Meet Rex Duncan

meet the team rexRex started in the dental laboratory industry in 1973. While attending Wichita State University, he worked at a local lab in the removable department. There he became diverse in the process of fabricating Dentures and Removable Partial Dentures.

Continuing studies and working as a denture technician, he became a certified dental technician in 1980. Rex became interested in the area of implantology and how it would soon affect the industry.

In 1980, he attended his first in-depth implant course at UCLA (the UCLA abutment design). In 1982, Rex also attended courses by Gerald Niznick who was developing the CORE-VENT System.

Through the years, he has continued to make his way in the ever-changing field of implants. He has most currently presented at UMKC on the indirect technique, All-on-4 concept for Nobel Biocare. He has been involved with numerous study clubs and has written articles for Spectrum and Dental Lab Products.

Rex started Aesthetic Aim Dental Lab in 1991. With his wife of 40 years, Mary Jane, they have created a well-respected and successful operation. They have three grown children. Carrie Ulrich, their daughter, manages the day-to-day operations, their son-in law Phil Ulrich acts as the Business Development Manager.

The exact dimensions, tolerances, and materials of implants and their corresponding prosthetic components are different for each manufacturer. Third party manufacturers do not have access to these precise design and engineering specifications, and cannot optimally recreate these harmonized connections.

Why Original Components Are Important
Many studies have shown that using compatible components that are not authentic could lead to problems such as screw loosening, micro-movement, micro-gaps, and bacterial contamination. This could ultimately result in bone loss, abutment failure, or implant failure.

How Aesthetic Aim Dental Lab Can Help
Using authentic components for each system has been shown to result in higher removal torque values after cyclic loading, reflecting the smallest effect of screw loosening versus non-original components. It is also proven that using authentic components results in the smallest rotational misfit versus using third party components.

Digital Impression Files

accepting digital files ergonomicWe understand how important it can be to leverage your investments in chairside digital impression systems by partnering with a lab that can streamline your workflow in a way that makes sense. That is why we accept many different types of impression files, including Trios, iTeros, 3M.

We are able to receive the digital impression files from your scanner and use them to build almost any restoration you desire. Using these files, we are able to produce restorations with a brilliant fit and pinpoint accuracy.

Digital Impression Files: 3M

3D-in-motion video technology generates a true replica of the oral anatomy with extraordinary detail. It captures 3D data in a video sequence and models the data in real time. The 3M™ True Definition Scanner can capture approximately 20 3D data sets per second—or close to 2,400 data sets per arch—for a high-speed, high-accuracy scan. This enables the user to scan images while moving the wand—and simultaneously view and control the scan on the touchscreen. In contrast, the traditional scanning method, which uses point-and-click technology, requires the wand to be first positioned and then held steady, at which point the user can initiate a single capture or the system automatically initiates the scan.

•  accepting digital files accuracyAccuracy: The 3M™ True Definition Scanner is proven to be the most accurate and most consistently accurate than other leading intraoral scanners. See below for results from the latest full arch accuracy study by the Academic Center of Dentistry Amsterdam:

•  itero scan fileErgonomic: The True Definition wand is the most compact hand piece on the market and makes maneuvering inside the oral cavity easier and a more comfortable experience for the patient.

•  Durable: The True Definition scanner contains no moving-parts within the wand and does not require field calibration. The wand is also resistant to bumps and drops.

•  Support: The purchase of a True Definition Scanner includes 1 full day of on-site training as well as unlimited phone/email support from the Clinical Training and Technical Services team in St. Paul, MN. Software upgrades are updated automatically and unlimited case archiving on 3M’s cloud server is included as well.

Does the 3M scanner require the use of powder?
The 3M True Definition requires just a light dusting over the area to be scanned which enhances accuracy and speed of capture. The powder application adds less than 10 seconds to the procedure.
