Posted on November 30, 2018

Ivoclar Vivadent announces the introduction of its Efficient Esthetics Product Portfolio for direct restorative procedures. Designed to help dentists achieve high-quality esthetic restorations with greater efficiency and predictability, the product combination reduces working steps by up to 58%, without compromising restoration durability. The optimally coordinated products include the Tetric® Evo-Line family of composites, Adhese® Universal, Bluephase® Style LED curing light, and OptraGate® lip and cheek retractor. When used in combination, simplicity meets esthetics for isolating, bonding, restoring, and curing during direct restorative procedures.

High Esthetics

The Tetric® Evo-Line composites include four well-coordinated resins for direct restorative needs and feature refractive index technology to create beautiful, esthetic restorations in true A-D shades. Sculptable Tetric EvoCeram® and flowable Tetric EvoFlow® are universal 2-mm layering composites for anterior and posterior restorations. Sculptable Tetric EvoCeram® Bulk Fill and flowable Tetric EvoFlow® Bulk Fill can both be used for 4-mm bulk placement in the posterior region to save clinicians up to 47% of placement time compared to conventional composites.

High Bond Strength

With Adhese® Universal—a single-component, light-cured adhesive for direct and indirect bonding procedures and all etching protocols—high bond strengths (>25 MPa) can be achieved. The only universal bonding agent available in the innovative VivaPen®, Adhese® Universal achieves predictable results with virtually no sensitivity, while simultaneously promoting cost-effective and efficient use: 3 times more applications per ml compared to bottles.

Reliable Curing

Designed specifically for intraoral polymerization of light-curing dental materials, the Bluephase® Style high powered Polywave™ LED curing light features a 10-mm probe that covers the surface of most preparations in one cycle.

Quick & Easy Retraction

OptraGate® is the single use, latex-fee lip and cheek retractor with a unique flexibility and elasticity that make it quick and easy for dental professionals to place and comfortable for patients to wear.

Innovative Anesthetic Syringe Ensures Stopper Stays Inside Carpule

Posted on November 30, 2018

The harpoon on traditional aspirating syringes can pull the rubber stopper completely out of the anesthetic carpule when trying to unload or change cartridges, which is not only unsafe, but wastes precious time as well. Invented by a dentist, the plunger on the Pike Anesthetic Syringe features a modified sleeve that positively separates the harpoon from the stopper when retracted. The syringe’s patent-pending design works every time, so practitioners will never have to deal with this hassle again. The Pike Syringe is fully autoclavable and compatible with all standard anesthetic carpules and needles.

For over 35 years, Practicon has partnered with dental professionals to advance patient care, increase productivity and profitability, and heighten professional enjoyment by bringing “practical innovations” to dentistry. Practicon’s growing product line ranges from hard-to-find problem solvers to cost-effective everyday supplies. For more information, visit www.Practicon.com or telephone (800) 959-9505.







Introducing the Next Generation of Colgate Total® Toothpaste

Posted on November 29, 2018

Colgate® is excited to introduce the Next Generation of Colgate Total®. New Colgate Total®SF contains a new Stannous Fluoride formula stabilized with Zinc Phosphate that fights plaque-causing bacteria on 100% of mouth surfaces*1 including teeth, tongue, cheeks, and gums, providing the ideal preventive solution for whole mouth health.

Colgate Total®SF effectively fights harmful bacteria while protecting against bacterial repopulation, significantly reducing the overall bacterial load while creating a protective barrier that helps shield against attachment and regrowth. In development for more than a decade, the unique formula of new Colgate Total®SF is the subject of 28 granted patents and 95 pending patent applications.

Offering comprehensive benefits for the whole mouth, the new advanced formula found in new Colgate Total®SF addresses all indications of the original Colgate Total® including plaque, gingivitis, caries, stain removal/whitening, and calculus. Yet new Colgate Total®SF delivers even more benefits than ever before to help patients achieve superior whole mouth health.

Specifically, ongoing clinical testing of new Colgate Total®SF shows superior reductions vs. ordinary non-antibacterial toothpaste in:

✓ Plaque

✓ Gingivitis

✓ Calculus

What’s more, Colgate Total®SF now provides additional new benefits:

✓ Sensitivity relief

✓ Enhanced enamel strength

✓ Odor neutralization

“The advanced fluoride formula of Colgate Total®SF offers significant advantages versus ordinary fluoride toothpaste, and still retains all of the benefits that dental professionals already love about our original Colgate Total,” remarked Dr. Barbara Shearer, Director of Scientific Affairs for Colgate. “Our advanced fluoride formula provides multiple benefits for the whole mouth. These attractive features combined with a great taste make Colgate Total®SF a great tool to empower dental professionals and patients striving to achieve whole mouth heath.”

*Statistically significant greater reduction of cultivable bacteria in saliva and on tongue, teeth, cheeks, and gums with new Colgate TotalSF vs non-antibacterial fluoride toothpaste after 8 weeks, 12 hours after brushing.

The Dawson Academy’s Airway Symposium returns January 2019

Posted on November 29, 2018

The Dawson Academy’s third Airway Symposium will share the latest information and research about the practical application of diagnosing, evaluating and treating airway and sleep-disordered breathing in children and adults.

The American Dental Association recommends that dentists screen patients for medical and dental problems that can be related to airway disorders, such as TMJ issues, bruxism, teeth erosion, gastric reflux, and esophageal and throat cancer. The two-day Airway Symposium will discuss the anatomical evolution resulting in airway and breathing issues, advancements in recognizing these issues and explain how dentists can evaluate and diagnose these disorders.

Internationally known dentists will bring their expertise in different dental fields to assist other dental professionals to better understand airway and breathing disorders. The instructors at the Symposium in St. Petersburg, Florida are:

Dr. DeWitt Wilkerson, general practitioner, senior faculty member and director of dental medicine curriculum at The Dawson Academy. Dr. Wilkerson is a leader in research and education on dentistry’s role in the diagnosis and medical management of disordered breathing. He launched The Dawson Academy’s annual Airway Symposium in 2017 and has lectured on integrative dental medicine, whole health dental treatments and airway/dental sleep medicine all over the world.

Dr. Kevin Boyd, a board-certified pediatric dentist practicing in Chicago. Dr. Boyd is also an attending instructor in the residency-training program in Pediatric Dentistry at Lurie Children’s Hospital. His clinical approach to treating toddlers and children orthodontically focuses on how facial structure, bone growth, and oral hygiene can directly impact a child's sleeping habits, jaw growth, crooked teeth, and breathing patterns.

Dr. Barry Raphael, an orthodontist in New York. Dr. Raphael uses techniques designed to provide children and teens with an optimal airway and breathing pattern by addressing anatomical, physiological and behavioral aspects of growth and development. Dr. Raphael is immediate past-president of the New Jersey Association of Orthodontics and is on the organizing committee for the ADA Conference on Children's Airway Health.

Dr. Marianna Evans, an orthodontist and periodontist in the Philadelphia area. Dr. Evans divides her time between private practice, teaching at the University of Pennsylvania Department of Orthodontics and clinical research. She lectures on airway orthodontics and periodontal plastic surgery. She co-founded the OrthoPerio Institute and recently developed 4D Morphotropic Orthodontics™, an airway-focused preservative orthodontic technique.

During the two-day course, dental professionals will:

-Discover the impact and evolution of airway and breathing disorders from childhood through adulthood.

-Connect the relationship between airway disorders and occlusion.

-Learn how the experts diagnose, evaluate and treat these disorders.

-Understand how to incorporate the concepts into your practice.

The Dawson Academy’s Third Annual Airway Symposium will be held Jan. 18-19, 2019 at the Hilton St. Petersburg Bayfront, 333 First Street S. in St. Petersburg, Florida. The course provides 16 hours of continuing education (CE) credits.

Declining Reimbursement Rates a Key Concern among Dentists, Reports National Survey from Bankers Healthcare Group

Posted on November 28, 2018

Declining reimbursement rates is the top industry concern among dentists, according to a 2018 national survey from Bankers Healthcare Group, a leading provider of financial solutions for healthcare professionals. Nearly three-quarters (72%) of 413 licensed dentists (both practice owners and independent practitioners) surveyed by BHG indicated high levels of concern about this trend’s impact on the industry.

“Lower reimbursement rates mean dentists take in less income, so it’s not surprising that this was the most cited concern among the audience,” said Al Crawford, Original Founder, Chairman and CEO of BHG.

When asked to rate other concerns in the industry, dentist cited:

Impact of DSOs/corporate dentistry: 61% highly concerned

This issue was less like to be a concern among younger dentists (42%) and more likely to be a concern among those practicing in a suburban office (71%)

Increasing competition saturating the industry: 49% highly concerned 

This was more frequently cited by those practicing in an urban (53%) or suburban (51%) location and those aged 35-49 years old (54%)

Government healthcare programs: 43% highly concerned 

This was more likely to be cited by younger dentists (51%) and those working in an urban office (48%)

One-quarter of those surveyed listed “Other” additional industry concerns, including the cost of equipment; availability of equipment; patients’ access to care; cost of education; and insurance.

Benco Dental Presents Five Solutions to GNYDM Audience

Posted on November 28, 2018

Benco Dental has introduced five insightful solutions from its vendor partners and branded lines. Among them: groundbreaking offerings from Herman Miller, PRO-SYS, Carestream Dental, exocad GmbH, and Convergent.

  • Herman Miller Compass: The sophisticated furnishings of Herman Miller and Nemschoff have been used in stylish, versus sterilizing, healthcare environments for five decades, elevating the human experience of care. As a Herman Miller Healthcare dealer, Benco Dental offers oral health professionals an elevated new world in which to work. Compass cabinetry for the dental operatory presents a system designed for change. Components are easily assembled, removed, rearranged, and refreshed. Storage can be quickly relocated; dental utilities can be easily accessed, added, or modified; and damaged product can be easily replaced without demolition. Tiles and components are wrapped in durable material that requires no edge banding. The results: unmatched flexibility with a seamless, cleanable, durable surface. Intelligent design and efficient installation make the purchase price affordable.

  • PRO-SYS VarioSonic: After two years of R&D, Benco Brands is proud to release the PRO-SYS VarioSonic electric toothbrush—the first sonic toothbrush specially designed for healthy patients, as well as patients with compromised soft tissue. With five different brush heads of various stiffnesses in the box and five distinct speeds, the VarioSonic allows 25 possible intensities—perfect for every oral condition. VarioSonic features Dupont™ filaments, the gold standard of dental bristles, a travel case, a battery that lasts a full month, and a beautiful package that dentists will be proud to present to their patients. Best of all, it’s priced at two thirds less than the market leader, so it’s a power brush that anyone can afford.

  • Carestream CS 3100 Milling System: Expand chairside restorative treatment options and deliver aesthetic, accurate, and durable restorations. CS 3100 offers three distinct fabrication options, including milling, grinding, and carving, and delivers hybrid resin and ceramic restorations—ideal for full contour crowns, inlays, onlays, veneers, and three-element bridges. This quiet, vibration-free mill can be used anywhere in the dental practice. Its compact design and small footprint allow ease of installation. Integration makes it all possible—the CS 3100 features integrated compressed air and a cooling circuit, and no water supply or drain is needed. Automatic calibration and easy cleaning and handling offer accessibility for use by every staff member.

  • OneVisit Chairside powered by exocad: At Benco Dental, the OneVisit concept for CAD/CAM same-day dentistry launched in 2014 as the first open in-office restoration production system with a focus on customer choice. At exocad GmbH, ChairsideCAD launched earlier this year as the first complete open architecture CAD/CAM software platform. The result of their recent collaboration: OneVisit Chairside powered by exocad, an open-architecture CAD/CAM software platform for single-visit dentistry. The Chairside workflow is streamlined, easy to learn, and optimized for usage in the dental practice, including a step-by-step guide through the design process. In just a few steps, OneVisit Chairside creates highly esthetic proposals with minimal post processing. Experience matters, and the exocad platform is based on the same proven technology as its lab software, which is renowned for its reliability and robust features.

  • The Next Generation of Solea® by Convergent Dental, Inc.: The new, smaller Solea cuts faster, smoother, and 99.2% anesthesia-free and features enhanced software and improved remote access with a 4G LTE mobile data connection. The industry-leading CO2 all-tissue dental laser, Solea, earned its reputation for enabling dramatic practice growth and reduced stress for dentists and patients by taking anesthesia, bleeding, sutures, and discomfort out of the dental experience. Its latest advancements provide unprecedented clinical performance, significant software upgrades, improved ergonomics, increased accessibility, and a smaller footprint (15% slimmer). Before launch of this platform, Solea dentists reported doing four to six more procedures per day while feeling like they were doing less work. Now they can expect all those benefits with enhanced ergonomics—a lighter, more maneuverable handpiece with improved rotation and a wider range of motion. 

Benco Dental will feature these five insightful solutions, alongside leading-edge services, equipment, and merchandise, at the Greater New York Dental Meeting, through November 28, at Booth 1617.
