Why you should try PCD dental milling tools


As part of the fabrication of dentures it is a common practice to bind yourself with one manufacturer for the Cad/Cam machine and get both the Dental blanks and the Dental Burs in one package, this package is supplied by the manufacturer and can be adequate.

However, in these packages hides a large loss for the dental lab, bringing both the price up and provides redundant elements that may not be needed as part of the package. Many dental labs are reluctant to move from the manufacturer options even if it is an inferior product to the existing options in the market.

Getting the Right Dental tool for the job

Dental milling tools are a great example for this, while the manufacturers mostly sell regular milling tools from solid carbide, in the market exist a vastly superior option: Telcon PCD Dental  tools with much longer lifespan and the ability to keep the cutting edge for much longer periods and under heavy workload, reducing in inaccuracy caused by wear of the cutting edge by a large margin.

Using Telcon patented alternative tools in the Cad/Cam milling machine will get you up to X8 savings per crown compared to existing milling tools provided by the machine manufacturer, and that just in direct tooling costs, the number can radically increase when considering setup time and inaccuracy ratio.

Why Dental labs don’t change the dental burs they use today?

In many cases Labs are reluctant to swap the machine manufacturer as the milling tools supplier, this is caused due to two things:

  • Simplicity: it’s close to home, it’s easy and you already know the supplier…
  • Fear factor: will it annal my warranty? Will the new product fit in the machine?

It’s very easy to see why the Labs are reluctant to swap suppliers, however it’s also very easy to see why the swap is very lucrative! By saving the inherent costs in the process the lab can have more bang for the buck and save thousands of dollars each year.

Why use Telcon dental milling tools?

Telcon dental milling tools are the cream of the crop, the Patented unique tools provide up to X15 more crowns per tool then existing tungsten carbide tools. The tools are very durable and allow high speed processing of many crowns without losing the cutting edge or harming the crown accuracy. In addition, telcon tools are adapted to fit the chucks of Sirona, Amann Girrbach and Zirkonzahn Cad/Cam milling machine.

Telcon tools have a long history of success and performance in very demanding industries such as aerospace industry, Telcon has decided to use this expertise in the Dental milling tools industry to create a vastly superior product that can out preform the existing products in the market by a large margin.
