Continu delivers CQC compliant solution for fast, effective disinfection of dentures A recent CQC inspection commented that “Inspectors could not find evidence to show denture work was disinfected before fitting.” Disinfecting dentures or other removable orthodontic appliances quickly and safely is not as easy as it may sound, but Continu Mouthwear Disinfectant offers an ideal solution. The Continu Mouthwear product is simply sprayed onto the appliance, left for 30 seconds and then rinsed off to deliver effective and compliant disinfection. In addition to the mouthwear disinfectant, Continu offers a complete range of alcohol free products for disinfection or cleaning of hands, surfaces, water lines, dental impressions, ultrasonic baths and instruments. With products designed to address every area of infection control within your practice, Continu from Nuview delivers a comprehensive solution to reduce the risk of cross contamination and maintain compliance with HTM01-05 and CQC standards.

By excluding anatomy outside the jawline, the Reuleaux triangular X-ray field reduces patient exposure by around 15 per cent. Capturing posterior dentition that might be missed by a conventional 80mm cylindrical FOV scanner, the R100 field includes relevant anatomy equivalent to a conventional 100mm cylindrical diameter FOV. This enlarged field of view is important when planning implant cases requiring surgical guides and full arch restoration. The same machine also provides five smaller fields of view down to just 40mm diameter. Morita R100 standard features • High speed, high quality, low dose image • Six field of view options (40mm diameter to R100) • Easy and accurate automatic scout positioning • Wide choice of panoramic imaging modes All Morita’s 3D units include a unique automatic Dose Reduction feature. Built in Japan by J Morita Manufacturing Corporation, Morita cone beam CT scanners provide world renowned image quality. They give dentists confidence of high definition, distortion-free pictures. The technology is proving increasingly indispensable in implant dentistry, endodontics and oral surgery diagnosis and treatment planning. Test drive the Morita R100 For your FREE demonstration call Robert Pounds at The Dental Imaging Company Tel: 0845 602 4944, Email: Does your demo unit need An MOT? A couple of years ago Oral-B produced some working display models to support dental professionals in their efforts to communicate proper brushing technique. These units were provided free of charge to dental practices and contain a mouth model, all refill heads in the range, educational literature as well as an Oral-B Triumph with SmartGuide. Depending on the level of use, some of these units may require an ‘MOT’ and that’s why Oral-B is inviting practices to contact them if any elements of the kit require replacing. Their customer service team will be calling practices over a three month period to see if they require any replacement parts. If the unit is looking a little tired, after two years of hard work, Oral-B will even replace the entire unit for free. Practices should contact the Customer Service line on 0870-2421850. The Oral B Triumph 5000 demonstration unit facilitates chair side instruction and practical demonstration of the best brushing techniques and habits. This tool will enable delivery of a much more powerful and long lasting message and will be helpful in supporting communications with patients new to electric toothbrushes and those whose regime needs modification.

This is an at-home teeth whitening formula, designed to be dispensed by a dental professional, in the form of custom fit trays into which whitening gel is applied. The trays are worn twice a day for 15 to 30 minutes depending on the advice of the dental professional, and will give patients a noticeably whiter smile within two weeks. Zoom DayWhite 6 per cent contains Amorphous Calcium Phosphate (ACP), which when combined with fluoride, spreads over the surface of teeth and bonds with the enamel to provide enamel protection, improved luster and shine, with reduced sensitivity when compared with teeth whitened without ACP. The product provides patients with a healthy white smile and patients who have used it experienced less fadeback to their original tooth colour after six months. Philips Zoom DayWhite 6 per cent HP with ACP is compliant with the new European Commission directive which prohibits the commercialisation of any whitening products in the European Union (EU) containing more than six per cent hydrogen peroxide.
