enigmalife+ S Posteriors designed by Professor Rudolph Slavicek

Created by the world leading gnathological expert, Professor Rudolph Slavicek, they reproduce the form and function of natural teeth. The 30 degree cuspal inclination of the upper first molar accords with his detailed research on the natural dentition.

They are designed not only for full dentures but also for implant stabilised and partial dentures where their fuller form enables them to be easily adapted both to the underlying implant structures and to the remaining dentition. enigmalife+ S posteriors look so real because they are modelled on nature’s own creations, honed by millennia of evolutionary development. Truly inspired by nature and designed for living.

While Professor Slavicek recommends that teeth be set up in lingualised occlusion because this occlusal scheme directs the forces towards the remaining bone, enigmalife+ can also be set up in balanced occlusion or cross-bite. Whatever the occlusal arrangement they have amazing function, with only minimal, if any, adjustments needed and with contact being maintained across protrusive and side shift movements.

The palatal stamp cusps of the uppers have precise natural relationships with the corresponding fossa and marginal ridges of the lowers. This relationship enables the dentures to have maximum stability when the patient bites together and improves their comfort. Denture set up is made more positive and the requirement for clinical adjustments is reduced. A typical mould is shown below.

enigmalife+ P posteriors

enigmalife+ P posterior have been designed for dentures where increased tongue space is required. Lower teeth are flatter but upper teeth have 23 degree cuspal angles to aid mastication. Whether being set up in balanced or lingualised occlusion this range interdigitates easily. Side shift and protrusive movements are free of interferences with only minimal case specific adjustments required.

All moulds in the range have longer premolars so that a natural visual transition from the adjacent canines can be achieved. Their natural morphological form, details on the buccal surfaces and vital colour layering gives them life and outstanding vitality.

With five mould sizes from the petite P1 to the extra large P6, a choice can be made for every clinical situation. Examples of typical moulds within the range are shown below.


Anterior teeth also available in pairs

enigmalife+ anteriors are also available in pairs for improved aesthetics. In the natural dentition, canine teeth often appear darker than, or of a different shade to, neighbouring incisors and premolars. To reproduce this using other brands often requires buying two sets and wasting one of them. With enigmalife+ teeth you can order exactly what you need from the wide range available.
