Improving the quality of restorations is a daily goal for every dental lab and eliminating inaccuracies is the main way to achieve higher levels of quality. The Langner Jet Pin System solves many restoration inaccuracies using advanced technologies. (This system was developed in Germany by Jan Langner and originally introduced to the U.S. market by Crocus Dental Technologies – now Renstrom Dental Studio.) Incorporating this pinning system in the model room can ultimately improve the overall fit and function of a labs crown & bridge work.
Some benefits of using the Jet Pin System include:
Jet Pins do not have to be glued, and can be removed from the tooth arch if needed
Block Pins guarantee excellent fit and avoid all unessential movements
Uniform soft friction over the complete length of the pin
The stability of the die in the working model greatly influences quality. If the die doesn’t seat in the model in exactly the same position every time, inaccuracies occur in the proximal contacts and even in the occlusion. The outstanding characteristic of the system is its increased number of pins as compared to traditional die pin systems – more pins mean more die stability, and more stability means more accuracy!
Each die is stabilized by four pins – one each on the lingual, buccal, mesial, and distal. The two additional interproximal pins ensure a secure fit and prevent any lateral movement of the die. A state-of-the-art dental laser-guided pin drilling system and computerized powder/water ratio control for die stone help this process.
With the Langner Jet Pinning system, a dental lab is able to provide a level of quality in dental restorations that is clearly superior. This unique pinning system allows technicians to fabricate and fit crowns on a stable, more accurate die and model, ensuring consistent and predictable results.
