KaVo Kerr Group, a global portfolio of leading dental brands, plans to present 35+ new products at the 36th International Dental Show (IDS) in Cologne. KaVo Kerr Group delivers products and solutions to 99% of dental practices worldwide, making IDS — the world’s leading trade fair for the dental industry — the ideal stage to share the latest KaVo Kerr Group has to offer. The meeting, March 10‐14, expects more than 125,000 attendees from 149 different countries.
The 35+ launches include brand-new products, products released in North America but new to the global market, and updates designed to take legacy products to the next level. These releases will cover topics including digital imaging, toCAD/CAM, operatory units, handpieces, and a wide range of consumables. The breadth and depth of product development on display not only reinforces the role of KaVo Kerr Group as a leader in innovation, but also will highlight the organization’s unmatched role in delivering complete workflow solutions and introduce its own sophisticated approach to digital dentistry.
Among the 35+ products introduced at IDS, highlights include:
• The KaVo Lythos Intraoral Scanner is designed to replace traditional impressions, facilitating a fully integrated workflow. Dentists can capture highly detailed images quickly, without powder, in an intuitive and flexible scanning workflow that offers the clinician maximum flexibility: easily rescan anytime during the scanning process, review data at any point during or after processing the scan, or use the touch screen to rotate the model in an infinite number of ways for heightened visibility of captured data. Dentists can proceed to complete design in‐office or outsource complex design cases to KaVo’s unique Remote Design Service by wirelessly uploading scan data to the cloud.
• The KaVo MASTERmatic Series offers excellent visibility and access for speed increasing instruments, combined with maximum precision and durability. Its new design and product features — including a 20% reduction in head size — make it the ideal replacement to the 12‐year leader in the Premium series, GENTLEpower.
• Kerr SonicFill 2 is an improved version of SonicFill, the market‐leading bulk fill composite system. With enhanced esthetics and even easier use, the new system will help dentists to be more efficient and productive while improving the quality of the final outcome, reliably placing and curing restorations up to 5mm in depth in a single increment.
• The KaVo ESTETICA E70/E80 Vision is a delivery system designed to help dental professionals get in touch with their vision for optimized chairside treatment. Product features include sensitive touch screens with a completely new user interface; hygiene center with automated cleaning programs; a modern patient communication system with integrated intraoral camera and hi‐res KaVo HD screens; and unique system software CONEXIO for direct access to all relevant patient data. Its innovative suspended chair concept features new arm rests and the ability to accommodate patients up to 180 kg.
On the evening of March 10, KaVo Kerr Group will host the “Art of Innovation” event, inviting dental professionals, dealer partners, industry leaders, and global media to see many of the new products up close. This first‐class event takes place at the Flora Köln, a historic formal park and botanical garden located adjacent to the Cologne Zoological Garden.
“It was just over a year ago that KaVo Kerr Group formally brought together our world-class dental brands under one identity, with shared values and a lasting commitment to the dental profession,” said Henk van Duijnhoven, Senior Vice President of the KaVo Kerr Group. “We have started the work of taking more than 500 years of combined experience among these market leading brands and translating that expertise into leading product innovation that improves patient care and enhances clinical workflows for dental professionals. We can’t wait to showcase our unmatched global brand on this one-of-a-kind global stage.”
