to come that often. It’s always a struggle to get there.”
