Roland Announces Release of new Digital Dentistry White Paper Comparing e.max Restoration Processess

New Roland DWX Digital Dental Prosthesis Production Tech Brief also available

Irvine, Calif., Sept. 25, 2014 - Roland DGA has announced the release of its new digital dentistry white paper, "e.max Press vs. e.max CAD - A Comparison." The informative document, complete with detailed charts and images, includes in-depth comparative analysis of the e.max Press and e.max CAD restoration processes, providing expert insight and clinical data to help labs choose the best production method, materials and equipment for this popular application. Lithium disilicate is one of the most prescribed materials for dental restorations. IPS e.max by Ivoclar is a common type of lithium disilicate and many dental lab technicians believe that wet grinding this material is the best way to produce e.max restorations.

Roland's white paper, which can be downloaded for free at, explains why wet milling is not the only production platform well suited for performing e.max dental restorations and why labs should consider milling wax and pressing e.max for greater versatility, increased precision, simplified workflow and lower operational costs.

In addition to the white paper on e.max restoration, Roland has published a new, informative technology brief, "Advantages of Roland DWX Digital Dental Prosthesis Production." The tech brief includes an overview of digital dental milling, detailed information on the benefits of Roland's revolutionary DWX-50 and DWX-4 series mills, analysis of the ROI that labs can expect to achieve using these advanced devices, customer testimonials, and more.

"Roland is committed not only to developing innovative products that are helping to usher in a new era of digital dentistry, but also to providing useful data and that helps labs make better-informed purchasing decisions," said Brian Brooks, Roland DGA's dental solutions product manager.
