Transforming Dental Restorations: Introducing Simq VIT Dental Workflow for Digital Verification


 Digital Verification for dental implants and more simq vit

Digital verification and compliance with dental workflow regulatory standards is paramount in a rapidly evolving dental technology landscape.

Introducing new regulations for custom-made devices in the EU and the US has reshaped the industry, making it essential for dental professionals to stay ahead of the curve.

This blog introduces the revolutionizing Simq VIT Dental Workflow, designed to virtually test dental restorations and support documentation according to EU MDR, MDCG Q&A 2021-03 and FDA`s Leap Frog Guidance on additive manufacturing.

EU MDR Requirements:

The European Union Medical Device Regulation (MDR) places stringent requirements on medical device manufacturers to ensure the safety and performance of their products.

Some key aspects include:

  1. Classification: Medical devices are classified into different classes based on their intended use and potential risks. Higher-risk devices are subject to more rigorous conformity assessment procedures.
  2. Technical Documentation: Manufacturers must create and maintain comprehensive technical documentation demonstrating MDR compliance. This includes design, manufacturing, clinical evaluation, and risk management information.
  3. Post-Market Surveillance (PMS): Continuous monitoring of devices on the market is required. Manufacturers must collect and analyze data on the performance and safety of their devices and take appropriate corrective actions if issues arise.
  4. Unique Device Identification (UDI): Devices must bear a UDI, facilitating traceability and post-market surveillance.
  5. Notified Bodies: Many devices require the involvement of a Notified Body, an independent third-party organization that assesses the conformity of the device with the MDR.

FDA’s “Leap Frog” Guidance on Additive Manufacturing:

As of my last update, the FDA had been working on guiding additive manufacturing (3D printing) of medical devices.

The “Leap Frog” guidance emphasizes technological advancements and innovative approaches to facilitate the development of safe and effective 3D-printed medical products.

Some general points may include:

  1. Material Characterization: Comprehensive understanding and characterization of the materials used in 3D printing, including considerations for variability in the printing process.
  2. Quality Systems: Adherence to established quality systems to ensure consistency and reliability in the manufacturing process.
  3. Biocompatibility: Rigorous testing to demonstrate the biocompatibility of the 3D-printed materials, particularly when the devices come into contact with the patient’s body.
  4. Post-Processing: Considerations for post-processing steps and their impact on the final product’s performance and safety.
  5. Design and Manufacturing Controls: Robust design controls and manufacturing processes to ensure the reproducibility and consistency of 3D-printed medical devices.

It’s crucial to refer to the regulatory bodies’ specific guidance documents and updates for the most accurate and current information.

Regulatory and legal requirements are subject to change, and staying informed about the latest guidelines is essential for compliance.

What is Simq VIT Dental Workflow?

Simq VIT Dental Workflow is a comprehensive solution tailored to address the challenges posed by new regulations.

Our software is designed to make the digital verification of patient-specific implants (PSIs) easy and cybersecure. Our software allows you to design better PSIs in less time by virtually applying physiological or standardized loads to a patient-specific situation.

This helps to reduce liability by providing objective criteria to the clinician and designer team during the decision-making process. To ensure implant safety and efficacy, you can set up highly complex biomechanical simulations within minutes.

Our software also helps you meet new regulatory requirements through virtual testing and automated report generation following FDA guidelines. Our simulation business models have been verified and validated by academia and industry leaders.

It empowers dental professionals to verify the mechanical strength and performance of both the traditional dental bridge, and implant-supported dental bridges themselves.
