Arlington dental associate Daniel Cervantes and Alpha Dental, the largest dental supply company in the United States, have teamed up to create the first prosthetic for children with facial deformities.
“We are very excited about the potential of this new technology,” Cervants said in a statement.
“This is a revolutionary advancement in prosthetic design, technology, and technology support, and we look forward to working with Alpha Dentals on this exciting new technology.”
Alpha Dents newest prosthetic, the Alpha Dens Face, uses 3D printers to create a prosthetic eye that will be worn by children and adults who suffer from microcephaly, a condition that results from the damage to the developing brain of an unborn baby.
“The Alpha Dons new facial prosthesis will be the first of its kind for children and families who have had microcephi,” Cervelli said.
“These kids are often unable to learn to speak, read, or use other skills because of their condition, and the Alpha dents new prosthesis is designed to help them learn.”
Alpha dental is also developing a more durable, flexible, and durable prosthetic.
The company said it is working with OrthoVision, a company that specializes in prosthetics for kids with facial conditions, to develop a flexible, durable, and protective prosthetic that can be used by adults as well.
The new prosthetic will be made from a durable, durable polymer, and it will be able to be worn without discomfort, and in a variety of configurations.
“Our goal is to deliver the most innovative and affordable prosthetic on the market for children today, which will allow children to enjoy their most basic needs while simultaneously being able to enjoy a career and a life,” Covilas said.
The Alpha Dented prosthetic uses a 3D printer to create facial implants that can fit children and their families.
“With Alpha dentistry, we’re excited to be partnering with Alpha dentists to develop the first and only prosthetic prosthetic,” Cevilas continued.
“It will allow us to continue our relationship with Alpha, as well as the children who rely on us.”
