Dental Tribune United Kingdom Edition

April 15-21, 201328 Industry News United Kingdom Edition Plan for Digital Impressions with Plandent Be impressed with the revolutionary solution in digital impression taking - 3ShapeTRIOS® from Plandent. No more mixing or mess with conventional impression materials and significantly fewer re-takes. 3Shape TRIOS® is a no- spray solution - spraying is technique demanding, can ruin scan accuracy, is uncomfortable for patients and prolongs chair-time therefore no-spray is the best option. 3Shape’s technology captures more than 3000 2D images per second - 100 times faster than conventional video cameras. There’s no need to hold the scanner at a specific distance or angle for focus, you can rest the scanner on the teeth for support as you scan which all provide ease of use. View the digital impression being built during scanning and impress your patients whilst making your working life simpler. Freecall Plandent on 0500 500 322 for further information.

Facebook: Evident Twitter: @evidentdental Exciting New Products from GC UK at BDA 2013 GC are at the forefront of research and development and regularly release new products to benefit you. The latest addition to the GC range is everX Posterior. This fibre-reinforced composite is designed to be used as dentine replacement, in conjunction with a conventional composite such as G-ænial Posterior used as enamel replacement. The short fibres of GC everX Posterior will make it a perfect sub-structure to reinforce any composite restoration in large size cavities. Fibres will also prevent and stop crack propagation through the filling, which is considered to be the main cause of composite failures. Thanks to its unique properties, GC everX Posterior opens new possibilities for restorations of extensive cavities at chairside and is the answer to the growing demand for an economic restorative alternative for big size cavities. Advances in glass technology have resulted in the development of hand mixed GC Fuji IX GP EXTRA, a high strength glass ionomer cement with a new generation of glass filler, resulting in a restoration with very high translucency that changes little over time. The result is natural aesthetics never before achievable with conventional glass ionomer. Please visit stand F02 at the BDA Exhibition for a hands-on experience or for further information please contact GC UK on 01908 218 999.

Penny sale Buy a 5L PracticeSafe Soak for only £78.75 before the end of April and get a second 5L PracticeSafe Soak for only one pence! PracticeSafe Soak from Kemdent is a disinfectant for the disinfection of alginate, silicone and polyether impressions. Infection prevention and control is the single most important task that all the dental team are involved in. It is important to emphasise that infection prevention and control is the responsibility of everyone. CQC and the HTM guidelines recommend that impressions are always soaked immediately after removal from the mouth. The mouth and saliva are ideal places for bugs. They have a warm moist environment, making it easy for the bugs to be passed to the dentist/dental technician and then onto further patients. PracticeSafe Soak needs only three minutes to disinfect bacteria, fungi and viruses.This disinfectant concentrate is dispensed from the container with a required volume to make a 3% solution, e.g. for a 1 litre soak, 30 ml would be dispensed.
