Denver Post: 'Denver-based Sapphire Technology gets funding for gemstone-tipped dental instruments'

Wednesday, October 08, 2014
Quoting from yesterday's posting by Laura Keeney:

"Your dental visit may soon have a lot more bling.

Denver-based Sapphire Technology LLC on Tuesday was awarded $200,000 from the Colorado Institute for Drug, Device and Diagnostic Development, or CID4, for continued development of its dental instruments made with sapphires.

Sapphire, which is a gemstone variety of corundum, ranks at the top of the Mohs scale of mineral hardness — the universal standard to measure the hardness of gemstones and minerals.

The gemstone has been in the news recently amid speculation that Apple might use highly scratch-resistant glass made of sapphires for its new iPhone screens.

But what does this have to do with dental work?"
