Dental Laboratory | FDA 510k Consultants – Safelink Consulting

How do you really know where your business stands in regard to FDA compliance?

Are you a manufacturer of dental devices? Is your dental lab current with the latest 510(k) news? A 510(k) is the section of the Food Drug and Cosmetic Act that requires product developers to notify FDA of their intent to market a device. Changes in technology used to manufacture a device or a change in the intended use of the medical device can also require submission of a 510(k) premarket notification to FDA. Class I, II or III medical devices that do not require Premarket Approval can be placed on the market, but they must be cleared by the FDA prior to marketing and distribution.Manufacturers or dental laboratories intending to manufacture dental devices may only use materials and components that are compliant with FDA regulations and must verify existence of a 510(k) for patient contact materials that require a 510(k) clearance. Examples of devices that require this clearance are:
  • Porcelain
  • Ingots
  • Zirconia
  • Acrylic
  • Denture teeth
  • Sleep apnea appliances
  • Implant abutments (both stock and custom)
  • Other Class II devices
You may be exempt from needing an FDA 510(k) if your dental lab does not plan to manufacture these devices in-house. Having an up-to-date 510(k) intact is only required for manufacturers that produce dental devices. An example would be the manufacture in-house of milled custom implant abutments by a dental laboratory. There are several business models available to dental laboratories who provide custom implant abutments to their dental clients.At SafeLink Consulting, we will assist you to determine if your business model meets this requirement. If not, our compliance services go above and beyond just the 510(k) submission process. We have been serving the dental lab industry for over 20 years. SafeLink’s FDA compliance consultants will consult with your business and your team members throughout each compliance order.
