The potential for RAYO 3DToothFill (Pat. Pend.) to improve the quality of people’s lives is immense. Untreated caries in permanent teeth is the most prevalent condition affecting 2,5 billion people worldwide.*
“New (bio) materials and production techniques including 3D printing, thin film techniques and composite materials open up possibilities for new ideas.”

In addition, approximately 8 out of 10 regular users of dental services need repetitive repair or replacement of old restorations within five years** This is a critical problem placing a heavy burden on dental health services and patients.
The instantly fitting and uniquely durable RAYO 3DToothFill (Pat. Pend.) is in practice ‘a tooth filling for life’. It dramatically reduces the requirement to repair old restorations. As result, dental treatment of more patients will be enabled. The cost-efficiency of the new technique will make premium quality dental care more widely accessible to new groups of customers.
The technique provides also new affordable solutions for the demanding rehabilitation of occlusion and aesthetic dental care.
