"We Build Advanced Occlusal Concepts
Into Everything We Do!"
We've Grown into an O.I.C. Laboratory
At Klausz Dental Laboratories, we are committed to providing our clients with a full range of services, restorations, and appliances to meet all aspects of clinical dentistry. To meet your expectations we have grown into an Occlusal-Implant-Cosmetic (O.I.C.) Laboratory.

With over 45 years of experience in the dental technology field, we build advanced occlusal concepts into every restoration and appliance we custom fabricate. With a greater understanding of how teeth, muscles and joints work together, we can create restorations that not only look lifelike and aesthetic, but can last longer and function better. Allow us to apply the knowledge we’ve accumulated into your next restoration or appliance.

We hope our e-Newsletters prove to be informative, educational, and beneficial. Each issue will cover different topics on materials, techniques, services and educational opportunities.
Please do not hesitate to contact us with specific questions. We look forward to working with you.

The Novaloc Matrix System, with its newly developed technology, is a ready-made connective element to affix removable dentures to Locator Abutment
PEEK Material Snap Fit - retention and strength in demanding situations

The snap fit connection of the Novaloc Matrix to the Locator Abutment is based on the locking mechanism of the retention inserts. These four, colour coded inserts span the functional range of the Locator Abutment and are more retentive than traditional male inserts. In particular, thanks to the construction of the retention insert and the use of PEEK as a material, the Novaloc Matrix is also able to cater to situations where several extremely divergent abutment positions exist without wear and tear to the retention inserts.
  • Innovative Swiss Made technology
  • 4 Retentive inserts, logically colour coded according to retention values
  • Retention inserts have a long lifespan and better hygiene
  • Well thought-out, user friendly Novaloc tools
Novaloc Matrix System - Allows for Implant Divergence of 40 degrees

The Novaloc Matrix System offers the possibility of retention of a dental prosthesis for non-parallel implants with angles of up to 20 degrees. This means that divergences between two implants of a maximum of 40 degrees can be corrected. For this purpose, the four color-coded Novaloc retention inserts, classified by retention weight, can be used without the need for angled abutments.
There are a lot of good reasons to choose Novaloc - View the illustrated 1 page guide here

Klausz Dental Lab now offers...

e.max Press - Lithium Disilicate - Aesthetics AND Strength
Comprised of biocompatible lithium disilicate, IPS e.max Press provides the fit, form and function of a pressed ceramic with maximum aesthetic characteristics, and exceptional flexural strength at 400 MPa.

A Variety of Shades and Translucencies
IPS e.max Press ingots are available in varying degrees of translucency for maximum versatility. Ingots come in the High Translucency (HT) created for inlays, onlays and veneers, Low Translucency (LT) which is ideal for creating one-step fully anatomical restorations, Medium Opacity (MO) is intended for devitalized, slightly discolored preparations, and High Opacity (HO) is for preparations that are non-vital and severely discolored. The LT ingots are available in the 9 most popular A-D shades as well as 4 contemporary bleach shades.

Strong Enough for Conventional Cementation
Due to their high strength, the restorations can be conventionally cemented. Alternatively, they can be adhesively bonded. This provides maximum flexibility to address clinical needs.

Full Contour OR Build-up Technique
IPS e.max restorations are available in two forms. You can choose full contour that provides high strength and beautiful aesthetics as an alternative to zirconia and precious metal. For more demanding cases, we can fabricate restorations utilizing the cut-back and build-up technique. Final veneering with IPS e.max Ceram, a proprietary nano-fluorapatite layering ceramic, offers unparalleled aesthetics.

IPS e.max Press provides the ultimate in all ceramic restorations:

  • Outstanding aesthetics combined with high flexural strength
  • Exceptional wear profile on the antagonist tooth, even kinder than natural enamel
  • 5 year clinical data
  • Conventional or adhesive cementation options for clinical flexibility

We are confident that we can provide you with the high quality you have come to expect from our laboratory in this new and versatile all-ceramic restoration.

Klausz Dental Laboratories is Proud to Announce
The Panthera Digital Sleep Apnea Device
Call 1-855-233-0388 or visit www.PantheraDental.com for more information
Panthera is now FDA APPROVED

Panthera Dental announced it has received 510(k) clearance from the U.S Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to market the Panthera Anti-Snoring Device.

This device is a removable intraoral device used for treating snoring and mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea. It consists of two custom fabricated splints that sit separately over the upper and lower teeth and engage by means of adjustable rods. The device functions as a mandibular repositioner, maintaining the lower jaw in a forward position during sleep. This mechanical protrusion acts to increase the patient’s pharyngeal space, improving their ability to exchange air during sleep. The device is a prescription device customized for each patient and has an adjustment mechanism enabling the amount of mandibular advancement to be set by the dentist or physician at the time of fitting the device. The device can be adjusted only by the dentist. The maximum protrusion of the device is 15 mm in 1mm increments.

Jerry Vogel, Executive VP USA of Panthera Dental:
“We are very proud to announce the Panthera Anti-Snoring device to the U.S market. This particular product is one of the smallest most effective and patient-friendly devices in the market today. The potential and the impact of sleep challenges for the dental industry is enormous and will add significant value to dental practices who can now impact so many patients and their families lives in a completely new way”.
