Invention captures the World

Dr. Walser Dental recently presented its new invention at the world’s largest dental trade fair.

Already years ago, dentists had asked the managing director of Dr. Walser Dental, Gerhard R. Daiger, to develop a dental product that would allow dentists to fill four surfaces of a tooth. So, in recent years, Daiger has come up with some solutions, but none was really useful and feasible. Weeks ago, he finally came up with the brilliant idea.

And so, in many time-consuming experiments and tests, Gerhard Daiger developed a dental matrix (a kind of formwork around the tooth) for 4-surface fillings, which automatically adapts to the tooth. At the same time, he contacted patent attorneys to register and protect the trademark worldwide.

Even before the initial results of selected dentists who were to test the new product, he recently went with his company Dr. Walser Dental and his team as an exhibitor at the world's largest dental fair and had a huge success. Out of 2,327 exhibiting companies with hundreds of thousands of exhibited products and trade visitors from 166 countries, Daiger's new invention was voted into the "Highlights". So the rush was great during an interview with a camera crew. Especially when his team presented the prototype and then got as many orders from around the world. "I did not expect so much success because the experience from the past showed that new products take time to be accepted," says Gerhard Daiger.
