The company will feature the prod- ucts in its new Total Technology Pavilion, a large space with functioning equipment to allow hands-on demonstrations and dis- cussion of the full range of applica- tions. The pavil- ion also features an overview pre- sentation of the total-technology concept, along with brief presentations by practic- ing dentists who have deployed such tech- nologies in their practices. “We are proud to present the Total Tech- nology Pavilion at the Chicago Dental Soci- ety Midwinter Meeting and beyond,” said John Bernhard, director of marketing at BI- OLASE. “It represents the collective efforts ofmultipleteamstocreateanenvironment where dental professionals can spend time with these groundbreaking technologies to gainanunderstandingoftheirapplications in the dental clinic.” EPIC standard set for diode lasers New to the Total Technology Pavilion this year is the EPIC Total Diode Solution, the newest laser from BIOLASE. It’s described as being packed with one category-exclu- sive feature after another, setting a new standard in diode laser performance and value. A graphical touchscreen gives den- tists fingertip access to as many as 20 com- mon soft-tissue procedure presets — plus 20-minute full-mouth whitening and FDA- cleared temporary pain relief. Additionally, EPIC can be a financial boon for many prac- tices because of its integrated, FDA-cleared protocols for laser hygiene and perio as an adjunct to scaling and root planning. Plus, a new ComfortPulse setting reduces pulse length to as little as one ten-millionth of a second to avoid heat build-up at the surgi- cal site — for fast tissue cutting with less patient discomfort. 3Shape scanner and WaterLase lasers Another addition to the Technology Pavil- ion is the 3Shape TRIOS digital intraoral scanner system. The TRIOS digital solu- tion, which includes a hand-held scanner, operator's control cart and intuitive soft- ware, provides faster impression taking, improved accuracy and clinical results, reduced need for retakes and less adjust- ment and grinding. TRIOS' unique features include: spray-free scanning; high accu- racy optimized for an extensive range of indications; clinical scan validation; online communicationwiththedentallab;andin- tuitive Smart-Touch user interfacing. Other products in the pavilion include WaterLase iPlus, WaterLase MDX and Wa- terLase MD Turbo, the company’s full range of all-tissue laser devices.
