dental lab equipment list for technician

high standard dental lab setup

The new setup lab maybe use the followings dental lab equipment list and the reference of prices details from leading dental laboratory equipment suppliers.

  • Dental casting equipment 

High frequency casting machine:It is a commonly used technical equipment in the dental prosthetics department. It is used for the melting and casting of various dental high-melting alloys, such as cobalt-chromium and nickel-chromium alloys, to obtain various casts such as denture brackets, inlays, crowns and bridges. High-frequency centrifugal casting machines can be divided into two types: air-cooled and water-cooled according to their cooling methods.

Vacuum casting dental machine:It is a new type of casting machine, which is controlled by a microcomputer, which can automatically or manually complete the melting and casting of various dental alloys, avoiding the oxidation and segregation of alloy components, and making the performance of castings stable. At the same time, it has the characteristics of high degree of automation, small size and easy operation.

Titanium casting machine: Dental casting machines are divided into high-frequency centrifugation, medium-frequency centrifugation, vacuum pressure, and titanium casting machines. The general dental laboratory needs more than one type of casting machine, choose them appropriately and match them according to your needs. A set of casting dental lab equipment products is estimated to cost about 50,000 usd.The main manufacturers are Italy Manfei, Germany’s KaVo, American Dentsply, Germany’s Heraeus Kusa etc brand.

  • Dental porcelain furnace

It is one of the special dental lab equipment for dental restoration, mainly used for grilling dental porcelain. Vacuum porcelain dental furnace refers to a porcelain furnace with vacuum function. Commonly used porcelain ovens for oral cavity have the following characteristics:

1 The melting points of commonly used porcelain in clinical practice are 1090~1260℃ (medium temperature porcelain) and 871~1066℃ (low temperature porcelain);

2 Since porcelain is not easy to transfer heat, if it is heated too fast during baking, the porcelain body is prone to cracks; after the baking is completed, if the porcelain body is cooled too fast, the porcelain body is also prone to cracks;

3 Porcelain powder contains a certain amount of water. During the baking process, the porcelain body has a certain degree of shrinkage and can emit carbon dioxide gas;

4 Porcelain can produce air bubbles when it is melted, which will cause voids in the porcelain body after baking. In order to cover the micropores on the surface of the porcelain body and make the porcelain surface smooth, glaze must be applied to the porcelain surface.

There are two glazing methods generally used in clinical practice, namely, self-glazing (holding the fired porcelain body at a temperature of 10-20℃ higher than the melting temperature of the body porcelain for several minutes) and separate glazing (which will be coated with low-temperature glaze The powdered porcelain body is heated to 871°C to melt it to form a surface glaze layer).

In view of the above characteristics, in order to achieve a satisfactory porcelain effect, the vacuum porcelain furnace is required to have the following functions:

1 The maximum temperature of the porcelain furnace should be able to reach the temperature of medium-temperature porcelain, the porcelain should have temperature control equipment, and there should be an observation window for each parameter in the baking process;

2 Porcelain furnace should have vacuum function and control the vacuum degree to improve the quality of porcelain.

Porcelain tooth is the most commonly used method in oral beauty, and the porcelain furnace is the main equipment for manufacturing porcelain teeth. So the choice of porcelain stove is very important. The price of branded porcelain dental furnace ranges from 8,000 to 16,000 usd, mainly including Japan’s Morita, Germany’s Kava, Sirona, American Dentsply, and Italy’s Manfi.
