67.1% of Australian patients put off or avoid going to the dentist, 45.4% due to the high cost of dental care*.
This is a very real concern, affecting overall patient dental health on a large scale, with prevalence amongst the 25-39 age group. As dentists, we want the best possible clinical outcome for our patients, and it is frustrating when hopeless cases present themselves that could have been prevented through timely treatment. Addressing the high cost of traditional crowns has been the driving force behind why we at Rhondium decided to develop the One Visit Crown (OVC3).
The OVC3 provides a quality, affordable alternative to a lab crown, a large composite filling or a tooth extraction – without the need for a CAD/CAM system.
This revolutionary new technology has been on the market for over 5 years and is now offered in over 450+ practices across New Zealand and Australia. An in-practice evaluation conducted by Dr Tom Stone over a 5-year period demonstrates a 95% success rate with the OVC3, with failures mainly relating to “herodontics” type restorations.
