Heidelberg/Germany, November 11, 2020 – The American dental group Young Innovations has acquired the leading British dental manufacturer Astek and is now taking over the distribution of the product range. The medical portfolio of Astek Innovations includes well-known brands such as Pro-Matrix®, Pro-Tip®, Transform, Pegasus, inSafe, and Alma Prosthetic Instruments.

Currently, the hygienic disposable products from Astek are in particular demand because they help to control infection risks. For example, the ready to use disposable matrix system Pro-Matrix®, which does not require any tedious assembly and thus prevents injuries. The Pro-Matrix Curve range has a longer band for larger teeth and is precontoured to the tooth shape.

Effective infection control is also provided by the Pro-Tip® Turbo disposable tips for air/water syringes. The clean separation of air and water in two chambers and single use significantly reduce the risk of cross-contamination. Another major health risk are needlestick injuries. The inSafe system ensures effective protection from the preparation of the syringe to the disposal of the used needle. More information in this video:

Another ground-breaking innovation is the thermoplastically mouldable impression tray Transform, made of biodegradable material. It was developed for prosthetic, orthodontic and implant procedures. It can be anatomically shaped and individually fitted within seconds.

Young Innovations has acquired a double-digit number of dental companies over the last four years and successfully integrated them into the group. Further acquisitions in the core segment are planned for the future. At the same time, the impressive growth is also being accelerated by the continuous expansion of sales, particularly in Europe and North America.
