Yet another material the vhf K5+ masters with ease

Posted on November 21, 2019

Keystone Industries’ high-impact Denture Base Disc, KeyMill featuring Diamond D, validated for vhf milling machines

Keystone Industries and vhf announced that they have collaborated to validate and optimize Keystone’s high-impact denture base disc, KeyMill, in the vhf dental milling machines.

Since its introduction in 2003, Diamond D has become one of the world’s leading high-impact denture acrylic. Laboratories and dentists alike have come to rely on Diamond D’s superior strength and natural, fibered colors to deliver a premium, fracture-resistant denture product to patients. Now, Keystone is offering this same superior quality to the digital den- tistry market – KeyMill discs can be perfectly and accurately milled, without any warping of the material during production. The final product is extremely strong, vibrant, and esthetic, with minimal finishing or polishing required. Unlike PMMA dentures, Diamond D dentures are not brittle and resist fractures.

Björn Höppe, Head of Product at vhf says: “The K5+ is a lab’s premiere choice when it comes to milling dentures. The highly esthetic material from Keystone is extremely strong and requires a robust milling system. The K5+, vhf’s powerful dry mill, offers a compact and extremely sturdy build that masters the high impact denture base discs with ease.”

Keystone Industries’ president, Ira Rosenau, noted that, “We are very pleased to have validated our KeyMill denture base disc for vhf’s robust milling machines. Through the harmonized CAM system, consisting of vhf milling machine, strategies and tools, users are able to create an esthetic and high-impact denture product with KeyMill in very little time. We look forward to working with vhf and their lab customers to create excellent results for dentists and their patients looking for a perfect digital denture solution.”

KeyMill is CE marked, Health Canada approved and 510(k) cleared by the FDA. Keystone offers its discs in two shades (original and light-reddish pink) and two sizes (25mm and 30 mm).

vhf is a leading manufacturer of complete milling solutions (machine, control software and tools) for the production of dental products, including dentures. vhf’s K5+ features revolutionary technologies, such as tool-free blank clamping and an integrated ionizer, which help users to achieve top-quality results.

New Podcast Series Reconnects Dental Health With Overall Health

Posted on November 21, 2019

While periodontal disease is accepted by the medical community for its links to cardiovascular problems and diabetes, the connection between other dental conditions and whole body health have yet to be extensively recognized.  The International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT) hopes to change that with its new integrative health podcast series Word of Mouth

"The podcast series we're launching today has a unique focus on the relationship between oral health and overall health, which is also known as the oral-systemic connection," explains IAOMT President Carl McMillan, DMD. "All too often, dentistry is excluded from medical care, resulting in a disconnect between the treatment of the mouth and treatment of the rest of the body. This is dangerous because oral health conditions have been scientifically associated with a wide range of systemic illnesses. We're using our podcast series to raise awareness of this issue and improve public health."

In the first episode of Word of Mouth, IAOMT member and past president, Griffin Cole, DDS, NMD, interviews Dave Warwick, DDS, about his new study evaluating the levels of mercury emitted from dental drilling on amalgam fillings.  They discuss the risks associated with mercury exposure for dental professionals who routinely perform work on amalgam fillings and for patients who have these silver-colored fillings in their mouths.

The additional episodes of the Word of Mouth podcast being released today explore two other major talking points relevant to integrative health. In the second episode, IAOMT member and past president, Griffin Cole, DDS, NMD, interviews Val Kanter, DMD, MS, BCNP, IBDM, about regenerative endodontics and the burgeoning controversy over root canals. The third episode features IAOMT member and past president, Mark Wisniewski, DDS, interviewing Boyd Haley, PhD, about the role of oxidative stress in disease and the ability for heavy metal detoxification to reduce oxidative stress and promote healing.

Future episodes of Word of Mouth are already in production, and the IAOMT expects the podcast to be a long-running series that will forge a more integrated approach to dental and medical care. "What happens in the mouth impacts the rest of the body and vice-versa," IAOMT President McMillan reiterates. "Patients can clearly benefit from an integrative approach to treating the health of their whole body. Our Word of Mouth podcast will spread this important message."

The IAOMT is a global network of health professionals who research the oral-systemic connection and educate about the biocompatibility of dental products and practices. This includes assessing risks of mercury fillings, fluoride, root canals, and jawbone osteonecrosis. The IAOMT is a non-profit organization and has been dedicated to protecting public health and the environment since it was founded in 1984.

New Dentsply Sirona Website Expands World-Class Education Offerings

Posted on November 20, 2019

The Dentsply Sirona Academy provides the clinical and technical knowledge, skills, and inspiration that dental professionals need to develop themselves and their practices. This education encompasses more than 11,000 courses, meetings, and events, 42 Education Centers including those in Charlotte, North Carolina, and Bensheim, Germany, and now an expanded online presence on www.dentsplysirona.com. The “learn” section of the new state-of-the art online platform for the US markets features a customer-focused site design with easy navigation, an easier registration process, and better search options. Above all, dental professionals benefit from a broader selection of courses and videos.

Dental professionals benefit from new courses ranging from quick tips to in-depth procedural webinars

With an already broad selection of endodontics, implants, preventive, and restorative courses and videos, Dentsply Sirona has now added new courses on topics including local anesthesia, digital dentistry, endodontics, implants, oral surgery, practice management, preventive care, and restorative dentistry. The online Academy also offers more than 800 free videoclips that demonstrate tips and tricks for specific dental procedures. Moreover, it is a quick way to access more than 250 of the brightest minds in dentistry. Experts including Dr. Sergio Kuttler, Dr. Natanya Padachey, and Dr. David Wong present the latest evidence-based scientific insights in dentistry.

Key features of the new “learn” section of the website include one-stop access to online and in-person education and an enhanced search and navigation function which makes it easy to search and find live courses, on-demand content, case studies, and webinars. A user-friendly site design completes the web experience.

“The new site was rolled out in phases over the last few months. We expect to continually improve the website based on ongoing testing and customer feedback. In fact, we have already made changes based on input. Our online dental courses are unrivaled in breadth and depth and, with our brand-new website, very convenient to use,” adds Chidam Chidambaram, Senior Vice President and Chief Digital/Marketing Officer at Dentsply Sirona.

“Shop,” “Learn,” “Discover” – an easy and intuitive customer experience

Every element of the customer experience and the back-end infrastructure has been redesigned with the customer in mind. The new website is faster, simpler, and makes it easier for the Endodontics, Orthodontics, & Implants customers in the US to discover, learn, and buy.

A place to buy products is called “Shop.” The shop will allow customers to buy in different ways using search, quick order, reorder, or buy by procedure. Additionally, the site offers comprehensive product information to help customers with their buying decisions, convenient access to account information, order history, and past invoices.

Under “Discover,” customers can explore how best to use products that Dentsply Sirona offers across all major dental procedures.

Digital transformation starts with the customer

Dentsply Sirona’s approach to its digital transformation is to make it easy for the customer to interact with the company. “With our digital transformation initiatives, we will completely change how we approach our customers,” explains CEO Don Casey. “This is all about our customers and how we can make it easy for them to serve their patients and improve their practices.”

Endodontists from All Three Boston Dental Schools Donate Root Canals to Local Patients in Need

Posted on November 20, 2019

American Association of Endodontists members from Boston, Harvard and Tufts Dental Schools form trifecta of free care on “Teeth Worth Saving Day”

Yesterday, the American Association of Endodontists (AAE) provided more than 50 endodontic treatments (namely root canals) to patients in need in the Boston area. The services were given in collaboration with the endodontics departments at all three Boston dental schools: Boston University Henry M. Goldman School of Dental Medicine, Department of Endodontics; Harvard School of Dental Medicine, Division of Endodontics; and Tufts University School of Dental Medicine, Department of Endodontics.

As part of its Worth Saving campaign, which emphasizes the importance of saving natural treasures like your teeth, the AAE held a contest last March spotlighting four beautiful natural landmarks from around the country and asked Americans to vote on which one they felt was most “worth saving.” Boston’s Charles River Esplanade, preserved by the Esplanade Association, won the contest and with it a $20,000 donation from AAE, as well as $30,000 in donated endodontic care for Boston residents.

As home to more dental schools than any other U.S. city, all three Boston dental schools volunteered to provide the endodontic treatments, forming a trifecta of donated care just in time for the holidays. The treatments performed yesterday totaled more than $59,000 in value -- well over the amount promised.

“We’re thrilled to give back to the city of Boston and to collaborate with the endodontics departments of renowned dental schools in the area,” said Keith V. Krell, D.D.S., M.S., M.A., president of the AAE. “We are grateful for the schools’ generosity. And congratulations to the Charles River Esplanade for winning our contest and reminding us that there is so much worth saving – from natural landmarks to our natural teeth.”

Patients were pre-screened and pre-qualified based on need. From the Department of Endodontics at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine, a staff of 14 residents and three faculty participated in the initiative, treating 15 patients. Additionally, a team of three dental assistants and five administration staff led coordination efforts.

At Harvard University to Harvard School of Dental Medicine, Division of Endodontics, a staff of six residents performed treatments, along with two faculty and more than 10 dental student and first-year resident volunteers, on a total of 17 patients. Procedures included root canal treatment, retreatment, vital pulp therapy and some restorative work. They also had great assistance from their colleagues at the Charles River Community Health Center, to find the patients in need.

At Boston University Department of Endodontics, three administrative staff and two dental assistants provided support and coordination for 19 residents and six faculty members to help save teeth through endodontic procedures in an exceptional event. Patients from local health centers (including Harbor Health and Dimock) and internal patients with specific financial needs were treated within the postgraduate clinic at the Goldman School of Dental Medicine. A total of 20 endodontic procedures were successfully performed on 19 patients at Boston University.

About the American Association of Endodontists: The American Association of Endodontists (AAE) is headquartered in Chicago and represents more than 8,000 members worldwide. Endodontics is one of nine dental specialties formally recognized by the American Dental Association. The AAE, founded in 1943, is dedicated to excellence in the art and science of endodontics and to the highest standard of patient care. The Association inspires its members to pursue professional advancement and personal fulfillment through education, research, advocacy, leadership, communication and service.

Posted on November 20, 2019

Leading manufacturer of digital dental equipment and education systems Dentsply Sirona continues to shape young dentists of tomorrow with the successful installation of a simulation and technology lab for pre-clinical education at University of Missouri-Kansas City Dental School (UMKC).The installation, led by Dentsply Sirona’s International Special Clinic Solutions (ISCS) division, introduced more than a hundred new and ergonomically accurate simulator units which enable UMKC dental students to practice on "close to real life" models.

A realistic environment to train future dentists

Last month, two UMKC training laboratories were equipped with 109 Intego student simulator units and two instructor units for its School of Dentistry students. The upgraded training labs now allow students to learn and practice in a realistic clinical setting from the very start as all dental procedures can be simulated under ergonomic conditions with correct instrumentation technique. The configuration of the workstations allows utmost flexibility, such as easy switching from right-handed treatments to left-handed. Thanks to its modular concept, the units are also suitable for both UMKC dental and dental hygiene curricula and include the option to add further functions and technological updates in digital dentistry in the future. 

"The planning and research process were crucial to the success of this project at UMKC. Working closely with the university leaders to map their ideas and visions for the upcoming years allowed us to deliver an individually tailored product and training portfolio from start to finish,” says Peter Rössling, Dentsply Sirona Sales Director of International Special Clinic Solutions USA/Canada. “This is our first simulator installation of its kind in the US, and we look forward to bringing our technology to more students in the country.”

Universities and large clinics all around the globe from Germany to South Africa and New Zealand trust the long-term expertise of Dentsply Sirona’s ISCS division and its comprehensive approach. From consultation and planning to training and global support, ISCS ensures each customer’s unique vision is brought to life.

The high-quality equipment at UMKC has been designed and produced in Germany using particularly robust materials ideal for university settings.

Glidewell Dental Unveils Dynamic Education Center for Emerging Techniques in Dental Technology

Posted on November 19, 2019

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., November 19, 2019 - On Sept. 16, 2019, Glidewell Dental hosted California State Senator Ling Ling Chang for the grand opening and ribbon-cutting ceremony of the company’s all-new, 10,000-square-foot Education Center. True to the company’s emphasis on dental technology and research and development, the new facility features two large classrooms, state-of-the-art displays, and connectivity to numerous Glidewell campuses to promote large-scale and remote training for laboratory technicians and a range of other dental professionals who form the backbone of the company’s industry-leading dental lab services.

“I’ve toured a ton of companies and I’ve not seen anything like this,” Senator Chang said. “You have a whole environment geared toward supporting your employees, and it’s absolutely amazing.”

Imbued with CAD/CAM technology and the industry’s latest dental software and lab equipment, the Education Center advances the longstanding mission of President and CEO Jim Glidewell, CDT, to develop the careers and skillsets of the company’s employees while implementing technologies that make dentistry more precise and efficient.

“Investing our resources in R&D and our employees has always been a top priority for our company,” Glidewell said. “Our new education center embodies that principle and will help our employees as they strive toward bigger and brighter futures in dental technology.”

Senator Chang observed: “It seems like a very family-oriented environment. I was just telling Mr. Glidewell that folks constantly bring up the future of work and the concern about technology taking over, but he has been able to continue growing his workforce even with technology being part of the organization. That speaks volumes, and I’m going to bring my colleagues down here to take a tour of this amazing organization because this is truly a model.” Senator Chang went on to favorably compare Glidewell to other high-profile companies driving job growth through technological innovation.

With about 50 Glidewell managers and executives in attendance, Senator Chang commemorated the Center’s opening with an official Certificate of Recognition presented to Glidewell Dental “in celebration of your new educational facility and in honor of your commitment to the community.”
