Ever hear of a Crozat appliance? We haven't either, but luckily this week we talk to one of the only four technicians that makes these palate expanding devices, Jay Work III. Jay tells the amazing story of stumbling upon a gentleman specializing in these wire devices and after some persistent bugging agreed to teach him. Jay explains what a Crozat is, what it does, and why they are so hard to make. It's a fascinating conversation about a little known appliance that hardly anyone makes but is in high demand.

Did you know that not all Zirconia is the same?

ZirCAD Prime Zirconia from Ivoclar is uniquely produced with Gradient Technology which allows two powders that normally sinter at different intervals, to be combined into one material which sinters uniformly. The manufacturing process not only optimizes the translucent properties but also creates a seamless progression of shade while maintaining optimal strength.

ZirCAD prime is now more affordable than ever and will give you results that your Dentists will notice! Contact your local Ivoclar Sales representative today to find out more about Prime and how Ivoclar can support your success!
