Your Armamentarium

Figure A | Super-Snap X-Treme™

Shofu’s Super Snap X-Treme aluminum oxide disks offer extra thickness for added tactile feel, flexibility and durability. New 3D semispherical grits produce X-Treme gloss results.

Figure B | LOCATOR® Overdenture Implant System (LODI)

ZEST Anchors’ LOCATOR Overdenture Implant System features a narrow diameter implant combined with a LOCATOR Attachment, providing clinicians with a solution to the attachment limitations often found with O-ball mini implants. It also features critical elements that optimize patient satisfaction.

Figure C | Alignment Pins

Sterngold Dental’s Alignment Pins can help identify and show the alignment of implants. Although the pins alone cannot give exact identity of the implant, they can determine which prosthetic screw will properly fit inside the implant. This information, along with the design and size of the implant head, will help to identify which abutments can be used.

Figure D | Helios 3000 LED Operating Light

Pelton & Crane’s Helios 3000 LED Operating Light, with patented color-mixing LED technology, delivers a precisely calibrated 3” x 6” light pattern for optimal illumination of the oral cavity. It provides benefits such as a no-cure composite setting, multiple intensity options, and nearly zero radiant heat emission.

Figure E | Cybird XD

Cybird XD is an exceptionally powerful LED curing light that is capable of instantly polymerizing light-cured dental materials in as little as 1.5 seconds. Cybird XD is particularly designed for dental professionals who are in need of super-fast light curing and orthodontic bonding speed to reduce chair time.

Figure F | One Piece Mini Dental Implant

The Shatkin F.I.R.S.T. One Piece Mini Dental Implant features a blossom thread design at the apical portion and micro threads at the abutment end. It incorporates a one piece tapered abutment with platform switching. It also features the patented Ossean® surface that encourages a faster osseointegration period.

Figure G | Trabecular Metal™ Dental Implant

Zimmer Dental’s Trabecular Metal Dental Implant adds dimension to implant dentistry. The implant features an osteoconductive mid-section that is structurally and biomechanically similar to cancellous bone. Portions of the implant also utilize Zimmer Dental’s MTX® microtextured surface, documented to achieve high levels of bone-to-implant contact.

Figure H | Bayflex™ Partials

Bayflex partials from Bayshore Dental are ideal for patients with monomer sensitivity, and as a healing appliance for implant cases. Available in five gingival shades, Bayflex partials feature lightweight thermoplastic that’s comfortable and practically invisible, and they will not warp or become brittle.

Figure G | NuSmile® ZR Pediatric Crowns

NuSmile Pediatric Crowns’s NuSmile ZR is a revolutionary zirconia crown that represents the perfect balance of art and science for pediatric dentistry. Made from monolithic zirconia, NuSmile ZR is like ceramic steel and mimics the anatomical contours of natural primary teeth to achieve the most natural clinical outcome.
