The announcement is made by Kevin M. Smith, CID4 President & CEO, who says,“Sapphire Technology is a development-stage dental device company, advancing its proprietary sapphire-tipped instruments for use in dental procedures involving photo-cured resin composite filling and restoration materials.”

As part of CID4’s management support, Jonathan Thorne, a member of the CID4 Board for the past two years, will join Sapphire Technology’s Founder Alan Wong, DDS, and CEO H. Steven Rosen on the Company’s Board of Managers.

“We are extremely excited about our investment and involvement in Sapphire Technology,” Smith said. “Not only will Sapphire Technology’s proprietary devices address a recognized problem in the dental instrument market as the movement toward composite filling and restoration materials continues to grow, but Sapphire Technology’s use of Colorado-based contract manufacturers should contribute significantly to the advancement of the State’s life science industry.”

Unlike current dental filling instruments, which typically utilize metal for their tips, Sapphire Technology’s SGS® instrument line will employ highly polished and optically clear sapphire tips instead. The use of sapphire is intended to significantly reduce composite pullback as experienced with current metal instruments, which in turn is expected to provide a reduction of voids in the composite material and improve the bond between the filling material and the patient’s natural tooth. Voids and poor bonds in dental fillings can trap bacteria, provide opportunity for further tooth decay, and provide micro-leakage pathways for post-filling hot and cold sensitivity issues.

“We are very pleased that such a high quality investor as CID4 has shown confidence in our future prospects. The money and resources provided by CID4 will enable us to move into commercial distribution with our initial line of the SGS® dental instruments,” Dr. Wong said.

Further, Sapphire Technology’s CEO Rosen said: “Beyond CID4’s financial resources, we are already benefitting from the guidance provided by Jonathan Thorne. His years of entrepreneurial experience developing healthcare devices will greatly enhance our ability to grow Sapphire into a significant presence in the Colorado Med Tech sector.”
