Erkoform 3d+ Thermoforming

Family & Cosmetic Dentistry in Elk Grove Village IL

Continuing to learn and advance with dental technologies is one of the reasons our team feels proud to work at our office and why our patients feel confident in their smiles. An example of one of our state-of-the-art dental devices is the Erkoform 3d+ thermoforming unit.

What is 3d+ Thermoforming?

3d+ Dental Thermoforming is used in our dental lab to imprint and fabricate dental applications like sports mouth guards, bleach trays, and other orthodontic appliances.

Thermoforming is a quick and accurate technology for all our dental imprinting needs. So, when you need a new mouth guard or other dental appliance you can trust it will be delivered quickly and with high quality.

How does it Work?

Older dental equipment exclusively used a vacuum method to operate, but the new Erkoform 3d+ Thermoforming technology uses a touchless temperature control, pre-vacuum method. It employs a quick infrared heating element which allows for a closer adaption of the material to the model. Essentially, the imprint or mold is made from heat and compressed air for a perfect fit.

Our staff has been trained on how to create a variety of appliances using the Erkoform device. Because it is used for a wide variety of dental applications, the process can vary from one application to the other.

What are the Advantages?

As mentioned above, the Erkoform 3d+ thermoforming technology creates more accurate impressions via its quick infrared heating element. In addition, 3d+ thermoforming offers a space below the solid platform to allow for taller models and bigger impressions. The technology allows for a quick result—providing the patient with less time in our chair.

Our Clients

Most caring dental staff I’ve ever encountered. Every experience has been extremely professional, from just calling to ask a question to cleanings for my whole family and beyond.

Dr. Homann goes out of his way to make sure you understand each step of the process and are comfortable the whole way. Each member of their team genuinely cares about their patients, and knowing I will have the best care every time I walk in the door makes going to the dentist a whole lot easier. Thank you to all the kind and wonderful staff, you make all the difference.

Dr. Homan is the best dentist I've ever been to. Most of my co-workers go to Dr. Homan and that's how I heard about him.

I needed a lot of work on my teeth and I'm so glad I found such a great dentist. He explains everything to you and also is very upfront on all posibiltys that's can happen to the tooth he works on and also explains what you can expect after the dental work. He's also very friendly and everyone at the office makes you feel comfortable. Karen and Sandra in the front office are wonderful as well. They also have wonderful dental hygienist. My insurance is not in network with Dr. Homan but it's well worth the extra money to still go to the best!

Dr. Homann's practice is very clean and up to date. His practice also has televisions to watch when you are getting your teeth cleaned or any other work done which is awesome!

The chairs are very comfortable and the staff is very polite. Dr. Homann is also a very knowledgeable dentist with the ability to make every patient feel calm and comfortable no matter what the situation. He also has done volunteer work for the homeless donating his time and resources to help the less fortunate, if that doesn't let you know what kind of practice this is I don't know what will. I will definitely be coming back here again!
