"We Build Advanced Occlusal Concepts
Into Everything We Do!"

We've Grown into an O.I.C.S. Specialty 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-Sleep (O.I.C.S.) Specialty Laboratory.

With 50 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.


We're Celebrating!

Klausz Dental Laboratories has been proudly serving the dental community for half a century!

From our family's humble beginnings of fabricating gold crowns with acrylic facings, to providing some of the most advanced all ceramic restorations, dental orthotics, and sleep apnea appliances, one thing is certain: we’ve grown by always listening to our clients and fulfilling their individual needs.

We would like to thank everyone who has made our journey possible.

We’re proud of our past and we’re looking forward to a bright future.

“I trust Ron and his team at Klausz Dental Lab to constantly deliver precise fitting restorations that provide greater aesthetics and superior function. They stand behind everything they do and they care about my patients as much as I do.

I’m so glad I found them.

Case Study - Dr. Natalie Abbott - LAVA Layered All-Ceramic Crowns
The patient presented with 25 year old central incisor, porcelain fused to gold foil crowns. He wasn’t pleased with the exaggerated incisal length, the shade, the labial bulkiness, and the gingival recession that had occurred over time. To mask the discoloured cores, Lava Layered All-Ceramic Crowns were fabricated after a Cosmetic Consultation was done at Klausz Lab.

Lava All-Ceramic Crown and Bridge Restorations
Zirconia Based All-Ceramic Restorations
Strength and Beauty - Together at Last

For decades, PFM has set the standard for strength, durability and marginal fit. With the Lava All-Ceramic System, these standards have now been enhanced by aesthetics. The Lava All-Ceramic System is an innovative CAD/CAM technology for all-ceramic crowns and bridges on a zirconium oxide base. Lava crowns and bridges are suitable for both anterior and posterior applications.

The aesthetics and biocompatibility of Lava restorations represent the optimum in all-ceramic systems. Preparations require minimal removal of tooth structure, and cementation can be accomplished using proven, conventional techniques.

The frameworks can be tinted to match the shade of the final restoration. As well, the frameworks are thin and translucent which ensures a natural appearance. The Lava All-Ceramic System provides the most durable and aesthetic, high-strength all-ceramic restorations available today.

At Klausz Dental Laboratories, we believe you and your patients deserve the best quality possible.

That’s why we choose to do things differently than other labs.

 

Mounted Splint

 

Not All Occlusal Splints Are Created Equally
Advanced Materials and Techniques: for Biocompatibility, Fit, Resilience, Flexibility & MORE!

Using the most advanced materials, we can ensure the fit, comfort, and longevity of the appliances we custom fabricate. Replacing hard acrylics, which shrink during polymerization and cause poor fit, with Pressure Molded Technology (PMT) materials covered with composite resin, we create appliances that not only fit better, but are also more biocompatible than traditional methylmathacrylates. We can also fabricate appliances from thermoplastic materials, which soften under warm water or in the oral environment. This will help to diffuse the occlusal forces and act as a type of shock absorber. We can fabricate the appliance out of Thermoplastic material or have the thermoplastic material inside the appliance with a hard acrylic occlusal surface. This may help to relieve some of the stress or pressure that patients may experience with hard materials. To satisfy their aesthetic demands, the appliances are available in a variety of colours.

Designed to Enhance Patient Experience

There is nothing standard about today’s “standard flat plane splints”. Their designs can be modified in a great number of ways. These appliances were originally designed as a full coverage appliance with a flat occlusal table, occluding with every tooth in the opposing arch. Now, through correct material selection, the design can be altered to enhance the patient experience. 

Articulated for a More Ideal Occlusion - Means Less Time Chairside

What really sets us apart is how we mount your models. Most labs quickly mount models on standard hinge articulators and guess at the amount of vertical opening. Using this technique usually leads to an appliance in which the occlusion is very heavy in the posterior areas and open in the anterior. This forces the dentist to waste time grinding in the bite, leaving the distal areas thin and compromised.

We choose to do things differently. We mount your models on special articulators that allow us to take into consideration the translation and rotation of the mandible, thus reducing the amount of chair time it takes to calibrate the occlusion of one of our appliances.

You and your patients are worth the added time, skill and effort this takes.

"Not All Occlusal Splints
Are Created Equally"

Article Outline

 “Splint therapy has become one of the most prevalent aspects of dentistry over the last number of years. Patients are presenting with multiple reasons for needing this type of dental intervention.
 
Occlusal splints can be fabricated from a variety of materials depending on the causes and effects of the trauma, the patient’s compliance, the dentist’s preferences, as well as a myriad of other determinants. 

This article focuses on  a variety of designs and materials that traditional flat plane occlusal splint can be made  from, for either the maxillary or mandibular arch.”
