Victorian company, Osteon Medical and Kyocera have announced a collaborative partnership to bring digital solutions to the Japanese dental implant market.

“Our company's strategic collaboration with Kyocera has enabled us to bring advanced digital solutions to the dental implant market in Japan. We look forward to delivering our products and solutions from our dedicated, state-of-the-art manufacturing facility located in Osaka to dentists and dental technicians across Japan." Michael Tuckman, CEO of Osteon Medical.

President of the Kyocera Corporation, Hideo Tanimoto announced on Wednesday 18 August it has entered into a business partnership with Osteon Digital Japan, the Japanese branch of Victorian company Osteon Medical, for continuous sales transactions, beginning this September with the sales of customised dental prosthesis for implants utilising Osteon Medical’s digital technology.

Kyocera introduced the first dental implant in Japan in 1978, and has expanded its business into implant systems. FINESIA® was developed based on the results of industry-university joint research to stably function in the oral cavity of patients over the long term, and has many users, mainly in Japan.

"We are pleased to supply our company's products and solutions that are popular overseas. We will do our best for continuous business for a long time." Yusuke Yamashiro, General Manager of Osteon Digital Japan

Osteon Medical has developed high-precision CAD/CAM implant prosthesis technology using digital solutions over the last decade, providing customised dental prosthesis in the local Australian market and overseas. And in recent years the company has advanced development of IO scanning technologies with first-to-market digital workflows.

This collaboration will enable all Japanese dental professionals access to Osteon’s innovative dental technology, which aims to meet the needs of dentists and dental laboratories, currently unable to be fulfilled by conventional technology.
