Also taking centre stage at the show will be the company’s new 900 Series LED operating light. As with their treatment centres, these are built to last and provide excellent light output over their projected lifetime, which is a staggering 40,000 hours or around 25 years for the average user. The ten shadow-less beams emit excellent light colour immediately making it ideal for colour matching as well as reducing eye fatigue. As individual requirements and preferences vary the light can also be adjusted between 4,000 and 32,000 LUX. The 900 LED light and the tbCompass offer flexibility at a great price.

She has been recommending the Waterpik® Water Flosser to patients for over six months. “I like the Waterpik® Water Flosser,” she says. “I recommend it to many of my patients who don’t or won’t floss, or who struggle with the technique, and for patients who need considerable improvement in their plaque control. “One particular patient of mine presented with 6-7mm pockets posteriorly, continuous food traps, subgingival plaque and very inflamed gums. “Since using the Water Flosser his inflammation has been reduced and pockets reduced by 1-2mm and less plaque and food debris between his teeth.” The Waterpik® Water Flosser helps to remove bacteria deep below the gum line, where brushing and string flossing cannot reach. With four different tips that all rotate 360 degrees, all areas of the mouth can be reached for a complete clean.
