6 exhibitors CDA Presents — September 8, 2018 PhD scientist explains the many advantages of polymer RPDs Special CDA offer: Two Ultaire AKP partials for the price of one By Solvay Dental 360 Staff n When Solvay Dental 360™ set out to develop a new material .or remov- able partial dentures (RPDs), the goal was to create a high-per.ormance polymer to fill the gap between the metal and flexible .rames currently on the market. Ryan Murphy, PhD, a polymer scientist .or Solvay, says, “Metals are way too rigid, and flexibles are entirely too flimsy.” With this in mind, Solvay drew .rom its 25-year history as metal- replacing experts in the healthcare industry to produce Ultaire™ AKP. This innovative aryl ketone poly- mer (AKP) is .ormulated to meet critical per.ormance requirements .or RPDs. Metal-free, lightweight, comfortable “We saw an opportunity based on a lot o. the undesirable traits and potential poor health consequences o. metal RPDs,” Murphy says. “Ultaire AKP is metal-.ree, it’s lightweight, it’s com- .ortable .or patients. It’s biocompat- ible, and it’s tooth-supported. It’s very bone-like in its properties.” With Ultaire AKP, dentists can o..er patients a premium alternative to metal and flexible RPDs. “Ultaire AKP sits right in between, designed specifically to enhance the rigidity o. the polymer to be supportive and to have a very long li.etime. But also, to have some flexibility and elasticity to be able to improve the patient com- .ort and overall experience,” Murphy says. Ultaire AKP, a high-per.ormance polymer, o..ers these .eatures: • Strong enough to be tooth sup- ported • May help minimize bone loss • Minimal fitting sessions and adjustments • High patient satis.action • May improve patient compliance Ready to prescribe?
