We support the best of the best.

Since 1999, KunstZahnWerk is the competition in the world of dentistry - with a focus on prosthetics. Dental technicians, dental master technicians and prosthodontists as well as trainees use this platform nationally and internationally to demonstrate their skills. The competition is to act as an inspiration, demonstrating what can be done for patients.

 

The tender

KUNSTZAHNWERK Competition 2019 – Compete with the best of the best from around the world and become part of the CANDULOR KZW community.

Are full dentures your specialty? Or would you prefer to tackle the fine art of removable dentures again? This competition gives you the opportunity, be it as a team or alone, to showcase perfection from a master's hand. 

The partnership

In cooperation with CAMLOG - a leading supplier of complete systems and products for implant dentistry and implant-supported dentures - CANDULOR provides you with an exciting patient case. Realism par excellence: with our PhysioStar NFC+ tooth line and the CAMLOG implant components, you can create a valuable showcase for yourself and try out what is possible.

The task

For participants, the task is to prepare a total reconstruction with a full maxillary denture supported on the mucous membrane and a partially removable mandibular restoration with four CAMLOG implants. All work must be prepared using the Gerber setup method. 

The procedure

After the binding registration, CANDULOR will send the detailed information on the complete patient case, which will make the solution easier, as well as the plaster casts and all other materials. The finished prosthetics must be submitted exclusively in the CANDULOR articulator or Condylator.

Additional opportunity

You can photograph, film and/or write. The KZW documentations are an important centerpiece of the competition and will also receive awards. In other words; it pays to document your work. The best documentations will be published in various professional journals.
